Rapportive for Chrome
Find out more about your email contacts with Rapportive

When you receive an email from someone you often know nothing more than their name and their email address. But once you have installed the Rapportive browser extension you will be able to view a wealth of extra information in a handy sidebar that sits to the right of email messages where advertisements are usually to be found. The extension is available for Chrome, Safari and Firefox and is a great way to add great new options to Gmail.

Rapportive looks up information about a contact on various social networks including Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook and uses this to provide you with a neat profile that tells you much more about them than you might ordinarily know. By linking up your own Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Contacts accounts, the profiles can be made even more detailed and even more useful.

The sidebar includes an image of your contact where possible as well as information about where they are located. Links are provided to any social networking accounts they may have along with quick shortcuts to allow you to send messages or view previous correspondence. There is also space left for you to record notes about a contact and this is useful for recording thoughts and ideas as well as keeping tabs on important dates.

At its heart, Rapportive is a very simple browser extension, but the information is makes readily available to you is incredibly useful. It is also very well presented and the fact that it hides irritating advertisements is another string to its bow. This is one contact management tool that you will wonder how you ever lived without.

Note that this is Rapportive for Chrome.

Verdict:

The contact management tool that Gmail has been waiting for – try it and you’ll fall in love with it.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.11

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 2.18.11

- Fixed an issue on iOS 7 where checkmarks may not appear on messages.
