TweetMyPC 2.0
Remote control your PC via Twitter

You're at work, 20 minutes away from a really important meeting, and realise you've left a vital file on your home PC. Oops. Normally there would be nothing to do but prepare your excuses, but if you'd installed TweetMyPC beforehand then there could still be hope.

Leave this ingenious utility running on a PC and it'll constantly monitor the Twitter account you specify. If you want a particular file, just send it a tweet specifying the file path and name and it'll be emailed to you at an attachment. It's quick, easy, a potential life saver, but only one of the useful commands TweetMyPC supports.

If you're away from home and come across a big file you'd like to download, for instance, then you don't have to grab it now. Send a tweet with the file URL to TweetMyPC, it'll download the file onto your home PC and it'll be waiting when you get back.

Maybe you'd like to see your desktop? Send the "screenshot" command to TweetMyPC, it'll take a grab of your screen, upload it to Twitpic and send you the URL.

And there are other commands to reboot your PC, shut it down, retrieve its IP address, list running programs, close any you don't need, and much more. You can even create custom commands to launch whatever programs you like, all via a simple tweet sent from just about anywhere in the world.

Verdict:

TweetMyPC offers an easy way to control your PC from any internet-enabled PC, laptop or mobile

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.
