Wireless Network Watcher
Quickly check all the devices and computers that are currently connected to your wireless (and, maybe, wired) network

Wireless Network Watcher is a compact NirSoft tool which can scan your network (wired, as well as wireless, despite the program's name), and report on everything that's currently connected.

For every device and computer it uncovers, Wireless Network Watcher will list its IP address, device name, MAC address, network adapter, and (sometimes) an additional description that may tell you what the device actually is ("Your Router", say).

And the report can be saved for future reference as a plain text, XML, CSV or HTML file.

.As well as being useful for basic inventory purposes, Wireless Network Watcher can also be a handy security tool.

Click Options > Background Scan, then Options > Beep On New Device, and the program will regularly scan your system, looking for new devices (like a neighbour trying to make use of your internet connection, for instance).

And the Advanced Options dialog (press F9) allows you to customise this even further, setting the frequency you need for the background scan, and optionally telling Wireless Network Watcher to launch a particular program whenever a new device is detected.

Version 1.97:

- Added 'Automatic Sort On Every Scan' option. When it's turned on, Wireless Network Watcher sorts the devices list on every scan, according to the last sorting you chose by clicking the column header.

Verdict:

Wireless Network Watcher is another compact NirSoft tool which delivers just what you expect, quickly providing useful information on everything connected to your network

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.2

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.
