Free RAR Extract Frog
Decompress RAR files with Free RAR Extract Frog

While the Zip format is probably still the most commonly used compression format in existence, there are times when other archive types are more appropriate. The advanced compression and extra options offered by the RAR format means that it has become increasingly popular in recent years, particularly when it comes to delivering downloads. While the software that is needed ot create RAR files of your own needs to be bought, Free RAR Extract Frog is a free tool that enables you to access the content of such files.

Zip files and the software needed to work with them become so popular because they are very easy to use, while the RAR format has a reputation for being rather more tricky. When it comes to extracting files from such archives, Free RAR Extract Frog makes things as easy as possible, and even provides you with a number of ways of achieving the same thing so you can choose the method that you feel most comfortable with.

The first option is to drag and drop a RAR file onto the program interface and you will be guided through the process of choosing where the files should be extracted to. Secondly, you can take advantage of the fact that RAR files will be associated with Free RAR Extract Frog and simply double click an archive to open it up in Free RAR Extract Frog. The final option is to right click a RAR file and select the Extract option.

In terms of ease of use, it doesn’t get much better than with Free RAR Extract Frog. The somewhat cutesy nature of the app and the slightly silly name may not be to everyone’s taste, but it gets the job done with a minimum of fuss. Claims of being a skinnable app are stretching the idea slightly as this involves simply change the background image – but this does not detract from the app itself.

Version 7.00 allows users to use screensavers as skins, supports iPhone wallpapers and Playstation Portable wallpapers as skins and features the latest RarZilla unrar engine.

Verdict:

It may not be much to look at, but Free RAR Extract Frog gets the job done.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.21

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.
