Arq
Securely backup your files online with Arq

Arq is an easy-to-use cloud backup tool which can save your chosen folders to Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive/ Nearline, Amazon S3/ Glacier.

The program is very straightforward. Once launched, just select your backup destination or destinations (you can use more than one service in the same job) and it automatically backs up your user profile folder. You can select any other folders to protect in a click or two.

Your backups will be visible from any other device which can access the same service, and Arq also has a Restore pane of its own, where you can select and recover whatever you need (including previous versions of modified files).

While this sounds and looks basic, edit your backup job or check the Arq preferences and you'll find some useful options. For example, a flexible scheduler can run backups every X hours, daily or on demand, as well as pausing backups between the hours you specify. There are also options to limit the total size of your backup, to throttle bandwidth use automatically (slow down uploads when other processes are using the network), and to send email alerts when backups finish or have errors.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use cloud backup tool with some powerful options and settings.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
