Airytec Switch Off
Automatically shut down, suspend or restart your PC

Airytec Switch Off is a compact tool which allows you to schedule your PC to automatically shut down, restart, sleep and more.

The program is controlled from its system tray icon. Right-clicking this displays a menu where you can choose the type of action you'd like to perform - "Shutdown", "Restart", "Log off", "Sleep", "Lock" and more.

You can then decide to carry out the action immediately, or after a defined period of time (anything from five minutes, to five hours).

And even this time can be interpreted in three different ways. So if you've selected Sleep > 15 Minutes ,say, you can have the program suspend your PC in precisely 15 minutes time. But it can also wait until the user - or the computer - has been inactive for 15 minutes.

This works well, and is straightforward to use - but it's just the start of Switch Off's capabilities. The program also has three other more advanced features which move it to a whole other level.

You don't just have to choose from the program's list of standard actions, for instance. Airytec Switch Off also supports scripts, so you can have it launch any program you like. For example, the default list of actions doesn't include "Hibernate", but that doesn't have to be a problem: just use a script which calls the Windows Shutdown command to hibernate the system for you ("shutdown.exe /h").

Airtytec Switch Off also includes a complete task scheduler. If you'd like actions to run daily, weekly, at system start or log on , for instance, you can set them up here.

And there's even a web interface, which allows you to shut down your PC from any internet-enabled device. (Although if you're concerned about the security implications, don't worry, this is turned off by default.)

Perhaps most impressive of all, though, is despite all this power, Airytec Switch Off really is very lightweight, with the core of the program requiring less than 1MB RAM on our test PC.

 - Updated installer

Verdict:

Packed with features, yet still lightweight and easy to use, Airytec Switch Off is one of the most capable PC shutdown tools around

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
