CCleaner for Mac 1.09
Tidy up your Mac's hard drive with CCleaner for Mac

Deleting files and erasing cookies is no longer something that most computer users perform as a result of running out of hard drive space any more - these days the reason for deleting anything is likely to be a matter of maintaining privacy. CCleaner is a popular cleanup tool that has been available for Windows for some time, but Piriform has now released a beta version for Mac users.

As this is only a beta, expectations should not be set too high, and at this early stage, the options available in the application are a little limited. As things stand, the somewhat sparse interface is divided into two sections: Mac OS X and Applications. In the first section you can analyse the contents of the trash, temporary folder, recent documents, recent applications and recent servers.

An information panel provides you with details of just how much space the selected objects are occupying on your hard drive and all it takes to reclaim this space is to click the Clean button. Moving to the Applications section it is possible to perform a similar cleanup operation on some of the applications you have installed. At present this is limited to Safari and Firefox, but more applications will be supported in future versions of the software.

For the supported browsers, CCleaner can erase your internet cache, browsing history, cookies, download history and saved form information. This is nothing that you are not already able to do manually, but the ability to cleanup all of this space from one location is very handy. As well as freeing up disk space, the utility helps to protect your privacy by hiding how you have been using the internet.

 v1.09 improvements include:

- Improved OS X (10.10) Yosemite compatibility.
- Added Safari 8 cleaning.
- Improved Startup Item Management.
- Improved Cookie Manager.
- New System and Browser monitoring (Professional only).
- Added Social Media links.
- Minor GUI improvements.
- Minor bug fixes.

Verdict:

If the Windows version is anything to go by, CCleaner for Mac should blossom into something impressive.

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.
