Cool Reader
A portable eBook reader for ePub, fb2, mobi, more

Cool Reader is an open source eBook reader, XML/CSS-based, which runs on Windows, Linux and Android devices.

Opening files can be a little awkward, because the program doesn't use native Windows dialogs, or accept drag and drops - you must grind your way through its built-in file browser, instead.

Locate your file and the situation improves. The book is automatically sized to fit the window; there's a nice animated page-turning effect as you move through it; a separate table of contents and bookmark system make navigation easy.

A "Night Mode" option displays light-coloured text on a black background, reducing glare.

A "Text to Speech" feature optionally reads your book out loud.

Cool Reader is exceptionally configurable, too: you're able to tweak fonts, colours, text formatting, page layout, controls and more.

The package also includes tools to help you browse online eBook catalogues, including Project Gutenberg and the Internet Archive, but these had some problems. We were able to view details of books, but not download or view them.

Verdict:

Cool Reader is an excellent and highly configurable eBook viewer. We had problems with some of its more advanced features, however, so you might have to spend some time experimenting to find out what works for you.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.30

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 2.19.30 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
