FileZilla
Use FileZilla to upload and download files with ease

Uploading and downloading files can be a tricky business, particularly when large files are involved. Broken connections can means having to restart a file transfer from scratch, leading to increased bandwidth usage and wasted time. By using the FileZilla FTP client you have the ability to resume uploads and downloads that have been manually paused, or have been interrupted for some other reason.

An FTP client is particularly useful if you have a web site. Rather than using a hosting company's online tool to upload file, turning to a dedicated FTP client not only adds the option to resume transfers - including file over 4GB in size - but also makes it easy to work with multiple sites. FileZilla's site management feature can be used to save the login details for several FTP servers so there is no need to constantly enter usernames and passwords manually.

FileZilla also supports bookmarking to save having to trawl through remote directory listings, as well as the option to limit transfer speed to prevent FTP transfers impacting on other online activities. The program is available for a range of platforms, providing a familiar experience no matter which operating system you are using, and handy features such as drag and drop support, directory comparison and remote file search are a boon for any web site developer.

What's new in 3.27.1 (changelog)?

- Change client identification string if connecting with SFTP due to OpenSSH disregarding the supported ciphers announced by the client, resulting in less secure algorithms being chosen by OpenSSH.

Verdict:

Everything you could need from an FTP client and more in this impressive package

Great FTP Software

I've been using FileZilla since SmartFTP when commercial and absolutely recommend it. It has tons of advanced features, yet very easy to use for beginners. The program is updated with fair frequency and best of all - its free!

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.
