VMware Workstation Player 12.5
Ideal way of testing software in a safe environment or simply trying a new operating system

VMware Workstation Player is the easiest way to run multiple operating systems at the same time on your PC. With its user-friendly interface, VMware Workstation Player makes it effortless for anyone to try out Windows 10 or the latest Linux releases, or create isolated virtual machines to safely test new software and surf the Web. VMware Workstation Player can also be used to run a virtual copy of an old PC so that you can recycle the old machines you have under your desk or stored in the closet.

VMware Workstation Player allows anyone to try new operating systems without rebooting your PC to switch between them.

Easy Install makes creating virtual machines with the latest 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and Linux operating systems easier than installing them directly on your PC. Run over 200 supported operating systems including Windows 8, Ubuntu 9.04, and many other versions of Windows, Linux, and more.

Run Windows XP virtual machines with better graphics, faster performance, and tighter integration than Windows XP mode offers. With Unity, shared folders and drag and drop convenience, VMware Player is the better way to run Windows XP on Windows 8. Use VMware vCenter Converter to transform your existing Windows PC into a virtual machine and eliminate the need to re-install and re-configure your existing applications which is necessary with Windows XP Mode.

Experiment with new operating systems, or safely try and test new software in an isolated environment on your PC. VMware Player is the ideal way to try out a virtual appliance. Virtual appliances are pre-built, pre-configured and ready-to-run enterprise software applications packaged along with an operating system in a virtual machine. Quickly and easily experience the benefits of these applications without the installation or configuration hassles.

What's new in v12.5?

- Adds support for Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Windows Server 2016

Verdict:

Ideal tool for testing software in a safe environment or, if you prefer, to test a new operating system before you deploy.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

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 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• 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+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
