DesktopSnowOK
Give your desktop a touch of winter magic in seconds

DesktopSnowOK is a tiny tool which can add soft, fluttering snowflakes to your desktop in a click.

Despite being only a 78KB executable, DesktopSnowOK is highly configurable. There are twelve flake styles to choose from, for instance, covering everything from tiny orbs to chunky full-sized flakes. And a host of other options (soccer balls, base balls, tennis balls and more) ensure the program will be useful - if that word really applies here - all year long.

You can also choose the number of flakes you'd like on screen at any one time, their transparency, and how quickly they should fall.

And while DesktopSnowOK isn't a Windows screen saver, you can produce a similar result by setting "Deactivation" to "If pressing a key or mouse events". Leave your PC for a while and the snow will start to fall; come back, start typing or moving the mouse and the flakes will disappear again.

If you're thinking this isn't exactly the most useful program ever, then you've probably got a point. DesktopSnowOK is portable, though, so perfect if, say, you'd simply like to add a little temporary Christmas cheer to your desktop. Just download it, run the executable to apply its wintry effects, and delete the file when and if you've had enough.

What's new in 3.33?

- Bug-Fix: When recognizing the standard language (default user language).
- Improvements and adjustments as well as upgrade of the language files

Verdict:

A surprisingly configurable and fun little winter addition to anyone's desktop

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
