PointerStick
Add a virtual pointer to your screen to help with presentations

PointerStick is a tiny tool which adds a virtual pointer to your screen, perfect for highlighting specific areas during a presentation.

Just run the program and (by default) a very large pointer appears. Move your mouse cursor as usual, and the pointer stick adjusts position to point at the same thing; anyone watching, even from a distance, will clearly get the message.

Of course a pointer stick of this size may get in the way sometimes, but fortunately this is easily fixed - just triple-clicking the mouse toggles it on and off.

If this still isn't quite good enough, though, clicking the program's system tray icon reveals a handy configuration console, where you can set the stick size, colour and style, transparency and more.

And perhaps most conveniently of all, PointerStick is portable, so this isn't something you have to install; just copy it to a folder sometimes and run it when necessary. (Don't worry about system resources, either. On our test system it typically consumed only around 3MB RAM when running on the background.)

Version 2.72 brings (Version History):
    - New: Option, to disable the auto rotation of the Pointer Stick, and four relative positions to the mouse pointer. 

Verdict:

A well-thought-out tool which can be a great help during formal presentations, or any time when you need to show something on your PC in detail to several people

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.5

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.
