Everything 1.2.1.371
Instantly locate the files you need

Windows Search, Google Desktop, Copernic - there are plenty of PC search tools around, and they all work in a similar way. An indexing engine crawls over every part of your hard drive, indexing all the words in each of your documents so you can find them later. It's a lengthy process that can tie up system resources, and is prone to error (if the index becomes corrupted then searches will no longer work).

Everything takes a different approach. The authors know that NTFS drives already maintain a list of the files they contain (it's in the MFT, or Master File Table), and so they use this to build their index. There's no crawler, no resource-hogging word-by-word indexing, the entire process takes just a few seconds.

And searching is even better. We tried looking for particular document names on an almost full 750GB drive with almost 430,000 files, and in every case it gave us the details just as soon as we'd finished typing them. This really is instant searching.

There are a couple of down sides. Everything only works with NTFS-based drives, so you can't use it to search most USB drives, or anything else with a FAT file system. And it only indexes file names, not their contents. Still, even if you keep your existing desktop search system, it's worth installing Everything as well just for its extra performance in tracking down lost files.

Verdict:

There's no faster way to locate files by name

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.
