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 2.0.1:

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

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
