WeBuilder
A comprehensive web code editor

At first glance WeBuilder looks like any other developer-oriented Notepad replacement. It's fast to load, can open multiple files in a tabbed interface, has a spell checker, syntax highlighting for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, VBScript, PHP, ASP, WML, XML, ASP.Net, C#.Net, Ruby, eRuby, Perl, SQL, and more.

Spend a few minutes exploring the program, though, and you realise WeBuilder does considerably more than most of the competition. This isn't just about highlighting JavaScript commands in colour. WeBuilder also has autocomplete, so if you type, say, "window.d", then it'll automatically display matching elements and attributes (defaultstatus, document) and you can choose the one you need at a click. Function hints remind you of JavaScript syntax as you type. And the Code Explorer lists the functions in your script and let you move to any of them with a click.

You get similar functionality available when you're editing HTML, CSS, PJP, Ruby, ASP or SSI code, and there are some useful extras thrown in, too. So for instance there's a colour picker available in the HTML editor. And a syntax check in the PHP Editor will alert you to errors in real time.

Once you've finished the document then built-in preview (IE and Firefox) should let you know whether it's working as you'd expect. And if all is well then you can directly save documents to an FTP or SFTP server, or even directly publish an HTML file, and all its linked files (images, CSS, JavaScripts) to FTP.

Version 2018 brings (see what's new for more):

- Built upon the successful previous version
- Complete dark visual theme support
- Upgraded user interface with high resolution monitor / high-DPI support
- Updated HTML, JavaScript, CSS, PHP language support and framework definitions
- Address many of the suggestions from our customers accumulated over the last 3 years
- Large number of new and rewritten features

Verdict:

An excellent web editor with strong developer-oriented features that go well beyond the usual syntax highlighting

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
