Freeware Review: Parallel Space

This is the first in a series of articles that will highlight some of the best free software (freeware) available on the 'net.  Sometimes software can be expensive and even inaccessible in this part of the world, so it's cool to be aware of free alternatives as well as applications that can help us in everyday life.
One such program is Parallel Space.  Parallel Space allows you to run two instances of the same app on a singular android.  So for instance you can have two Whatsapp accounts or two Messenger accounts (which I think is what most people use Parallel Space for) on the same android, which really comes in useful if for instance like many of us you're using a dual-sim 'droid and want a Whatsapp account allocated to each of your numbers.  Also if you have two separate Facebook accounts now you can receive messages from them both without the hassle of logging in and out.

The only thing I don't particularly like about Parallel Space is that every time you boot your phone you have to remember to start the program and activate the desired apps you want cloned, which I often forget to do since under normal circumstances programs like Whatsapp and Messenger don't need to be turned on every time you boot your 'droid.  However the original default accounts will still start automatically once you turn on your phone.
