Record and automatically rerun common PC tasks with this smart macro recorder

WinParrot is a tool which can record your mouse clicks and keypresses, and then replay them later, allowing you to automate many common PC tasks.

You might have the program open a browser, go to a website and carry out some specific action, for instance. You could run a screen grab tool to capture an image, then do something with the resulting file. Or you might use WinParrot to set up a software demo, such as entering figures into a spreadsheet, and producing a graph with the results.

Setting this up is surprisingly simple. The program's portable, so there's no installation: just launch it, click Record, and start carrying out whatever action you like. Press the End key when you're done, and the recording stops: easy.

As with all macro recorders, there can be complications, particularly with mouse clicks. If you're automating Windows Calculator, say, and the Calc window launches in a different position to when the macro was recorded (which will happen if you ever move it in the future), the clicks will be sent to the wrong position and your sequence will fail.

WinParrot does far more than most free macro recorders to help you resolve problems, though. It clearly displays your sequence of steps after recording, for instance. A Debug mode helps you better understand how your macro works. You can edit steps easily, advanced users can extend their macros with a supplementary programming language, and when you're done you can even schedule macros to be run whenever you like (see the online documentation for more).

Verdict:

An easy to use and surprisingly capable macro recorder.

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.
