Outlook on the Desktop
Gain easy access to Outlook with Outlook on the Desktop

In the days of desktop calendars it was quite usual to have a calendar permanently on display. This not only made it quick and easy to enter new appointments when necessary, but also to check what was happening in the days and weeks ahead. With the move to digital calendars such as Outlook, it is easy to lose your calendar under a sea of windows. This is something that Outlook on the Desktop aims to address, ensuring that your Outlook calendar is never too far away.

As you’ve probably guessed from the name, this is a program that adds your Outlook calendar directly to the desktop. This means that when you need to check what is planned for the week ahead, all you need to do is press the Windows key and M to minimize all open windows and you’ll be able to see in a flash. All you need is a copy of Outlook 2003 or later and you’re good to go.

The benefit of using this app rather than sticking with working with Outlook in the more traditional way is that while your calendar can still get buried, getting it back it just a keyboard shortcut away. To prevent the calendar from being too distracting if you are the sort of person that makes extensive use of the desktop for other things, the opacity of the app can be adjusted to give a slightly more faded and subtle look.

Outlook on the Desktop really does provide you with a complete, customizable Outlook window integrated into the desktop. As such, anything you can do in Outlook, you are now able to achieve from the desktop. You are not restricted to viewing the calendar; you can also switch to your inbox, contacts and other sections of the app. There is support for drag and drop, and a system tray icon provides access to even more options.

What's new in 3.5.0? (see complete changelog for more):

Updated to use .NET 4.6.2 for even better HiDPI support.
Fixed laggy resizing of windows.
Fixed flickering when moving/resizing of windows.
Misc fixes and performance enhancements to installer.

Verdict:

A great way to access Outlook without the need to constantly switch windows – a real time saving tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.7

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.
