TinkerTool
Tweak your Mac's settings with TinkerTool

Tweaking tools are easy to find for Windows, but there tend to be fewer available for OS X. TinkerTool is a system customisation tool which enables you to tinker with hidden settings to help configure your Mac more to your liking.

While a large number of customisations can be put in place using the Preferences built into OS X, but TinkerTool enables you to delve a little deeper. You are placed in complete control of settings such as font smoothing, and anti-aliasing, as well as controlling the positioning of desktop wallpaper.

You can customise the appearance and functionality of Finder and disable the dashboard if required. Any changes made in the program only affect the current user, so in a multi-user environment, everyone can apply their own preferred settings. It also means that administrator privileges are not required and safeguards are in place that make it possible to roll back settings to their defaults, or the settings that were in use before TinkerTool was installed.

This is a great tweaking tool which is useful in the way it provides easy access to a wide range of built in settings, but also thanks to the fact that it makes it possible to change settings that you would otherwise not be able to.

What's new in 6.1?

- The preference settings for Dock and Launchpad have been separated and are now presented on two different panes.
- Added support for Macintosh computers with Touch Bar.
- Added stepless control for the initial page zoom setting of Safari.
- Added feature to add spacer elements to the Dock.
- Added feature to change the layout arrangement of Launchpad.
- Several language translations had to be removed for organizational reasons. This may be temporary.

Verdict:

A great way to customise the appearance, performance and feel of your Mac.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
