Tonido Sync in Windows
Install, set up and go – Tonido Sync is simple and effective.

While cloud storage has revolutionised the way we back up, sync and share our data there are plenty of drawbacks to consider. First, you’re entrusting your data to a third party on the cloud. Second, you can easily find yourself paying a large sum for the privilege. And three, data has to be uploaded and then downloaded, which can play havoc with your bandwidth allowance as well as slow your connection down.

These problems have led to the idea of a "personal cloud" where data is kept on a local drive in your own home or workplace, then accessed over the internet only when required. An increasing number of Network Attached Storage drives offer this functionality, including the Tonido Plug, a small NAS/server that can be accessed over the internet or via Wi-Fi on the road.

For those who’d rather keep their data on a single computer rather than invest in yet another device, Tonido also offers this software solution. First you’ll need to install Tonido Desktop, the file server that transforms your entire Mac or PC's storage into your own personal cloud.

If you want to sync data between computers using your personal cloud, then after you’ve set up the server on your main computer, install this client on each of your other computers – they don’t need to be on the same network to connect.

Once installed, simply log in with your Tonido account credentials, and you’re good to go: the folder will be synced from your desktop and any changes at either end automatically updated across all the sync folders you’ve set up.

By default, the sync folder is placed in your Documents folder – you can easily change this by right-clicking the program’s Taskbar Notification Area or menu bar icon and choosing Change Location.

Free accounts are limited in that your sync folder can only contain 2GB of data; upgrade to the Pro or Biz packages – the former lets you sync up to 100GB for $29 annually.


Simple to set up and use, the only drawback is the parsimonious amount of free sync storage allowed.

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
