MAGIX Website Maker MX
Create attractive and feature-packed Flash websites in minutes

MAGIX Website Maker MX is an easy-to-use tool for creating stylish Flash-based websites, even if you've no previous web design experience.

While you must download and install a local component to use Website Maker, it actually runs in your web browser (IE, Firefox, Opera and Chrome are supported). The site creation process works much like any other tool, though. So you browse a lengthy list of attractive site templates, each of which comes with multiple pages and built-in navigation, and choose one you like. Then you replace the default text, images, music or videos with your own content. And finally you publish the site and share it with the world.

This generally works quite well, as there are lots of customisations available. Would you like to create a thumbnail photo gallery, for instance? Website Maker comes with ten different gallery styles - but that's just the start. You can also present your images in animated filmstrips, or choose from one of 18 "photo tables", where your thumbnails are scattered attractively across a variety of backgrounds. Just find an option you like and it's ready to use in a couple of clicks.

There's even more configurability elsewhere. If you'd like a Flash media player on your site, for instance, there are more than 80 options available. And your site can easily be customised with many other components: music players, contact forms, guestbooks, visitor counters, embedded Google maps, YouTube videos and more.

This new version of Website Maker extends the franchise with even more web design power. The Image Slider helps you to create professional slideshows; your site can play HD videos (H.264) with the new players; and revamped page navigation tools make it easier than ever to build the site you need. While the ability to add custom HTML code means you can extend your site with Paypal buttons, YouTube videos, interactive maps - just about anything you like.

The package includes one domain (www.your-name.com, for instance), five associated email accounts and 5GB of online hosting space, so that could be enough for many purposes. More space is available should you need it, though, and Website Maker MX now also allows you to publish to other hosts if you prefer, so you've plenty of web development freedom.

Note that the trial download here is for the free version of MAGIX Website Maker MX. The free version is limited to 500MB of free web space, only one email address, no web domain and includes adverts.

Verdict:

Well designed templates and some impressive Flash components ensure that Website Maker MX can quickly build a stylish and impressive site.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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 2.17.81
