Boot Camp Support Software 5
Download the very latest drivers required to use Windows, natively, on your Mac

It's easy to become envious of Apple's recent MacBook Pro's, particularly since the launch of the retina range, which brought a crystal-clear screen resolution to OS X users. Snag is, there are still plenty of users who either do not want to use OS X or, more likely, are forced to use a Windows laptop for their work.

One solution is to use a virtual emulator, such as Parallels for VMware Fusion. A virtualisation tool enables to use Windows on top of of OS X, ideal for testing, running lightweight applications and for sharing files between the two operating systems. What a virtualised version of Windows doesn't do, is enable you to play the most demanding games or applications. For this, you need to run Windows in native mode.

Apple released Boot Camp for OS X users, designed to allow you to run Windows on your Mac, natively. With Boot Camp, you can install Windows and dual-boot, choosing to run either Windows or OS X, when you start your Mac. If you run Windows natively, you are using the full power of your Mac, with dedicated drivers. Ideal for running applications at full speed.

Boot Camp 5 is the brand new version with full support for running Windows 8 (or Windows 7) on your Mac. Note that this version won't support XP or Vista.

It's important to point out that Boot Camp 5 is part of Mac OS X. The download here is the Boot Camp 5 Support Software, which includes the latest drivers. You'll need to extract the downloaded file contents to a USB drive. Follow the install instructions for more information.


Boot Camp is a framework that enables you to run Windows natively on your Mac. Make sure you have the latest drivers so you can install and support Windows 8.

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.
