Cobian Backup (Gravity)
Use Cobian Backup (Gravity) 11 to keep all of your valuable files safe

Being put off by the cost of backup software can no longer be your excuse for not backing up your data thanks to the arrival of this immensely powerful backup tool. There is a strong focus on security in this particular utility, and support for advanced AES encryption greatly reduces the risk of your private data from being accessed by anyone that it shouldn’t be seen by.

The program can be installed in a number of ways that mean it is flexible enough to adapt to the way you want it to work. For example, you can choose to install it as a regular program that will be called upon whenever it is needed, or you may want to install it as an autostarting application for everyone or just the current user. The final option is to install it as a service and you can then indicate which user account – such as the administrator account – should be used to run it.

It’s amazing what you can get for nothing – this is a great backup tool that includes all of the advanced features you would expect to find in a commercial product. Scheduling is an important feature of any backup tool as it ensures that backups are kept up to date – and of course you have the option of creating incremental or differential backups – and Cobian Backup 11 includes more options that average in this particular area.

Remote management means that it is possible to take control of your backups from another computer, or use one machine to manage the backups for all of your home computers. The process of choosing which files should be included in a backup is amazingly flexible, and you can use options such as name and location, but also size, file attributes and much more to ensure that precisely what you need is included in a backup. The ability to create multiple backup task, each of which can be run on a different schedule means that Cobian Backup 11 can adapt to suit whatever type of data you have to work with and the different needs that arise from them.

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.
