Paragon HFS+ for Windows
Access Mac OS X HFS+ partitions from a Windows PC

If you've ever had to share an external drive between Windows and Mac OS systems then you'll know it can be, well, something of a challenge. Macs only come with the ability to read Windows NTFS partitions, and PCs can't see a Mac's HFS+ partition at all, so you'll probably end up cobbling together a messy FAT32-based compromise as a file system that both computers can read.

But there is another way. Install Paragon HFS+ for Windows and your PC will immediately gain the ability to both read and write Mac OS X partitions. The program comes in the form of a file system driver, so there's no extra interface to learn, no options to set. Just use the Windows Disk Management applet to mount an HFS+ partition (the Help file explains more if you need assistance) and you'll be able to see it in Explorer, drag and drop files there, or use the drive in applications, just like any other.

Please note that this is the commercial version of HFS+ for Windows. There's also a separate free edition. The commercial edition (available here as a trial), works with all editions of Windows from XP upwards, includes unprecendented high-speed HFS+ performance, full access to HFS+ partitions (read and write access) and much more.

Changelog

Verdict:

A simple way to give your PC full access to Mac OS X HFS+ partitions

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

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 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• 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+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
