Hamster Free Burning Studio
Hamster Free Burning Studio is an approachable disc burner for beginners

While very functional, burning discs at your computer is hardly the most exciting thing you can use your hardware for. Once you have got into the habit of burning data to CD and DVD, you think nothing of running off a copy of your latest holiday photos, but for newcomers the entire process can be rather bewildering. Hamster Free Burning Studio is a free disc burning suite that boasts an ultra-friendly interface that will not be off-putting to even the most nervous novice.

The free version of the program can be used to create and copy CDs, DVDs, Blurays and ISO images, and a simple, clean selection screen greets you to enable you to choose what task you would like to perform. If you are copying a disc, you will be guided wizard-style through the process, but there is a more hands-on approach to create a data disc.

You can opt to drag and drop folders or files into place, or you can navigate through the contents of your drive, selecting what you would like to add as you go. You also have the option of working in mini-mode which reduces the size of the program window to a minimum and leaves to you work in drag and drop mode.

Unlike many disc burning tools that have a very utilitarian and often intimating interface, Hamster lives up to its cute and fluffy name. The interface is about as inviting and unintimidating as it could be, and there are a number of colour schemes to choose from.


Simple, cute and useful, this is an ideal beginner’s burning tool that has the basics covered.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
