M8 Free Multi Clipboard
M8 Free Multi Clipboard offers a no-frills extension to the clipboard

The biggest drawback of the clipboard is the fact it can only one hold item at a time, which is why there’s a veritable cottage industry of clipboard-replacement tools falling over themselves to allow you to store more than one item in the clipboard at once.

Many of these tools develop over time into powerful – yet complicated – beasties. M8 Free Multi Clipboard doesn’t bother with all of that: launch it from the Start > All Programs menu and it’ll appear in your Notification area. Each time you copy an item (M8 supports both text and images) into the clipboard you’ll hear a ping, and you can rest assured it’s been added to M8’s list. Up to 25 items can be stored at once – once you copy in item number 26, it’ll replace item number one on the list, and so on.

By default, pasting from M8 involves double-clicking its Notification area icon, then clicking the item you wish to paste (roll the mouse over it to view a preview of the image or entire text snippet that’s been stored). Too much hassle? Select Tools > Options and you can have a Clipboard button appear whenever you roll the mouse to one or more edges of the screen, or create your own hotkey (how about something obvious like [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [V]?) to bring up the clipboard. If you then choose View > Keyboard Pasting Characters, you can then paste any selected clip using a letter from A to Y.

It’s as simple as that: a simple, quick and easy clipboard replacement tool. The program also comes with a trial version of its more fully functional replacement called Spartan, but if you’re looking for a more powerful feature set, you’ll find plenty of free clipboard replacement tools on this very site.
 

Verdict:

Sometimes less is more – if all you need is the ability to store up to 25 clips on the clipboard at once, M8 Free Multi Clipboard offers a no-frills, fuss-free solution.

This will serve as a great introduction to the program Spartan. Once you get used to this freebie you will find it a part of your life. Go to the publisher's site and buy Spartan. You will not regret it.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.20.11

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 2.20.11 

- New privacy settings allow you to control who can add you to groups. Admins will have the option of sending you a private invite instead. Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups to get started.
- Added call waiting support so you can choose to accept an incoming WhatsApp call while you're already on another call.
- Updated Chats screen design to make it easier to quickly scan your messages.
- You can now send messages directly from the Braille keyboard when using VoiceOver mode.
