SiSoftware Sandra Lite 2016
Learn more about your PC's hardware

SiSoft Sandra is a system information and diagnostic tool that can provide all kinds of useful information about your PCs hardware.

There's comprehensive information about many system components, for instance. And we mean "comprehensive". If you double-click the Processors module, say, you won't just get the model name and speed. It'll also tell you the number of cores, processor package, core voltage rating, minimum and maximum voltage, cache details, current temperature, and a whole lot more.

The program provides a range of benchmarks to test the speed of your hard drives, removable storage, file system, mobile device file transfer, processor speed, video rendering, memory bandwidth and network performance, amongst others. These checks are particularly useful if you're trying to optimise your system with hardware or software tweaks: run the benchmark before your speedup tweak, and afterwards, and you'll see exactly how much effect it's had.

And if, say, you've just overclocked your PC, then SiSoft Sandra can also run a burn-in test to confirm that everything is stable. If it passes then your PC is probably fine. If it fails, your PC crashes or locks up, then you'll know there's a problem somewhere, and can reduce your overclock accordingly.

There's plenty of features available here, then, but if you upgrade from the free Lite version then you'll gain many more: wireless networking benchmarks, 13 hardware and 14 software information modules, amongst others. Well worth a closer look.

This is the brand new "2016" edition. See the changelog for more info.


A very useful benchmarking and hardware information tool. If you need to know something about one of your PCs devices, then SiSoftware Sandra can probably help

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
