FastPreview 4.1 (32-bit)
View image previews and metadata from Explorer

FastPreview is a free graphics tool which makes it easy to view images and access their metadata from Explorer.

The program adds a preview of your image to Explorer's right-click menu, perhaps useful with a folder Details view (although of course you could open Explorer's Preview pane).

FastPreview also adds an "FP" tab to the Explorer image Properties dialog, which is then filled with every scrap of metadata it can find (Adobe eXtensible Metadata Language (XMP), Exif and IPTC tags are supported). There's so much information that finding what you need can sometimes be a problem, but when you do need the full metadata picture then it will be helpful.

You also get a simple image viewer, although this is probably the weakest part of the package. It provides right-click options to choose your preferred resampling method or display the standard Explorer context menu, but otherwise you're probably better off with the standard Windows viewer.

Version 4.1 brings:
    * FIX: Crasher with transparent backgrounds (#4)
    * FIX: Some meta data fields were omitted (#2)
    * NEW: Better keyboard handling (#5, #6)
    * FIX: Some settings were not properly recalled (#8)


FastPreview's image viewer is weak, but the context menu preview works well, and if you also need full access to image metadata then the program could be worth a look

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.
