Free File Wiper
Securely delete files you no longer need with Free File Wiper

Free File Wiper is a simple tool which helps you securely delete confidential files so that they can't be recovered later.

You've probably seen plenty of programs which promise the same, but Free File Wiper is unusually easy to use. There's no bulky interface to explore, at least not initially, just a trash can icon which floats on your desktop; drag and drop files onto this and they'll be despatched forever. (And this really is "forever", there's no chance of recovery here, so be very careful when choosing the files to destroy.)

If you need more control, right-click the icon for additional options. The most useful is the "Wipe Method", which defines exactly how your files will be destroyed. Methods range from deleting and overwriting with zeros, to deleting and overwriting seven times with a combination of zeroes, ones and random characters. The process is fairly swift, although the greater the number of overwrites, the longer things take.

Please note, the program will by default install browser toolbars. Pay special attention during the setup process and click "Skip" or clear the checkboxes next to anything you don't want.

Version 1.91:

- fixed exe version number

Verdict:

Free File Wiper offers peace of mind when it comes to deleting sensitive files, and using it could hardly be simpler.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.41

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 2.18.41

• You can now see recent status updates in the WhatsApp widget in your iPhone's Today View.
• Voice messages will now continue to play if you switch to another app or turn your screen off.
