UltraDefrag 6.1.0
Quickly defragment your hard drive

The more you use your PC, the more your files will become fragmented, split into multiple chunks and scattered all over your hard drive. Everything still works, just slowly, as your drive heads must do extra work to access the same information.

Defragmenting your hard drive occasionally is a very good idea, then, and UltraDefrag has plenty of options to deliver the results you need. It can defragment a single file or folder, for instance (useful if you just want to boost the speed of one application with the minimum of hassle). You can manually defragment a drive whenever you've a little time to spare, set up a boot-time defrag to rearrange system files that would otherwise be locked, and even schedule a defrag to run when you're not around.

There's plenty of power here, then. The program is very light on system resources, performance seems generally very good, and the cluster map interface gives you something to watch while UltraDefrag does its work. Exploring the Settings dialog reveals one unexpected quirk, though - most of the buttons open Notepad with a copy of a configuration file, which you must change manually. It's a less than user-friendly option that will baffle some, and leave even experts with a chance of accidentally altering the wrong setting.

UltraDefrag 6.1.0 is a minor upgrade, with these new features:

- documentation was cleaned up
- configuration files were superseded by a single options.lua file
- few minor bugs were fixed

Verdict:

Fast, powerful defrag tool, but not built for ease of use.

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
