Kludget Engine 1.0
Run some MacOS Dashboard Widgets on your Windows desktop

The Kludget Engine is a tool that allows you to run MacOS Dashboard Widgets, Opera Widgets and other gadgets on your Windows desktop.

The program only comes with a clock and a calendar gadget, but in a few clicks you can be downloading others: simple games, translation tools, weather forecasters and more.

And of course you can download and run MacOS Dashboard Widgets, too, although support for these is variable. Any that require user input, for instance, are prone to fail in various odd ways.

For the most part, the widgets are easy to configure and control. The clock and calendar appear when you first run the Kludget Engine, for instance, and right-clicking them will display options to tweak their settings, create copies of the gadget, view the underlying gadget code (handy for web developers), and more.

These are all powered by the Kludgets engine, which has a permanent icon in your system tray. It only consumes a fairly minimal 14MB of RAM (private working set), though, so should be acceptable on just about any system.

Verdict:

It won't run all MacOS Dashboard widgets successfully, but then this is only version 1.0 of the Kludget Engine - we're sure it will improve over time

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.
