Full Throttle Override 1.00.422
Set your PC to maximum speed for specific programs only

Full Throttle Override is a tiny tool which will automatically set your PC to its "High Performance" plan for the programs you specify, restoring the previous power plan when those applications close. This means you're able to maximise your system speed for the applications which need it - games, say - while still keeping energy use (and battery drain) to a minimum.

Install the program and it adds an icon to your system tray. Right-click this, select "Add Program", and browse to the executable you'd like to accelerate. Later, when you launch this, Full Throttle Override will step in and change your power plan to "High Performance": easy.

Full Throttle Override also provides a few tweaks and options, if you need them. You can have it just increase the minimum CPU frequency to 100%, rather than change the power plan, for instance. You're also able to disable the program temporarily, and there are even multiple ways to customise its system tray icon, for some reason.

Exactly how useful all this will be is uncertain. You won't automatically see a speed boost just by changing power plans; the results will vary depending on your system, how it's set up and the applications you're using.

Still, if you would normally consider manually changing power plans anyway then Full Throttle Override is a simple way to automate the process. Give it a try.

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.
