CyberSky 5
The colour of the virtual sky changes depending on the time of day.

If you’re into your astronomy, then CyberSky could well be the application for you. It promises to deliver a view of the night sky from any location and just about any time, letting you peer all the way back to 15,000BC or take a peek into the far future up to 15,000AD.

Once launched, you set your location, choose a time and then view the night sky from any vantage point. Zoom into the picture to reveal more depth, use the mouse to change vantage point or switch on the animated feature to see how the sky changes as time passes – you can control the speed of this process to view days, weeks or even months of celestial activity at a time.

The program aims to appeal equally to amateurs and professionals, children and adults. It shows all of the night sky’s objects, from stars to planets and moons to meteor showers, and you can choose exactly what gets shown on-screen. It’s all relatively straightforward to control, with options for quickly switching locations, jumping to specific time points like noon or sunset, and being able to change your vantage point swiftly and with the minimum of fuss.

The program is also capable of exporting maps as images or providing printouts for reference, and there’s a comprehensive help system for those who need it, although much of the program’s functionality can be worked out through trial and error.

This trial version allows you to test the program on up to 30 separate days before registration is required. Other limitations are that fewer stars and deep sky objects are displayed, and that all printouts are watermarked.  

Verdict:

A decent tool for viewing the night sky and learning more about the movement of planets, stars and other celestial bodies.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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.
