SmartFTP 6.0.2143
A powerful FTP client with many useful features

SmartFTP is a fast and easy-to-use FTP client that will make quick work of all your file transfer tasks.

The program supports regular FTP connections, as well as FTP over SSL, SFTP over SSH, or TLS (FTPS) for extra security. And then SmartFTP follows a familiar two-pane approach, allowing you to browse your local system on the left-hand side, your server on the right, and transfer files between the two just by dragging and dropping.

Sometimes you may have a lot of files to upload, of course. SmartFTP helps out by compressing files on the fly to save time, but if that's not sufficient then you're also able to schedule transfers to run at a more convenient time. Or you can simply close SmartFTP for the moment, and it'll carry on from where you left off when you next launch the program.

If you have complex transfer needs then you can alternatively set up SmartFTP to keep specified local and remote folders synchronised. So there's no need to worry about locating particular files: SmartFTP itself will figure out what's changed, and upload everything that's necessary as quickly as possible. The program can even handle uploads to several servers in one click.

And there's support for editing files directly on the server, with whatever application is appropriate, which means that again you don't have to worry about manually downloading documents - SmartFTP handles everything in the background.

Please note, there are two SmartFTP editions available. The Ultimate edition has everything we've described here, includes a terminal emulator, Rapidshare and Amazon S3 support, and costs $99.95; the Professional edition is essentially what we've described, and costs $59.95.

Verdict:

It's not cheap these days, but we think the lengthy feature list and good file transfer performance means SmartFTP 4 is worth its premium price

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
