Vector Clock Designer
Drag and drop elements to quickly start building your own clock.

The clock that sits in the Windows Taskbar is functional, but not exactly inspiring. And the desktop gadgets that ship with Vista and Windows 7 aren’t much better, either. While desktop clocks are commonplace, finding the right one to match your desktop or suit your personal demands can be tricky.

Vector Clock Designer figures the best way for you to get the perfect desktop clock is to design your own. It’s an incredibly powerful tool that developers and designers could spend hours tweaking and fiddling with, but thankfully for the rest of us you can eschew all those precise controls in favour of quickly dragging and dropping the elements you want, then quickly colouring them before letting the program take your beautiful design and transform it into a fully working desktop app.

Start with a blank canvas, switch to the Library tab and pick backgrounds, hands, glass effect and finally controls from a large array of templates. Once done, explore the other tabs to change colour or make more extensive changes.

If you’re short on inspiration, you’ll find a number of pre-built clocks included which you can then fine-tune to your own needs, or visit the program's website to download dozens more.

You can preview your clock before generating the final code, and once complete, save your clock before letting the program transform it into a floating desktop clock, ready to tell you the time whenever you need it.
 

Verdict:

A clever design tool, as simple or as complex as you need it to be. If you can’t find a desktop clock to suit, create your own instead.

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
