DeskTask for Outlook
Use DeskTask to view Outlook tasks and calendar to your desktop

DeskTask is a tool which displays your Outlook calendar and task list on your desktop. And so there's no need to launch Outlook to check your upcoming appointments any more - a glance at your desktop will tell you everything you need.

The floating transparent window can be placed anywhere on the desktop and there are various options available to customise its appearance and functionality (how frequently the display will be updated, the fonts used, transparency and so on).

DeskTask can display the contents of your Outlook Calendar and Tasks, and you get full control over these, too. So you might decide to monitor just the calendar, for example, and only if contains upcoming items. You get to choose the number of days the program will monitor (anything from 0 to 90). There's even an option to launch Outlook when you click on a particular item.

Please note, when we first launched the program it hung while collecting data, then displayed various error messages. Running it as an Administrator didn't help. But after restarting the system everything worked just fine, so we'd recommend you do the same, reboot after installation to reduce the chance of any problems.

Version 1.61 (changelog):

Added an option to show countdown (in days) to the header date
Reorganized some options
Minor bug fixes

Verdict:

DeskTask makes it very easy to keep track of your tasks and appointments. A real time-saver

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.
