An interesting portable image viewer with some unusual extras

NexusImage is a lightweight, portable and easy-to-use image viewer.

Launch the program and you can browse straight to an image in the folder you'd like to view. At this point we weren't too impressed; file format support here is limited (jpg, png, bmp, gif, ico, tiff, wmf, emf, jp2, j2k), and there's no Explorer-like thumbnail browser. Once you've chosen an image, any other pictures in the same folder are displayed in a scrollable strip on the right-hand side of the screen, but this is only really useful when browsing folders with small numbers of images.

Get past these issues, though, and NexusImage does have a few points in its favour. The program can rotate and zoom in on a particular image, for instance, but a "smooth stretch" setting helps to minimise any pixellation or image artefacts as it works, so your pictures look better even at the highest magnifications.

Open the program's Exif window and you'll be able to view the metadata of each image as it's displayed.

There's an option to set the current image as your desktop background. You can add a caption to an image to help you remember something about it (this doesn't affect the picture itself, it's just for use in NexusImage). And there are shortcut keys for everything, so once you've mastered these then the program is very quick and easy to use.

Version brings:

•Improved: Keyborad Shortcuts
 Previous Image: Down or Right arrow
 Next Image: Up or Left arrow
 Zoom In: + or Z
 Zoom Out: - or Shift + Z

•Added: Show in Explorer
•Added: Flip Horizontal/Vertical
•Added: Edit with function. You can add editors and open an image you are viewing with one of those editors.
 Shift + Click an editor if you want to edit or delete an editor.
•Added: Show/Hide StatusBar function. You can view images without titlebar and statusbar.
•Improved: Menu structure changed.


NexusImage can't compete with the "do everything" image viewers; if you need support for hundreds of file formats and an industry-strength thumbnail browser then you should probably look elsewhere. The program does just fine for more basic purposes, though - it's lightweight, portable, looks good and has some convenient bonus features

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.
