FrostWire
An easy-to-use P2P file sharing program

FrostWire is a P2P file sharing program for the Gnutella network, and based on the LimeWire source code.

A simple search tool makes it easy to look for particular videos, audio files, images, documents or programs. Or you can just click the Torrents tab and enter any keyword that might appear in your target torrent file name. Search results appear at speed, and you can be downloading files in just a few seconds.

All this comes without the spyware, ads or commercial nag screens that you get in some of the competition. (FrostWire will install the Ask toolbar if you accept all the default installation settings, but clear the appropriate checkboxes and you'll stay Ask-free.)

And this version is more compact, loads faster, delivers improved BitTorrent support and has enhanced spam filters, amongst many other changes.

Frostwire 6.0.7 changes include:

- New feature: Preview while you download.  
- Memory and CPU savings when parsing search results on some search engines.
- BTJunkie fixed.
- TPB search fixed.
- KAT search fixed.
- Monova search fixed.
- Fixes bug where soundcloud, archive.org audio downloads would not automatically be scanned by iTunes.
- Croatian translation updates.
- Torrent creation and parsing now done using frostwire-jlibtorrent api. More Azureus cleanups.
- Fixes run on startup issue on Windows. Thanks to @win32re.
- Upgraded java virtual machine to 1.8.0_40 with hundreds of fixes and upgrades.
- Upgraded H2 database engine.
- Upgraded frostwire-jlibtorrent to the latest code from libtorrent.
- UX-improvement: A repeated search will honor active search engines.

Verdict:

A fast and capable file sharing application

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
