Amazon Kindle for PC
Read Kindle ebooks on your computer with Kindle for PC

eBooks have been heralded as the next big thing in publishing and after the success of the Sony Reader in its various forms, excitement was ripe for the Kindle. Now using Kindle for PC, it is possible to read Kindle ebooks on your computer regardless of whether or not your own a Kindle device.

The application synchronises with your online Kindle account so you can access your ebooks if your don’t have your Kindle with you. The program can also be used as an easy way to read through sample chapters before deciding whether or not to buy a particular book.

When read books in the application, it is possible to create bookmarks and notes as well as highlight sections of interest, and these will be synchronised with your Kindle if you have one. On screen reading is easy on the eye thanks to the ability to not only change text size, but also its colour and to switch to full screen mode.

A simple icon based system is used to provide an overview of book in your library and books themselves, or more details about them are never more than a couple of clicks away. With easy access to Amazon’s online Kindle shop and automatic synchronisation with your Kindle, this is a program which every Kindle user should install, but it is also a great introduction to ebooks for non-Kindle owners.
 

Verdict:

An excellent supplement to your Kindle, and a great way to try out the service if you are thinking about purchasing and ereader.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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.

Version 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
