WeatherDan
Monitor weather/ radar for any US ZIP code

WeatherDan is a simple desktop weather monitor which allows you to track current conditions for any US ZIP code.

A single click on the program's system tray icon displays a Weather.com-sourced summary for the current ZIP code (3345/8 Jupiter, FL by default). Details include temperature, "feels like", wind, humidity, pressure, dew point, visibility, UV index.

This popup doesn't disappear after a few seconds, or when you move your mouse away, and this seemed convenient to us: you can leave it there, and the summary remains on top of other windows.

But if you don't need it any more, no problem - one click on the summary and it disappears.

Right-click the WeatherDan system tray icon and you'll find options to set your own ZIP code, how often the program should retrieve weather conditions (never to every 60 minutes, 10 minutes by default), and whether you'd like 300 or 600 mile radar coverage.

A right-click "Show Radar" option displays the current weather map, and will also animate this once it's downloaded enough updates (it won't happen right away).

There are also shortcuts to open Weather.com at your defined ZIP code, or launch the WeatherDan home page.

v8.6.0
- new settings file handling and radar range capability

Verdict:

WeatherDan is one of the more basic weather monitors: it's US-only, supports just one location, and has no configuration options beyond the ZIP code. But the program is also lightweight, easy to use and entirely free, so if you don't need the bulk and complexity of the competition then it might be interesting.

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.
