Alternate QR Code Generator
Generate text and link QR codes from your desktop

QR (Quick Response) codes are a type of matrix barcode, commonly used to store text and links, which can be scanned and read by smartphone apps. They're now appearing just about everywhere, and if you want to join in then Alternate QR Code Generator makes it very easy to create codes of your own.

At a minimum, you can just enter the text you'd like to include, and click "Generate" to see the appropriate code.

There are also a range of options which could help to improve the code's reliability. Increasing pixel width or error correction level, for example, will make the code larger, but also ensure that it can sustain more damage while still being readable. You can change the background and foreground colours, too, which also may be useful in some situations (if the code is being printed on coloured paper, say).

Verdict:

Alternate QR Code Generator is an extremely simple tool which can quickly produce codes with its default settings, but also provides enough tweaks to cope with a range of different situations.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.13

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.
