Easily find Unicode symbols

SymbSearch is an open-source tool for easily finding and reusing Unicode symbols.

Press Ctrl+Alt+W when you need to enter a symbol somewhere and your options are displayed in a simple list. Each character is displayed in a larger font size than you'll get with the Character Map, and also includes the symbol name for easier recognition.

The list may be filtered by Category. Options include Greek, Arrows, Mathematics, Box Drawing, various Latin selections, and more.

Being able to see all the math symbols together (for instance) helps experts find what they need, and can be an education for everyone else. You might see symbols you had missed before, like "Cube Root", or find out what particular symbols mean ("Divides", "Does not Divide").

A Search box enables finding symbols by name. Typing Gamma displays your three available options, maybe handy if you've forgotten what they look like, or you can type "arrow" to see just the various arrows.

Whatever you're viewing, selection is easy. Choose a category or run a search, then use the down arrow repeatedly to find and select a symbol, hit Enter to copy it to the clipboard. SymbSearch minimises immediately to the system tray and you can paste the symbol into another app.

SymbSearch is convenient and easy to use, and if you regularly need Unicode symbols it might be worth a try.

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.
