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.

Verdict:

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 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
