RealVNC Free 5.2.3
Access your PC from almost any internet-enabled device, anywhere in the world

RealVNC is a remote access tool that allows you to securely access and control your PC over the internet.

There are plenty of free ways to do this - including a RealVNC Free Edition - but the Personal Edition includes many additional features that you may think are worth the purchase price.

One-Port HTTP & VNC delivers easier setup, for instance, by allowing Java and VNC sessions to run through a single TCP port.

File transfer is a particularly valuable extra. One major reason for logging in to your home PC in the first place is that you need access to some important file, and RealVNC Personal Edition allows this without having to figure out some additional workaround.

There's also printing: in just a few clicks you can access a document on your home PC, and send it to a local printer for a quick copy.

Enhanced security features include VNC server authentication, with 2048-bit RSA keys used to verify your identity, and up to 256-bit AES encryption for each VNC session.

And if you need to access multiple PCs remotely then you'll appreciate the integrated VNC address book , which stores the shortcuts for all your VNC servers in one convenient location.

Note that you need a license code for the Free Edition, which you can obtain from http://www.realvnc.com/purchase/activate/

What's new in 5.2.3?

- FIXED: Accept/reject prompts now appear correctly if a host computer user logs out while VNC Viewer users are connecting.
FIXED: Re-installing or upgrading VNC on certain platforms no longer results in duplicate PAM entries that can prevent connections.
FIXED: The VNC Server in Virtual Mode daemon (vncserver-virtuald) no longer crashes the host computer if VNC parameters or Xvnc options in configuration files are specified in the wrong format.
The TryLegacyCaptureMethod VNC parameter can be set to 1 if screen corruption is experienced when connected to headless servers running OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

Verdict:

A powerful remote access tool with many time-saving features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
