Bespin 0.7.3
An extensible web-based code editor

A Mozilla Labs project, Bespin is a web-based code editor with syntax highlighting for CSS, HTML, PHP, JavaScript, Ruby, C, C#, Python and more.

The idea is to move development into the cloud, by creating a shared environment where code can be accessed through a browser, wherever you happen to be. None of the usual complicated access to corporate networks is required, no heavy-duty development tools, you could maybe even go to work on your mobile (though low resolution and no keyboard means this probably isn't a very good idea).

To access Bespin you'll need a browser with HTML5 and Canvas support, which currently means Firefox 3.5+, Chrome 2.0+ and Safari 4.0+. Create an account at and you can immediately begin entering code in the upper part of the window.

Then click in the lower command line to enter commands, which help with managing code snippets, debugging, testing, saving files and reloading them later. We don't have the space here for a Bespin command tutorial, but the only one you really need to know is help - enter this in the command line and you'll get a list of available commands, along with clickable links to web resources that will tell you more.

You're still using Mozilla's own Bespin implementation here, of course, but this download includes an embedded version, that can be extended through JavaScript and then freely used in your own applications.


An interesting and surprisingly capable code editor. Keep in mind that this is a preview, though, and Bespin's API may change in future. This version is for experimenting only

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

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 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
