Lansweeper
Quickly uncover what's happening on your network with this professional inventory tool

Lansweeper is a comprehensive audit tool which allows you to quickly scan all the systems on your network (Windows 2000 clients or later are supported) from one central location, then view details on their hardware and installed software.

This is a professional tool which can handle huge networks, but does require SQL Server (or Express) to manage its database. If that's not installed you don't have to worry, as Lansweeper will download and install SQL Server 2008 Express Edition for you, but this will extend the setup process by quite some time (it's a 100MB download, and although configuration is automatic, it takes a while). Just go away and leave your PC to it, it'll finish eventually.

Lansweeper is then accessed via your browser, where you'll soon be browsing the large number of options and reports on offer. Many of these are only available during the initial 20-day trial period, but when that expires you'll still be able to view a detailed report on each networked system.

The computer report includes information like the operating system, CPU, video card, sound card, BIOS, RAM, network interfaces and hard drive details, for instance. There's a long list of installed applications and their version numbers. The system can extract a few product keys, though the list of supported applications here is a little odd (on our system it reported keys for Windows 7, Office 2010, and, uh, an ancient copy of Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun). And you can manually edit entries to, say, record a support URL or phone number for a particular computer or network device, so over time the database becomes a genuinely useful record of your networked systems and all their related information.

Please note, Lansweeper comes in many editions, from the basic free version, to the $299 Premium edition and upwards. Check the product website for more details on which version does what and the various licensing options.

Version 5.2.0.31:
    • Changed: Macintosh number of processors.
    • Fixed: Devicetester crash.
    • Fixed: Problem when deleting scanning server.
    • Fixed: 'Invalid WMI query' while deploying.
    • Fixed: 'Automatically make non-active computers active' bug while rescanning if the host resolves to an incorrect but existing IP address.
    • Fixed: Several small cosmetic issues.
    • Fixed: Warranty lock disappears when adding date.
    • Fixed: Improper character decoding in report parameters.

Changelog

Verdict:

Lansweeper is a powerful, professional network auditing tool which comes packed with features. The browser-based interface means these aren't always as easy to find as we'd like, but good documentation tells you what you need to know

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.
