As a protocol, XMPP (formerly known as Jabber) would fulfill a lot of these requirements (Possibly because WhatsApp is using XMPP on the backend) It is massively extendible, so I'm picking a specific client that covers a lot of these requirements. Its impossible to cover all since things like being able to pick a contact on your address book is because ...

Anki is a spaced repetition flashcard program and it should be exactly what you are looking for. In addition to just text it also supports images and sounds, so if you are studying a language you can add sound so you can hear how words are pronounced, or if you have a "Flag of Finland" question you could have a picture of the actual flag as answer. ... ...

An app that comes to mind is Byword. From what I can see, it does use the Stack Exchange 'style' of markdown, runs natively, and features preview integration. I'm not sure if the preview is "live" but it will allow you to see / review your markdown before exporting / saving it. It is definitely universal (works on iPhone & iPad) and will even ...

This is currently not possible without jailbreaking (or 'rooting' as you have referred to) since there are a number of restrictions present on iOS (and the App Store) that such an app would break. However, iOS does come with built-in Restrictions in Settings that allow you to passcode-prevent features such as deleting apps. For more information on ...

I use iAnnotate and I love it. It costs $9.99 on the Apple iTunes App Store. PDFs that are already OCR'd can be highlighted and whatnot using the software, and searching them is simple. There are also a lot of other helpful tools like highlighting and the ability to add notes (annotate). The only negative I've found is that sometimes when I zoom in or out ...

Work with computers running Server 2012 Yes. Support multi-finger gestures Yes. Free is always nice Yes. Microsoft actually has their own RDP client for iOS, which ...

I have used RealVNC viewer. It's free and they are updating it relatively often - not that I have encountered too many bugs with it. In case of some connection hickups, it'll mess up the the graphics for some time, but any activity - moving window, for example - fixes that, so it's only a very minor annoyance. Your requirements: Support touch, of course. ...

I used to run such a tool during the Tohoku earthquake and got tens of thousands of people reporting their status. My experience is that such a tool is difficult to maintain and support, especially during busy times and amid electricity power cuts. So even though I am usually in favour of self-hosted solutions, here it makes more sense to rely on a solid ...

Hellooo, this is Lenny! Unfortunately, the original site (www.itslenny.com) is down, but you can find lots of videos, and imitators, on Youtube and elsewhere. A brief Google search turned up this repo: https://github.com/lgaetz/freepbx-Its_Lenny This seems like exactly what you want, though perhaps not the most user friendly.

For a hopefully suitable Android app, I've checked with my app search by permission for a task app requesting the RECORD_AUDIO permission, indicating it should have voice support. That yielded 10 apps, which I checked, and here are some at least partly matching your requirements: Star Trek ToDo Agenda This app offers a widget for voice-to-text to add a ...

The timeline project works pretty well for this - Its got an easy UI for creating events (I've shown the options that would work best for your needs already selected- add more events makes sense when you want to input more than one event at once), you can colour code them by setting categories. You can also add freeform data under descriptions, and these are ...

I made this C# Windows Form yesterday. It uses a SQLite data source.

The SQLite DB file is called test.s3db located in the release.zip file. When you extract the zip files, ...

I've used the Open Caching app on Android a little, and it seems to work well. Open Caching is different from the "Geocaching" app from Groundspeak (the main geocaching app that everyone uses) in that it is free and open, not only to search for caches, but to place them, etc and requires no membership and has no fees. Here is a quote from ...

Before there even was Office Lens, the de-facto app for this sort of thing on Android and iOS systems has been CamScanner for some time. It does exactly the sorts of things you're talking about here. There are quite a number of similar apps as well, but that is the one I've seen used by folks for this job. Besides your requirements about auto-crop and ...

Reading your tags it seems like you are looking into something with iOS and Android support. I use Myibidder for my own sniping purposes. It's available for iOS (offers both iPad and iPhone support) and Android as well. I like it because it allows me to browse eBay and import my Watch List, and also supports groups (where you set a number of snipes, then ...

Prompt 2 by Panic is one of the best SSH clients for iOS and has a nice UI, a bit expensive though. With regard to security, you can add and even generate SSH keys directly in Prompt. From the Prompt page on Panic's website: You can also PIN lock Prompt so that it remains secure even if your device is unlocked. And yes, you can also lock Prompt with ...

As with so many things internet, it's all a matter of getting the right search terms. I used “unlimited canvas app iphone,” but then changed it to “infinite canvas app iphone.” The results are many and your decision will be based on how well you like the interface. I played with one that appeared to be capable, easily understood for things like dragging ...

macOS has a built-in application called Digital Colour Meter. It's installed by default, in the /Applications/Utilties folder: Here is me using it to find out the background color for Software Recommendations' menu bar, which is RGB(23, 77, 96): As @Tetsujin notes in the comments, via the menu View → Display Values you can change the output to ...

I use KakaoTalk (free). It has all the features you required except end-to-end encryption and personally I like that it's available on Windows and Mac. It's the main instant message application in South Korea: KakaoTalk reached 57 million users registered on August 2012. On average, 24 million users are estimated to be using the app on a daily basis and ...
