Xtorrent
Download and manage torrents in OS X with Xtorrent

Reliable torrent clients for OS X are few and far between, but Xtorrent is a solid performer that makes it easy to download files using the BitTorrent protocol. There is no need to rely on visits to torrent sites to track down files as a search facility is built into Xtorrent. By default this will search a limited number of sites, but you can easily add others.

Working with multiple simultaneous download is make simple with a neatly implemented download queue. This makes it easy to pause and prioritise downloads, control the number of downloads that can run at any given time and override the rules you have put in place when the need arises.

A native 64-bit program, Xtorrent takes full advantage of Snow Leopard and operates quickly without being a drain on system resources. There is also iTunes integration so the files you download can be automatically exported ready for syncing with your portable device.

Built in support for RSS feeds means that it is possible to keep up to date with the latest content from your favourite sites and you can share links via Twitter in a couple of clicks. Features such as bandwidth scheduling, search suggestions and automatic port configuration make Xtorrent a joy to use.
 

Verdict:

Xtorrent is everything a torrent client should be and benefits from its light footprint and speedy operation.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
