Garland Christmas Tree 1.0
An animated Christmas tree for your desktop

Garland Christmas Tree is a full-featured desktop animation of a Christmas tree. You don't just get the regulation tree, with a star on top and presents underneath: there are also strings of lights which flash in various sequences, while glittering Disney-type stars fall gently nearby.

We didn't find this quite as distracting as you might think. Sure, if you're working to a deadline then it's probably something you'd put to one side. But otherwise you'll probably be able to carry on with regular day-to-day activities, while the tree flashes quietly in the corner of your screen.

If you find the effects annoying, then right-clicking the tree reveals some useful tweaks. You can turn off the animated stars, or the lights; increasing the tree's transparency may also help, and if you clear the "always on top" setting then it won't be visible over other programs.

There's also a bizarre animation, fortunately disabled by default, which has colourful balls bouncing in front of the tree. It's just weird; ignore it.

But the rest of the program is great, and the perfect way to add some festive fun to PC.


No adware, no installation required, Garland Christmas Tree is just an attractive, configurable and highly festive decoration for your desktop.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
