Use Shairport4w to stream your iTunes library to your PC

Apple's AirPlay can be used to stream your iTunes media library from your PC or Mac to your iPhone, iPod or iPad as well as a wide range of supported hardware such as speakers and AV receivers. Shairport is a related, free tool that can be used to stream media files from your iOS device to your Windows computer.

While a Windows based computer can be used as a media broadcaster, but it cannot be used as a receiver. This is something that Shairport rectifies - all that is required is that Apple's Bonjour service is installed and that you have some media files that you would like to stream.

Getting Shairport up and running is an incredibly simple process. Launch the program and enter a name for the access point you are creating and enter a password if you would like to add a layer of security. All that is then needed is for a device with an iTunes library to log onto the same network as your computer.

This can be another PC, a Mac or a device running iOS - you just need to ensure that you are using a version of iTunes or iOS that supports AirPlay. You can then fire up your iTunes library and opt to broadcast it to your access point, making it possible to enjoy your music collection anywhere in the home.

Version changes:
    - minor GUI Improvements
    - minor Bug-Fixes
    - fixed "Bug" #14 (Multi-Soundcard-Mode / Advanced Options)
    - fixed Software Removal


Shairport provides a great way for Windows users to stream a single music library around the home

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.
