Toolwiz Pretty Photo 2.7
Enhance your photos with this simple but featured-packed editor

Toolwiz Pretty Photo is an unusual photo editor which drops many of the usual complexities, yet still includes many different ways to improve the look of your images.

The core editing features are relatively basic. You can crop and resize an image, for instance, and adjust brightness, contrast, levels, hue/ saturation and colour balance in various ways, but that's about it. You don't get layer support, paint tools, selection options or anything more advanced.

By way of compensation, though, the program does provide a lengthy list of tools to help improve your photos.

Click Image Filter > Art Filters, for instance, and you'll find more than 50 filters which can instantly apply a new look to your image: Canvas, Cartoon, Color Emboss, Sketch, Polaroid, Pencil, and the list goes on.

You can dress up your portrait shots with all kinds of fun extras, quickly adding eyebrows, eyelashes, glasses, wigs, hats and more. And there's a surprising number of options, too. If you decide your dog would look better with some glasses, for instance, you'll find the program gives you more than 100 frames to choose from.

And you're able to add lots of different objects to an images, too: text, shapes, speech bubbles, arrows, and assorted other symbols and clipart-type items.

There are also some problems here. The interface is poorly thought out, for instance, and less than intuitive in many areas. And there's no local Help at all.

And one major issue is that you can't use the program to edit large images (we're not sure of the precise limit, but it seems to be anything above 2,048 pixels on one axis). Open these and the program demands that you resize them.

Still, if you just want to enhance your image for displaying and sharing, rather than printing, Pretty Photo does have a lot to offer. Especially, perhaps, for children, who will have hours of fun playing around with the various retouching options.


Toolwiz Pretty Photo comes packed with interesting tools and options, but interface issues are annoying, and the inability to edit larger photos is a particular problem

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.
