AsciidocFX
Build PDF, ePub, MOBI, HTML ebooks

AsciidocFX is a Java-based editor for building PDF, ePub, MOBI and HTML books, documents and slides.

Documents are written in AsciiDoc markup, where formatting and document elements are entered in plain text (*bold*, _italic_ and so on).

You don't have to understand AsciiDoc to get started. There are toolbar buttons to make text bold or underlined, add bulleted lists, images, quotes and more, keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+B and Ctrl+I work just as they always did, and you can import images by dragging and dropping (in theory, anyway- this doesn't always work).

As you're working on your plain text markup, a separate Preview pane updates in real time to display the finished results.

This isn't too unusual, but AsciidocFX gets more interesting with its addons. There's support for inserting multiple chart types (pie, bar, line, area, scatter, bubble, stacked), mathematical equations via Tex or MathML, UML diagrams via PlantUML, an "ascii art to bmp converter" for simple diagrams, even a quick and easy way to list the subfolders and files in a folder tree (just drag and drop the root folder onto AsciidocFX).

Export options are another highlight, with AsciidocFX able to save your finished document as HTML, PDF, ePub and MOBI ebooks, and more.

Verdict:

Markup editors don't appeal to everyone, but AsciifoxFX's unusual extensions and strong selection of export formats could make it interesting to academic and technical users.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
