Use DameWare Mini Remote Control to take control of remote computers

The option of remotely accessing a computer that is located in a different room, a different building or even a different country is fantastically useful, and there are various ways in which this can be achieved. So popular has remote access become that Microsoft even included a remote access tool in its own operating system. While this is a functional tool, if you want more control over your remote sessions, you may find it helpful to turn to a third party tool.

DameWare Mini Remote Control is different from other similar remote access tools in two key areas. Firstly, it has been designed to be particularly light on resources so it offers impressive performance, and the fact that it makes use of Windows APIs means that overall program size can be reduced while maintaining the independence of the software.

The second unique feature of the software is the fact that it supports Interactive Smart Card Login as well as Remote Smart Card Authentication. This is particularly useful option for professional systems which require user authentication to gain access to different options.

Despite its power and relative ease of use, the price tag attached to DameWare Mini Remote Control is certainly offputting. There are numerous remote access tools available at a fraction of the cost, or even free of charge, so it may well be difficult to justify the outlay demanded by this software. That said, the feature set is such that the application is clearly aimed at a more professional market, and in this field the program actually represents fairly good value for money.


An expensive remote access solution for home users, but for business environments the security features come at a good price point.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
