Does the world really need yet another cloud backup storage solution? The answer is yes when you look more closely at what MEGA, the brainchild of Kim Dotcom, has to offer. First, there’s the offer of 50GB free storage space (capped to 10GB bandwidth a month), with paid-for plans offering 500GB/1TB monthly bandwidth from $11 a month or $120 a year.

Second, MEGA promises really tight security: 2048-bit RSA encryption no less. Your password acts as the master encryption key, so if it's strong enough it should be impervious even to brute-force attacks. Be wary, however: there are no password-reset options, so if you forget it, any data not shared with others will be lost.

Having 50GB to hand is very useful, but to make the most of it you’ll want a client that can make uploading and syncing data between your machines effortless. This is that client.

Once installed, you’re able to either sync the entire contents of your MEGA drive or just specific folders within it to your computer. These are housed inside a MEGA folder that’s created inside your personal Documents folder – if this doesn't suit, take a trip to the Sync tab of the program's settings to delete the default choice and add your choice of location instead. A bit fiddly, but at least it can be done.

Any data already in your cloud account will then download to your PC, while any files or folders copied or updated into this folder will upload in turn back to your MEGA account online. Open the folder in Windows Explorer and you’ll see tiny progress icons – red cross, blue sync and green tick – indicating if the files are in sync with your online storage or not.

Click the program’s system tray icon for a more comprehensive view of what’s going on behind the scenes: what’s being synced, recently synced items and access to the all-important settings. From here you can perform a number of tweaks, and even optimise the client’s bandwidth so that uploading doesn’t cripple your internet connection (in most cases, the automatic setting should be fine).

Mobile apps are already available for iOS and Android, while Mac and Linux clients are promised shortly. Also available are extensions for Chrome and Firefox.


A capable tool for accessing and syncing your MEGA files on your computer.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
