Types
Manage program associations, icons, context menu entries and more

Types is a free tool that aims to help you manage program associations, icons, context menus and other Windows file type information.

In theory, the program appears straightforward. You can browse a list of extensions and file types, or filter this with your chosen text; and double-clicking a particular type then allows you to edit its classed name, linked class, perceived type, actions, icon and some other more unusual details (for example, it's possible to have Explorer show the extension for a particular file type, even if by default it doesn't show extensions for anything else).

In practice, though, Types proved a little more complicated.

The program crashed when first run on our test system, for instance, although it then continued successfully. Icons weren't always displayed as they should be; interface oddities meant that we couldn't select the "All types" class; and if you accidentally click the "Delete" button, don't expect an "are you sure?" dialog to save you. There isn't one - your currently selected file type will be deleted right away.

Verdict:

There could be a useful file type manager in here somewhere, but currently Types is too unreliable to recommend

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.81

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 2.18.81

- You can now use Siri to send messages to WhatsApp groups.
- Group voice and video calls are now available. When you're in a call, tap the “Add Participant” icon. Group calls support up to 4 total participants.
