Bulk Crap Uninstaller
Uninstall multiple programs - silently - with a click

BCUninstaller (Bulk Crap Uninstaller) is a free portable tool which makes it easier to remove large numbers of programs from your PC.

The program offers a detailed view of your installed software. As well as the basics - program name, install date, version, size - you'll see its "About" URL, whether it's 32 or 64-bit, its storage folder, Registry key, uninstaller type, product code, uninstall commands and more.

Colour-coding tells you more, like: is the uninstaller file missing? If present, is it a Windows component? Does it have a valid certificate?

Right-clicking an application displays options to open its web page, view its storage location, launch its "Configure" dialog and more.

If you'd like to uninstall one or more programs, then just select as many as you like. When you're ready, click "Uninstall" to remove them as normal, "Quietly uninstall" to remove them without seeing any further uninstaller prompts, or "Manually" to allow BCU to uninstall the program itself.

This manual installation process worked well when we tried it. The program scanned for relevant files and Registry keys, and gave us a full list, complete with a "confidence level" for each one. You can choose what to keep and what to remove, and BCU asks if you'd like to create a Registry backup before it goes to work.

What's new in 4.8 (see changelog for more)?

- Added scanning of drive roots for common application folders
- Added ability to scan removable drives for portable apps (off by default)
- Added detection of PortableApps and LiberKey portable app stores
- Added option to disable highlighting of special uninstallers (can completely disable colors on the list now)
- Added more descriptive error message when opening invalid uninstall lists
- Added check for Translations not added to supported cultures
- Added cache stat logging
- Improved accuracy of linking startups to applications
- Replaced references to CCleaner with BleachBit
- Specified support for Windos 10 in application manifest
- Standardized UpdateHelper I/O and error codes, fixes some crashes

Verdict:

Bulk Crap Uninstaller is an excellent application manager and uninstaller, packed with advanced features yet also very easy - and relatively safe - to use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.90

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 2.18.90

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
