OpenWith Enhanced 1.15
Easily discover which programs can open any given file type

OpenWith Enhanced is an interesting Windows extension which helps you to find new applications that can handle a particular file type.

You might have downloaded a file, for instance, only to discover that none of your programs can open it. So what will? Right-click the file, select Open With or Open With > Choose Default Program, and the standard window will appear - with a few OpenWith Enhanced additions.

This time you won't only see applications on your system which can open the file type. After a few seconds, OpenWith Enhanced also displays the most popular applications selected by previous users of the program, which can also successfully open these files. And so when we right-clicked a PDF, for example, we didn't only see Adobe Reader; OpenWith Enhanced also displayed icons for Foxit Reader, SumatraPDF, Nitro PDF, Slim PDF Reader, and more. Hovering your mouse cursor over an icon tells you more, and double-clicking opens a browser window at the relevant program download page.

The OpenWith Enhanced choices are generally very good. Use "Open With" on an image, for instance, and you'll be presented with options including Photoshop, Irfanview, Picasa and XnView: there's something for everyone here.

And just in case that's not enough, OpenWith Enhanced provides a few other bonus options, making it easy to search the web for file types, remove this particular file association, or edit it's "Open With" menu options.

Verdict:

OpenWith Enhanced is a good idea, well implemented, and an easy way to discover how to open particular file types

Useful Program

Does what it says it'll do, and does it well.
Not only does it provide useful suggestions, it can be used to add Windows 7-style Open With to Windows XP systems as well.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
