KDE Mover-Sizer 2.8
Easily move and resize desktop windows

KDE Mover-Sizer is an open source, portable tool which brings a common Linux desktop trick to Windows. Essentially, you hold down the Alt key, then left-click anywhere inside a window and drag to move it, right-click and drag to resize it.

This immediately speeds up your desktop window management as you don't have to move the mouse as much, or position it to specific areas (title bar, borders). And KDE Mover-Sizer simplifies your life even more by snapping windows to your desktop edges, so as long as you drop a window within a few pixels of the border, it'll automatically shift into place.

Holding down the Shift key looks like another neat trick, as it constrains movement to X or Y only (hold down Alt and Shift, left-click and drag and the window moves up/ down or left/ right only).

This is all very configurable. You can turn specific features on or off, use different hotkeys, switch the mouse buttons, disable the effect for particular application windows, or turn it on and off entirely with a couple of clicks.

There are a couple of bonus "Special Features", too: individual windows can be set as "always on top", and there's support for scrolling inactive windows with the mouse (move the mouse cursor over a window, spin the mouse wheel, and it'll scroll even if it isn't currently active).

All of this comes in a tiny portable package, under 1MB in size (and that's including the AutoHotKey source) and ready to run just about anywhere.

Verdict:

KDE Mover-Sizer brings simple time-saving window management tricks in a convenient and very configurable package.

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.
