A powerful but lightweight programmer's editor

EverEdit is a powerful Notepad replacement with a lengthy list of interesting and unusual features.

The program is a compact download, and as it's portable, just unzip the contents somewhere and you're ready to open your first file. Which can be in just about any encoding, as EverEdit has full Unicode support. And, surprisingly, you can even open binary files, and view them in the program's simple hex editor.

Mostly EverEdit is about plain text editing, though, taking a core Notepad-type functionality and just layering on the extras. Like a very flexible tabbed interface; template support for faster document creation; regular expression support when searching; dragging and dropping to move text around; customisable toolbars, syntax highlighting, code folding, spell checking, and the list goes on.

There are some surprisingly powerful features, too, considering the editor's compact size. Like an HTML Mode, with toolbar buttons to help you more quickly create tables, forms, lists and so on, as well as an internal browser to view the file you're working on. Then there's the embedded VBS/JScript script engine, macros, plugins and more.

We did also have a few problems with the program. It's missing a few of the options you might find in some of the competition (there's no multiple clipboards, for instance). The functionality you do get isn't always organised intuitively, either, so we'd occasionally spend quite some time figuring out how to do something.

    - NEW: Added mouse middle behavior. You can bind an command to the middle button. (Setting->Edit)
    - IMPROVED: When double click items in [Directory View], EverEdit will focus on opened file.
    - IMPROVED: Removed and changed some shortcuts of [Directory View]
    - IMPROVED: Improved bracket match limit to 4000 lines (Up: 2000 lines, Down: 2000 lines)
    - IMPROVED: If you press delete or backspace key, EverEdit will delete selection first if there does exist some selections.
    - IMPROVED: Some wrong translations of shortcuts
    - IMPROVED: The calltip window might be covered by complete window


EverEdit is a very capable Notepad replacement, but whether it's worth the $35 price tag - even as a lifetime licence - isn't quite so clear.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
