Scott's Gmail Alert
Monitor your Google account with Scott's Gmail Alert

Google offers a number of online services, each of which can require regular attention. If you use Google Mail, you will need to check your inbox from time to time to see whether new messages have arrived while Google Calendar will need checking to ensure that you don’t miss an important appointment. If you manage your RSS feeds in Google Reader, checking the web site is essential if you want to keep up to date with the latest news and posts.

Scott's Gmail Alert 4 can do all of this for you, monitoring multiple Google Accounts and alerting you when something needs your attention. Each account can be assigned a different colour label so when an alert is displayed you can tell at a glance which account it relates to.

The appearance of alerts can be customised in terms of colour, size and transparency, and you can also opt to show an on-going message count so you always know the state of your inbox. A great feature of the program is the scheduling option. This can be used to change when Scott's Gmail Alert 4 checks Google for new alerts - if there are times of the day when you would rather not be bombarded with alerts, you can configure these as quiet hours.

There are a number of programs that can be used to monitor Google Inboxes, but Scott's Gmail Alert 4 takes things to the next level, supporting not only additional Google services but also multiple accounts. As an added bonus, the program can also be run from a USB drive so it can be used on any computer.


If you want to keep up to date about what is happening with your Google accounts, Scott's Gmail Alert 4 is a superb tool which has much more to offer than other similar tools.

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+)
