ScreenBlur
A very customisable Windows desktop lock screen

ScreenBlur is a free tool which can temporarily lock and hide the Windows desktop.

Launch the program and it adds an icon to your system tray. Right-click this, select "Lock", and an "Access Denied" message is displayed. Type the password you chose at installation and the desktop will reappear.

ScreenBlur can also lock your screen via a customisable hotkey, or when your computer has been idle for a specified period of time.

While there are similar tools around, ScreenBlur stands out for its many configuration options. You can have your applications hidden or minimised while the screen is locked, for example. The program can mute your sound. There's an option to avoid locking "on idle" if you're watching a full screen movie. If your computer has been locked for a specified length of time then you can have it sleep, hibernate or shut down. And you're able to change the interface colours, the fonts, even set a custom lock screen image.

1.3.0.27 brings (Changelog):

- options to sleep, log-off and restart are made available when user clicks the shut down button.
- minor improvements.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use and exceptionally configurable lock screen

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
