AOMEI PE Builder
AOMEI PE Builder lets you build a recovery disc packed with your portable tools of choice.

What would you do if your PC suddenly failed to boot? What happens if you can’t access any of the onboard recovery or repair options? Assuming your PC is still physically functioning, the solution lies in having a bootable rescue CD or USB flash drive to hand, ready to step into action should the worst happen.

Free recovery media isn’t too hard to find, but AOMEI’s solution will appeal to anyone who’s either a fan of the company or who’s looking for a friendly recovery environment not to dissimilar to Windows itself.

AOMEI PE Builder Free uses Windows’ own Windows PE recovery environment as its basic bootable operating system, then provides you with two AOMEI utilities, its Backupper and Partition Assistant tools for recovering readable data and examining partitions, along with a number of useful extras.

You'll see there are two download links provided - the larger download contains Backupper and Partition Assistant; the smaller one excludes these two tools.

Once launched, you’ll be stepped through a wizard putting the components together. A number of portable apps are provided – such as Recuva for file recovery – but you can also add your own portable apps here too. Advanced users can also add drivers too.

Once done, you’ll be prompted to burn a CD, save to USB drive or create an ISO file, and your bootable recovery tool is ready to go on standby. And should the worst happen and your PC fails to boot, you’ll find it takes you to a Windows-like desktop, similar to Safe mode. You’ll have access to the Control Panel, Windows system tools, the command prompt, Internet Explorer and all the tools you’ve integrated into your disc, giving you a great opportunity to troubleshoot your problem, hopefully find a Windows repair or at least recover critical data before taking the next step.

Version 2.0 (Changelog):
- Support to download Windows 10 recovery environment to create a Windows PE bootable media.
- Support to cancel the operation during the process of creating a Windows PE bootable media.
- Added dual-boot function: Windows PE bootable media can support both EFI and Legacy BIOS boot modes (64-bit creation tool required).
- Now AOMEI PE Builder fully support Windows 10/Vista/XP.
- Update built-in tools.
- Fixed some known issues.

Verdict:

A remarkably easy way to build a powerful, easy to use and ultimately essential recovery tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
