AutoHideMouseCursor
Hide the mouse cursor when your PC is idle

AutoHideMouseCursor is a tiny portable tool which automatically hides the mouse cursor when it hasn't  moved for a specified period of time. This might be helpful if, say, you're taking a number of screen grabs and would like the cursor to stay out of sight.

Launch the program and its single dialog appears, with a delay set to 5 seconds. If you don't touch the mouse, you'll see the timer bar drop down towards zero, at which point the mouse cursor disappears. Move your mouse to restore it.

If the 5 second delay isn't suitable for your needs, use the slider to adjust it. Possible values range from 2 to 100 seconds.

Once you're happy, close the AutoHideMouseCursor window and it will by default minimise to the system tray, and continue running.

Click the program icon in your system tray to restore it later. Check "Start with Windows" if you'd like it to be running all the time, or press Esc to close it down.

Version 2.18 brings:
    - Adjustments and improvements plus updating of the language files in Auto-Hide-Mouse-Cursor. 
    - New language in Auto-Hide-Mouse-Cursor: French 

Verdict:

If we're taking screen captures and need to get rid of the mouse cursor then we'll just move it off the screen; it's easy, and quicker than waiting for AutoHideMouseCursor's delay to kick in. If you do need to get rid of the mouse cursor automatically, though, this is a simple and effective way to make it happen.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

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.

What's new in 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+)
• Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+)
• A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
