Etcher
Burn images to USB keys, SD cards

Etcher is an easy-to-use cross-platform tool for burning images to SD cards, USB drives and other removable devices.

The program keeps operations to the bare minimum, all of them clearly displayed on a simple interface. Choose your image, then your drive, and finally click the "Flash!" button.

Etcher supports many different image formats: ISO, IMG, RAW, BZ2, DMG, DSK, ETCH, GZ, HDDIMG, XZ and ZIP.

The "Choose a drive" step only allows selecting removable devices, reducing the chance that you'll accidentally trash a fixed drive. If this doesn't suit your needs - maybe a removable device isn't being detected correctly - you can disable this protection by turning on "Unsafe Mode" in settings.

Once the image is written, Etcher validates the results to make sure it's worked correctly. That's usually a good idea, but can take a while, and if you prefer you can disable validation in Settings.

Verdict:

Etcher is a simple and straightforward image burner which works almost anywhere. It's a likeable tool, but keep in mind that it only burns the image. If you need extra abilities, like an option to burn a Windows image and make it bootable, look for a more sophisticated tool such as Rufus.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
