Childsplay is a collection of education and entertaining games for younger children.

 Childsplay is a suite of programs for younger children. These games are designed to entertain and educate at the same time, while also giving young children familiarity with computers. Childsplay is now part of a larger project, called Schoolsplay, but this is the most mature part of the project.

The games cover memory exercises, utilising numbers, letters, sounds and images, various puzzles that giuve different types of mental excercise and a number of classic arcade type games suitable for children such as Pacman. By comparison with GCompris, the range of games seems a lot more limited, but these are aimed at a narrower age range, many of the GCompris games would be unsitable for Childplay's intended audience. However, both programs are free, in every sense of the word, so there's no reason why you shouldn't install both if you have a younger child.

Now that the project has been enlarged into Schoolsplay, we can hope that future releases will contain a larger range of games.

Verdict:

 A slightly limited choice of games, but a good addition if you have young children.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.7

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 2.16.7?

• If you send a single emoji, it's displayed bigger

• When tapping Edit at the top of the Chats tab, you can now to select multiple chats to quickly archive, delete, or mark as read.
