SoftPerfect RAM Disk
Create a super-fast virtual drive using your PC's memory

SoftPerfect RAM Disk is a straightforward tool that allows you to create virtual drives based entirely on your PCs memory.

These drives then look just like any other; they'll appear in Explorer, you can drag and drop files there, or use them to store temporary files created by Windows or your applications. But because RAM performs so much better than conventional hard drives, your RAM disk could be hundreds of times faster in some situations.

So why bother? You could use a RAM disk to hold an application's temporary files, for instance. If it makes heavy use of these then this could greatly improve its performance.

And the program could also be useful for privacy reasons. Reconfigure your browser to store its session data on the RAM disk, say, and it'll run faster, but when you reboot your PC then your browsing history will disappear. (Although if that's a problem for you, don't worry, you're able to create persistent RAM disks which case their contents to your hard drive when your PC shuts down.)

Beware, though, there's a potential problem. The RAM Disk uses your system memory, and if you don't have enough (and most people don't) then taking away more RAM to create a virtual disk will slow you down.

The program is now free for personal use - commercial licenses cost $49.

Version 3.4.8 (Changelog):

- Windows 2016 Server and Windows 10 Anniversary support.
- Fixed a BSOD when a boot-time volume couldn't be mounted.
- Fixed creating VHDX and similar files on HDD-emulated disks.


SoftPerfect RAM Disk may help to improve your PC's performance in some situations. (Though it might also slow you down, so be careful.)

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+)
