Classic audio editor Audacity revamped

DarkAudacity is a mildly redesigned edition of Audacity, the classic Windows audio editor and recorder.

The program is a branch of Audacity rather than a fork, so shares the same code base. It has no big technical differences to the original project - no extra effects, no expanded file format support - and is instead more about revamping the interface to give it a more modern look and improve ease of use.

For example, as the name suggests, the colour scheme is a little darker and there are new Material Design icons.

The top level menus have been shortened and redesigned, with lesser functions relocated to submenus.

Panels and the meter have had surplus numbers removed to cut down on visual clutter, so you're no longer forever looking at "Stereo, 44100Hz 32-bit float".

There are small practical changes. For instance, previously many functions were disabled when the Pause was down, and you had to switch out of that mode to use them. Now you can just select any of these "disallowed" features and DarkAudacity automatically pops up the Pause button and stops recording or playback.


DarkAudacity is a fairly minor variation on the Audacity project, but it looks better and does have some practical interface improvements. Worth a look if you're used Audacity before but gave up, or you just need a capable audio editor.

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.
