LilyPond 2.12.3
LilyPond produces beautiful sheet music.
LilyPond is a music notation program. It does not play music, it takes the music you have composed and outputs a score in a beautiful classical engraved style. The music is written in a straightforward ASCII format, no fancy editors are needed and keyboard input is far faster than any mouse driven editing once you pick up the basics.
The main use of LilyPond is to produce finished scores, but it can also produce fragments of music suitable for embedding in word processing or web documents. LilyPond can work on batches of files, and some universities use this method to amass collection of music in their libraries. Speaking of collections, the Mutopia Project is a large collection of public domain music, which includes much of the music from composers who died more the seventy years ago. It is rather like a Project Gutenberg for music and all of the music is provided as LilyPond files.
LilyPond comes with a 300 page manual and over 400 example files, which should provides all the help you need to use it.

Whether you have one jingle or a full opus, this is the way to get it in print.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

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.
