WinSnap 4.5.5
You can tweak your captured image easily using WinSnap.

Windows has always featured some kind of basic screen grabbing tool, from the incredibly primitive Print Screen key that copies the entire screen to the clipboard to the Snipping Tool of Vista and Windows 7, which enables you to grab selected parts of the screen or active windows, with or without the mouse cursor.

For most people this may be enough, but if you’re after a professional solution that supports a wider range of features and options, then WinSnap has to be a serious contender. It’s small and unobtrusive, but gives you complete control over the screen or portion of the screen you’re grabbing, including options for window, region, application (enabling you to capture two or three open windows from the same application without grabbing the background) and object, which gives you complete control over which screen elements to include with a handy Ctrl-click selection.

Its major selling point is its support for the Aero background, plus there are some handy post-production effects: add shadows, reflections and highlights, rotate your image,watermark your screen captures, insert your own background and create thumbnails.

WinSnap is also the perfect example of a good shareware tool: a low price (US$24.95) that entitles you to a lifetime of updates, which come quickly in response to many user requests - the latest version (4.5) is a good example of this, introducing a user-defined delay on screen captures along with countdown clock. You can also install it on as many computers as you own.

Changelog for WinSnap v4.5.5:

- New translations: German, Korean, Russian
- Fixed an issue with closing WinSnap when the hotkey error dialog is active
- Fixed several minor issues with translated dialogs and controls

Verdict:

It’s almost perfect, but not quite: other tools have more features, but its small footprint, excellent value and well-designed interface add up to make it a must buy for anyone who needs a reliable screen capture tool for personal or professional purchases.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
