Free up valuable hard drive space with the capable cleanup tool

KCleaner is a powerful tool that will help to uncover redundant and junk files that you can safely delete.

The program has a good understanding of the kinds of clutter that will be left all over your hard drive by assorted applications. So aside from the usual Windows and browser temporary files, KCleaner can clear caches relating to Java, ATI Drivers, Skype, Google Earth, QuickTime, Adobe Reader and many more.

And while this won't necessarily free up a huge amount of space, it does mean that KCleaner's results compare will with the competition. We tried CCleaner on a trial PC, and it found 2.4GB of redundant files, for instance; KCleaner uncovered 2.73GB.

The program is also very configurable. You're able to choose precisely which types of files it should delete, and there are options to scramble file names before deletion, and securely wipe them so they can't be recovered later.

And once KCleaner is set up as you'd like, it can be left to run in the background, automatically cleaning up redundant files on a regular basis.

Please note, KCleaner will by default try to install toolbars and other "extras". If you don't want this, pay very close attention during the setup process, and decline the various installations as they appear.

What's new in (see changelog for more)?

- 0004053: [Refactoring] Notification of "up-to-date" version when manually check using menu item (Kyle_Katarn) - resolved.
- 0004023: [Refactoring] Licence verification shall use version number (Kyle_Katarn) - resolved.
- 0004005: [Refactoring] Simplification of temporary licence check file deletion (merger of branches) (Kyle_Katarn) - resolved.
- 0003997: [Refactoring] Increased patch resillience to licence verification (Kyle_Katarn) - resolved.


KCleaner does a good job of recovering valuable free hard drive real estate, while taking minimal risks with your system - it's most unlikely to delete anything important

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
