VTchromizer 1.5
Scan files for malware before they're downloaded (Chrome)

VTchromizer is a Chrome add-on which integrates VirusTotal scanning options into the browser, enabling you to check any file or URL for malware with one or two clicks.

If you're unsure about a particular link then you can right-click it and select "Scan with VirusTotal". This immediately runs a regular VirusTotal URL check, displaying a detailed site safety report in just a few seconds.

A normally safe site might occasionally host a dangerous file, of course, but VTchromizer has that covered, too. Right-click the link to any file, select "Scan with VirusTotal", and in a moment you're reading the verdict - without having to download the file first.

VTchromizer also adds a button to Chrome's toolbar. Clicking this produces a pop-up search box where you can run VirusTotal searches on hashes, links, tags and more. There's a link to run a scan on the current site, and if you still have questions, another which takes you straight to the VirusTotal site.

Verdict:

VTchromizer's smart Chrome integration makes it easy to run VirusTotal file or URL scans on demand, while also taking the absolute minimum of screen real estate.

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.
