Pafwert 1.5
Create secure passwords you can actually remember

Pafwert is a password generator with a difference. Instead of just churning out random junk like "dml&$s2j" or "lBH6-aa5", it uses some intelligence to produce secure passwords which you just might be able to remember.

Launch the program, click Suggest, and you'll be presented with twelve possible passwords. Our tests suggested these won't always be ideal - "boo bureau" is maybe a little short, and "ouppinnnha\waiver" could be tricky to remember - but most were excellent. "90 tablespoon", "baboon@lilac.com", "pupped not pupped", "Stomping the Matrix", "Elephant geezer" and "71 insecure pine nuts" could all work well, but if you don't see anything suitable then you can always click "Suggest" for more.

Once you've happy, clicking any password displays a menu with options to copy one or all of the passwords to the clipboard, or clear the list entirely.

What you don't get here is any way to tell Pafwert what sort of password you need. If you'd like a ten character password with two special characters ($,%,& and so on) and no spaces, for example, you can't define that in advance; you just have to look at the various suggestions and tweak the closest match. That only takes a moment, though, and on balance Pafwert performs very well.

Verdict:

Pafwert does a great job of creating secure passwords which are also memorable.

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.
