JPEG Saver 4.13.1
A very configurable slideshow screensaver

JPEG Saver is a screensaver which displays a slideshow of your own digital images. Windows has its own "My Pictures", "Photos" or "Photo Gallery" screensaver which can do something similar, of course, but JPEG Saver is far more powerful.

The program doesn't just support one source folder, for instance. You can add as many as you need. There's an option to include subfolders, as well. And you can have JPEG Saver select images based on their width, height, size, created/ modified date, and more.

Pictures will then be displayed in your preferred on-screen position, maybe with custom colour or gamma settings, resized as required, with a range of possible backgrounds (single colours, gradients, images, more), optionally in a different screen mode (you can choose both resolution and refresh rate).

And there's still more. Like 72 excellent transitions. The ability to include "extras" on the display, like a logo, clock, image information, or track data from popular media players. You can even run the program interactively, like a slideshow, so for example pressing the left or right arrow will display the previous or next image.

This can seem a little overwhelming, at least if you go exploring every feature. Even something as basic as defining the slideshow background gives you 13 possible options, each of which can have up to six further settings.

Fortunately, the default settings work just fine. All you have to do initially is point JPEG Saver at your source folders, and that's enough to immediately enjoy many of its benefits. Everything else can be added or tweaked as required, whenever you'd like to customise the screen saver a little further.

Version 4.13.1 brings:
    - A new "alphanumeric" image selection mode which displays files sorted by name, date and time (folders are ignored)
    - New "image average" and "image edge average" methods for setting background colour
    - Folders tab GUI redesigned to improve usability

Verdict:

A professional and very configurable screensaver with a stack of essential options.

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.
