Windows 7 App Launcher
Start mulitple programs simultaneously with Windows 7 App Launcher

When you are working with Windows it is likely that you use your computer for a number of different tasks. When working you might need your word processor and web browser to hand, while when working with digital photos you will need a file browser and an image editor. While it is possible to launch each of these applications individually, Windows 7 App Launcher can save your time by enabling you to create shortcuts that can be used to launch multiple programs simultaneously.

To save you from having to constantly navigate the Start menu or cluttering your desktop with countless icons, Windows 7 App Launcher can be used to create shortcuts that are activated by a keyboard shortcut and can launch several applications at once. As an added bonus, the app itself is portable so you pop it on a USB drive and take it with you as you move from one computer to another.

Windows 7 App Launcher can be used as a desktop gadget, essentially providing you with an alternative to the Start menu when it comes to launching applications, but it is in its multi-app launching mode that it is most useful. While the app is undoubtedly useful, it can take some time to configure the various profiles you might need to turn it into an essential utility, but it is time well spent – you just need to try to cater for every circumstance.

Used with Windows 7, Windows 7 App Launcher makes great use of thumbnail previews. Hover your mouse over the taskbar button and you can use the popup that appears to navigate through and activate any of the various profiles you have set up.

Verdict:

Slightly awkward to set up, Windows 7 App Launcher is nonetheless a useful tool which could save you time and effort

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:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
