Unpack multiple archive files with ease

ExtractNow is a simple tool, that does exactly what its name suggests: extract the contents of archive files. It can't create them so won't replace your existing archive program, this is all about extraction.

So why bother with the program, then? Its wide file format support is one reason. With ExtractNow installed you'll be able to extract the contents of all these archive types: zip (+jar,xpi), bzip2 (+bz2,tbz2,tbz), rar, arj, z, lzh (+lha), 7z, cab, nsis, lzma, lzma86, xz (+txz), ppmd, udf, xar, mub, hfs, dmg, compound (+msi,doc,xls,ppt), wim (+swm), iso, chm (+chm,chi,chq,chw,hxs,hxi,hxr,hxq,hxw,lit), split (+001), rpm, deb, cpio, tar, gzip (+gz,gzip,tgz,tpz), mslz, flv, swf, ntfs (+ntfs,img), fat (+fat,img), mbr, vhd, pe, elf, apm, macho, ace and sit.

ExtractNow is also highly configurable. You can define a folder where all archives should be extracted, for instance. Then tell the program to work automatically, so files are extracted at a drag and drop. And finally, you might set up what happens post-extraction, perhaps deleting the archive files and opening Explorer at the folder where you've extract their contents.

And best of all, ExtractNow is fast. Drag and drop in as many archives as you like, click Extract and the program will immediately extract their contents for you.

Build brings these changes/fixes:

- Added support for RAR5 archives
- Added icon to group context menu item
- Added polish translation from tomasz gasior
- Fixed bug in progress on certain archives
- Fixed filename bug with xz archives


A time-saving tool for anyone who regularly works with archive files

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
