Razer Game Booster
Improve your PCs gaming performance

Razer Game Booster is a PC optimisation tool which uses several techniques to try and improve your gaming performance.

The program can apply a range of Windows tweaks, for example, without you having to go poking around in the Registry. We're not sure how useful most of these will be, but you can try them in a couple of clicks, and restore them just as easily later, so they're perhaps worth a try.

Game Booster includes a simple defrag tool which optimises only the game or folder you specify, hopefully improving speeds without the need to defrag your entire drive.

A "Drivers" tab highlights key gaming drivers - audio, graphics - and offers to help you upgrade them.

And the core "Boost" function tries to identify unnecessary background processes, then close them on demand, freeing up valuable system resources for your games (or any other heavy-duty programs you might be using).

All this is presented in a bizarrely dark interface, where some elements are so greyed out that you might miss them entirely. A distinct lack of help may also leave you confused. And if your PC is reasonably well optimised already, the program is unlikely to make any noticeable difference to your gaming speeds.

Still, Game Booster is free, so if you're desperate for a little extra PC performance then there's no harm in giving it a try.


Game Booster provides tools to free up a few system resources. This may not make much difference - it all depends on how well your system is optimised at the moment - but as the program is free, it's (just about) worth a try.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
