YouSendIt Express for WindowsA user-friendly and effective tool for sending files directly from your desktop, helping you to bypass your email provider’s limitations.
Compose your message, select your file and fire it off with YouSendIt Express

Cloud-based backup, sync and file sharing is nothing new, and neither is YouSendIt. However, while – as its name implies – YouSendIt was very much a tool for sharing and sending large files over the internet, it’s now been revamped to compete more with cloud-based sync and share tools like Dropbox and SugarSync.

Rather confusingly, however, YouSendIt has developed not one, but two separate apps for accessing all of its features. If you’re looking to integrate your YouSendIt storage folder with Windows for easy syncing and folder-sharing purposes, you need the YouSendIt Desktop App.

If, on the other hand, you want to be able to quickly access YouSendIt’s traditional file-sending tool, which allows you to send large files without clogging up your recipient's inbox, plus access additional security when sending files, you want this app instead.

YouSendIt Express simply allows you to send your files directly from the application rather than your browser window. It works in a similar way to an email tool: enter your recipients, choose the files to share, then add a subject title and message. Depending on your account, there may be restrictions in place: free Lite users can only send single files up to 100MB in size with 100-character messages in each message, for example.

The Send Options pane includes additional options that can make your transmission more secure – again, some are restricted to premium accounts or incur one-off charges. The most notable option, which is free to all, is “Verify recipient identity”. This works with recipients who also have YouSendIt accounts as they will be required to sign in before they can access the file in question. It also makes it impossible to forward on the email to others.

Once done, click the SendIt button and wait while the file is sent – a progress bar will let you know how the file transfer is progressing. Once complete you’ll be prompted to choose whether to add the file to your YouSendIt folder for permanent access, or to provide a simple download link, which expires within a week.

The Express app can also be used to manage messages sent to you by other YouSendIt members too – access these via the Inbox tab.

If you’re struggling to send a large file by email, either because your Internet provider sets an outgoing limit or your recipient has made it clear they don’t want to receive large files as email attachments, then YouSendIt Express offers a neat workaround.

Verdict:

A user-friendly and effective tool for sending files directly from your desktop, helping you to bypass your email provider’s limitations.

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.
