BatchPurifier 5.0.2
Remove metadata from JPEGs and more

BatchPurifier is a straightforward tool which removes hidden metadata from your files. The full commercial version works with 24 file types (Office, PDFs, image, music and video), but the LITE build is strictly JPEG-only.

The program gives you a fair amount of control over what's removed. For JPEGs, the options are EXIF (including thumbnail and geotag); Photoshop image resources (including IPTC); XMP; Comments; ICC Profile; Adobe App14 tag;JFIF header; "Other Hidden Data". There are basic descriptions of each data type to help you decide, and you can select some or all of them with a click.

Once you've decided what you want to do, click Next, choose your output folder and click Finish. BatchPurifier then rewrites each file, stripping out your chosen metadata, usually in just a few seconds.

The program misses an opportunity in its final report, which has none of the details you need. We were expecting to see the number of bytes saved, perhaps the elements stripped from each file, but all we got was a simple list of the "files successfully purified".

BatchPurifier LITE performs its core task well, though, quickly removing your chosen metadata. And if you'd like to remove metadata from other file types then the full version seems reasonable priced at $19 for a lifetime licence.

Verdict:

A quick and easy way to strip tags, thumbnails and other hidden data from your JPEGs

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.
