Google Drive 1.26
Use this desktop tool to sync your Google Drive locally

It is a service that has been talked about for just about as long as anyone can remember, but now that Google Drive has finally been released to the public there are desktop and mobile apps that can be used to access the files that you have chosen to store in the cloud. If you are a Mac or PC user this is a dedicated synchronization tool that enables you to keep a local folder in sync with your online storage – add or remove a file in either location and the changes will be reflected in the other.

It is important that you take care when installing the software as this is the only opportunity you are given to choose which local folder should be used for synchronization – there is no way to change this after it has been set. The options available through the app, side from synching, are fairly limited, but it is the service itself – complete with its 5GB of online storage – that is most noteworthy.

The app does enable you to very quickly access your on- and offline files as well as giving you a way of quickly jumping to any files that have been shared with you. That’s really all there is to the Google Drive app. Some may describe it as underwhelming, but all of the hard work is already being done by Google Drive itself. What this app does provide you with is an easy way to interact with your files that neatly integrated into Explorer and Finder depending on which platform you’re using.

Android users will find that the existing Google Docs app automatically updates and transforms into Google Drive and in many respects there is little difference between the two. You can browse through the files you have already created and edited in Google Docs as well as creating documents from scratch or even uploading photos and other files from your phone or tablet. Anything that you have stored in your account can be shared with others, sent via email or other means or made available offline – almost every eventually is catered for.


A great tool that helps you to ensure that you always have access to the files you need

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
