Notepad2 Portable 4.2.25
A feature-packed, developer-oriented Notepad replacement

Notepad is perhaps the most basic of all Windows applets, with little changed since it first appeared in Windows 1.0, back in 1985. It doesn't seem that Microsoft are too interested in adding more features, then, so if you'd prefer a more powerful text editor then you'll probably have to locate and install one yourself. And we have the perfect candidate in mind.

Notepad2 loads quickly, looks a lot like Notepad, and is primarily designed to work with plain text files - but it manages to cram in many extra features. So there's direct support for many different encodings (ANSI, Unicode, UTF-8) and line endings (Windows, Mac, Unix), helping ensure that your recipients can read whatever you create. Line numbers and automatic text indents are particularly useful. And the Find and Replace dialogs are greatly extended, with options to match case, match whole words, match just the beginning of a word, use regular expressions, and more.

Automatic syntax highlighting makes it easier to read HTML, JavaScript, CSS and XML documents. There are syntax schemes for many programming languages, too, and if your favourite isn't included then you can add support yourself.

A range of other developer-oriented features will help to clean up source code: select a block of text and you can indent or unindent it, strip trailing blanks, compress white space, remove blank lines and so on.

And perhaps best of all are the productivity-boosting features that just make your life easier. So, for example, you're able to open multiple document windows, view recently opened documents, or save commonly-used files in a Favourites window for speedy access later.

Verdict:

A tiny text editor that's full of high-end features. There's no built-in documentation, though, so beginners may struggle to find their way around for a while

Notepad2 Portable 4.2.25

Posted by: Bob Miller, 09 May 2014 14:00

This is supposed to be a "Portable" version but it wanted to install itself as a "Setup" version. Why would a portable program install itself in Windows when it should be a portable and run without installing it? I went ahead to complete the install just to see. It did not finish the install because of many installation errors. I'm running Win7 Home 64-Bit.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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 2.19.61 

• You can now see stickers in full size when you long press a notification.
