MacFamilyTree 7.0
Organise your photos with the help of MacFamilyTree 7.0

Genealogy enjoyed something of a revival over the past decade, and the level of interest in family tree research shows no signs of abating. MacFamilyTree is an piece of advanced genealogy software for OS X which makes it easy to create a detailed family tree and work with the data in a variety of ways.

People you add to the tree are more than just simple entries, a wealth of additional information can be stored about individuals making the finished family tree a much more rewarding experience. Even the largest of family trees can be searches quickly so you can home in on any information you are looking for.

To share your completed family tree with others, MacFamilyTree makes it possible to create web sites. The creation process is aided by a deep and rich interface, and options such as the ability to map your family on a 3D globe and generate striking 3D charts really make this software stand out from the crowd.

Data can be exported in a variety of ways, and there is even an iPhone app available to view your family tree on your phone. With support for GEDCOM, you can also work with trees that have been created in other programs, and share your tree with others for collaborative work.

Version 7.0 has revamped MacFamilyTree’s user interface and Edit Mode to make navigation much quicker. There’s improved source management options, more reliable merging of individuals and iCloud integration for keeping files backed up and in sync with MobileFamilyTree on the iPad and iPhone. You can also search and share your research with the free FamilySearch.org website directly from the app. In addition you’ll find new charts - including a more robust Virtual Tree view for navigation purposes – and reports, better media management tools, built-in backup manager and support (finally!) for high-resolution maps when viewing the places where your ancestors have been.
 

Verdict:

With the improvements in version 7, MacFamilyTree makes a strong play for the title of best family history application on the Mac. It almost succeeds, too.

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
