Vector Clocks - Best of 2011
Get a desktop alarm clock with a difference...

Vector Clocks provides a set of 50 free desktop alarm clocks.

Yes, it's true, that does sound a little dull. But look at the program image. These aren't boring digital timers: they're high resolution vector images which look and work just like an analogue clock (the second hand moves), and can be resized to any scale and set to a 3D perspective view without losing any quality.

But if you're not interested in such eye candy, don't worry, there's plenty of practical functionality here, too. So for instance you can have multiple clocks running, each set to a different time zone. You're able to set alarms for a particular date and time, or just after a fixed period (15 minutes, say). And you get to choose the message and sound that will play when the alarm goes off.

There are also plenty of options to configure exactly how the clock will be displayed. You can have it shown on top of other windows, maybe, if you really must keep an eye on the time. The clock can be made transparent if you'd like to still see what's underneath. You can send it to the background to make sure it doesn't get in the way of other apps, or you can just run the clock as another program.

And, interestingly, the program doesn't come as one big framework that you install, and then choose the clock design you prefer. What you actually get is a small (around 1.1MB) executable file for every clock, and these are portable, so you can add them to a USB key and have the same timer features on whatever PC you might happen to be using.

Verdict:

These gorgeous clocks provide an eye-catching way to set alarms or just watch the time

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
