8 Skin Pack
Use 8 Skin Pack to get the look of Windows 8

A skin pack is a great way to give your computer a completely new look without the need to fiddle with endless settings or designing your own icons and backgrounds. Rather than having to go to the trouble of using one tool to change your icons, another to change your desktop theme and yet another to apply other tweaks, a skin pack represents a great way to give Windows a serious makeover with very little effort.

8 Skin Pack enables you get the look of Windows 8 by installing a new desktop theme, changing your desktop wallpaper and installing a new set of icons. But it does not end there. The skin pack goes a great deal further, enabling you to work with a completely new Start menu and feel the benefit of some of Windows 8’s new visual effects.

There’s also a new boot screen and login screen, a customized version of Windows Explorer and much more to work with. The skin pack gives you the opportunity to try out the new Metro interface of Windows 8 without the need to replace your existing copy of Windows with the developer preview or fiddle with virtual machines.

It is worth noting that the installation of the Skin Pack includes the Incredibar toolbar as standard. If you would prefer not to install this, take care to select the Custom Installation options at the start of the setup routine as this will enable you to deselect all of the options relating to Incredibar. It is also worth noting that this is an online version the installer which will check online to ensure that you have the latest version of the pack. There are 32- and 64-bit versions of the software available, as well as a special version for Windows XP user, so take care to install the version that is most appropriate for your system.

Verdict:

If you don’t want to install the developer preview of Windows 8, this is the perfect way to get the look of the upcoming operating system .

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
