SyMenu
A superb portable program launcher/ Start Menu

SyMenu is a portable menu system which makes it easier to organise and launch your portable applications, as well as anything else installed on the host system.

At a minimum, you might use the program as a portable Start Menu. Launch it, and it adds an icon to your system tray. Press Ctrl+F1 at any point and a pop-up menu appears, giving speedy access to your Start Menu applications, Control Panel applets, folders, recent documents and more.

You can customise your menu further by adding applications, documents, folders, URLs and more, either by dragging and dropping individual items or importing a batch in a single operation (every EXE file in your USB stick's NirSoft folder, say).

If you don't have all the portable programs you need, no problem. SyMenu integrates with PortableApps.com and its PAF Suite, listing applications like 7-Zip, AbiWord, Autoruns, Dia, DOSBox, FileZilla, Firefox, GIMP, KeePass, OpenOffice, VLC Media Player and more, and installing them to your USB stick (or anywhere else) with a click.

Programs may be organised in whatever hierarchy you like, or you can just use the built-in Search tool to find what you need. Click in the Search box (or press Ctrl+Shift+F1), start typing, and any matches appear immediately (even if they're applications on the local system).

This is all vastly configurable, too. You can have particular programs launched when SyMenu starts or closes. It's able to temporarily replace file associations with items relating to your SyMenu apps. You can customise hotkeys, mouse gestures, icons, themes, and the list goes on.

Version 6.03.6634:

Drag and drop from FS now works with more than one element at the same time
Batch import analyzes the shortcuts files too (lnk files)
Fix - quit command line didn't work if there was no previous instance running

Verdict:

SyMenu is a superb launcher, versatile, configurable, yet also extremely easy to use. A success at every level.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.41

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 2.18.41

• You can now see recent status updates in the WhatsApp widget in your iPhone's Today View.
• Voice messages will now continue to play if you switch to another app or turn your screen off.
