Typora
A minimalist, easy-to-use markdown editor

Typora is a lightweight (Github-type) markdown editor which has plenty of advanced features, yet is also easy to use, even if you've no idea what "markdown" is (a simple language which uses plain text formatting to create rich text documents).

The program opens much like any other simple editor. Here's the document area, start typing text, select and press Ctrl+B to make something bold, copy and paste as usual, and shortcut keys for Open, Find, Print, Save etc are all completely standard.

Clicking through the menus shows you what else you can do: insert links, tables, quotes, ordered and unordered lists, apply 5 heading styles, insert images (including by drag and drop), and on to footnotes, code fences, math blocks with equations, tables of contents, and more.

If this seems complicated, right-clicking in the document area displays a smaller list of the main options: clipboard, text and styling, "insert" tools, and so on.

There's some depth to this. The Copy and Paste tools don't just blindly work with the source text, for instance. If you paste something like <h1>HEADING</h1>, Typora will keep the "first level heading" format, rather than just pasting "heading" as plaint text.

When you're finished, documents may be saved in Typora's native format, or exported to PDF or HTML.

There are also menu options to export as DOCX, RTF, ePub, OpenOffice and MediaWiki, but these require you to install the open-source Pandoc.

Changelog

Verdict:

Typora's simplicity makes it a good choice for markdown beginners. And if you lose interest in the language, no problem, it's also very usable as a general rich text editor.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.41

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 2.17.41

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
