JPEG & PNG Stripper 1.5.7.70
Quickly strip metadata from JPGs and PNGs

JPEG & PNG Stripper is a tiny portable tool which strips the metadata - tags, thumbnails, whatever it might be - from JPG and PNG images. This can be an easy way to reduce file size (if only by a few bytes) without affecting image quality.

The program is built for speed and ease of use. Launch JPEG & PNG Stripper and its tiny window will by default appear above everything else. Drag and drop your images onto the program and any metadata will immediately be removed, while a report explains how much space you've saved (if any). And that's it.

One limitation of this approach is that you can't see the tags any images contain, so you've no idea what you're deleting.

It's also a pity that JPEG & PNG Stripper can't save separate copies of its processed files, and instead always overwrites the originals (unless you check the "Preview Only" box, anyway). If you're concerned with this then be sure to always work with copies of your source images.

The program has an "Add to Explorer" checkbox, which we expected to add a right-click Explorer menu for JPEGs and PNGs. That would have been a good idea, except, well, it didn't work.

JPEG & PNG Stripper also has a command line interface, though, and that's more successful. Point the program at a folder and you can have it process any images it contains in just a few seconds.

Verdict:

JPEG & PNG Stripper is fast and very easy to use. It will only save a few bytes on most images, though - if that - and always overwrites your original files, so always work with copies until you're sure it's doing what you need.

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
