Download Ninja
A fast and configurable download manager

Download Ninja is a feature-packed, easy-to-use download manager.

Getting started is as simple as copying a link to the clipboard. The program displays a pop-up alert in the system tray, and if you want to download the file, just click this, select "Quick Add", and it'll be added to Download Ninja's queue.

The program can grab regular http links, as well as video and audio files from all the main media sharing sites. It uses up to 10 simultaneous connections to improve performance. If your downloads are interrupted then they can be resumed later, and there's an option to convert downloaded media files into another format (AVI, FLV, MOV, MP3, MP4, MPG, WMA, WMV).

There's a lot of fine control over how the program works. You're able to add individual files to different download queues, for example, and customise when they're allowed to run, as well as limiting their bandwidth. Individual downloads may be added to the front of the queue, if they're high priority, and the program supports http authentication and using MD5 checksums to confirm a download is valid.

If it's too much hassle to keep leaving your browser, no problem - Download Ninja has its own Chrome and Firefox extensions.

Most surprising of all, there's no adware here, no registration, no marketing annoyances, not as much as a "Donate" button or an ad on the developer's site. As the developer says, "Download Ninja is 100% free to use on as many computers as you like".

Build 30 changes:
    •Added Dutch translation
    •Added Chinese (simplified) translation
    •Bug fixes

Verdict:

It has a few interface quirks, but overall Download Ninja is a quick and easy way to handle all your download needs.

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.
