Microsoft Script Explorer for Windows PowerShell 1.1.2.15
Quickly find useful PowerShell scripts and resources

Microsoft Script Explorer is a handy tool for locating PowerShell scripts, snippets and similar resources.

You can use the program as a simple keyword-based search engine. Type "Outlook", say, and it'll check Bing Search, the TechNet Script Centre, PoshCode.org and your local file system, before returning any hits. And clicking anything useful displays the relevant document in a preview pane (there's no need to open a separate browser window, although there's the option to do that if you prefer).

If you need to refine the search then you can choose to, say, only search TechNet or PoshCode, or focus solely on SQL Server scripts, just in a click or two.

Still can't find what you need? Click Browse Categories and the program lists categories like Desktop Management, Group Policy, Hardware, Multimedia, Networking and more. Expanding Networking, say, reveals 10 more subcategories. And choosing any of these will display multiple matching articles with a quick summary: as before, just clicking one will then download and display the content for you.

If even that's not enough, click Explore Community Resources and you'll be able to browse TechNet Wiki's PowerShell Survival Guide, an excellent set of documents with valuable information for everyone from beginners to PowerShell experts (although this does display each page in a browser window, unfortunately, which makes it a little less useful).

Verdict:

Whether you're a PowerShell newbie or an old hand, Microsoft Script Explorer is a handy tool which could help you uncover new scripts and resources

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.
