Cyotek WebCopy 1.0.9.0
Copy websites to your hard drive for offline viewing

Cyotek WebCopy is a clever tool which copies all or part of a website to your hard drive for offline browsing.

Grabbing a small and simple site is easy: just enter a URL in the "Website" box, and choose the Copy option. Cyotek WebCopy downloads that page, and any links (within the same domain), then repeats the process until it's done. And then you're able to view the local copy of any page, and browse it as though you were online.

If your needs are more complex then WebCopy provides various options to help. You can tell the program to exclude particular sections of the site, for example. You're able to predefine user names and passwords, allowing WebCopy to access protected content. The program can set a custom user agent string, include or exclude particular MIME types from the copy process, and more.

Managing these more advanced tasks, and viewing the downloaded site afterwards, isn't as straightforward as it should be. The interface doesn't really guide you through the process; you have to browse the options yourself, and figure out what to do. PC or offline browsing novices will probably struggle to cope, at least with more advanced sites.

If you know what you're doing, though, there are a lot of unusual extras here. Cyotek WebCopy supports the use of regular expressions in many areas, for example. There's a built-in editor to help you create and test them. And once a site has been downloaded, WebCopy even generates a visual site map which you can customise and save as an image.

v1.0.9.0 changes:
  •Added an "Additional Hosts" page which lets you specify additional domains to crawl
  •You can now configure separate proxy server settings for each project

Verdict:

Cyotek WebCopy has a cluttered interface which can be confusing, especially if you're new to offline browsing. It does have some powerful options, though, and is completely free (no adware or other annoyances), so if you're interested in creating local copies of websites then it's worth trying.

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.
