XtraFinder
Multi-tabbed Finder windows is just one of XtraFinder's useful additions

Is it us, or do the basic components of Windows (Explorer) and OS X (Finder) sometimes fall short of expectation? The wide number of Finder-extension tools for the Mac would suggest it’s a bit of a weak link, but the downside is that tools like TotalFinder and Default Folder X don’t come free.

If you’re willing to lower your sights a little, and make do with some minor – but potentially game-saving – changes, then XtraFinder is well worth considering. It’s free, small (it’ll take up just 1.1MB of space on your hard drive) and unobtrusive – once installed, it basically attaches itself to Finder and adds some very useful tools.

There’s a spring-loaded Path bar, Copy to… and Move to… options for swiftly shunting files around your hard drive, and the ability to list folders on top of all other items in Finder windows. Then mix in forcing all apps to maximise when you click the Zoom button, spring-loaded Path bar with contents of any folder accessible by right-clicking and the ability to collapse all windows, show/hide hidden items and refresh direct from the Finder’s View menu.

Version 0.7 added experimental support for tabs, allowing you to move effortlessly between two or more folders within a single Folder window. This has been joined in version 0.8 by dual-pane support for easier file operations.

This scratches the surface of what the program is capable of – everything’s configurable from the Finder > XtraFinder > Preferences menu, and you can even move this menu to the menu bar should you want it to be even more accessible.

Verdict:

Aside from some rough edges, XtraFinder is an essential add-on for Mac users frustrated by Finder’s shortcomings.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
