Create custom bootable USB drives

YUMI is a portable free tool for creating multiboot USB drives. It's able to take a number of bootable images - Linux distros, antivirus, partition managers, recovery tools, forensics, more - and combine them onto a single drive. Boot from this and a menu allows you to choose the tool you need.

Setting this up starts by downloading your first boot image. Look for it in the Distribution list (options include Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, AVG/ AVIRA/ COMODO/ F-Secure/ Kaspersky rescue discs, Ultimate Boot CD, Partition Wizard and many more), follow the link to visit the home page, or check "Download Link" to download the ISO right away.

Once you have the image, point YUMI at your destination USB drive, click "Create", and it'll quickly be configured.

Now just repeat the process to select further images. YUMI adds them to your drive, rather than replacing what was there before, and you'll soon have your own custom rescue disc.

Better still, this doesn't mess up your drive with odd partition layouts or anything similar. For the most part, everything is tucked away in just one or two folders, and, if you've any space left, you can still use it to store data as required.

Version (changelog):
    - Remove distributions that are no longer being developed. Fix broken links.


YUMI provides a quick and easy way to build multiboot USBs

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
