Universal Extractor 1.6.1
Unpack just about any archive format

Universal Extractor is a simple tool, with just one purpose in life - to extract the contents of just about every archive and installation file type around.

The program supports all the formats you'd expect, then - ZIP, TAR, RAR, CAB, SIT and so on. But it can also read older formats, including ACE, ARC, ARJ, LZH files and more. And Universal Extractor is able handle files that aren't so commonly supported in other archive tools, like Debian and Gentee packages.

There's strong coverage of installation files, too, with Universal Extractor able to work with many different EXE formats: Inno Setup, Installer Vise, InstallShield, NSIS, RoboForm, SetupFactory, Wise and others.

And Universal Extractor can also unpack some disc image formats (ISO, BIN/ CUE, CDI, NRG), compound Help and HTML files (CHM, HLP, MHT), Microsoft LIT e-books, even Outlook Express DBX mail files.

Usefully, the program analyses the structure of an archive to figure out which file type it is. So if an archive's file extension has been lost, this won't matter - Universal Extractor should still be able to unpack its contents.

Verdict:

A useful tool to have around, just in case you download a file that your regular archive utility can't handle

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.
