Acebyte Utilities 1.0
Optimise, clean and repair your PC with a click

Acebyte Utilities is a collection of tools that aim to help optimise, clean up and repair your PC.

Some of these modules seem quite familiar. A "Startup Manager" can disable Windows startup programs at a click, for instance. The  "Disk Defragment" tool reorganises files on your hard drive to help improve performance. And there are tools to fix Registry errors, free up RAM, and more.

Other options will scan your PC for "problems", though, and the issues they find are a little trickier to understand. Should you allow the program to "set two Cache value", for instance? What about "auto adjust desktop icon cache"? Or "disable debugging tools"? If you like to know what this kind of application is doing to your system then you'll be left a little frustrated here.

Still, we were a little reassured to see that Acebyte Utilities does record your original settings before it makes any changes. And so if a particular tweak has some undesirable result then you should be able to reverse it very quickly.

Verdict:

This PC maintenance suite is good in some areas, but falls a little short in others, and in particular some of its suggested tweaks are vague and difficult to understand

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.
