SimpleProgramDebugger
A tiny, portable (and very basic) debugger

SimpleProgramDebugger is a tiny tool which can display the main debugging events in a process: Load DLL, Unload DLL, Create Thread, Create Process, Exit Thread, Exit Process, Exception and Debug String.

As usual with a debugger, you're able to attach to a running process, or start a new process in debugging mode. You can't then control anything, so it's just a matter of watching as debugging events listed as they happen: event time, type, thread ID, memory address, file name and "More Information". Detach from the process when you're done, and the report can be saved as a TXT, CSV, XML or HTML file.

If you think this sounds highly technical, then you're right. Debuggers are used by developers for low-level analysis and troubleshooting, and most of the details here will be utterly meaningless to anyone else (even Windows and PC experts).

Still, SimpleProgramDebugger can occasionally provide interesting information about a program. We used it to launch our Firefox installation, for example, and found previously unseen "debug string" messages including "Failed to load native module at path...", "Could not read chrome manifest 'file@///" and "...could not create service for entry...". Are these messages normal? We've no idea, but if Firefox were misbehaving then this is just the type of information which might point us in the right direction.

Version 1.03:
    ◦Fixed bug: SimpleProgramDebugger failed to remember the last size/position of the main window if it was not located in the primary monitor.
    ◦Added 'Run As Administrator' option (Ctrl+F11)

Verdict:

It's as basic as its name suggests, but SimpleProgramDebugger can still occasionally be a helpful troubleshooting tool for technical users.

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
