ShareX
A free, feature-packed screen capture tool

ShareX is an open source screen capture tool with a very extensive feature list.

The program doesn't just grab individual windows and a full screen, for example. You can also capture rectangles, ellipses, triangles, diamonds, polygons or freehand shapes. There's support for multi-monitor systems, and even a screen capture tool to save desktop activity as an AVI or animated GIF.

Any image you might grab can be processed in many ways. You can crop, resize or rotate it; annotate it with lines, arrows, shapes, textboxes and more; obscure confidential details (passwords, say) with the obfuscator; customise it with a watermark, or apply special effects, including borders, shadows, torn edges and more.

Once you're happy, ShareX can directly upload your work to more than 30 online services, including Twitter, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, Dropbox, OneDrive, RapidShare and GoogleDrive. You get a module to create custom uploaders for sites which aren't in the list. And there are also more general options, like the ability to send a grab via email, or copy it to a shared folder.

Even now, the program hasn't finished. Once the capture has been uploaded, you can have ShareX do something with the link: use your preferred URL shortening service, post it on Twitter, send it in an email, maybe just paste it to the clipboard.

Best of all, this is extremely configurable. You might set your preferred file format, set up the effects you'd like to apply, define a precise format for the saved file name, launch a custom program to work on it, select multiple upload destinations (you're not restricted to just one) and more, then launch the entire process with a custom hotkey.

Version 10.0.0 (changelog):

- Added FFmpeg GIF encoding support
- Added GIF encoder setting in "Screen recorder" tab and it defaults to FFmpeg
- Added FFmpeg x265 encoding support (browsers do not support it yet)
- Added webpage capture
- Added MaxFile file uploader
- Added DropFile file uploader
- Added VideoBin file uploader (by @corey-)
- Added Up1 file uploader (by @Upload)
- Recent list in tray menu will be saved between sessions
- Double clicking Regex list entry in "Custom uploaders" tab will try to automatically add correct syntax to URL section
- Custom uploader test result will also show thumbnail and deletion URLs
- Added optional force result URL HTTPS setting in Task settings -> Advanced
- Allow empty text in Twitter image upload
Hotkey "Task" dropdown menu is now categorized so it does not fill the screen
- FFmpeg video/audio device installation is now optional and install button for it is available in "Screen recording options" window
- Added active window screen recording (including GIF) hotkeys
- Both last region and active window screen recording hotkeys won't steal focus now
- Added hotkeys for all remaining Tools available in main window
 -Added countdown timer for screen recording when auto start timer is configured

Verdict:

ShareX has a lot of features and functionality, and initially it can seem intimidating. The program is extremely configurable, though, and it's ability to automate just about everything will save you an enormous amount of time.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
