Programmer's Notepad 2.3.4
A surprisingly powerful plain text editor with a host of interesting options

Programmer's Notepad is a Notepad replacement which, while it's targeted at developers, has a lot to offer all experienced Windows users.

You get support for UTF8, 16 and various file encodings, for instance, as well as Windows, Unix and Mac-style line endings, which means the program should be able to open most text files.

The tabbed interface means you're able to open multiple files at the same time, too. These can accessed via their tabs or arranged in a window. And each individual files can then be displayed in a split view (the window contains multiple panes, each of which can be scrolled independently).

And there's plenty more: powerful search and replace, bookmarking, useful tools to compress white space or remove blank lines, lots of customisation options, and the list goes on.

Of course this isn't called the Programmer's Notepad for nothing, though, and you also get syntax highlighting for many languages, code folding, text clips for easy insertion of common text blocks, Python-based scripting and more.

You won't find quite the same number of text manipulation options as some of the competition, though. You can switch your selected text to upper or lower case, for instance, but you can't reverse the current case or do anything more complex. Still, there's more than enough text editing power here for most people's needs, and if you outgrew Notepad sometime around Windows 95 then Programmer's Notepad could be a very useful replacement.

Verdict:

An excellent Notepad replacement with a polished interface and plenty of useful features (whether you're a programmer, or not)

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
