Game Downloader 4.0
Easily find and download free games

Game Downloader is a compact, portable client which will help you to locate and download more than 100 free games.

The games on offer are organised into multiple categories: Arcade, Board Games, First Person Shooter, Strategy and more. Just choose your favourite to see what's on offer. (Although this isn't necessarily very much. The Adventure category contains four games as we write, for instance.)

Select a particular game from the list and you'll see a little more about it: a text description, a screen shot, whether it supports single or multi-player gaming, whether you need an account, and more. Still not enough? In a click you can search YouTube for game videos, or head off to the game website for an in-depth description.

If you just want to play your selected game, though, a quick click of the Download button and Game Downloader will grab a copy of the installation file for you: easy.

There are some irritations here. The games are contained on a server-side database, for instance, which is great as the authors can (and do) regularly update the selection. But, it also makes for a lethargic interface, with a noticeable delay every time you click a new game as the screen grab is downloaded.

And, annoyingly, Game Downloader doesn't display the game download size up-front. You have to click a separate button for that, which then bizarrely displays this information in a system tray alert. Why? We've not the faintest idea.

Still, the program is an easy way to discover and download new, free games, so if you're a keen gamer then we'd definitely recommend you give it a try.

Verdict:

The interface is occasionally odd, but Game Downloader remains a convenient tool which will help you to find and download some great free games

Doesn't Work

Cancel this one, Folks. After downloading a game, the program gives you no clue as to how to find it. After Search and "Downloads" failed, I found the "Game Downloader" file in "My Computer" under "Program Files 86."

The game was inside Game Downloader's own Download file. Once located, the game could not be opened.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:
