SnipDock 1.0.0
Capture part of the screen and keep it in view

SnipDock is a simple screen capture tool with a twist. Once you've grabbed a part of the screen, this is displayed in a separate pane, which means you can easily refer to it later.

Launch SnipDock and it displays in a pane at the left of your screen. (You can position it to the right, or leave it floating freely with a click.)

When you spot some information you'd like to record, click the "Snip Screen", then click and drag the left mouse button around your chosen image or text. Release the left mouse button and your capture is displayed in the dock.

Now you're able to return to your original application and continue work, but the capture remains in view, should you need it.

You can take another capture later, in which case it replaces the first. But SnipDock also saves your grabs to the Pictures folder, so accessing older images only takes a moment.

There's a lot wrong with SnipDock. The dock takes up too much space on the screen, and can't be minimised, even temporarily; it only displays the last image, even when there's room for more; you can't capture the screen with a hotkey; the program grabs freehand rectangles only; you can't tell it where to save your captures, or disable saving; there's no direct way to manage your saved captures (list, view, delete).

Verdict:

It's basic and extremely limited right now, but SnipDock's ability to capture part of the screen and display it immediately might be useful.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
