MouseController 1.7.1.0
Record and replay your mouse actions

MouseController is a tiny portable tool (a 63KB executable) which can record your mouse movements and clicks, then replay them later.

Launching the program displays a basic but straightforward interface. By default pressing F9 starts to record your mouse actions, but you can change this to any other function key. Press your choice whenever you like to begin recording, then use your PC as normal, pressing the hotkey again to toggle recording off.

A "Start Playback" button tests your macro immediately, and worked well for us: the cursor moved around, repeating all our points and clicks without difficulty.

Your macro can be customised in various ways. MouseController can replay it at different speeds. There's an option to display the number of every click, as it happens, perhaps useful for demonstrations. You could automate some action by having MouseController repeat its macro every few seconds or minutes, or for a fixed number of times, and there's even an option to launch it from the command line via your own scripts.

This kind of mouse automation needs to be used with extreme care. MouseController doesn't know what it's clicking, and if your system changes before playback - there's a different screen resolution, other windows happen to be open - then anything could happen.

If you understand the risks and work to reduce them, though - perhaps maximising one program window and closing everything else - then MouseController works well enough, and may be able to help you automate some common tasks.

Verdict:

MouseController is a straightforward program for creating and replaying mouse macros, with far more functions and options than we'd expect for something of this size. Like all mouse recorders, it's not a very reliable way to automate PC tasks, but if you understand the risks then it may be able to help.

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
