Shareaholic for Google Chrome
Sharing web links is a simple two-click process

You’ve come across a really useful website or found an interesting news story, and you want to quickly and easily share it via your social network, email or some other medium. You could of course open a new tab, log into your network and then copy and paste the URL, but that takes time. Some sites simplify matters by providing shortcut buttons to allow you to quickly share content, but it’s not guaranteed and even then your particular choice may not be covered.

Imagine, then, an extension for Chrome that basically gives you these shortcuts for any web page – it doesn’t matter where you are, clicking the appropriate button allows you to quickly and easily share the page in question with whichever network or person you want. Good, isn’t it? Now stop imagining: that extension exists, in the form of Shareaholic, which can also be downloaded for other major browsers too.

Installation is simple, and then you’re invited to click a button to set your favourite services from the dozens offered, broken into the following categories: social networking, instant messaging, URL shorteners, email, bookmarking, blogging, social news, tumblelogs and the final catch-all category, tools. Just click the ones you use and they’ll appear whenever you click the Shareaholic button in your toolbar.

You’ll need to set up a free account to get the most from the service – at present you can only directly connect with Facebook, but Twitter and Google Buzz are “coming soon”, and so long as you're already logged in through Chrome you'll find the sharing service works brilliantly.
 

Verdict:

Thanks to its support for even relatively obscure sites and networks, Shareaholic proves to be an incredibly useful tool if you spend a lot of time sharing links.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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 2.17.81

- Want to easily record long Voice Messages? When recording a Voice Message, just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down.
