Freehand Painter
Sketch and paint on your touch-screen PC with this free tool

Freehand Painter is a small, simple and free vector drawing and paint tool with touch screen support.

The program is easy to use. Getting started is just a matter of choosing a colour and brush size, then dragging your finger across the touch screen (or using the mouse, if your system isn't touch-enabled).

You've made a mistake? The Undo tool will reverse your last steps. You can alternatively use the eraser to remove pixels or an entire stroke. While the Lasso tool helps you to select a vector object and move it elsewhere.

When your masterpiece is complete, you're able to save it as an ISF file, or export the painting as a bitmap in GIF, BMP, JPG or PNG formats.

And while Freehand Painter isn't exactly complicated, a straightforward local Help file explains other details which you might find useful (like some handy keyboard shortcuts for selecting tools, varying the brush size, and more).

There's no great depth to any of this, but that's probably part of the program's appeal: it's simple enough for kids to use, yet still provides enough tools and options to keep them busy for quite some time (as long as they've some artistic talent, anyway).

Verdict:

This simple vector paint tool offers plenty of fun for beginners, especially on touch-sensitive screens, although if you're familiar with more advanced software then Freehand Painter will probably feel a little basic.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.5

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.
