JogoBox 1 beta
Play thousands of games for free, no registration required

JogoBox is a simple tool which makes it easy to find and play thousands of games, all for free and with no registration required.

The JogoBox client neatly organises its offerings into eight categories - Adventure, Brain, Fighting, Girls, PC Games, Racing, Skills and Sports - and choosing any of these will display matching games. So clicking "Brain", for instance, revealed versions of Tetris, Mahjong, Bejeweled and assorted similar favourites.

But there's plenty more on offer here, including big names like Sid Meier's Civilization, Command and Conquer: Red Alert, Wing Commander, Warcraft, Transport Tycoon, DiscWorld, and the list goes on.

And while most of these are very very old indeed, JogoBox have done their best to make them playable on modern hardware by bundling them with DOSBox.

So if you decide you'd like to play Command and Conquer: Red Alert, for instance, you'll first have to wait for the more than 500MB download. But once it arrives, there are no installation hassles, no configuration concerns at all. The program simply opened in a window on our test PC, ready to play immediately.

JogoBox does offer more than just links to ancient game setup files, then, and is probably worth installing just to see what the service has to offer.

Verdict:

A quick and easy way to find some great (if occasionally rather old) games

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.7

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.

What's new in 2.16.7?

• If you send a single emoji, it's displayed bigger
• Slide your finger up and down to zoom when recording videos in WhatsApp
• When tapping Edit at the top of the Chats tab, you can now to select multiple chats to quickly archive, delete, or mark as read. 
• Chats are now faster to open
