Microsoft WebMatrix 1.11
A powerful, all-in-one web development suite

Microsoft WebMatrix is a free web development suite that aims to simplify the process of building professional, dynamic websites.

Installing WebMatrix will get you IIS Developer Express, an easy-to-use version of the IIS 7.5 web server that ships with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. SQL Server Compact handles all your database needs, and you're able to code your site in ASP.NET.

You can add an array of Microsoft development tools to this list, just by checking a few boxes in the installer: PowerShell 2.0, Visual Web Developer 2010 Express, Windows Azure tools for Visual Studio 2010, the Silverlight toolkit, and more.

And it's just as easy to add popular third-party web apps: DotNetNuke, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, phpBB and more. Or one of these tools, at least: check more boxes and an error message complains that "only one application is allowed per installation". Still, it's better than nothing.

Please note, the 84KB download is for Microsoft's Web Platform Installer only. Launch this, choose the components you want to install, and the installer will then let you know the total download size.

Verdict:

WebMatrix provides easy access to plenty of high quality, industry-standard tools. If you're thinking of dipping your toes into the professional web development waters then this could a great place to start

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
