EMCO MAC Address Scanner
Quickly collect the MAC addresses for all your networked PCs

The MAC Address Scanner is a handy free tool that will quickly collect MAC addresses for all the PCs on your network.

This can come in useful for a range of network tools. Wake-on-LAN utilities typically require a MAC address before they'll allow you to wake up a particular computer, for instance, while some security packages may restrict access on the basis of MAC addresses. You can collect these manually, but it's tedious, particularly for large networks: using an automated tool like the MAC Address Scanner makes more sense.

The program doesn't require any great networking expertise. Launch it, and the MAC Address Scanner will detect your current networks (both workgroups and domains). Choose one from the left, launch the Enumeration Wizard, step through it accepting all the default settings, and that's just about it. Once you click Finish the program will begin to scan your network, looking for other computers and capturing their MAC address.

This can take a little while, as the MAC Address Scanner must work its way through every subnet, extracting addresses from network protocols if possible, or contacting PCs directly if not. You can just leave the program to do its work, though. And once its finished, the Export wizard will save your network details to XML or CSV for easy analysis elsewhere.

Build 1.3.3 brings this change (Version History):

    - The application supports Microsoft Windows 10 and .NET Framework 4.6

Verdict:

It's not exactly lightweight - the installation folder is a surprisingly bulky 41MB - but EMCO MAC Address Scanner is still a handy tool which could save you a great deal of time, particularly if you're responsible for a large network

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
