True Burner 2.5
True Burner is a rather frills-free tool for burning data discs.

If you’re looking for a simple, fuss-free way of burning discs then Windows’ own tools are usually sufficient for the task. However, they can be a little confusing – particularly with earlier versions of Windows – so there’s always room for a decent third-party tool that handles data burning with aplomb.

Glorylogic’s True Burner offers rather basic functionality compared to other tools, but that is part of its charm. Insert your blank disc (CD, DVD or Blu-ray) and fire up the program. Start by tweaking its settings: select your drive and target burning speed, make decisions about whether you’re continuing a multi-session disc or creating a single, finalised disc, and give your disc a title (choose carefully, as there’s no way to edit this without creating a new disc). Finally, choose a type – the standard UDF option is already pre-selected – and click OK.

From here it’s a case of building your data disc by selecting files and folders to include from other parts of your system. Files can be added via dialogue box, selected via an internal file manager, or dragged on to the True Burner window. From here you can rename files before they’re burned without affecting the original.

Once your disc is ready, click the Burn button and leave True Burner to its own devices. Sadly it’s all a little basic, and there are no confirmation dialogs so if you accidentally click the wrong button you can set off the burning process with no recourse to cancel before it creates the first track. Neither can you save your disk layouts, meaning if you quit the program you’ll have to start again from scratch.

Version 2.5 changes:
    - Added Windows 10 support.
    - Updated burning engine and user interface.
    - Added internal file manager, to add files and folders.
    - Improved burning performance and verification.
    - Resolved minor problems.

Verdict:

Another fuss-free tool from Glorylogic, but perhaps a little too simplistic for most people’s tastes.

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.
