Febees Backup 1.5
Back up local, FTP and even Amazon S3-hosted data

Febees Backup is an interesting backup tool with some advanced features that you'll rarely see anywhere else.

The program doesn't restrict you to local backups, for instance. It works with Windows folders, FTP servers, ZIP files and Amazon S3 buckets, and these locations can be either the source or the destination for a backup job. So you could back up from your hard drive to FTP, from one FTP server to another, from Amazon S3 to your hard drive, and more.

Remote backups can be prone to the occasional error, of course, but Febees Backup recognises that with its "fault tolerance" feature. By default the program will retry up to 3 times per file, for instance, if there's a problem during transmission, and it will accept up to 10 unresolved errors per run before abandoning the job (but both figures can be changed, if you like).

Febees Backup also includes a very powerful filtering system to help choose exactly which files it will select. You're able to include or exclude files based on name, size, attributes, date, and even using regular expressions.

And there's an extremely flexible backup scheduler that lets you choose exactly when your backup job will run: the month, day, day of the week, hour, even the minute can be defined.

Verdict:

Febees Backup hasn't been updated since 2007, but if you need a tool with remote FTP or Amazon S3 support then it's still worth a look

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

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 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
