FrostWire
An easy-to-use P2P file sharing program

FrostWire is a P2P file sharing program for the Gnutella network, and based on the LimeWire source code.

A simple search tool makes it easy to look for particular videos, audio files, images, documents or programs. Or you can just click the Torrents tab and enter any keyword that might appear in your target torrent file name. Search results appear at speed, and you can be downloading files in just a few seconds.

All this comes without the spyware, ads or commercial nag screens that you get in some of the competition. (FrostWire will install the Ask toolbar if you accept all the default installation settings, but clear the appropriate checkboxes and you'll stay Ask-free.)

And this version is more compact, loads faster, delivers improved BitTorrent support and has enhanced spam filters, amongst many other changes.

Version 6.3.6 improvements include (see changelog for more):

- Fixes drag and drop freezes introduced by new Java Runtime Environment 1.8.0_60.
- Fixes SoundCloud search.
- Fixes TPB search.
- Fixes BTJunkie search.
- Fixes TorLock search.
- Updates to Spanish and Romanian translations.
- Chat button on header moved to Tools menu. More space for search bar.

Verdict:

A fast and capable file sharing application

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
