Advanced System Tweaker
Optimise and maintain your PC with this extensible tweaking tool

Advanced System Tweaker is a Windows tweaking tool with a couple of unusual extras.

At first glance the program doesn't look too impressive. It only comes with 37 Windows tweaks, for instance, covering the usual areas: memory optimisations, interface tweaks, networking improvements, Explorer speedups and so on.

And an inflexible interface means they're not too well presented. Most tweak descriptions are too long to view in their pane, for instance. You can't resize this or maximise the window, either, so have to scroll horizontally to read them.

But there are good points, too. Choose an option like "Memory Tweaks", say, and the program will explain that it can speed up your PC by telling Windows to keep more items in memory. Sounds good, but if you're an expert Windows user you'll still want more information.

And you can get it, too, just by clicking the Detailed Information bar, which (amongst other data) shows you exactly which Registry settings the tweak will apply. It's the same for every tweak here: the program is completely transparent about what it's doing.

But that's not all. Advanced System Tweaker also supports "Add Ons", which means you can extend its abilities by downloading more tweaks online (well, eventually, there's only one available as we write), or creating new ones of your own. So in just a few minutes you can extend the program with many of your own favourite Windows tweaks, which could make it far more useful.

Build 2.0.0 is a major new release with these changes:

- Major program change. In the previous versions you could only run 1 tweak at a time. Now you can select the tweaks you want first and then apply them all at once.
- Multiple code changes and some minor bug fixes.
- Added frame containers and lines to the add on creator for tweaks.

Verdict:

Advanced System Tweaker includes only a few Windows tweaks right now, and its interface isn't the best. The ability to customise it with your own tweaks could be very useful, though, so if you're an expert Windows user then the program may be worth checking out.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
