A compact but capable viewer for animated GIFs

7GIF is a small portable tool for playing back and controlling animated GIFs.

At its simplest you can just drag and drop an animated GIF onto the program, and it will display and loop the full animation immediately.

Need more control? You can zoom in and out, or resize the window and animation to suit your needs. There's an option to control the speed of the animation. Or, if you prefer, you can step backwards and forwards, one frame at a time.

7GIF also includes useful options to print frames, and save one or all of an animation's frames as separate images.

A lengthy list of configuration options makes it easy to associate the program with GIF files, for instance, or set its window to stay on top of others, for easier access.

And all this power is presented in a simple and straightforward interface which looks as though it's a part of Windows itself, clean and clear, without any nag screens or adware, or even as much as a "Donate" button.

Version 1.0.9 changes:
    •Optimized the start-up procedure;
    •Removed unnecessary .Net libraries;
    •The taskbar preview on Windows 7 (and newer versions) now previews only the picture area instead of the whole window of 7GIF;
    •Optimized some png resources to save weight;
    •When deleting a GIF from 7GIF, the standard Windows Recycle Bin dialog box will now appear, if it's enabled in Windows;
    •Added a new tab in the "About 7GIF" window with links to our social Networks official profiles;
    •Added the new tab "Advanced" to the "Advanced settings" window;
    •Added new ways to control the opening of a GIF and its zoom;


They may be the most basic form of animation around, but animated GIFs are still fun and useful, and 7GIF is a great way to play them back

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
