PhotoView 1.4.0.0
Easily review your photo collection with this portable thumbnail browser

PhotoView is a simple portable image viewer with one or two unusual extra features.

Browsing works much like most similar tools. Click a folder in the Explorer-type pane and you'll see thumbnails of all the images it contains; clicking one of these will display it in the preview pane.

The viewer is more thorough than most, though. Turn on the Magnifier (View > Magnifier), for example, and you'll get a resizable rectangle which you can drag over any part of the image to see a magnified view (far more convenient than always zooming in and scrolling, though you can do that as well).

There's also easy viewing of image EXIF data, and oddly the program makes it look as though you can edit this: you can put your own name in as the photographer, say. But for some reason any modification you make isn't saved.

A histogram gives you a quick look at the image colour balance, and you're able to apply a few basic manipulations and filters - flip, rotate, invert, greyscale, equalise - before saving the results in a variety of formats (BMP, GIF, TIF, JPG, PNG).

It's all fairly basic, but well presented, and perhaps the program's main selling point is its extreme portability: the authors say it should run on every version of Windows from 95 through to Windows Server 2008 R2.

Verdict:

PhotoView can be a little slow to display large JPEGs, but otherwise this is a straightforward and easy-to-use image viewer

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
