Remote Mouse Server in Windows
Once set up, Remote Mouse Server sits unobtrusively out of the way.

Your mouse – even if wireless – isn’t always the most practical thing to use to control your computer. It’s perfect if you’re sat at a desk, but these days more and more people find themselves slightly removed from their PC or Mac – often because it’s been hooked up to the TV, typically to watch video or internet TV.

If the idea of hooking up your laptop via cable to your TV, then faffing about on the floor trying to set things up doesn’t appeal, imagine being able to control everything from the comfort of your chair using your smartphone or tablet.

Remote Mouse is a solution for Android users – this is the server part of the software, a tiny download that, once installed, sits quietly in your Notification area or menu bar, ready to leap into action the moment you install and launch the Android app.

Configuration is minimal. By default, the app will only run when launched from the Start > All Programs menu (Windows) or Applications folder (Mac), but you can either right-click its Taskbar icon and choose Auto run (Windows) or manually add it to the Login Items (Mac) to have it always running in the background.

Once set up, fire up the Android app, click Auto Connect and you’re able to control your computer – both mouse and keyboard – remotely. Use it like a touchpad, with support for multi-finger swiping for scrolling, moving between windows and more.

It’s a neat and effective way to control your computer remotely, with one major downside that isn’t advertised on the website: after a few minutes, you’ll see a nag screen pop up on your computer asking you to register the server software. It’s only $2.99, but seeing as there are other, free alternatives out there, it’s a deal breaker in our view.

Note: there is no uninstall utility provided with the program – just delete the MouseServer folder to remove the application. 

Verdict:

Perfectly competent piece of software let down by the lack of warning that you’re expected to pay for it after three day’s use.

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
