VirtualDVD
Quickly mount most images files as a virtual CD, DVD or Blu-ray

VirtualDVD gives easy access to CD, DVD or Blu-ray images by mounting them as virtual drives, which means you'll no longer have to burn them to discs.

After a simple installation VirtualDVD adds a single virtual disc drive to Explorer. Right-click its system tray icon, select Virtual Devices, choose that drive then "Mount Image" and you'll be prompted for your disc image. The program supports plenty of formats, including CloneCD (*.ccd), CDRWin (*.bin), Cue Sheets (*.cue), CDImage (*.img), ISO (*.iso), BlindRead (*.bwt), BlindWrite (*.b5t; *.b6t), Alcohol 120% Image (*.mds;*.mdf), Disc Juggler (*.cdi), Instant CD/DVD (*.pdi), Compressed ISO (*.isz), Nero (*.nrg), CloneDVD (*.dvd) and CDSpace6 (*.LCD).

Once mounted, the disc becomes available in Explorer just as though it was a physical drive. And this can be customised to a degree via the usual Windows tools (you can change its region, drive letter and so on).

You're also able to add further virtual drives, if necessary. Right-click the system tray icon, select Preferences, and set "Count" to the number of devices you need (up to a maximum of 24).

One issue we noticed immediately is the almost total lack of documentation. There's nothing provided with the program itself, and the online help is just a list of features.

Still, to be fair VirtualDVD is so simple that you probably won't need any assistance - it's just a quick and easy tool which will give you speedy access to drive images.

Version 6.5 brings, apparently:
* MDS file support(require a reboot)
* Stabilization of the internal function

Verdict:

A basic but easy-to-use virtual drive with support for mounting a wide range of image formats

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
