Auslogics Disk Defrag Touch
A full-screen touch-oriented disk defragger

Auslogics Disk Defrag Touch is an unusual disk defragger built for touch-screen computers (although it runs just fine with a mouse and keyboard, too).

The program has a very Windows 8-like interface, and we don't just mean "it uses a few colorful tiles". It takes your full screen, has the same bold look to the interface, similar layout for its options, and you can swipe left or right on a touch screen, spin the mouse wheel or drag the mouse left or right to see what else is on offer.

Get past the visuals and defragging works more or less as you'd expect. You choose a drive; analyse it, launch a quick or full defrag; and then watch as the usual drive map keeps you up-to-date with progress.

Performance is great, as the program is based on Auslogics' regular disk defragger. But if you still don't have time to run a full defrag, no problem: Auslogics Disk Defrag Touch also includes an "Optimize Programs" section which appears to defragment files relating to a particular application only.

There are some useful tweaks and settings. You can have the program delete temporary files before defragging, speeding up the process. An option to skip large file fragments also improves defrag speed without making much difference to your final system performance. Or you might tell the program to move system files to the beginning of the disk, which means defragging could take a lot longer, but you should see a faster system afterwards.

A simple scheduler then makes it easy to run all this automatically, every day, week or month, or when your PC is idle.

And, slightly bizarrely, there's a game-like "levels" scheme where you earn tokens for using the program, recording achievements, improving your status, unlocking secret features, and collecting tokens which apparently you'll be able to "redeem later". (For what? We've no idea.)


Auslogics Disk Defrag Touch is smartly designed, as close to the Windows 8 look as we've ever seen from a desktop application. Its full screen interface is annoying when used with a mouse, but works well on a touch screen, and the program's capable defrag engine does a good job of optimising your drive.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.110

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 2.18.110 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
