RocketDock 1.3.5
A Mac-style dock for Windows

RocketDock is an attractive launcher that makes it easier to find and fire up your favourite apps.

The program comes with some built-in shortcuts for various Windows folders and components - Computer, My Documents, the Recycle bin and so on - which are displayed in a dock at the top of the screen. Point at a folder, click, and it'll be displayed right away - it's all very easy.

You'll want to try customising RocketDock, of course, and that's just as straightforward. Simply drag and drop a shortcut onto the program to add it to the list, or drag and drop the shortcuts within RocketDock to rearrange them, and they'll be updated immediately.

The real fun is to be hard in the RocketDock Settings dialog, though.

Here you can, say, tell the dock to minimize open windows to the dock, so they'll appear within RocketDock rather than cluttering up your taskbar.

You're able to change the position of the dock to the top, left, right or bottom of your monitor (and that can be any monitor, if you've more than one).

And just about every aspect of RocketDock's visual appearance can be tweaked in just a few clicks. The program comes with more than 30 themes, for instance - try them all, see what works for you. It's possible to set RocketDock's opacity, configure the fonts used, set your dock icon quality and size, and much, much more.

Verdict:

RocketDock provides a stylish and very customisable way to launch your apps and shortcuts

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
