Screen Sniper 2.1 (64-bit)
Easily take multiple screengrabs in quick succession

Screen Sniper is a small and simple tool which helps you to take multiple screengrabs in quick succession.

To get started, you first set up the program's key options: the folder where the grabs will be saved, the hotkey you want to use, and the format you'd prefer (BMP, GIF, PNG, TIFF, and JPEG at various quality settings are the options on offer).

After that, though, you just press PrtSc (or whatever you chose as the hotkey), and keep pressing it, and Screen Sniper will take a grab of the full screen, saving it to the defined folder in your preferred format, then repeat just as often as necessary.

One significant weakness here is the program can't grab the current window, it's the full desktop or nothing (so in that sense it's less powerful than Windows alone).

Another potentially annoying issue is the lack of control over file names. Screen Sniper will generate its own, using the date and a number - so your third image on 20th January 2013 might be called "20130120 - SS3.jpg", for instance.

And of course there are no editing or other post-processing options. What you do with the finished images is up to you.

Still, for all that, if you do need to take a lot of full screen grabs then Screen Sniper will do so for you with the absolute minimum of hassle. It's relatively lightweight, using only around 15MB RAM on our test PC. And it's free and safe to install, with no adware annoyances to worry about.

Verdict:

It's a little short on functionality, but if you just need to take a lot of full screen grabs then Screen Sniper may be able to help

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.
