Soft4Boost Update Checker
Quickly check your installed programs for available updates

Soft4Boost Update Checker is a lightweight tool which quickly checks your installed applications and lets you know if some of them have updates available.

The program is very simple. There's no component left running on your PC all the time, and no complex settings within the tool itself - all you have to do is launch it, and available updates will be displayed in a few seconds. If you'd like to take advantage of one, select it, click the "globe" and you'll be taken to the relevant home page. Otherwise, close Soft4Boost Update Checker and check back a week or two later.

How effective is this? Soft4Boost don't tell you which programs it supports, or even how many, which left us a little suspicious. But running it on a few test systems highlighted updates for Adobe AIR/ Flash/ Shockwave, FileZilla, Firefox, GIMP, IrfanView, Skype, SmartFTP, QuickTime, Macrium Reflect, VirtualBox and various Nero and Cyberlink programs: more than enough to be useful.

Verdict:

Soft4Boost Update Checker provides a quick and easy way to detect programs with available updates (but you'll still have to download and install them yourself)

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
