Steam Cleaner
Remove Steam, Origin, Uplay, GoG junk

Steam Cleaner is a portable tool for removing junk game files left behind by Steam, Origin, Uplay and GoG.

The program is as simple as this kind of application can be. It's a single executable, no installation required, no settings to think about, not even a "Scan" button-- just launch it and within a second or two you'll see a list of any game leftovers.

The developer said Steam Cleaner can clear up "gigabytes" of data in a few seconds. It found more than 100MB of junk on our tiny Steam setup, so this could be plausible.

If you're happy to wipe the files, click the Clean button, confirm you really, really want to do this, and the data is permanently deleted. (That is, gone forever, not sent to the Recycle Bin or anywhere else.)

Beware: like all third-party cleanup tools, Steam Cleaner may make mistakes occasionally and delete something important. For example, the release notes for 2.3 mention fixes for "Important Battle.net files being deleted" and "Fixed game files for Penumbra: Overture being removed".

The program caused no problems for us, freeing up 100MB plus without having any apparent effect on our Steam apps. But be careful, and back up anything important before you use Steam Cleaner for the first time.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use specialist drive cleaner which could free up a surprising amount of space. Be careful, though-- it can make mistakes too.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

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 2.17.51
