Build responsive websites with this WYSIWYG designer

RocketCake is a basic WYSIWYG design tool for building responsive websites.

Clicking File > New leads to early disappointment, as you realise the program only has only a handful of templates, each with only a single page, and designs that look about 10 years old.

Still, if you've the time and patience to start from scratch, there's support for a wide range of page components: text, images (floating, slideshows, galleries), video (YouTube, HTML5), audio, Flash applets, web forms, buttons, menus and more.

Setting these up works mostly as you'd expect. Select an object in the toolbar, drag and drop it on the page, then tweak its properties: text, images, colours, URLs, whatever they might be.

This isn't as easy as it could be. Choose to add a menu, for instance, and there's no graphical wizard to walk you through the process, display previews of menu styles or anything else. You're left to play around with the properties and figure it out for yourself.

It only took us a few minutes to understand how the process worked, though. You're able to preview the results in a local browser at any time, or publish your site to a local drive, or FTP server, when you're finished.

RocketCake also comes in a Professional version (39 Euros) which adds support for custom CSS/ HTML/ PHP/ JavaScript, user-defined breakpoints and premium support.

Verdict:

RocketCake desperately needs more and better templates, and the core designer is quite basic. But it does support a reasonable set of page components, and if you're willing to invest some time in designing a site from scratch, the program could be useful.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.23

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 Version 2.17.2?

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
