Split Byte
Split massive files into smaller, more manageable chunks

Split Byte is a tool for breaking large files into smaller segments for easier handling, then rejoining them at some later date.

This can be very useful if you need to work with a particularly large file: a multi-gigabyte video, say. It'll be too large to email, perhaps even save to CD or DVD, but if you use Split Byte to separate the file into chunks then it'll become much more manageable.

The core of the program is very straightforward. Point Split Byte at your file, choose the number of chunks you need (or the maximum chunk size), click Split, and you're done - the program will divide up the file on your behalf.

But there are also lots of additional features. You can choose to zip up the file before splitting, for instance; the program can encrypt your file, useful if it contains confidential data; you can even have the chunks sent via email when you're done.

Joining is similarly straightforward (point the program at the first chunk and it'll figure out everything else on its own).

And you even get an MD5 Checksum calculator to confirm that the split and join operations haven't corrupted the file (that is, it's the same).

Please note, by default the program will install a browser addon. If that's not what you want, be sure to choose the "Custom Setup" option during installation, and clear the relevant checkboxes. Then click "Decline" on any subsequent add-on related dialogs which might appear.

Version 2.0:

Fixed bugs.
Redesigned GUI.
Remember all selected values and options.
Show translated control text as a tooltip if it is unreadable.
Drag and drop for file comparison.
Improved localization - added new languages.
Repeat overwrite,rename,skip action for all following file conflicts.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use file splitter with some useful extra features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
