Earth Alerts
Track extreme weather across the globe

Earth Alerts is a weather program with a difference. It's not about finding out whether it'll be windier than usual this afternoon, or you might have showers tomorrow: instead, it gives you updates on active volcanoes, tsunami reports, cyclones, landslides, forest fires, and plenty of other extreme weather from all around the world.

The program organises this information into three main areas: a Global Overview, United States Overview, and whatever custom locations you might provide. Just glancing at each section gives you a little more information - as we write, for instance, the Global Overview section has one "Tropical Cyclone" alert - and clicking any of these will allow you to drill down for the detail.

There's a great of detail, too. You'll see who issued any warnings or alerts, for instance, and exactly what they say. Maps and satellite images told us more about the cyclone. Our volcano alerts displayed reports, photos, webcam views. And there are all kinds of links to external services, from websites to Google Earth.

The program does also support more regular weather-monitoring tasks, though. Add a location and you can view the current conditions, radar maps, satellite photos and more, as well as a prediction for the next few days. Although even here, there's extra data available. We added Los Angeles as a location, for instance, and were able to view a Hazardous Weather report which warned up of possible rip currents at the beaches, and an upcoming prolonged heat wave.

What's new in 2020.1.112 (see full changelog for more):

- Bug fixes and various modifications to cleanup and streamline the code

Verdict:

It may not be a program you'll use every day, but Earth Alerts is fun for extreme weather fans, and could be useful for checking out destinations before you go travelling

WhatsApp Messenger 2.20.11

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 2.20.11 

- 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.
