Google Input Tools for Chrome
Easily type in another language

Google Input Tools for Chrome is a free browser extension which makes it easy to type in another language.

(To be clear, this is about entering text, not translating it. Using the Tools means you won't have to add a new system keyboard, but you'll still need to know the language you're trying to type.)

The extension requires some basic setup time, as you choose your preferred input methods and keyboards from the 90+ options available.

When it's time to start typing, simply click the extension icon, choose the input method/ language and click in a text box.

Depending on your selection, you may now be able to type on a virtual keyboard (90+ languages), draw in a handwriting recognition box (40+ languages), or simply type languages phonetically in English letters, and choose the correct word from a list of suggestions.

Please note, Chrome security features mean Google Input Tools can't work in the address bar, the Chrome Web Store or inside other Chrome extensions.

Also, the extension doesn't currently work inside Flash applications.

Verdict:

A great time-saver for anyone who regularly uses multiple languages online.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
