GParted
GParted is a partition editor that handles Linux, Windows and MacOS filesystems.

GParted, or the GNOME Partition Editor to use its full name, is a program for creating, resizing and removing partitions on a hard disk. IT also deals with creating and resizing the filesystems on those partitions. Although a Linux tool, and included with many Linux distributions, GParted fully understands Windows filesystems and boot methods and is available as a live CD or USB image so you can use it for partition reworking and repair on a Windows computer too.

The live disc option is usually the safest choice, unless you are working on a second disk drive that does not contain your operating system - manipulating the partitions that contain the operating system running the partition editor is like those cartoon characters that saw off a tree branch while sitting on it.

In addition to a CD iso image, GParted is available as an image file that can be used to create a bootable USB stick. Both the stick and the CD can then be used as a network boot source if you need to work with several computers on a network. GParted handles all Windows filesystems, NTFS and FAT variants in addition to all popular, and some not so popular, Linux filesystems. It even works with the Mac HFS+ filesystem, although increasing partition sizes is not possible with HFS+.

GParted is also available on other Linux live CDs, such as Knoppix and Clonezilla.

GParted live 0.20.0-2

 * The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded.
   This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Oct/24).
 * Adding package syslinux-efi.
 * Bug fixed: missing required packages syslinux-utils.
 * Bug fixed: /sbin/start-stop-daemon was missing.
 

Verdict:

An extremely useful tool to have, whatever operating system you use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
