Document Metadata Cleaner
Detect and clean unwanted metadata from Microsoft Office documents

Document Metadata Cleaner is a free tool which removes metadata from older Office documents (doc, xls, ppt, not docx, xlsx or pptx).

The program installs without hassle, no adware or marketing worries. And clicking Analyze allows you to start the reporting process. Decide which documents you'd like to check (Word, Excel, and/ or Powerpoint), point the program at a file or folder, click Next, and you'll soon be looking at a list of files, along with some of the data they contain.

Clicking Clean Files then allows you to process them, and you get to decide exactly what to do. There are options to clear the Title, Subject, Keywords and Comments, for instance; reset the Author, Company, Template name, revision count and editing time; and you can remove the revision log, wipe the Recent Hyperlinks list, strip out the document GUID, and more. Select some or all of the options on offer, and you can delete them with a click.

Verdict:

Document Metadata Cleaner is quick and reasonably easy to use, but the fact that it doesn't work with docx/ xlsx/ pptx files is a major issue.

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.
