A versatile flashcard-based study aid

Anki is an open source study aid which can help you remember just about anything.

The program allows you to create, download and edit flashcards. Each card has a question on one side, its answer on the other. This could be simple text - a deck on capital cities might use "France", "Paris" - but Anki also supports graphics, audio, video, even scientific markup (via LaTeX), so there's plenty of scope to be inventive.

When it's time to study, you're shown each card. When you think you've remembered the answer, press the spacebar to check. Finally, you get to rate your own answer based on its accuracy, and how easy it was to remember. Cards you got right will be shown less frequently, and Anki will instead focus on anything you can't remember.

If you're unused to flashcards then this can seem complicated, and there are plenty of rules, options and settings to learn.

Fortunately many existing Anki users have created and shared decks covering everything from "Mandarin Chinese" to "IATA airport and city codes", "Actor and actress pictures" and "Applied anatomy and physiology" (explore the full list here). You can freely download and try out anything of interest, a quick and easy way to learn the program basics.

Better still, there are Anki builds for Windows, Mac, iPhone, Android and Linux, so you can continue your studies just about anywhere. And there's even a free service to keep cards in sync across all your devices. (Beware, though: the iPhone build is a commercial product and costs $24.99.)

Version 2.0.36 brings (Changelog):
Fix a problem starting the app on Vista. If you don’t have trouble starting 2.0.35, there is no need to upgrade.


Anki takes a while to learn, and the interface desperately needs a revamp. But the program scores where it matters: the core technology is excellent, it's enormously configurable, and there are lots of shared decks and add-ons to explore.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
