Resilio Sync 2.5.8
Synchronise files across your devices, share with others and send large files

Peer to peer technology has been around for years (remember Napster, anyone?). Simply put, the technology enables users to share data direct, computer to computer, across the internet. The files remain on your system and other users effectively download directly from your computer.

Sadly P2P networking has received a bad reputation over the years as its primary use was to share unauthorised or pirated data. However, the guys behind BitTorrent have gone on to develop a brand new P2P system designed for everyone from enterprise through the consumer.

Resilio is the new technology and Sync is the application aimed at home users. There's a basic free version which will enable an individual to synchronise their data across their devices. As an example, you could make sure your most important documents are in-sync across a PC, Mac and iOS device. There's even support for your NAS drive, if you want to quickly get files to/from the network drive or want to access them remotely.

The Pro version offers additional functionality. The One Time Send function enables you to share your largest files, which could be ideal if you want to send across a file you couldn't regularly attach to an email. The Selective Sync function offers the option for you to select the folders/files you want on certain devices. The Pro version is a one-off cost of $59.99. A Family Pro option, for 5 family members, is $99.99.

For business users, the Sync Business is designed for people working in different locations, enabling people to collaborate on large files, choose which files can be accessed by other users and much more. The Basic Business plan is $29/month for 5 users with 2 devices. Business Plus is $79/month for 20 users with 3 devices, whilst Business Premium is $199/month for 60 users with an unlimited number of devices.

What's new in 2.5.8 (see changelog for more)?

- Fixed Sync reporting inability to download file from remote peer due to being offline
 - Fixed "password_hash" parameter not working on Windows
 - Fixed Sync causing high CPU usage on Mac sometimes
 - Enabled WAN optimization for Sync Business trial
 - Minor cosmetic fixes

Verdict:

Looks promising, but we're not entirely sure how this differs from existing cloud-based tools such as Dropbox (obviously clearly without the cloud element).

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

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
