DropIt 8.0
Drag. Drop. Job done. Easy!

Just about every time you use your PC you're involved in some kind of file management: saving work documents, importing digital photos, downloading music, whatever it might be. And yet Windows makes very little effort to help. It doesn't matter how many times you drag and drop spreadsheets into the \Work\Accounts folder, for instance - Windows will never learn that's where they belong, and you'll always have to browse to the folder manually. Unless, that is, you install DropIt.

This interesting tool aims to add some much-needed intelligence to the file management process. Drag and drop a spreadsheet onto its floating icon, for instance, and it'll ask you to create an association between that file type and a folder. Once that's done then in future dragging other spreadsheets there will instantly move them to your preferred location.

You can do exactly the same thing with images, audio files, videos, whatever you like, but DropIt can handle more than just extensions. It's also able to match text within a file name, so for example you could associate "*granny*.jpg" with a Pictures\Granny folder, "*florida*.jpg" with Pictures\Florida and so on. Drag an entire folder of digital photos onto DropIt and it'll then automatically sort them into pictures of Granny, Florida and whatever other topics you've specified (as long as the files are named correctly, anyway). Very convenient and easy to use.

Dropit 8.0 is a major upgrade. Key new features/improvements include:

- improved "Extract" action to extract in destination folder (correctly managing duplicates)
- improved support to multiple monitors - added "k(s1)" and "k-(s1)" abbreviation modifiers
- added "d>d1" and "d<d1" abbreviation modifiers (instead of "c>d1" and "c<d1" that are deprecated)
- added "ProductName" and "Rating" abbreviations
- added "Split" and "Join" actions - added profile name to the Processing window
- added support to "Export all" and "Import all" profiles from Customize Profiles context menu
- added support to auto-hide target image on the nearest side (auto-detected)
- added support to define the visible pixels of the target image when hidden (read 4.4 of the Guide)
- added support to enable/disable "Ctrl" and "Alt" hotkeys during process (read 4.4 of the Guide)
- added support to enable/disable profile switching with mouse scroll wheel
- added support to force sending one file per mail (setting "0" as "Attachment size limit")
- updated the internal tool to manage SFTP connections (PSFTP v0.63)
- fixed "Open With" action if "Ignore files if in use by other programs" is enabled
- fixed automatic correction of invalid characters in abbreviations
- fixed issue with standby/hibernation when DropIt is minimized
- fixed support to compress in "Store" level - fixed some minor bugs

Verdict:

If you're regularly moving files around then DropIt will be a real time-saver

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
