Xara Web Designer 365
Create stylish, feature-packed websites, no HTML experience required

Xara Web Designer 365 is a template-based design tool which makes it quick and easy to create quality websites.

The program comes with a host of professionally-produced multipage responsive web designs (only a few are editable in the trial, though). These can immediately be enhanced with your preferred buttons, headings, navigation bars, photos, icons, movies, MP3s, PDFs and more. Just drag and drop an item onto your page and customise it to suit your needs.

If you'd like to add some interactivity to your site, you'll appreciate the program's widgets. These can embed YouTube videos on your pages, Google Maps, Facebook Like and Twitter buttons, media players, contact forms, news feeds and more.

All of this can be further tweaked or rearranged as necessary. You can even build a site from scratch if the bundled templates don't appeal. And once you've finished, the program will put the site online for you, either at your own web host or using 500MB of free web space included with the package.

Web Designer 365 extends the program with parallax scrolling, 30 additional scroll animations, 40 extra "on reveal" animations, powerful new SmartShape types (charts, photo grids), and the addition of Google's Material Design icons, a collection of more than 1500 professionally-designed vector graphics.

Xara Web Designer is a very capable tool, but if you need more power then you may prefer the Premium edition. This adds tools to create presentations, animations (Flash and GIF) and single page "SuperSites". You get "sticky" objects (like a navigation bar which stays at the top of the page as users scroll), extra animations, advanced widgets (ecommerce, charts, photo sliders), and a pile of extra drawing and graphics tools.

Verdict:

Xara Web Designer is a good WYSIWYG web builder, easy to use and capable of producing quality results. If you need to produce anything more than a simple personal site we'd recommend the Premium edition, though - it's more expensive, but the extra power is worth the cost.

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+)
