Notepad Replacer
Quickly replace Windows Notepad

It's no secret that Notepad is just about as feeble a text editor as you'll find anywhere. If that bothers you then you may have installed something more powerful - but that's not a complete solution. Other applications often still launch Notepad by default, whenever they want to display or allow you to edit text files, and there's nothing you can do about that.

Unless, that is, you install Notepad Replacer.

The program is just about as simple as any utility can be. Install it, you'll be asked to choose the executable that you want to replace Notepad, and - that's it. Your chosen editor should now appear instead of Notepad, just about all of the time, and you can finally get more productive with your text editing.

Don't worry, Notepad Replacer doesn't do anything dangerous, like replacing any system files or changing file permissions. And it doesn't run in the background or change system resources, either. The program just makes a few tweaks to ensure you'll be seeing a lot less of Notepad, in future. And while it worked well for us, if you find you prefer Notepad after all, then just uninstall Notepad Replacer and the editor will immediately return.

Verdict:

Notepad Replacer is a simple way to ensure you get more from your preferred text editor

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.41

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 Version 2.18.41

• You can now see recent status updates in the WhatsApp widget in your iPhone's Today View.
• Voice messages will now continue to play if you switch to another app or turn your screen off.
