Bonjour Print Services for Windows
Easily share and configure compatible printers

Bonjour is an Apple technology that's designed to simplify networking by seeking out computers, iPods and other devices and making them quickly available from your computer, no configuration required.

While Bonjour is a standard feature of Mac OS X, it can also be added to Windows, where it offers much the same functionality. And so if you install the Bonjour Print Services for Windows, you should find the Bonjour Print Wizard is able to discover and configure any Bonjour-enabled printers on your LAN, with none of the usual browsing and other hassles.

Except, well, it may not be that simple. If you're using a third-party firewall (anything other than Windows own) then it may block network port 5353, which Bonjour requires to work. Check your firewall setup if you have problems.

Otherwise, though, Bonjour Print Services should make it easier to share network printers over wifi or Ethernet, or USB printers shared via a Mac or AirPort base station.

Verdict:

Bonjour can work well, but if there are conflicts with firewalls or other software then you might be better off using regular Windows printer sharing

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
