CodeTwo QR Code Desktop Reader 1.0.0
Quickly read QR Codes on the Windows desktop

CodeTwo QR Code Desktop Reader is a simple tool which allows you to work with QR Codes on your PC.

QR Codes? They're the characteristic blocks of square dots which you'll often see on ads, websites, packaging and more. Mobile phones can interpret them with ease (once you've figured out the appropriate app to use, anyway), and QR Code Desktop Reader now brings the same ability to Windows.

The program makes it easy to grab a code from your screen, for instance. If you see one within your browser, say, switch to QR Code Desktop Reader, click "From screen", draw around the code, and the program will display whatever text it contains.

QR Code Desktop Reader can also open and read QR Codes stored in all the main graphics formats (BMP, GIF, PNG, JPG, TIFF).

And whatever text the code contains may then be copied to the clipboard, or saved to a file, with a click.

It's mildly annoying that such a very simple program (just a single executable, essentially) requires installation. Making it portable would have been more convenient.

We can't complain too much, though: QR Code Desktop Reader is free, easy to use, and a very handy addition to any desktop, and that's good enough for us.

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.
