Manage your torrent and magnet downloads with Tixati

Making use of the BitTorrent protocol is a great way to speed up your downloads and help to spread bandwidth usage between many people. But in order to download files in this way you will need to have a torrent client – this can be the simple, official tool from BitTorrent or one of the many thirds party tools that have sprung up over the years. There are countless apps that you could use, and Tixati is just one of them.

The program can be configured to be the automatic handler for .torrent files so as soon as you click a link the associated download will begin. There is a growing movement away from .torrent files as more and more site take advantage of magnet link which do not require even tiny torrent files to be hosted. These can also be handled by Tixat and you should find that download speeds are comparable with other clients.

You are afforded a great level of control over how your internet connection as a whole is used to upload and download files, as well as control over individual files. This is one area in which Tixati differs from the competition, but in addition to the level of control you are given over your connection, you are also provided with detailed information about all of the downloads you are running.

Harking back to the days when Usenet and IRC were more popular, here you can also use the various channels that are available to chat with other Tixati users, sharing information and files in this way. The program can also be used to stream media, share files of your own and more besides. Available in both 32- and 64-bitr varieties, including versions for Windows and Linux, this is a fairly impressive tool that rivals the likes of uTorrent.

Version 2.55 - see full changelog for more.

Verdict:

A torrent tool for the power user, Tixati gives you a great level of control over your transfers

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.
