Chromebook Recovery Utility
Create a bootable USB key to recover your Chromebook

Chromebook Recovery Utility is a free Chrome app for building Chromebook recovery media (USB key or SD card).

On launch, the app asks for the model of the Chromebook to be recovered. Choose this carefully: make a mistake and the app will download the wrong recovery image.

If you have an image file already, click the Gear icon, select "Use local image" and navigate to the file.

Insert your USB key or SD card, if you haven't done so already, and click Continue.

Follow the on-screen instructions, which mostly means "wait". Recovery images are large, your storage device is relatively slow, and it could take up to 20-30 minutes for the process to be finished.

When you're done, boot the Chromebook from your storage device and follow the instructions.

If you need more help, the official Google support page is here.

Verdict:

Chromebook Recovery Utility is an easy-to-use way to try and reset your broken device. It won't always be able to help, but is still worth a try.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.20

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.
