Edit files, raw drive sectors, even RAM

HxD is a very powerful hex editor with a host of unusual features.

The program can open files of any size, for instance. (There is a theoretical limit, but as it's 8 billion gigabytes you're most unlikely to notice.)

HxD opens even huge files very quickly. You can page up and down without any noticeable lag, even on underpowered hardware. A Find dialog helps locate information you need, like a text string, or you can use the global Replace dialog to find and replace specific strings, hex values, integer or floating point numbers.

HxD doesn't just stop at files, though. You're also able to open, view and edit your system memory, as well as carrying out raw editing of your hard drives, USB flash drives or other storage devices. Although you'd better be careful: a mistake with any of this could cause you serious problems.

And an extensive list on bonus features includes a checksum generator, the option to export data in various formats, tools to split, concatenate, securely delete and compare files, and more.


HxD is a fast, feature-packed hex editor that's a must for every geek's toolkit

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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.

Version 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
