VarieDrop
Resize and convert images by dragging and dropping

VarieDrop is an interesting tool which makes it easier to resize multiple images in a single operation.

The program works by allowing you to define up to four "drag and drop areas", each of which has its own output settings. These include format (BMP, PNG, JPEG, GIF, TIFF), JPEG quality, the target dimensions for resizing, a string which you'd like to append to the file name (_800x600, say), and an output folder. Once you've configured the program to suit your needs, just select your target images, drag and drop them onto that area, and they'll be converted and resized accordingly.

There's also a fifth "drag and drop area" which can optionally combine the results of the others. If you've set up the main areas to create 320x200, 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768 images, for example, you might also have this fifth area generate all four sizes in a single drag and drop.

VarieDrop doesn't have the power of the leading batch processing tools. You can't rotate your images, add watermarks, apply special effects or do anything else particularly advanced. The ability to resize or convert images by dragging and dropping is a significant plus, though, and if your batch processing needs are simple then the program could be worth a look.

Version 1.4.0.0 brings (Changelog):
    - Change the main window to the size variable window.
    - Change how to specify the reduction. (Width / height / length side / specify the short side / fixed size)
to add the selected option of reduction method. (Average pixel / bicubic / nearest use the functions of the neighbor / OS)
    - Add the edge enhancement options and font setting function.
    - Area setting button, options dialog change, other modifications, etc..

Verdict:

It's a little short on image processing power, but VarieDrop's drag-and-drop interface does make it very easy to batch resize and convert your photos.

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
