Genie Timeline Home 2016
Protect your most valuable files with this exceptionally easy-to-use backup tool

Genie Timeline Home is a very easy-to-use backup tool which works almost entirely automatically.

When you first launch the program you'll have to select the destination drive for your backups (a network drive is just fine). You can then check boxes to confirm the type of file you'd like to back up (Office files, pictures, emails, music, documents and so on). And if you want to define specific files or folders to back up then you can do that, too.

Once this is all set up, though, there's no need to do anything else. The program runs when it's necessary (which means when your files have changed and your PC is idle). If it's interrupted, perhaps because your PC closes down or reboots then the program will resume later, just where it left off. And if you need to restore one or two files at some later date, or your entire backup, then the Restore tool makes it easy.

In addition to all this, Genie Timeline Home has been enhanced with plenty of new features.

Backup speeds are twice the speed of the previous version, for instance.

The program is smarter, less likely to store multiple copies of the same file, so reducing backup space requirements.

Explorer folder icons will have a marker to indicate which ones are backed up. And it's now quicker and easier to restore the files you need.

The Home edition allows you to run your backups on a schedule, and more frequently (every 30 minutes if you like, as opposed to every 8 hours for the Free edition). It supports Disaster Recovery, so you can restore your PC even if Windows won't boot. Backups can be compressed to reduce space, a Game/ Movie mode reduces alerts, and you're allowed to use it commercially.

What's new in 2016?

- Enhanced the encryption of backed up file names and applied the same 256-bit AES
- Improved backup breakdown display speeds and listing resource usage.
- Enhanced Interface for ease of use.
- Enhancing the database building.
- Fixes for Backup History and Recycle Bin. Faster loading and file listing.
- Fully compatible with Windows 8, 8.1 and 10.
- Under the hood improvements on backup speeds, file analysis algorithms and file queuing.

Verdict:

Simple backup tool that enables you to select the data you want to backup, backup to more than one location, then recover via a history timeline if required in the future

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.7

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 2.16.7?

• If you send a single emoji, it's displayed bigger
• Slide your finger up and down to zoom when recording videos in WhatsApp
• When tapping Edit at the top of the Chats tab, you can now to select multiple chats to quickly archive, delete, or mark as read. 
• Chats are now faster to open
