AutoVer
Back up files as soon as they're changed

AutoVer is a simple free backup tool which monitors the folders you specify, detects any new or modified files, and immediately backs them up to a local folder or FTP server.

The program can run as a straight backup, keep copies of every version of a file, or use your own custom versioning rate (save only one version every x hours, say).

Convenient archiving options can delete or zip up versions once they're older than a specified number of days.

A built-in file explorer makes it reasonably easy to find and restore files. Browse to the folder you need, click any file and you'll see a list of versions. These can be opened immediately with your usual applications, and there's also support for comparing file versions, although you'll need to set this up using an external application (it comes configured for WinMerge, but you must download and install this yourself).

If that's not enough, an option to run a custom program on every file change presents you with all kinds of additional possibilities. If you need to know an important application is running properly all the time, say, you could have AutoVer look for updates to a text log, and send an email alert (or maybe the entire file) if it changes.

Verdict:

AutoVer is a little basic in places, and has a few surprising omissions. There's no Search tool in the internal browser, for instance - you have to find and select files manually. But it's also easy to set up, very configurable, and on balance probably a good choice for a small-scale real-time versioning system.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.5

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.
