The Unarchiver
Use The Unarchiver to work with a wide range of compressed file formats

Although increased internet connection speeds mean that web users have to worry far less about the size of the files they download, a large proportion of files are delivered in one compressed format or another. There are a number of different formats to choose from including ZIP and RAR, but many others also exist.

OS X includes built in support for the decompression of a number of popular archive formats, but The Unarchiver extends the supported number of file types much further and adds a number of useful options that make the process of decompressing much easier.

The Unarchiver is able to automatically join together split archive - such as those with .001, .002, .003 extensions - and the number of support formats is staggering. All of the popular formats are supported as well as older and more obscure file types.

Once you have installed the application, all that is left to do is to indicate which files types it should be allowed to handle. The Unarchiver is likely to quickly turn out to be one of those tools you use on an almost daily basis.


A virtually flawless way to extract the contents of a huge number of different compressed file formats.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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.

Version 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
