What to do in a disaster

Citizen AID is a UK government-sponsored app which gives advice on the best immediate response to a bomb blast or armed attack. (It's designed for UK users, for example with the UK 999 emergency number, but most of the content could help anyone, anywhere.)

We expected this to be the kind of basic instruction that just about everyone would know already, and at first it looks that way. If there's an ongoing attack, for instance, you're advised to run, hide if that's not possible, tell the emergency services and only treat the injured once you know you're safe.

That's just the start, though. The app also has tips that might not have occurred to you, like turning your phone to silent if you're worried about attackers still being around. It summarises the key details you should tell the emergency services: the nature of the attack, exact location, number of injured, whether they're walking or not walking, current dangers, any emergency services present. And it also lists the immediate first aid steps to take for different kinds of injuries.

Verdict:

Citizen AID is closer to an ebook than an app, and even at that level it's more awkward to navigate than it should be. But there is genuinely helpful information here, details that might not know or could just forget in the immediate stress of an attack. Take a look.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
