Ashampoo Home Designer 2.0
Plan out the look of your next home decoration or renovation project

Ashampoo Home Designer is a 3D home planning tool which makes it easy to see how your next home project will look, without having to pay for a professional designer.

You start by providing the dimensions of your room, then add walls, windows, doors, maybe carpets to create the initial shell. Then you'll add further objects - the tables, chairs, bath, TV cooker, whatever's appropriate - and reorganise, rearrange and relocate these until you find the layout you need.

And then you can dress it further for enhanced realism. Would your room look better with parquet flooring or granite tiles, for instance? Choose the appropriate material and you'll see, right away. You're even able to import your own photos to use as backgrounds, maybe a view of your garden as it will appear through the window, to give you the best possible idea of how your romm will appear in real life.

It's hard to tell what works from a standard 2D view, of course, so Ashampoo Home Designer also allows you to look at your new room from any angle and position: outside the room, inside, above or below, from the door, the window, with whatever perspective and zoom factor you like.

Whatever your viewpoint, professional lighting and ray-tracing algorithms mean the program will quickly deliver an attractive and very realistic view of your plan. And you can then share this with others in a variety of ways, from multiple bitmaps showing the room from every angle, to lists of the fixtures, fittings and materials you've used, perfect if you now want to ask a professional builder or other tradesman to carry out this work for you.

Verdict:

The program is a little short on 3D objects - there are only a few kitchen appliances, for instance - but if you can make do with the selection on offer then Ashampoo Home Designer will prove a straightforward and easy-to-use CAD and home planning tool

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
