Driver Booster 6
Are your drivers up-to-date? Here's how to find out

IObit's Driver Booster is a simple and straightforward tool which can scan your system for outdated drivers, then download and install replacements with a click. Upgrade to the Pro version and you gain additional features such as backup, faster download speeds and wider hardware support.

The program is unusually easy to use. There's no complex interface, no searching around trying to decide what you need to do: just launch Driver Booster, it immediately scans your PC, and a detailed report appears a few seconds later.

You can then click the "Update" button individually for particular drivers, handy if you want to keep precise control over exactly what's going on.

Or if you're in a hurry, just click "Update Now" and Driver Booster will download and launch each update. Thanks to a silent update mechanism, you no longer have to manually wade through each and every driver update package, but do expect to reboot at the end of the process.

It's incredibly simple to use, but more experienced users will find plenty of tweakable options available should they need them.

Version 6.0.2.596 brings (see changelog for more):

+ Supported updating 3,000,000+ drivers & components which passed the Microsoft WHQL tests and strict IObit Review rules.
+ New "Game Ready" drivers for better and more stable gaming performance.
+ New Boost module offers a 1-click solution for ultimate gaming experience and top system performance.
+ Enhanced scan engine for smoother and faster scan.
+ Enhanced Auto Driver Update to automatically update the selected types of drivers.
+ Enhanced Fix No Sound tool for better sound repair capability.
+ Improved Clean Unplugged Device Data tool to support viewing details and ignoring device data.
+ Improved Fix Network Failure tool to be more intuitive.
+ Enhanced Driver Backup and Restore for faster loading.
+ Improved Feedback to display solutions to some specific requests.
+ More intuitive UI & custom skins.
+ Supported 48 languages.

Verdict:

Driver Booster is a well-designed tool which makes it very easy to keep your drivers up-to-date.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
