MemInfo 3.33
Track RAM use from your system tray

MemInfo is a tiny tool which can help you find out more about how your PC RAM is being used.

At its simplest, the program can just leave an icon in your system tray to highlight your current RAM consumption (you might have it display the percentage used, for instance). This is clearly very basic, but it's still enough to be useful, as you'll soon notice if, say, your free RAM is dropping over time, or falls particularly when you're running a certain application.

Simply hovering your mouse cursor over the MemInfo icon will reveal more details, as the program displays the precise amount of RAM available and used, as well as details on your system's paging file.

If it looks like your free RAM is falling for some reason, right-click the icon and MemInfo will show you more statistics, including a list of the ten processes which are currently using the most memory. Clicking on any of these will display more details on the program, as well as giving you options to free up RAM from that process, or close it down entirely.

There's even a "memory defragmenter" option, which the authors claim may "speed up your computer by maximizing the available free memory", although for most people we suspect it probably won't make any difference at all.

MemInfo is highly configurable, too, so if you don't like some aspect of the program, just right-click its system tray icon, click Settings and start browsing: there's probably a tweak there which will allow you to change things.

And while MemInfo will of course use some RAM itself, fortunately it's extremely lightweight. On our test PC it consumed less than 1MB RAM (and often much less), so should run happily in the background just about anywhere.

Version 3.32 has the following changes:

    - Check for new version is now automatic as soon as the About box is shown
    - Added a new option to double click tray icon: Show Windows Shutdown Dialog
    - Added an option to show the process name instead of the module (eg: "mspaint.exe" or "Paint")
    - Fixed: Warning on high memory usage will only warn again after 5 minutes (to avoid consecutive Warnings)
    - Support for Windows 8.1
    - Minor bug fixes


Normally Windows manages your RAM just fine on its own, but if you're currently having problems then MemInfo may be able to help you find out more about your system's memory use

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
