Rapid CSS
A powerful cascading style sheet editor

Rapid CSS 2014 is a powerful cascading style sheets editor that's packed with time-saving features.

The program gets you off to a speedy start with bundled templates helping create many CSS documents from scratch. There are also several HTML templates ("FAQ Page", "Feedback Form" and so on), various samples aimed at helping CSS beginners, and the option to add your own templates for WML, PHP, ASP and other documents.

If the templates don't provide what you need then there's always the Style Sheet Wizard. Choose your font, font size, various colours and other options, while a built-in preview window shows the results. Then click OK and Rapid CSS 2014 will generate the appropriate code for you.

You'll have to at least start more complex projects yourself, but still, there's plenty of assistance on offer here. Auto Complete pops up syntax reminders as you type, for example, helping you remember and write style property names. The CSS Inspector will add, remove and modify style properties for you. And the Code Library comes filled with frequently required code snippets, so you can quickly reuse them as necessary (and of course you can also add snippets of your own).

When the job seems to be done, the CSS Formatter and Beautifier can automatically reformat your code to make it easier to read. The CSS Checker and Validator will confirm that everything is correct (or tell you why it isn't), and you can then save files directly to an FTP, FTPS or SFTP server.

Sounds good? And it is, but there's plenty more you'll notice along the way. Like syntax highlighting for multiple document types (HTML, CSS, LESS, SASS, JavaScript, PHP, XML, ASP, Perl and more). An HTML Colour Picker, CSS Selector and Browser, built-in real-time code previewing, a CSS code compressor, multiple item clipboard, excellent CSS reference, and the list goes on.

Please note, the trial version can only be launched 30 times, so be sure to make the most of each run.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
