Checksum Verify 1.0
Create and verify checksum files in just a few clicks

Checksum Verify is an easy-to-use program that allows you to create and verify checksum files.

Checksums are values that are based on the contents of a file, so if the file changes, even by just a single bit, then you'll get a very different checksum result. And so you could use a checksum with a file that you've backed up to CD, perhaps, to confirm that the backup hasn't deteriorated over time. Or you might verify someone else's checksum for their program's download, to confirm that no-one else has tampered with it, perhaps to add malware.

Checksum Verify can verify all the main checksum file types: .sfv, .sha1, .par2 and .md5. And it can create .sfv, .sha1 and .md5 files, depending on your needs.

Whatever you're doing, it remains generally easy to use - just choose the option you need from CheckSum Verify's task menu and follow the instructions.

And multithreading support should improve performance, although the default setting of 8 threads may be a little too high. If you find the program works a little too slowly for you, click Settings, reduce the number of threads to 2 and see if that makes any difference.

Verdict:

Checksum Verify is a simple and effective way to make use of other people's checksums, or create new files of your own

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
