PilotEdit Lite
Edit a wide range of text and programming files with PilotEdit Lite

Many people look no further than the humble Notepad app for editing HTML files and programming. While in many respects it can be useful to work with such a basic tool, cutting out unnecessary bloat that slows things down, there is also a strong argument for using something that is a little more feature laden. PilotEdit is an amazing file editing tool that overcomes many of the restrictions of Notepad and adds host of useful features that will help you to work better and faster.

A key advantage of using the app is the fact that it can be used to open huge files – files that are over 50GB in size – and if you are using the app for web site development, there is a built in FTP client that can be used to work with online file over 4GB in size. There is support for dozens of different files types and the program can even be used as a HEX editor complete with unlimited levels of undo and redo.

Multi-line find and replace makes it easy to make changes to code on a large scale, while file and directory comparison and merging means that it is possible to work with the same files on different machines and bring the results together with ease. With the added bonus of customizable syntax and keyword highlighting, PilotEdit is a tool that lends itself to a large number of different tasks.

There is a free Lite version of the program available in addition to a paid for version. There are not a huge number of differences between the two releases, but if you do spend some money on the app you do gain extra features such as the ability to compare, encrypt and decrypt files that are over 4GB as well as the option of working with SFTP for added security. There are other additions such as string extraction and duplicate line removal, but both editions are very capable tools.

Verdict:

An extraordinary replacement for Notepad that can be put to so many uses.

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.
