SpeedyPainter
A lightweight and portable painting application

SpeedyPainter is a lightweight and easy-to-use painting tool.

The program is portable, and tiny, so it's no surprise that the interface is very basic. There are no menus, no toolbars. Just a few buttons and sliders scattered around the drawing area.

Get started, though, and you'll find SpeedyPainter offers more features than you might expect. Wacom tablet support means you can vary stroke size and opacity with your pen pressure. A versatile colour picker can pop up at your cursor position for quick and easy access. There are rotate, flip and crop tools, even a perspective grid overlay to help you produce more realistic images.

Most of these tools have plenty of functionality, too. So once you've drawn a crop area, you can apply it, rotate it, or pan the image underneath it to select the right area. But this is rarely, if ever confusing, because the program always displays simple prompts top-left of the screen to explain your various options. And a Help screen with reminders of the various hotkeys is only ever a click away.

Once your masterpiece is complete, SpeedyPainter won't just save the image. It also captures each stroke as you work, and can export the results as an AVI file (480p, 720p, 1080p), a great way to see how the picture was produced. Don't take our word for it: browse the SpeedyPainter gallery and see for yourself.

Version 3.4.16 (see changelog for more info):

Improved cut and paste (now you can also rotate the pasted image).

Verdict:

It may be small, but SpeedyPainter has plenty to offer both the novice and the experienced artist

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.40

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 2.17.40

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
