Google Earth Pro
Google Earth's extended version is now free

Google Earth Pro is the high-end version of Google's amazing mapping and exploration tool, once priced at an eye-watering $399 a year but now available for free.

Advanced extras include the ability to measure 3D buildings, print higher resolution images or save them as PDFs, or use a Movie Maker tool to record HD video animations of your tours around the world.

You will still need to get a licence before you can install the program by filling in this form. (The URL refers to a free trial, but that's a leftover, it really is free. And while the registration form asks for your phone number, it doesn't appear to care if you enter a single digit, instead.)

Once that's out of the way, download and run the small setup program, and it'll download and install the full Google Earth Pro.

We installed the program alongside a regular Google Earth build and had no problems. We launched Google Earth Pro and it picked up our current "My Places". Close the Pro build and we were able to launch regular Google Earth, as normal.

The only minor issue is that we couldn't run the standard and Pro builds at the same time, but that's much as we expected, and otherwise the dual installation caused us no problems at all.

Verdict:

The standard Google Earth was generally good enough for our ad-hoc usage, but Google Earth Pro's high-resolution printing/ PDF support will be handy occasionally, and the ability to create HD movies of your tours presents all kinds of new possibilities. Go grab your free copy before Google changes its mind.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
