Wmail
Gmail for the desktop

Wmail is an open-source Gmail and Google Inbox client for the desktop (Windows, OS X, Linux).

The program works just as you'd expect. Add your various accounts, as many as you need, then browse, compose or fetch new emails as required.

You could do this with a browser, of course, but Wmail gives you better support for drag and drop and keyboard shortcuts, as well as providing native desktop notifications when a new message arrives.

Performance is better, too - no multiple tabs or waiting for pages to load - and because Wmail is based on Chromium you can be sure it'll render all of your messages correctly.

Early Wmail builds had plenty of issues, particularly with notifications, but many of these have been addressed. If you had problems with a pre-May 2016 version, give it another try.

Verdict:

Gmail desktop clients aren't the most essential of apps, but Wmail does better than most, and its desktop integration and performance improvements make for a useful and likeable program.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
