My Daily Wallpaper
Automatically download new desktop wallpaper every time you log on

My Daily Wallpaper is a compact, portable tool which can change your wallpaper automatically, or on demand.

The program accesses its images from DeviantART.com, which means there's plenty of choice (more than 132,000 wallpapers as we write). You won't like them all, of course, but My Daily Wallpaper can be restricted to your favourite image categories: Landscapes, Minimalistic, Animals and Plants, Fractals and so on.

If you like complete control over what's happening then you can use My Daily Wallpaper as a simple browser. Open the program's main window, click the "Download next group of random wallpapers" button, and it'll download and display four sample images from your preferred categories. If you like one, click its "Set as wallpaper" button; if you don't, click "Download" again and check the next four.

Or, if you're happy to let My Daily Wallpaper decide, check the "Autostart with Windows and download a new wallpaper" box. Then, every time you log on, the program will launch, grab a new image and automatically set it as your desktop background. (Although if you don't like the image then you can always download another by choosing the appropriate option from My Daily Wallpaper's system tray icon.)

And that's essentially it, although the program does have a few useful settings on offer, too. Click "Configuration" and you can define your minimum wallpaper resolution, set up proxy options and decide whether you'd like to keep copies of your downloaded images, amongst other items.

Version 7.00:
    - new feature: add a local images directory. Now you can use your personal pics as random wallpapers!
    - fixed rare bug: cannot use a wallpaper in case the path does not contains two slashes
    - fixed some rare crash
    - fixed the error reporting engine
    - various code fix and bug fix

Verdict:

A simple but likeable and easy-to-use wallpaper changer

Version 6.43 has changed

Posted by: John Smith, 21 August 2013 21:25

I downloaded and installed version 6.43 and noticed the following differences from the product review:

1. There is an installer that runs when launched that prompts for the installation of the "Full" free version.

2. To register for this full free version you will need to either install one of the 3rd party toolbars bundled with the software or donate.

3. It does allow you the option to "skip" (even though the SKIP button is grayed out, you can still click it) the install of the 3rd party toolbar and change of your browser homepage.

4. This version has tons more categories than seen in the screen shot and the UI is a little different.

I'm assuming that the original review was for an older version of the product. I just wanted everyone to be aware of the changes in the latest version 6.43.

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
