Vectr
Free cross-platform vector editing

Vectr is a free vector editor which you can use almost anywhere (there's a web version as well as our downloadable clients).

A minimalist interface makes it easy to get started. Click a shape - anything from basic rectangles and ellipses to clipart-type clouds, houses, envelopes etc - and click the client area to add it, then click and drag to resize, and customise its colour, border, shadow, opacity, apply gradient fills, and more.

Drawing options are fairly standard, but SVG import does at least mean you can extend the project with items created elsewhere.

You're able to group multiple objects together to work on them at once, or place objects on different layers to build more complex designs.

Projects are stored online by default. That's convenient if you want to start a project on one device and continue it on another, and it could also be useful if you want to collaborate on images with others.

Export options are impressive. As well as saving your work as a PNG, JPG or SVG, the program offers a live link that anyone can use to view your design, or you can share it directly on Facebook or Twitter.

Vectr isn't difficult to use, but there's a lot of help available if you need it. Take a look for a preview of what's on offer.

Please note: the program requires registration before it can create your online workspace.

v.1.18:
- Layer support
- Embed images on your Facebook timeline

Verdict:

Vectr's core vector editor is relatively simple, but the program has plenty of other strengths: ease of use, SVG import, cross-platform, online project storage and easy sharing of the design with others.

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.
