Tweak-SSD Free 2.00
Get more ideas on optimizing your solid-state drive with this simple tool

Tweak-SSD Free is a straightforward application which can provide ideas on how to get more life (or performance) from your system's SSD.

The core of the program is an "SSD optimization wizard", which displays current SSD-related settings and allows you to change them in a click.

Tweak-SSD Free will recommend that you turn off Prefetch and Superfetch, for instance. It points out that the Windows Indexing Service isn't as necessary with fast SSDs, and says turning it off will save lots of needless disk writes. And it recommends turning off boot-time defragmentation for generally the same reasons.

You may not want to follow all the program's suggestions, though. Tweak-SSD would like you to stop Windows from maintaining the "last accessed" date and time for files, for instance, but some may find that genuinely useful.

And we're not entirely sure about the rationale behind every Tweak-SSE recommendation. A couple of options - "Keep system files in memory" and "Use a large system cache" - seem questionable, but because the program doesn't tell you which Registry tweaks these are actually making, it's hard to decide for sure whether they're worth applying.

Tweak-SSD is much like any other tweaking tool, then: some options will work, some are less certain, and you'll need some PC experience to figure out which are best for you.

Please note, the commercial version of the program also includes a TRIM Performance Optimization tool which aims to further improve your drive speed. You can upgrade from within the program for around $14.

What's new in 2.0.0?

- Lots of improvements
- New user interface
- Support for Windows 10

Verdict:

Tweak-SSD's simple wizard offers plenty of options which may help to improve your SSD's life or performance. Some are much better than others, though, so it helps if you've the Windows knowledge and experience to pick out the winners from the rest.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
