CorelDRAW 2019
CorelDRAW 2019 running on a Mac.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite is – as its name suggests – more than a single program. At its heart is CorelDRAW 2018, a powerful vector drawing tool (with page layout features) that’s often unfairly left in the shadows of its better-known rivals from Adobe.

CorelDRAW is the main attraction here, and thanks to innovative features like LiveSketch, a tool to freely sketch vector art direct on your computer rather than start with paper thumbnails, it’s a powerful and compelling option for professional designers. Worried about a steep learning curve? The app comes with clear training videos and lots of other help features to get Adobe switchers up and running quickly.

One of CorelDRAW’s best features is the fact it’s an exercise in restrained evolution rather than revolution – each new iteration introduces a handful of new features and refines existing ones rather than trying to overwhelm the user with a smorgasbord of new features they’ll spend a year discovering.

There are minuses – CorelDRAW isn’t available as a standalone app; instead, it’s bundled with extra (and possibly superfluous) tools in the form of Corel PHOTO-PAINT for editing and prepping photos, plus font manager, screen-capture tool and Aftershot HDR, a tool for correcting RAW and JPEG photos. This leads to an eye-popping retail price, although half-price upgrades and an annual subscription do make it more affordable for smaller businesses and professionals.

Also – thankfully – you can download a trial to see if it’s worth the cost of transitioning from your current package. Given the number of features CorelDRAW has that aren’t found natively in Illustrator, that may be an exercise worth pursuing.

What’s new in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019?

+ Now available on Mac as well as Windows.
+ NEW: CorelDRAW.app – access CorelDRAW cloud-hosted files via the web.
+ NEW: Redesigned Objects Docker.
+ NEW: Non-destructive effects.
+ NEW: Pixel Perfect Workflow, Modern Templates.
+ ENHANCED: Redesigned user interface to improve navigation, consistency and productivity.

Verdict:

A worthy alternative to Adobe’s design and drawing packages, with a small learning curve for switchers. The native Mac release is a welcome bonus.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.31

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 2.19.31 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
