Defragment your Mac's hard drive with iDefrag

Drive fragmentaion is something more readily associated with PCs, but it something that affects Mac users as well. Constantly updating your operating system can lead to file fragmentation that, over time, can lead to a loss in overall system performance.

iDefrag helps to overcome this problem by enabling you to defragment your file system. The application does not need to be run from a bootable CD or DVD like other similar tools - simply indicate that you would like to perform a defrag and your Mac will reboot into a dedicated defragmentation mode.

You can opt to defragment your entire hard drive or just individual files. As defragmentation is a disk intensive activity, iDefrag constantly monitors the temperature of your disk. Should things start to get a little warm, activity will be paused until it has cooled down.

Defragmentation is one of the easiest ways to regain some of your system's lost performance. Files can be accessed faster and general response times will be improved. And with support for AppleScript and Automator you can automate the entire process.
 

Verdict:

A cost effective way to keep your hard drive in good shape and your Mac performing well.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
