WordPress 4.4.2
A full-featured content management system

WordPress is an open-source content management system (CMS) that can be used for anything from a personal blog to a full business site.

The program is based around PHP and MySQL, but you don't have to a web development expert to get everything to work. Support for templates and themes mean you're able to customise the look and feel of your site quickly, without complex coding.

An extensive feature list includes full blog post comment support (with Trackback and Pingback), with robust spam protection; a full registration system so you can optionally have people create profiles before they can comment; there's an option for password-protected blog posts that will be hidden from the public; and there's easy importing from other blog platforms, including Movable Type, Textpattern, Greymatter, Blogger, and b2.

Need even more functionality? Take a look at the plugins - there are thousands freely available, many of which are amazingly powerful. BuddyPress is a perfect example. Install this any you can almost immediately create a custom social networking site of your own. Your users are able to register, create profiles, post personal messages, add friends, create and come together in groups, post directly to their Facebook and Twitter streams, and more. It's hugely comprehensive, and can be extended further with plugins of its own.

WordPress 4.4.2, codenamed "Clifford", ships with these core improvements:

- This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

Verdict:

WordPress is the CMS of choice for millions, and it's easy to see why - it offers considerable power and flexibility out of the box, with a wide range of attractive themes, and can be extended with some of the best plugins you'll find anywhere

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.13

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.
