Toasts&Tiles for Gmail
Easily manage your Gmail accounts in Windows 8 with Toasts&Tiles

If you’re running Windows 8 or Windows RT and make use of Gmail, there’s no need to head to your browser to check your email. Toasts&Tiles for Gmail is a standalone email client for Gmail that is capable of handling up to three different accounts (including Google App accounts). In some respect, this app is little more than a wrapper for a browser, but it does have a few extras to offer.

First of all, as the name would suggest, there is support for toast notifications. Give the app permission to run in the background and you will be alerted whenever new messages are received. Live tiles are also supported so you can get a quick overview of the state of your inbox from the Start screen.

As this is a modern app is can be used in full screen mode, or snapped to the edge of the desktop in a small, always-visible bar. This provides another handy way to keep on top of your inbox and you can take advantage of all of the usual features of Gmail.

In terms of extra options, there are not very many to explore. The font size of emails can be adjusted as required, and there is the ability to pin individual messages to the Start screen for easy access. But besides this what you have is a beautifully simple email client designed with Gmail users in mind.

It could be argued that the restriction of only working with Gmail is too limiting, but as it is possible to configure your Gmail account to pull in emails from other providers, this is something that can be easily worked around. 

Verdict:

An incredibly simple app, but one that makes it easier to keep on top of your Gmail inbox.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.19

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.
