Skype Launcher
Use Skype Launcher to sign into multiple Skype accounts

Skype is a great tool for communication and it is a service that is used by both individuals and companies to make it easier to keep in touch. Many people have more than one Skype account – it makes sense to keep business and personal contacts separate – and it can be pain having to constantly switch between these accounts manually. Skype Launcher is a free tool that can help you to overcome this problem

The program is compatible with all versions of Windows from XP upwards, including 32- and 64-bit editions, and you can be working with Skype 3.x all the way up to 5.5. It enables you to sign into a number of Skype accounts at the same time and any accounts you have already configured in Skype should be automatically detected so you do not need to manually re-enter your usernames and passwords.

The program can be configured to start automatically with Windows, and you can place a slight delay on sign-ins to help avoid any potential problems. Used at its most basic, you may have little reason to investigate the app’s configuration screen, but if you do venture this way you’ll find s series of options that are poorly explained and all housed in an interface that is far from attractive.

Take care during the installation of Skype Launcher as there is bundled browser toolbar in the form of DealBulldog- just take care to select the Custom installation option so this can be unchecked. When you’ve spent the time getting the app set up to your liking, you can use the USB Export option to transfer them to other computers you may use and you can even use portable versions.

Verdict:

A handy, if unattractive, tool for anyone battling with more than one Skype account

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
