PhotoFiltre Portable
PhotoFiltre is a powerful, free image editor

Take a look at PhotoFiltre and the number of buttons to be found in the various toolbars can be a little overwhelming to start with. The somewhat cluttered nature may be off-putting initially, but if you stick with the app you will find that it is pleasingly powerful and is a cut above the usual freeware image editors that clutter the market. In terms of raw power and features, this is a tool that is on a par with the GIMP, but it is more accessible.

The dazzling array of buttons may seem like clutter to start with, but it does mean that there are a large number of options available to you immediately without the need to navigate through endless menus. There is support for a wide range of image formats and the ability to batch process files is very useful.

A great feature of PhotoFiltre is its speed. Many image editors are large, unwieldy beasts that can take an age to load, but this is certainly not the case here. Effects, filters and transformations are also applied to images quickly. Whether you are looking to optimize your images for use on the web, or want to perform more creative edits, everything you need can be found in the app.

One of the problems with previous versions of the app was the lack of support for layers, but this is something that has been addressed in version 7. In addition to this, there is now also support for transparencies which opens up opportunities that were not previously available. This may not be the most attractive of programs, but if you can turn a blind eye to the way it looks, you have a powerful tool on your hands.

Note that this is the portable version of PhotoFiltre.

Verdict:

An aesthetically challenged app that deserves recognition for the power it brings free of charge.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.124

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 2.19.124 

- New privacy settings allow you to control who can add you to groups. Admins will have the option of sending you a private invite instead. Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups to get started.
- Added call waiting support so you can choose to accept an incoming WhatsApp call while you're already on another call.
- Updated Chats screen design to make it easier to quickly scan your messages.
- You can now send messages directly from the Braille keyboard when using VoiceOver mode.
