Gadwin PrintScreen 5.4
A versatile and highly configurable screen capture tool

Gadwin PrintScreen is a free tool which makes it easy to take and save images of your screen.

By default the program replaces the usual PrtSc key action, but you can switch this to some other key, if you prefer.

Pressing the hotkey can then capture the current window, client window, full screen or a freehand rectangular area.

You can have the program copy that area to the clipboard, print it, send it via email, or save it to a file. The latter supports various formats (BMP, PNG, JPG, GIF, TIFF), and you can have the image resized, converted to greyscale, or have a shadow added, as well as automatically naming it.

And there are one or two useful configuration options, too. So for instance you can introduce a delay between pressing the hotkey and the capture taking place, handy if you need to set up the image in some way. And you can choose to hide the mouse cursor, so it won't be visible in the captured image.

Put it all together and this is a likeable, easy-to-use tool. If you need more, though, Gadwin Systems also produce a Professional version which adds a very powerful image editor, perfect when you want to annotate your images with captions, callouts and more. Prices start at $24.95 and you can find out more at the Gadwin site.


It could benefit from more capture types - a scrolling window, say - but otherwise Gadwin PrintScreen proves a capable, easy-to-use and very configurable screen capture tool.

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+)
