My Family Tree
A free and feature-packed genealogy tool

My Family Tree is an excellent tool for recording just about every possible detail on your family history.

The program imports existing trees from GEDCOM files, or you can easily start from scratch, adding individuals and a host of details on them: relationships, photos and stories, video, audio, general attachments, even genetics.

There's plenty of depth to these options, too. An extensive "Details" section allows you to add the name, birth and death dates, nationality, religion, social security number, title, education, description, confirmation date, first communion and more.

Relationships are reasonably flexible: children can be "natural", "adopted" or foster", a spouse can be "current" or "former", an "Unrelated" option allows you to connect friends, witnesses or others you might need to reference later.

Even a basic tool like adding an image manages to impress, with support for scanners, one or two basic editing options ("Rotate", "Sepia"), printing, slideshows and more.

The core family tree view is very configurable. You might choose to show all generations, just immediate family, maybe those born after a particular date; there are options to hide descendants, ancestors, siblings and more; you can show or hide dates, photos, genders and so on; there are even built-in themes to change the background and colour scheme.

A host of other views are just a click away. There's an ancestors tree; an interactive timeline; lists of sources, photos, stories and more, and handy pages of statistics and family details. (If you'd like a count of the surnames in your family tree, say, or a graph showing the distribution of family ages at death then you'll find them here.)

A set of useful reports provides further ways to analyse your tree, most notably highlighting possible errors: people who've lived "too long", have no parents, have duplicate named children, have events after death, and so on.

And the program is rounded off with plenty of small but welcome extras, such as its ability to password-protect your tree and ensure its details remain private.

Version brings (Changelog):
•A new relationships view allows you to edit the members of family groups and make alterations to linked facts and people all in one place.
•Shared events such as marriages and divorces can now be added and updated from the facts view.

•The user interface has been refined to support higher resolution icons on ultra high definition 4K displays.

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.
