Sketch
Sketch is a powerful and acessible vector based drawing tool

Vector drawing tools can be used in everything from design to logo creation, and Sketch is one such tool for OS X. All of the standard tools you would expect to find are included in the application including pens, brushes and pre-defined shapes.

Boolean operations preserve all of the vectors you create and you have the option of using dynamic Boolean operations on groups of vectors. For greater control over page layout, rulers, grids and guides are available and automatic measurements appears to help you to line things up as you see fit.

With an infinite canvas, there is no limit to the size of your creations, but Sketch is even more flexible than this. Your projects can be made up of multiple pages, and elements can be easily shared between pages - this is ideal if you are using the application to create a web site as it means that repeating page elements such as buttons can be edited in a single location and these changes will be reflected throughout the project.

Sketch has a flexible slicing system which can be used to great effect in your projects. Slices ca overlap each other can be easily exported. To speed up the process of creating a project, libraries can be used to store elements that you will want to use again and again. With an excellent range of effects and an ease of use that unusual for such an application, Sketch is a powerful and versatile tool.

Verdict:

An impressive drawing application that is powerful enough for those used to vector based work, yet accessible enough for beginners to jump right into.

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
