    God, Wolframcan be so useful for some annoying things. On that note, consider Wolfram Alpha Pro for an even better experience. The mobile app (2.99 USD) has the step-by-step solution feature like Pro (unless they removed it recently) for a much cheaper cost. If anybody is a college student, mathematica may be offered for free and has integration with Wolfram Alpha... plus you should take advantage of the free stuff colleges offer.

    I use GIMP for photo manipulation and editing. Its free, and has many of the same controls as Photoshop. It is updated with most OS releases and major updates, at least from what I can tell.

    Whilst trying to translate the Japanese Doctor from "Operation Prestige" Facebook page I came across these:
    http://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/hiragana.htm
    http://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/katakana.htm
    Its an online Keyboard that lets you type in Japanese Cruciform you can then copy and paste the symbols into a translation tool i.e Google Translate and fingers crossed get a half decent translation. Doesn't have everything but has a lot of the basics there.
    Also if you are looking for a specific symbol
    http://kanji.sljfaq.org/draw.html
    This allows you to draw the Kanji symbol in the box and then select it from a list of ones that look similar.

    Some tools I've been using lately...

    Maltego Casefile - Make a map of clues. Helps me to visualize connections. It's more intended for law enforcement, but with a little creativity it's useful here. The non-commercial version is free, but has a watermark. So it's not pretty, but it's useful!
    Vigenere Solver - Solves Vigenere, Autokey Vigenere, and Beaufort ciphers in Spanish, German, and English. I've had good luck with it.
    Online OCR - Get copypaste-able text from an image. Useful for long strings of characters you don't feel like transcribing.

    cryptii.com - a good tool to help decode/encode mesagges in many ciphers and formats
    UniView - the hidden unicode characters from the last mission may be used again, so this tool will help to analyze texts

    I find https://www.guerrillamail.com/ a great place to create an easy temporary email for contacting clients and targets. Multiple identities means I need multiple emails ready to go at a moment's notice and they're easily deleted when you don't them anymore.

    Very useful in a few missions: DiffChecker (https://www.diffchecker.com)
    Pretty self-explanatory by the name. This program find the differences between the original text vs an edited one, and finds words that are different.
