Washing Machine 2
Use Washing Machine 2 to delete the record programs store about their usage

As you surf the internet, your web browser keeps a record of the sites you visit and caches a great deal of information in cookies. Over time this data collection can accumulate to a point that these types of data storage start to occupy a lot of disk space, not only wasting valuable megabytes but also slowing down your Mac.

In addition to this, the cookies and browsing history that is retained can reveal a great deal of information about you and you may not want it to be accessible to other people who use your computer. Using Washing Machine you can quickly and easily wipe out bookmarks, caches, cookies, download history and browsing history.

While the program is designed primarily for use with a web browser, and it supports all popular browsers, there are other programs that track usage information about you. Washing Machine can also be used to cleanup your iTunes playlist update caches and much more.

Manually deleting the information that is stored about you is possible, but this can be a lengthy and taxing process. Washing Machine can do all of the hard work for you enabling you to cleanup certain items on a schedule and create Smart Cleanlists to wipe out information that meets certain criteria.

Verdict:

Whether you want to free up disk space or protect your privacy, Washing Machine is a great value automated tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.23

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 Version 2.17.2?

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
