Avanquest PowerDesk Pro
Replace Explorer with the powerful Avanquest PowerDesk Pro

Windows Explorer is probably best described as functional. While it allows for the management of files and folders, it is somewhat lacking in features - this is something PowerDesk Pro aims to rectify. This advanced file management tool features integrated FTP support so you can work with remote as well as local files.

It is possible to use the program to synchronise the contents of two folders making it ideal for creating automated backups of important files. There is also built in support for more than 30 compressed file types, so no additional software is needed to open a wide variety of archives.

A dual pane view makes it easy to copy and moves files from one location to another, and the Size Manager tool enables you to keep an eye on how your hard drive space is being used up. With tools to help with the management and organisation of MP3s, an integrated file viewer and much more, PowerDesk is a complete suite to help you to work with your files.

The program can also be used to manage your desktop, storing custom layouts so your icons appear where you want them to. You also have a number of security options available, including the password protection of files and secure deletion of sensitive data that is no longer needed.

Verdict:

One of the most advanced Explorer replacements available that caters for every aspect of working with files.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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 2.19.61 

• You can now see stickers in full size when you long press a notification.
