Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection
Take your creativity to the next level with Adobe's comprehensive suite

It's no secret that Adobe make some of the best design tools in the world. It's also no secret that they can be very expensive, but if you're planning on buying most of the packages anyway then it may be worth opting for the CS6 Master Collection: you could save up to 60% compared to the cost of buying the individual packages.

What's included? The suite bundles Photoshop CS6 Extended, Illustrator CS6, InDesign CS6, Acrobat X Pro, Flash Professional CS6, Flash Builder 4.6 Premium Edition, Dreamweaver CS6, Fireworks CS6, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, After Effects CS6, Adobe Audition CS6, SpeedGrade CS6, Prelude CS6, Encore CS6, Bridge CS6 and Media Encoder CS6.

And what's new? InDesign, Dreamweaver and other tools have a new focus on making sure your designs look just as good on any device: smartphone, tablet, PC and more. Photoshop has powerful content-aware technologies, new effects, even video editing support. But for really professional video editing just launch Adobe Premiere Pro, though: there's now amazing multicam editing, dynamic trimming tools and more powerful video stabilisation.

And although the list of entirely new features can be a little on the short side, for some apps at least, there's still a lengthy list of enhancements and improvements. Many interfaces have been optimised to improve usability and workflow, for instance (Illustrator has seen more than 40 tweaks all on its own). Enhanced memory management means Fireworks can support files up to 4x larger on 64-bit Windows systems. And just about every application here sees a significant performance boost through the Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine and Performance Systems, native 64-bit support and a host of code optimisations.

If there's a problem here, it's that bundling all these applications into a single suite makes for an enormous download, well over 6GB in size. The file you'll download here is Adobe's Download Manager, though, and that can pause and restart the download to suit your needs. Or, if you only want to check out a few of the main applications, then you can always download those separately: most have 30-day trial editions available.


The Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection is a hugely comprehensive set of some of the best design tools around. And while it's not cheap, if you're planning to buy most of them anyway then it could help to save you some cash.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
