Windows 8 BluePoison
UNlock Windows 8 and Office 15 with Windows 8 BluePoison

If you have jumped on the developer preview version of Windows 8 that have been made publically available you have no doubt been eagerly awaiting the release of not only the completed version of the operating system, but also tweaking tool that will enable you to customize and control the OS. This is where BluePoison could help, making it possible to make changes to not only Windows 8, but also Office 15.

From within the app you can download the very latest version of the Windows 8 Developer Preview as well as the preview version of Office 15. Once you have the operating system, office suite, or both installed, you can started to take advantage of the features provided by BluePoison.

The application enables you to unlock the ordinarily hidden Applications folder and enabling the classic Start menu. There is also the option of using a number of new themes and colour schemes as well as the ability to enable Windows 8’s snap feature on screen smaller than would normally be allowed.

At the moment, the options available in BluePoison are a little on the limited side, but it needs to be remembered that Windows 8 has not even been officially released yet. This is definitely an app to keep an eye on although at the moment it is more of a curiosity for the early adopter that an essential installation.

Verdict:

An interesting tool for early adopters of Windows 8, but at the moment it’s not an essential tool.

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
