HTC Home Apis 3.0
Monitor the time and the weather on your Windows desktop

HTC Home is a free, open-source Windows applet that displays a clock and weather forecast on your desktop.

Despite the name, the program has nothing to do with HTC, the company; the author simply wanted to reproduce the time and weather applet on HTC Communicators.

He's done a good job, though, and the display looks fabulous. It's large, packed with information (day, date, current temperature for your location, weather predictions for the next four days), and you even get animations appropriate to the current conditions. So on a grey day, for instance, you might have animated clouds passing in front of the clock display.

Distracting? Maybe, but fortunately you can disable the animations, if you prefer. And the program's settings box allows you to customise just about every other aspect of its operations: the weather location you want to monitor, the applet's position and size, your preferred time format (12 or 24 hour), the applet fonts and more.

Of course all this power comes at a price, and HTC Home uses more RAM and CPU time than the simpler competition. If you need a clock and weather applet that looks great, though, and you can spare the system resources, then this could still be an excellent choice.

Verdict:

Resource use is a little high, but that's hardly surprising for one of the best-looking weather applets around

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

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 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• 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+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
