Tribler
Tribler lets your download torrents and stream video

Looking for a torrent client to satisfy your download needs? There are certainly plenty to choose from and most client offer very much the same set of the features and options. Tribler is a program that aims to be a little different while still offering everything you would expect from a torrent client. There is not only support for torrent and magnet links, there is also the ability to stream video using the on demand feature.

As you would expect, you can perform searches for anything you might be interested in downloading, but Tribler focuses quite strongly on the community aspect of using BitTorrent. The main screen of the app is home to not only the search bar, but also a tag cloud so you can see what other people have been looking for – if something inspires you, just click the tag to perform the search yourself.

If you would prefer that the tag cloud did not show a particular type of more adult content, there is a family filter that can be easily switched on and off. In some respects, Tribler is similar in style to newsgroups, and you also have the option of browsing through the dozens of channels that are available. You can set up your own Tribler channel if you have files you would like to share with other people, or you might prefer to contribute to an existing channel.

Just as with other torrent clients you can limit your upload and download speeds to balance how your internet connection is used, but it is the video on demand feature that is particularly interesting, While this is not a unique feature, it has been well implemented and reduces the time you need to wait to watch a video you are particularly keep on. Whatever torrent client you are using at the moment, this is one that you should take a look at.

What's new in 7.2.0 (see changelog for more):

Improved the logic for credit mining by deploying a multi-level investment policy.
Added an option to sort torrent files in the user interface.
Added the ability to record historical transactions in the market.

Verdict:

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
