FontCreator
View and edit existing fonts or design new fonts from scratch with this powerful tool

FontCreator is a tool which can display existing fonts, let you modify individual characters to suit your needs, and design complete new fonts from scratch.

The program is equally at home with both TrueType and OpenType fonts (and can convert OpenType fonts to TrueType). And it supports all the popular encodings and code pages (ANSI, ASCII, Unicode, Symbol, Big5, PRC, Wansung, etc) so you can be sure that your creation will work wherever you need to use it.

Support for importing both vector files (EPS, AI, PDF etc) and bitmap images (BMP, GIF, PNG) helps get your design project off the ground quickly.

But there are plenty of other goodies which should appeal to more advanced users. So the program can fix character mappings, for instance, or edit and regenerate font names. It's able to generate, modify, import, export, and clean up kerning pairs. And with the ability to add up to 65,535 glyphs per font there are no real obstacles placed in the way of your creativity: you can do more or less anything you like.

Please note, FontCreator comes in Home ($79), Standard ($149) and Professional ($199) Editions. They're generally similar, but the Home Edition can't be used for commercial purposes, and is missing a few of the more advanced features (Automatic kerning wizard, "Insert characters" feature, font validation wizard, real-time glyph validation). See the full comparison here.

Version 11.0.0.2366 brings (see full changelog):

Bug fix: failed to save Unicode code-points beyond the first plane
Bug fix: failed to edit custom naming fields
Update: improvements to help and manual

Verdict:

FontCreator has the advanced features experts need, yet is also easy enough to be used at a basic level by just about anyone.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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 2.17.42

• 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.
