Monitor the temperature of your processor with Real Temp

There are a number of things that can be dangerous for the sensitive components that make up your computer, and one of these is heat. Your processor in particular is especially sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, and it possible for permanent damage to be caused if heat levels rise too much. Real Temp is a free tool that provides at-a-glance information about your CPU temperature so you can protect your valuable hardware.

To make it easy to keep an eye on the temperature of your processor without the need to keep switching to a dedicated program window, Real Tempt adds a constantly updated icon to the notification area of the taskbar. This can be configured to display the current temperature, the maximum temperature and a number of other types of information.

Additional information can be accessed by displaying the main program window by double clicking the notification area icon , including CPU load and speed as well as benchmarks and testing options. While the information that is provided will be of use to almost any computer user, it will be of particular interest to anyone who has indulged in overclocking.

To save you from having to constantly look at the temperature readouts to ensure that nothing is going awry, it is possible to configure alarms that are triggered if heat levels reach a particular point. This option can be used to monitor not only your CPU temperature, but also the temperature of your GPU and you can opt to launch a specific program at this time to either alert you to the temperature or take evasive action.

Note that Real Temp is a portable app with no installer.

Verdict:

A great tool that could alert you to hardware issues before expensive damage is caused.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.17

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.

What's New in Version 2.16.17

• Introducing WhatsApp video calling. With free video calls, you can have face-to-face chats with your friends and family around the world. Data charges may apply. (requires iOS 8+)
• Search for the perfect animated GIF, right from within WhatsApp. Just tap Attach — Photo/Video Library and tap on the GIF search button on the bottom left to get started.
