Tomboy 1.1.1
Tomboy is a fast and unobtrusive desktop note taking program.

Tomboy is a desktop note-taking application for Linux and Unix. Simple and easy to use, but with potential to help you organize the ideas and information you deal with every day. That's what the web site says, and it's true. Tomboy works like a wiki, except it is self-contained. Start typing and when you type a wiki word, that's a mixed case word LikeThis, Tomboy will highlight it as a link, which you can click on to open a new note with that name. Web and email addresses are also automatically highlighted and turned into links. You can also turn any normal word into a link by highlighting it and pressing the Link button.

Tomboy appears as an icon on your toolbar, so it keeps out of the way yet pops up a list of recent notes, and a search facility, when clicked on. There is a growing collection of plugins to extend the capabilities of Tomboy, from HTML export to printing to daily task notes, including support for importing from other note taking programs.

Tomboy uses Mono, the open source implementation of the .NET framework. Although it was originally developed for Linux, this has meant that the program was soon ported to Windows and MacOS. Tomboy is a simple, quick and unobtrusive program that you will find incredibly useful once you start using it.

Verdict:

For quick notes or more detailed organisation, Tomboy is a good way to get your ideas in order.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
