DeskIntegrator 1.0.0.3
Launch programs from the desktop right-click menu

DeskIntegrator is a small tool which helps you to launch programs directly from your desktop right-click menu.

You can already place shortcuts on your desktop, of course, or pin them to the taskbar. But if you like to keep your desktop uncluttered then that might not be so appealing. So as an alternative, DeskIntegrator can add one or two of your most frequently-launched programs to the desktop context menu. And in future, launching them will be as easy as right-clicking the desktop and choosing whatever application you need.

The program is portable and straightforward to use. Launch it, enter the name of your application in the Title box, and the location of its executable in "Path". You can optionally choose where it should appear in the menu (top, middle or bottom), as well as adding a custom icon. But otherwise, just click Add/Modify and the item will be added immediately - right-click an empty part of the desktop to see it.

Changed your mind? Click the "Remove Menu" tab and you're able to delete any of your menu customisations. You can also remove the standard Windows entries ("Screen resolution", "Gadgets" and "Personalize" in Windows 7) and anything added by third-party applications, making DeskIntegrator also useful as a way to clean the context menu. Be careful, though - there's no "are you sure?" check, and if you delete a menu entry by mistake, DeskIntegrator has no way to bring it back.

Verdict:

An easy way to launch 3 or 4 favourite applications, without tying up valuable desktop or taskbar space

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
