Super Mario Bros Java
An 80s arcade classic

Super Mario Bros Java is a free open-source recreation of the arcade classic.

The program arrives ready-to-run on any system with Java. It's not even archived - just double-click Mario.jar to begin.

A startup screen gives you options to run full screen or in a window, and with or without audio.

After that, everything works more or less as you'd expect: arrow keys to move, X to jump, Z to fire, and so on.

There's also an optional patch which should allow the game to be played with a gamepad. We didn't try this, but check out the developer's site if you're interested.

Verdict:

There are no great surprises here, but it's fun to play for fans of the original, and runs easily on anywhere with Java 1.4 or later.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.124

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 2.19.124 

- 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.
