Grammarly for Windows
Check spelling and grammar with Grammarly.

Grammarly is a free online tool that checks your spelling and grammar on Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, in web forms and just about anywhere else you type online.

This Windows and Mac app allows you to use the program outside your web browser, either as a free-form word processor or through importing text via the clipboard ot by dragging compatible document types into the program window.

Once installed, the system works automatically. Once text has been imported or typed into its main window, Grammarly goes to work, with problem words or phrases underlined in red.

It's a familiar idea, but Grammarly goes a lot further than some of the competition. Context-sensitive checking means the system doesn't just complain about spelling (theyre), it also knows when words are used incorrectly (go over they're). And the grammar checker moves beyond the basics to tackle very complex errors and issues.

Fortunately, none of this complexity is visible to the user. If there are no mistakes, you'll see nothing beyond the Grammarly icon. If there are problem areas, they're underlined in red, and hovering your mouse over them displays a pop-up with an explanation and some alternatives. Click one of these suggestions to replace the original text, or tweak it manually, and carry on typing.

You'll need a free Grammarly account to use the app, which covers you for critical issues. A Premium account (currently $29.95 a month, or $139.95 a year) unlocks over 400 further checks and features, with the promise of improving your work beyond all recognition. For most people, however, the basic checks should suffice.
 

Verdict:

Easy to use and genuinely intelligent, the free version contains just enough to help tighten up your writing.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.120

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 2.19.120 

- Muted chats will no longer display notification badges on the app icon when you receive new messages.

- New alignment guidelines help you position stickers, emojis, and more when editing media.
