WindowBlinds 8.1.2
Change, customise and theme just about every aspect of your user-interface

If you’re one of the many people who like to customise your desktop, you’ll feel somewhat naked when you sit in front of vanilla version of Windows, when you first purchase or use a PC at work. To be fair, Windows 7 offers a fair better visual experience than previous editions. As long as your graphics card is capable of powering the Aero theme, this is a good enough option for most users.

However, you can go much further with the Windows operating system. Just about every element of the desktop can be configured, other than the usual components such as the wallpaper, fonts and size of your icons. The only problem is that advanced tweaking of your interface is not encourage by Microsoft, apart from official themes you can download from the Microsoft website.

WindowBlinds goes much further than downloading a theme. It puts you in full control over your own customisation. On a basic level, you can just download a theme and install. There are hundreds of pre-designed themes which might suit your requirements. Alternatively, download a theme and customise this to your requirements. You can also create a theme from scratch if you know what you are doing.

WindowBlinds 8.1.2 contains these changes/fixes:

- Improved save dialog responsiveness in Chrome
- Various Firefox performance enhancements
- Improved user experience for owners of GTA V

Verdict:

Powerful desktop and theme customisation tool that will enable you to alter and update just about every aspect of your user-interface

Great Program -but Win 7/8 ONLY...

Posted by: Michael Winbush, 20 June 2013 03:52

Just a couple of points - WindowBlinds 8 doesn't work on the older OS like XP or Vista (you'll have to find a copy of WindowBlinds 7 for that...) Also, the price for the software is now only $9.99 (or $6.99 if you've previously registered a version of the program...)

Hi Michael, yes we changed the system requirements to reflect the move to 7/8 only. We didn't change the price though - updated!

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
