StickySorter
Put your random thoughts in some semblance of order with StickySorter.

Ever found yourself drowning in a sea of sticky notes? Each one has something important scribbled on to it, but taken out of context it’s next to useless. What you need is a large wall you can pin your notes to, preferably organised into relevant groupings.

Not everyone wants to put aside a wall for stickies, which is where StickySorter comes in. It aims to emulate that wall by offering a sticky note app with a difference: not only can you create sticky notes, but you can organise them into groups using the program interface as your virtual wall.

It’s quite a simple tool: create your notes as and when you need to, then colour them accordingly before dragging them into various groups to keep them in order. Notes contain a single catch-all field for your text by default, but more fields can be added by choosing Notes > Customize.

Sadly, the tool lacks the finesse it needs to really grab the attention. It’s functional, but not attractive to work with. While there are some nifty features – the ability to select multiple notes (hold [Ctrl] as you click each one) and organise them into piles or stacks, for example – the unpolished nature of the app means it’s less friendly than it needs to be.

Take your notes: while you can zoom into and out of the wall, you only have two sizes to choose from as far as your notes are concerned: shrink or expand. Shrink is too small, with impractical scrollbars cluttering up what little space is available, and Expand often leaves lots of wasted space. Groups don’t work as intuitively as they could, and it all adds up to a program that’s sorely in need of some tweaks to transform it from an intellectual curio into something truly remarkable.

Verdict:

A promising idea, but the lack of polish makes it more frustrating than genuinely useful.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
