Free PNG Optimizer 2.3
Quickly reduce the size of PNG files, without affecting image quality

Free PNG Optimizer is a lossless compression tool which can reduce the size of PNG files without affecting their image quality.

The program looks and feels very professional. There's a quality ribbon interface; you can add files, folders, folder trees or more in a second or two; there's great control over the output images, and it all feels very configurable.

And the results aren't bad, either. We tested the program with a sample of 50 PNG web graphics, grabbed from real web sites, and Free PNG Optimizer compressed them by an average of 32%. That's impressive for files which you'd expect to be already heavily optimized, and if they were on your website, could help make a real difference to its performance and your bandwidth use.

If there's a problem here, it's that Free PNG Optimizer has a lot of competition. PNGGauntlet, for instance, combines three PNG compression tools to produce even more effective results, and managed to shrink our test images by 42%. Other tools also compacted our test images by more than 40%.

The results these programs can produce will vary a great deal depending on the source graphics, though, so if PNGGauntlet and other compression tools haven't been effective for you then it's definitely worth giving Free PNG Optimizer a try.

Verdict:

A configurable and easy-to-use image compression tool

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.
