Use Transmission to manage your torrent downloads

The BitTorrent protocol provides one of the fastest ways to download large files from the internet, but to take advantage of it you need to install a torrent client. Transmission is one such client and it benefits from an extremely small resource footprint as well as the fact that it is incredibly easy to use.

The client is written in objective-c which means, on a Mac, that it integrates tightly with OS X and uses Growl notification and dock badges to keep you informed about the status of the program. Besides speed and low resource requirements, Transmission includes everything you would expect to find in a torrent client.

In addition to the program itself, there is also a web interface for download management, peer exchange, support for magnet links, global and torrent by torrent speed limiting and much more.

One of the key benefits of Transmission over other torrent clients is the number of add-ons that are available. Browse through the add-ons directory and you will find everything from the ability to control torrents from your mobile to an updated web interface and much more.

What's new in 2.94 (see the release notes for more info)?

- Fix building against LibreSSL (#284, #486, #570)
- Fix building against mbedTLS (#115, #528)
- Fix torrents ETA calculation (#522)
- Fix cross-compilation issues caused by miniupnpc configuration test (#475)

Verdict:

There are a number of torrent clients to choose from, but Transmission's speed and extension options means that it is well worth a look.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
