Le Dimmer 1.0.0.4
Automatically dim your entire desktop - apart from the active window

Le Dimmer is a tiny portable tool with a single, simple task: it automatically dims everything on your desktop apart from the active window.

The program is very straightforward to use. Just run it, and the dimming starts right away; launch another application and that one will appear, while the other is dimmed. It's all very easy.

And if you decide you don't like the effect, or just don't need it any more, right-click Le Dimmer's system tray icon and select "Quit".

If you do need a little more control, though, there's a useful command line switch. Give the program a number between 0 and 255 ("LeDimmer.exe 150") and you're setting the "dim factor". 150 is the default; increase this to darken the rest of the screen even further, or cut the value to reduce the dimming effect.

Make sure you check the Le Dimmer Readme.txt file for more on this and other useful details.

Verdict:

A quick and easy way to help you focus on the task in hand

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.5

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.
