Bear
Track the system resource use of all your running processes

Bear is a portable tool which displays the system resource use (in terms of GDI and User Objects) of all your running processes.

You could do something similar by using Process Explorer, of course, which is a far more sophisticated utility. Even Task Manager will give you a summary of the same information. But Bear may still be useful for in-depth monitoring as it provides many more details on your process resource use.

Examine a process like Explorer.exe, say, and you won't just see a figure for the number of GDI or User objects it owns. Bear actually displays a full breakdown, detailing its bitmaps, fonts, palettes, regions, brushes, and much more.

And that's not all. Double-click a particular process and you're able to review all of its resources, so for instance you can check the colour of a brush, or look at a particular bitmap.

Bear is plainly targeted at developers. Any knowledgeable Windows user could also benefit from the program, though, as it makes it easier to track down and understand resource leaks and similar problems. Grab a copy for your portable troubleshooting toolkit.

Version: 1.56 ·

New: Large picture preview added 

Verdict:

Bear is one of the more technical system monitoring tools around, but you don't need to understand everything it's doing to find the program useful, and it remains an interesting way to keep an eye on your resource use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.7

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.
