Android has seen a huge boom all around the world and one of the biggest reason for it is the wide variety of options to choose from. And once you have a lot of your friends shifting to one platform, that can only mean a good thing. The best way to describe WhatsApp Messenger would be calling it the BBM of the Android world. If you aren't able to guess what BBM is, then for you, it is the BlackBerry Messenger. This app is the perfect way to literally send unlimited messages to your friends and be only limited by your data connection (either 3G/2G or Wi-fi). The best part of WhatsApp is the fact that because you need to register for the service using your mobile number, you can immediately start chatting with people in your phone address book who are WhatsApp users already. You can send videos, images, voice notes to your friends and contacts and share your location with them, exchange contacts, broadcast messages and MMS to many contacts at once and so so much more. WhatsApp is available for Android, BlackBerry, Apple iPhone, Windows Phone and Nokia phones so its made sure that you shall never run out of friends to talk to for the whole day. So what are you waiting for, download WhatsApp for FREE from Google Play Store (formerly Android Market) and let your thumbs be busy.

You do not wish to use a touchscreen phone because you know that is has a crappy keyboard that will make life impossible for you. Understood. But, today's mobile OSes have some some amazing touchscreen keyboards as in Windows Phone and Apple iOS that you would love to type in them any day. But the stock Android Qwerty keyboard isn't as good or as functional. So what do you do? Well of course, you get yourself the best keyboard available on the street. And SwiftKey X does just that, it makes your Android phone have the best keyboard out there. Now the layout and everything is good but the highlight of this keyboard has to be it's prediction. Its that good that I sometimes type out a whole message without even pressing a letter even ONCE. Typing long emails and messages becomes so much less of a haggle and more of a delightful feeling. The keyboard theme choices and pretty nice too and can be selected according to the persona that fits you. I can only wish that this becomes the default Android keyboard in the future.
