DrawPad Graphics Editor
A useful vector draw/ paint tool

DrawPad Graphics Editor is a small and straightforward vector graphics editor.

The program includes Pencil and Paint tools (with multiple brushes), line and text options, and has the ability to draw simple shapes.

As these are all vector objects, they can be selected later and modified in various ways. At a minimum, you're able to click an object, move, resize and rotate it. But you can also adjust its border width, add a customisable drop shadow, a bevel/ emboss effect, maybe create a gradient fill.

A zoom slider (25% - 400%) helps you place your objects with reasonable precision.

Simple layer support can help you manage more complex designs.

A tabbed interface means you're able to have multiple projects open at the same time.

And your finished designs can be exported as JPG, PNG, BMP, SVG, PDF, or DrawPad's own internal DRP format.


At first glance DrawPad Graphics Editor looks a little basic. Its brush and object styles, drop shadow and fill options mean you can get quite creative, though. The layer support is welcome, SVG export was a surprise, and for a free tool requiring barely 2MB drive space it performs very well.

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.
