ASCOOS Web Server 1.6.6.689
An Apache/ MySQL/ PHP bundle for web developers

ASCOOS Web Server is a suite of tools and applications aimed at web developers.

Unzipping the ASCOOS download file gets you the following.

NGINX Web Server; Apache Web Server; OpenSSL; Filezilla FTP Server; three PHP Versions; Perl; three MySQL Database versions; PostgreSQL Database; MongoDB Database; Multiple SQLite Versions; phpMyAdmin; phpPgAdmin; rockMongo; phpMemcachedAdmin, eXtplorer and more.

There's no further installation required. As long as the AlexServ folder is in your root directory, then you can run \AlexServe\aws\aws.exe, start MySQL, Apache and whatever else you need, and begin managing your files.

This isn't particularly unusual, but ASCOOS Web Server stands out because it bundles and allows you to test your sites with different version of PHP and MySQL. Just choose your preferred active version (or switch to another) with a click.

Verdict:

The ASCOOS Control Panel is a little clunky, and the basic, YouTube-only documentation isn't ideal, either. It only takes a few moments to master, though, and ASCOOS Web Server's support for multiple PHP and MySQL versions is a real plus.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
