puush 1.0.0.0
Easily share screen grabs, pictures and files

Puush is a small and simple application and web service which makes it easy to take and share screen grabs, as well as pictures and other files.

Before you can use the program you must create a puush account. It's nothing that you haven't done many times before with other services, though: give them an email address and password, click a "verify this address" link, choose a user name and you're done.

Launch puush, log in, and you're ready to begin sharing screen captures - which really is very quick and easy. To grab an image of your current window, for instance, you would just press Ctrl+Shift+2 (by default, anyway - all the hotkeys are user-configurable). No dialog appears, no options, there's nothing else to do: but in the background the program is taking the image and uploading it to your account. Within a few seconds an audio alert tells you that's complete, and puush will copy a short URL to your clipboard (of the form http://puu.sh/xxxxx) which you can use immediately to share the picture with others.

If grabbing an individual window doesn't suit your needs, you can also press hotkeys to capture a specific area, the entire desktop or the contents of your clipboard, as well as a specific file (they'll also each be uploaded to your account).

And if you're taking several grabs, then puush conveniently allows you to review some of them directly from its system tray menu. We found the program always listed our last five images and their time of capture; choosing one of these displayed an image thumbnail, and links to open it in our browser, copy its sharing link to the clipboard, or delete the image entirely.

The free edition of puush has one limitation: files will expire after they've not been accessed for 30 days. Paying for a Pro account lifts this to 6 months, and gets you Dropbox sync as well.

Verdict:

A fast, easy-to-use and extremely lightweight way to capture and share desktop images and other small files

Roger - thanks for your thoughts.

I quite agree that puush has significant limitations as a general screen grab tool. And if that was it did then a score of maybe 3 stars would perhaps have been more appropriate.

As I tried to say, though, I rated puush as I did more for its core functionality, sharing content with others. It's very easy to use, not restricted to just images, and is the most lightweight tool of its kind I've ever seen, while the limitations you're talking about don't affect the sharing side, so I think that 4.5 star score is well deserved overall.

It took me a bit of playing at each step to catch on, but once there it appears to be a quick way to pass along screenshots in certain circumstances. Have to experiment to see how many of the latter, such pasting into forums. Two things I don't like, and make it much less useful to me, are the lack of a Save As function for naming the file on my computer and the inability to choose the save format (settings give choice of either png, or png unless jpg is smaller). At minimum, that means I still have to go into my documents folder and edit the names and maybe change the format; i.e., a series of files named "ss (2012-12-21 at 11.13.51)" are useless to me. Online, it's also not clear to me what the gallery is and how to use it. Someone asked 9 months ago and still hasn't been answered. The help facility is basically nonexistent and, given the time since release and the fact that it wouldn't take much, I have to wonder if the authors even care. At this point, puush feels more like someone's personal project, a very good idea in need of some direction to reach prime time. All of which makes me wonder about Download Crew's giving it 4-1/2 stars.

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.
