ColourGrab
An easy-to-use colour picker

ColourGrab is an easy-to-use colour picker which enables speedy capture of any colour on your screen, and reuse of its hex or RGB value elsewhere.

The program adds an icon to your system tray and can be activated with a click, or you can start grabbing immediately by pressing Alt+C (customisable).

ColourGrab displays a small square beneath your mouse cursor showing the currently selected shade. Move the mouse around the screen, the colour changes accordingly, and left-clicking saves it to ColourGrab's list.

Repeat this process to store a second colour, a third, up to seven in total. Each of these is displayed in ColourGrab's panel in the form of a box showing the shade, its hex and RGB values.

Click any hex or RGB value and ColourGrab copies it to the clipboard, ready for use anywhere else.

A Settings dialog enables changing many aspects of the program, including the position of its panel, the look of its interface and tray icon, the hotkey and more.

Verdict:

An appealing colour picker, lightweight (under 12MB RAM required) and easy-to-use.

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.
