WinCDEmu 4.0
Mount or create disc images at a click from Windows Explorer

WinCDEmu is a free tool which allows you to mount ISO, CUE, NRG, MDS/MDF, CCD and IMG disc images directly from Windows Explorer.

In theory, all you have to do is double-click the file in Explorer - or right-click it, and choose "Select drive letter & mount" - and WinCDEmu should automatically allocate it a drive letter. Accept this, or choose a new letter if you prefer, click OK and the image will become available from Explorer.

In practice, though, life isn't always quite so straightforward. When we first installed WinCDEmu, for instance, double-clicking ISO images had no effect at all, and there was no "Select drive letter & mount" context menu option.

Fortunately re-running the installation program and adjusting its settings restored normal operations, and we successfully mounted a series of images.

And as a bonus, WinCDEmu can also create an ISO image from any optical disc. Just right-click the drive in Explorer, select "Create ISO image" and give it whatever file name you'd like to use.

Verdict:

We had some issues getting WinCDEmu to work initially, but after a reinstall everything was fine, and the program's wide file format support could make it particularly useful.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
