Locate files and folders in a flash with this ultra-speedy search tool

UltraSearch is an easy-to-use free search tool which can locate files and folders almost instantly.

The program achieves its high performance by directly accessing the NTFS Master File Table (MFT), which holds details on every file and folder on your PC. And so it's able to return results immediately, typically in around a second or two, without having to waste time or resources building an index: just enter a keyword and watch the results appear.

But the disadvantage, of course, is that the MFT only indexes file and folder names. So you can't search for JPEG metadata, emails or other file content - it's strictly names only.

In addition, the program only works on NTFS-based drives. You probably won't be able to use it to check the contents of, say, your USB flash drives, as they're likely to use a FAT-based file system.

UltraSearch is still useful for its extreme speed, though. And if you know you're going to spend a while searching only for particular file names, then its inability to show anything else is a plus, as it'll help you zoom in immediately to access the files and folders you need.

Version 2.0.3 "increased search performance".

Verdict:

While it's not a replacement for Windows Search, UltraSearch can be a useful addition, as the program makes it very quick and easy to search for files and folders by name.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.13

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.
