EMCO Network Software Scanner 1.1.5
Audit the software installed on your network from one central location

EMCO Network Software Scanner is a handy management tool which can collect details on the applications installed across your network.

The program doesn't require any special clients to be installed on your network PCs for it to run, and it doesn't use WMI. You will need to provide it with the credentials for administrative access (so you'll need an administrator account on each system), but with that in hand all you need to do is point EMCO Network Software Scanner at a group of PCs (or let it scan everything) and leave the program to work.

Once the process is complete then you'll see the installed applications on each system, and their update status. So if some computers are missing a few key updates then it'll be very easy to spot.

The reports are also saved into a database for easy access later. And if you run the scan again a month later (for example), it's easy to compare the new results with the previous scan to see which applications have been added or uninstalled.

And although it's free, EMCO Network Software Scanner doesn't have any annoying restrictions on the size of network it'll scan: it'll work happily on networks of thousands of computers.

Version 1.1.5 brings:

Microsoft Windows 8.1 and .NET Framework 4.5.1 support

Verdict:

A capable auditing tool which could be very useful, if your network is configured suitably (check the System Requirements)

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
