LanguageTool for Chrome
A multi-language spell, grammar, style checker

LanguageTool is an open-source Chrome extension which checks selected text for spelling, grammar, style and other issues.

You can use the system to check text you're entering (a post in a forum, a few paragraphs in a web form), or any other selectable text on a web page. Just click in the relevant text box or select the text, then click LanguageTool's address bar icon, or press the customisable hotkey.

A popup window appears almost instantly appears on the right with a report on your text: spelling mistakes, grammar issues, whatever rules you might have broken.

Errors aren't highlighted in the source text, but typically this doesn't matter. LanguageTool displays spelling mistakes or other issues, suggests alternatives, you click one and it's fixed in the source.

The extension has some handy configuration options. You can turn off checking of particular rules with a click, or add special words to a personal dictionary to prevent them being flagged as mis-spelled.

LanguageTool is multi-lingual, too, with support for more than 25 languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Polish, and Russian.

Please note, LanguageTool checks your text by sending it to https://languagetool.org over a securely encrypted connection. There's no apparent issue with this - see the privacy policy if you're concerned - but you still might not want to use it to check confidential or personal text.

Verdict:

LanguageTool doesn't have the real-time checking and text highlighting of tools like Grammarly, but it correctly detected lots of issues in our tests, and the support for 25+ languages is a major plus.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.22

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 2.17.21

• You can now ask Siri to read your latest messages (iOS 10.3+)
• Visual improvements to the Calls tab, Contact Info and Group Info screens 
• In the My Updates screen, you can now select multiple statuses at once and forward or delete them
• Support for Persian
