USSU Unlimited 2.0.5.6
Easily manage and update standard Windows programs

USSU Unlimited is an open source tool which can help you to install standard programs on a PC, then detect and download updates as they appear.

The program can manage 45 common applications. There are standard runtimes (Flash, Java, Adobe AIR), browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari), assorted security tools (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Avast, Avira, AVG), and plenty of desktop essentials (Adobe Reader, VLC Media Player, Google Earth, Paint.NET and more).

When you first launch USSU Unlimited, it displays the status of all these applications across various tabs. You'll be able to see whether a program is installed and up-to-date, installed but missing a patch, or not yet installed at all. If you'd like to enable management for a particular application then it's just a matter of clicking the "On" button, while clicking "Start" will download and install whatever you've selected.

The program doesn't always quite work as it should. We had installed Flash and 7-Zip on our test PC, for instance, but USSU Unlimited didn't spot that and claimed they were "not installed". This isn't a fatal problem - if an application isn't detected properly then you can just continue to manage it manually - but it's still a small concern.

For the most part, though, USSU Unlimited works very well, and if you need to manage several PCs then it could save you a lot of time.

Verdict:

It has one or two technical issues, but USSU Unlimited is still an above-average application updater, quickly checking for, downloading and installing a host of popular applications

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
