Get an instant activity LED for each of your hard drives

Free HDD LED is a simple tool that displays an activity LED for each of your hard drives.

The LEDs can be displayed in a tiny window that you can position anywhere you like on your desktop. Or if that's not convenient, a right-click option will minimise them to the system tray.

And you can also customise the LED refresh rate, hide the system tray icon entirely, or access other configuration options from the program's right-click menu.

It's all very straightforward and easy to use, but unfortunately the resource use is a little higher than we'd like, with the program grabbing 16MB of RAM (private working set) on our test PC.

Version 2.0.3:

- updated license module
- recompiled with Vistual Studio 2015


A simple, if mildly resource-hungry way to monitor hard drive activity

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- 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+)
