CPU Grab Ex
Max out your CPU on demand

CPU Grab Ex is a tiny portable tool which can consume a defined amount of your processor power. This could help you monitor CPU cooling, or test the effectiveness of CPU optimisation software (resource hogs should see their CPU priority drop).

The program launches as a simple system monitor, displaying the CPU model, speed, and the current usage of every CPU core.

Use the slider to set the percentage CPU usage to consume, click the "Grab" button and watch as each CPU core gets busier.

There's also an option to grab GPU power, although this only works if you've an OpenCL-compatible graphics card.

Beware: allowing CPU Grab Ex to use a high proportion of CPU power could bring your system to its knees, maybe even cause a crash in extreme situations. Use the program with care.

Verdict:

CPU Grab Ex is a very basic stress tester, but its ability to grab GPU power is a plus, and it's also small and convenient to use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.21

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.
