TotalEdit Professional 5.7.0
A powerful Notepad replacement

TotalEdit Professional is a powerful Notepad replacement with a stack of professional features.

The program can connect to, browse and edit files on FTP, FTPS and SSH servers, for example. You get support for connecting to any Microsoft OLEDB and ODBC supported database, browsing their contents, and running multiple queries at the same time. There's even an Excel-styled window to view your results.

Software developers will appreciate tools like syntax highlighting, code folding, line numbering/ sorting, bolding of matching and non-matching braces, the configurable "HTML, XHTML and XML tidy" formatting, and more.

Support for opening Unicode and UTF-8 files, as well as the ability to switch between your desired line endings and document encodings, means you should be able to open most files.

The editor isn't the most feature-packed we've seen, but it's solid enough. You're able to toggle case, trim leading or trailing spaces, drag and drop selected text from one area to another, search for text using regular expressions, or across multiple files. Of course there's a spell checker, too.

And there are plenty of surprising bonus features which almost justify installing the program all on their own. The File Comparison tool can visually highlight the differences between two documents; different files, say, or the current file and its last saved version. And the Hex Editor means you're able to view and tweak binary files, too.

Please note, although now entirely free, the program was once a commercial product, and still installs as a trial version. To activate it fully, enter 2D5B073C-93D0-6D40-8970-B041-C2C in the "Licence" box, and click "Register".


TotalEdit Professional may not be the best choice for serious users. It's apparently not been updated since 2012, so bugs you might find probably won't be fixed any time soon. It is a powerful and capable editor, though, and if you're willing to live with any deficiencies then the program is certainly worth a closer look.

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.
