HotKeyMan 1.21
Easily create keyboard shortcuts which can be used in all your programs

HotKeyMan is an interesting tool which makes it easy to set up personal keyboard shortcuts to speed up your PC operations.

This starts very simply, with some basic shortcuts created during the installation process. Pressing Win + N will launch Notepad, for instance, whatever you might be doing. And pressing Win + S captures the current screen, then allows you to save the image to file with a click.

But that's just the start. Create a hotkey and you're able to choose the key itself, before selecting from a lengthy list of possible actions. Your shortcut can minimise, maximise or close the active window; open a document or launch a program; fire up the default browser with your chosen website; place the content of a given file in the clipboard; capture the active window or screen; exit Windows, or even send keystrokes to the current window.

These features are generally implemented in a very basic way, so for instance you can't send an Alt+F keystroke to open a menu in the current application, which limits HotKeyMan's possibilities for automation. The program is lightweight and easy to use, though, and if your needs are straightforward then it could still be very handy.

Recent changes have included the following:

HotKeyMan 1.21 - 16. jan. 2013
+ Open app settings folder button in settings window
+ Quick search in hotkey settings window
+ New hotkey function for showing HotKeyMan hotkeys on screen
* Will no longer allow the program to run more than one instance at a time

Verdict:

HotKeyMan is a simple free tool which makes it easy to automate some basic PC tasks

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
