VMware Fusion 10
Run Windows or another virtual operating system on your Mac

If you’re a PC user but fancy the idea of using a Mac, you can get the best of both worlds through virtualisation. Only a few years ago, when the Mac used to use a PowerPC chip, using Windows on a Mac was unbearable. Now Apple have moved the Mac to the Intel CPU, which is the same hardware technology used by your PC, you can install Windows on your Mac desktop, without losing too much speed when running both operating systems on the same machine.

VMware Fusion for Mac is a superb tool that you can use to run a virtual operating system on your Mac. This includes Windows XP, Vista or even the latest Windows 7. You can also run a Linux-based operating system, such as Ubuntu, which is ideal for testing the new operating system without installing properly, on your hard drive. Indeed, if you have a fast enough Mac with a large amount of system memory, you can use more than one operating system at any one point in time.

Why would you want to use a virtual operating system on your Mac? For various reasons, which may include Windows-only applications you can’t get for your Mac, favourite Windows tools that you can use more productively on your PC and for testing new software without it affecting your computer.

VMware Fusion has a number of superb features which means you are able to share printers across a virtual operating system, quickly and easily share files and, best of all, use your PC in a Unity mode, which means that the PC application opens on your Mac desktop, as if it was a Mac application.

Note that the download here requires you to be an authorised VMware account holder. You will need to login at vmware.com to download.

The latest Fusion 10 is a major upgrade:

- Fusion REST API. A Swagger-based RESTful API enables users to remotely and programmatically manage virtual machines running on VMware Fusion 10 and integrate with other automation tools in a continuous development and testing pipeline.
- Updated Networking Controls. You can now simulate packet loss and latency using software controls on Guest virtual NICs, control NAT port forwarding rules from the UI and rename virtual networks for improved organization.
- Enhanced User Interface. Get more access to information and quicker access to controls with Fusion 10. The more modern look and feel enables you to see IP and MAC address info in the VM Library Window, easily copy and paste and set guest display resolution from the View menu, and leverage added TouchBar support for quick controls at your fingertips.
- And Much More. Fusion 10 is our biggest release to date. We’ve fixed bugs, added support for the latest operating systems, support for Windows 10 VBS features in guests, support for UEFI Secure Boot, added more controls for remote ESXi Hosts and more.

Verdict:

Superb must-have tool for anyone who wants to test and run Windows or another operating system on your Mac

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
