Patch My PC
Easily keep key Windows applications and tools up-to-date

Patch My PC is an easy-to-use tool which can quickly check your PC for outdated software.

Just launch the program, and it will check your installations of Adobe Reader, Flash, Java, Firefox, Quicktime and Acrobat (if present), highlighting any which aren't the very latest version. If you spot any problems, just click "Run Updates" and Patch My PC will download and install any required updates for you.

The program can also check the following packages for update, amongst others: Microsoft Security Essentials, Google Chrome, CCleaner Slim, CPU-Z, Defraggler, ImgBurn, SandBoxie, VLC Player, File Zilla, WinRar, Pidgin, itunes, Dropbox, Pot Player, Safari, Google Earth, Spybot Search & Destroy, KeePass, Picasa, Malwarebytes, Thunderbird, Speccy and Shockwave.

And just for completeness, Patch My PC will also display whatever Windows updates might be available for your system. Which could be useful, even if you have the essentials installed automatically, as it displays details of the optional updates as well.

Patch My PC 3.1.0.8 brings (Changelog):

Enabled support for .NET Framework 3.5 to 4 migration for a future update

Verdict:

Patch My PC may only work with a few applications, but it's ability to update all these silently is impressive, and as it's portable you can easily have the program update all the Windows computers you use

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
