Core FTP LE 2.2.1893
A fast and free FTP client

Core FTP LE is an easy-to-use FTP client, that, despite the "Lite Edition" tag, is packed with powerful features.

The program has an intuitive interface that means you'll feel immediately at home. There's an Explorer-type window for browsing your local system, another to navigate the remote server, a Site Manager to store your logon details and a status window to keep you in touch with what's going on - it's all very straightforward.

Explore the menus, though, and you'll find there's plenty of power here, with SFTP/SSH, SSL/TLS, and HTTP/HTTPS support, FTP/HTTP/SOCKS proxy, bandwidth control, and retry, resume and auto-reconnect options, amongst many other useful features. And although the company would like you to buy the program's big brother, Core FTP Pro, the Lite version doesn't nag you, display ads, or employ any other annoying tactics to try and change your minds.

So where's the catch? There's no scheduler, encryption or integrated ZIP support. The program won't display thumbnails of your remote directories, and there's no email notification of a successful transfer. If these are a must then you'll have to opt for Core FTP Pro (licences start at $34.95), but otherwise Core FTP LE 2.1 should provide all the file transfer protocol you need.

Recent changes include (see changelog for more):

OpenSSL upload speed improvements 
OpenSSL detect session reuse added 
OpenSSL security level option added (High crypto) 
Windows SSL security level option added (High crypto) 
Race condition with Windows SSL / session reuse fixed 
32-bit MSI installer SFTP module fixes 

Verdict:

A flexible and well-designed FTP client, well worth a try

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
