RegistryUsage 1.0
Find out which Registry keys require the most space

Sysinternals RegistryUsage is a tiny command line tool which can tell you more about which of your Registry keys are consuming the most space.

Pass the program a specific path, for instance (like "ru HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Windows", although short paths - "HKLM" - are also supported), and it'll scan the Registry for a few moments, before reporting on the number of values and keys within that path, and their total size (in bytes).

Other switches allow you to define the level of subkey information you need, whether you want to see the size of each subkey, and so on.

If ru is producing way more information than you can examine in a command line window, there's also an option to format its output as CSV, with optional tab delimiters.

And as usual, just launching ru with no switches will display helpful information on the various options you have.

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.
