Task Coach Portable
Whatever you need to do, Task Coach makes it easy to keep track of your progress

Modern life means that most of us have to remember a large number of appointments and deadlines every day of the week, and in many instances a traditional diary or calendar will not suffice. One option is to turn to a personal information manager (PIM), but these have a tendency to be large, complicated beasts which are overpowered for what they are needed for. Many PIMs are also somewhat limited in the way in which they handle the creation of tasks, and this is where Task Coach may be able to help.

In essence, the program is a simple To Do list manager, but it has been designed with one important idea in mind - one which is all too often overlooked. The program is capable of handling composite tasks - an entry on a To Do list which is made up of several individual components - which means that it can be used to manage simple tasks and well as more complicated projects.

Tasks that are created can be assigned a start and end date as well as a priority level and a search facility is on hand to make it easy to track down information that may have been attached to a particular item. Saved in XML format, Task Coach files can be imported into a range of other programs, but on its own it does an excellent job of handling both small and large lists of tasks that need to be completed.

Note that this is the portable version of Task Coach that can be taken on the road.

Verdict:

Highly effective task manager which is not weighed down by unnecessary features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
