sTabLauncher 2.2.3
A stylish dock for launching programs, web pages and more

STabLauncher is a lightweight and attractive dock which makes it easier to launch your favourite apps, web pages, documents and more.

The program is extremely unobtrusive, so on first launch you may wonder exactly where it is. Take a look at the top of your screen, though, and you'll see two tabs: "Internet" and "App". Hover your mouse over either of these and you'll see each tab contains a couple of sample icons (IE, Explorer, Notepad and Windows Calc), and clicking any of these will launch the relevant program.

Basic sTabLauncher configuration is just as easy. You can add items to either tab just by dragging and dropping them from Explorer, for instance. Right-clicking a tab reveals options to add new items, or separators. And you can drag icons around to organise them in any way you like.

Of course you'll probably want more than the original "Internet" and "App" tabs, but the right-click > Options > Tabs dialog allows you to add just as many as you might need.

And while all of this looks great to us (nice gradient colour scheme, Mac-style bouncing icons), the program is highly configurable, so if you don't like something then there's a good chance it can be changed.

Yet for all of this, sTabLauncher remains extremely undemanding, with the core process using less than 3MB RAM on our test PC.

We did find some issues. The Options dialog allows you to add a Music folder, for instance, with what looks like a built-in music player... But, unfortunately, none of its options worked for us.

And troubleshooting this kind of problem, or trying to understand the program's more advanced features, isn't helped by the total lack of any documentation.

Still, sTabLauncher worked just fine with our own tab configurations - even on Windows 8 - so if you're looking for a new launcher then it might be worth a try.


Lightweight and very configurable, sTabLauncher is a simple and stylish way to organise your applications

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+)
