Memory History Tool
Which processes are hogging your RAM?

Memory History Tool is a free application which logs the processes using your RAM.

The program isn't intrusive in any way. There's no installation required, no kernel drivers or other low-level tweakery, just a single executable which you run as an administrator when required.

The initial console displays some basic details: total and available RAM, a graph and some figures showing the recent history, and the name of the process currently using the most RAM.

There's also a toolbar with further options, although these are hidden by default. That seems entirely pointless as the space isn't used for anything else, but if you move the mouse cursor up to the top right corner then the various buttons appear.

These options provide marginally more detailed views on your memory use, including by selected or all processes. That's welcome, although you could still get more information from Task Manager.

The "Top Processes History" list is more interesting, as it records which programs have been using the most RAM throughout the time Memory History Tool has been running.

The graph and data may be exported as an image or CSV file with a click.

A "Memory Stress Test" grabs large amounts of RAM to help you see how Windows and your applications respond.

Bonus security features include a little integration with a few Eset and Avast antivirus tools (not the free build), enabling particular processes to be checked for malware with a click.


- Some Premium features are enabled in the freeware version
- Reworked program settings
- Enhanced 'portability'
- User related questions can be disabled in the freeware version
- The user can define/select on which process info should appear on main graph
- Optimizations, bug fixes


Memory History Tool's interface is cumbersome and the program doesn't do very much, but its ability to maintain a history of RAM use may help you optimise your PC.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.41

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 2.19.41 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
