Omnimo 5 for Rainmeter
Give your desktop a Metro makeover with Omnimo 5 for Rainmeter

Everyone craves something they don’t have or can’t have for one reason or another. Whenever a new version of an operating system is previewed, it is common for users of existing versions to want to mimic the new features or look of the upcoming release. The Metro interface found in Windows Phone 7 and Windows 8 is a case in point, and using Omnimo 4.1 for Rainmeter, you can transform the look of your computer to look as though you have Windows 8 installed.

Seasoned system tweakers will be aware of Rainmeter, a free desktop customization tool that can be used to completely - and we mean completely - change the look of your computer. Used in conjunction with the Omnimo 4.1 for Rainmeter skin, you can easily achieve the look of Windows 8 and its tile based Metro interface.

The skin not only changes the appearance of your desktop, it also helps to make it more useful. Each of the tiles that makes up the interface can be customised in a variety of ways to display all sorted of information from the number of unread emails in your inbox to the weather forecast for your area. The tiles can also be used as shortcuts to your most commonly used programs and web sites which can be a real boost to productivity.

All that is needed to take full advantage of this free skin is a copy of the free software Rainmeter. Once these are both installed, you are ready to start customising your desktop. Whether you are looking forward to the next version of Windows or not, Omnimo is a great addition to your desktop that you're sure to love.

Omnimo 5 is a huge upgrade. It brings a Windows 8 panel and sidebar (which is customizable), kiosk apps and much more.

Verdict:

If you are impatient to update the look of Windows but can’t wait for Windows 8 to be released, this impressive skin may be just what you have been looking for.

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
