GanttProject
Project management software doesn't have to be expensive - GanttProject provides plenty of functionality for free

GanttProject is a free and open source Java-based project management tool which runs on Windows, Linux and OS X.

The program has a reasonable feature set. Gantt charts help you define milestones and see how your tasks are organised (and can be used to produce a PERT chart, too). You're able to assign human resources to work on each task, record how much time they're working on it, their role, and so on. And a separate resources chart keeps you up-to-date with who's too busy and who really isn't.

Sharing information is vital, of course, so it's good to see that you can import and export projects in Microsoft Project and CSV formats. There's also the option to save individual charts as images, or generate HTML or PDF reports on what you're doing. And there's even WebDAV support to help you share projects directly with others.

If you're a project management novice, though, the best aspect of GanttProject will probably be its ease of use. You can create a new project in a click; clicking Tasks > New Task adds a task, ready to be given a name and date; double-click it and you can set its duration, priority, a web link, resources and more. You can get a very long way just by exploring menus and dialog boxes (and there's also a sample project to load which will help you further).

We had a few problems, too: the reporting tool didn't always deliver (we never found it why), sometimes the interface didn't behave as we expected, there were one or two issues with Microsoft Project file imports, and so on. There was nothing major, though, and on balance GanttProject is a capable tool which could be all you need for many project management tasks.

What's new in 2.8.10 (see entire changelog for more)?

- Calendar updates and bugfixes.

Verdict:

It doesn't quite have the feature list of the commercial competition, and we found a few minor problems, but GanttProject is still an impressive tool which could provide all the project management power you need

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
