AMP WinOFF 5.01
Schedule a PC shutdown with AMP WinOFF

Leaving your PC on unnecessarily is a bad idea, and not just for environmental reasons - it's also a waste of money. Just four hours of pointless idling a day could add £40 to your annual electricity bill, perhaps more for a high-end system. We'd hazard a guess that you can think of better ways to spend the cash.

Shutting down your PC when it's no longer required really does pay, then, and AMP WinOFF provides plenty of tools to help. In a few clicks you can schedule your system to shut down at a specific time and date, or you can ask the program to turn your PC off in a specified number of minutes.

If you've left your PC running some complicated task - video encoding, say - then of course you may not know exactly how long this is going to take. But AMP WinOFF can help here, too, by shutting down your PC when the CPU is idle.

And while by default the program will power down your computer, it also provides full access to all other Windows shut down modes. So you might for example schedule an unattended system to restart every day, to avoid problems with memory leaks. It's also able to suspend or hibernate your PC, lock it, and more.

Version 5.0.1
 ◾Fixed: The list of network adapters in Windows Vista/7 included also disabled adapters.
 ◾Fixed: The program failed sometimes to detect the list of network adapters, especially in Vista/7.
 ◾Fixed: In certain situations the program failed to save the settings for all users in Vista/7.
 ◾Fixed: When using the same settings for all users in Vista/7 the program displayed an User Account Control confirmation before activating the shut down planning, even if the settings wasn't changed.
 ◾Fixed: The program didn't saved the shut down time AM/PM value properly.

Verdict:

A very flexible way to schedule when and how your PC should be shut down

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.7

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 2.16.7?

• If you send a single emoji, it's displayed bigger
• Slide your finger up and down to zoom when recording videos in WhatsApp
• When tapping Edit at the top of the Chats tab, you can now to select multiple chats to quickly archive, delete, or mark as read.
