Shutter 3.3
Shut down your PC depending on a timer, battery level, low CPU usage, process...

Shutter is a portable tool which can automatically shut down (or reboot, log off and more) your PC when your chosen event occurs.

This can just be a simple timer. Set it to 10 minutes, say, select the "Shutdown" action, click Start and the program will begin to count down, turning your system off when it gets to zero.

That's just the start, though. You can also ask the program to activate at a specific time; when your CPU usage drops below a particular level; when a user hasn't been active for a given amount of time; when your battery level drops below a certain figure; when a window closes, or a process stops, and more.

Despite its name, Shutter isn't just about shutting down. You can alternatively have the program sleep or hibernate your system, turn off your monitor, mute or unmute the master volume, play an alarm, and more.

And the Options dialog reveals even more power. You can have the program run specific programs when the defined event occurs, for instance, play a sound, or close named windows. There are lots of ways to fine tune things, including the ability to restart an event when it's been triggered. You even get a web interface to control the program remotely.

Yet all of this comes in a portable program which requires less than 1MB disk space, is free for personal use (commercial users must contact the author for a licence), and supremely easy to operate: just choose and configure a shutdown event, select an action and you're ready to go.

Recent changes include:
* Dropdown menu of actions and events converted to a list menu;
* Enhanced "Close Window" action with methods: Close, Quit and Kill;
* Default method for "Close Window" action is changed from Quit to Close;
* Added option to autorun at windows logon for the current user;
 

Verdict:

Shutter is a powerful tool which provides all kinds of ways to automatically and conditionally shut down (or reboot, or sleep etc) your PC

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.
