Express Points
A lightweight, easy-to-use presentation tool

Express Points is a free Windows and Mac tool for designing and showing slideshow presentations.

The program works much like a (very) simplified PowerPoint. 24 master slide templates help you build your presentation; you can customise each slide with text, bullet points, lists, shapes, images and audio files; and objects can be moved, resized or rotated to suit your needs.

A vertical timeline shows all your slides in sequence. You're able to rearrange and reorganise them as required (or add one of the 34 transitions), and the slideshow can be replayed when required to your audience.

There are plenty of limitations here, of course. Express Points can import PowerPoint PPTX files, for example, but the program will just ignore everything it doesn't support. These can be fairly basic elements, too, like slide backgrounds. The PPTX support may save you time, but don't expect too much.

It's not easy to collaborate, either, as you can't export your slideshow to PPTX or any other kind of easily editable format. It can be saved as a video (in all the main formats) or PDF, though, so you can at least show others what you're doing.

Still, Express Points does provide a solid set of basic presentation tools, and even partial PPTX import is better than nothing at all. If you're looking for a lightweight, simple way to create local presentations then we'd give it a try.

Verdict:

It's not exactly PowerPoint, but Express Points packs in more functionality than we'd expect in a free tool. Worth a look.

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
