Microsoft OneNote for Mac 15.1
Microsoft’s note-taking tool is now available on Mac too.

It’s easy to scatter thoughts and ideas about the place – a scrap of paper here, an obscurely named text file there. Before you know it, your computer and desk are littered with disjointed ramblings, leaving you wondering how you can pull it all together into the gem of an idea you had before.

Microsoft OneNote – a relatively recent addition to the Office family – is its answer to the question of where you keep everything you jot down. And the good news is that – from the 2013 version – the app is now free available on the Mac for the first time too.

Creating notes is mercifully simple, as is organising them into notebooks and sections. Type anywhere within a canvas to enter text, attach images, create lists and more. Everything you create is a container, and you can drag and drop these around the screen until they’re laid out as you wish.

You can also organise your notes using tags – over 20 styles are provided, and it means you can quickly and easily filter data.

OneNote is cloud-based, which means you’ll need to sign into (or set up) your Microsoft account to use it. Once done, however, all notes are stored online, and synced automatically to your other devices. You’ll find mobile apps available for iPhone, iPad and Android among other platforms.

OneNote is one of those programs you need to train yourself to use – but once you start getting to grips with it, you’ll never rely on a post-it note or random text file again. Perhaps the big disappointment is that the Mac version is quite cut-down compared to the Windows build, but we suspect its feature set will quickly evolve to better match the PC version.

Version 15.1 adds the following new features:
+ Print notes or save them as PDFs
+ Drag-and-drop pictures from the web or folders directly into notes
+ Copy and paste formatted text between applications
+ Format Painter support
+ Add and edit hyperlinks to notes


A superb note-taking tool with excellent navigation and collaboration features that's sadly marred by a limited feature-set on the Mac.

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.
