EditPad Lite
A powerful Notepad replacement

EditPad Lite is an excellent general-purpose text editor that's fast, easy to use, and packed with useful features.

The program can open as many files as you need, for instance, and you can switch between them with a tabbed interface. The tabs work much like a browser, so you're able to rearrange them by dragging and dropping, close all but the current tab with a right-click option, or save a file by dragging and dropping its tab onto a folder.

EditPad Lite offers a wide range of interesting text manipulation options. You're able to indent and outdent text, insert the contents of a file at a given point in your document, convert a selected block of text to upper or lower case, and more. A powerful search and replace panel includes a history, so you can recall previous searches in a couple of clicks. And the unlimited undo and redo will rescue your work if you make a mistake.

The program can handle documents with Unix, Mac and DOS line endings, and supports Unicode text files, all Windows and ISO-8859 code pages, as well as many DOS, KOI8 and EBCDIC code pages. So no more editing complications, just because you're working with a file that came from (or is destined for) some other platform.

Productivity features include the option to keep the EditPad window on top of your other windows. And the program can leave an icon in the system tray, so it's very easy to access. But if you don't like that, then it's easily changed, as is just about every other aspect of the program - it's all extremely configurable.

Version 7.3.8:

- File Types|Colors and Syntax: Button for the background color is now hidden when "Editor: Folding icons" is selected in the list, as this item does not have a background color.
- File Types|Colors and Syntax: The default color for bookmarks and folding icons is now the margin color rather than the plain text color.
- Preferences|Cursors: Custom mouse pointers now scale on high DPI systems just like the standard mouse pointers.
- Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.2a.


Don't let the "Lite" designation fool you. There is a commercial version available with extra features (and if you like this then check the author's site for the details), but we think there's more than enough text editing functionality here for most people

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.
