Smart DNS Changer 4.5.0
A one-stop DNS, proxy and MAC address changer

Smart DNS Changer is a versatile network tool which can change your DNS server, MAC address and PC proxy settings.

The program installs quickly and easily. We were expecting adware, but there were no problems, and Smart DNS Changer was running within a few seconds.

A tabbed interface opens at the "DNS Changer". This lists several common DNS servers - Comodo, Google, Norton, Norton ConnectSafe, OpenDNS - along with a default "Automatic" option, and you can change your current settings in a couple of clicks. There are also boxes to enter DNS addresses manually, and buttons to open the Windows Network Connections window and Network Diagnostics applet.

Most of the competition stops there, but Smart DNS Changer takes the idea just a little further. A "kid shield" tab allows you to select different DNS servers for each user on a computer, and these will automatically be applied whenever they log on. This means your children could be set to use a filtered DNS, blocking non-family-friendly sites, while you're able to browse the web as normal.

A third tab provides a MAC address changer. If your internet connection is blocked because of your MAC address, choose the appropriate network adapter here and manually enter a new one (or click "Random MAC Address" to have one set automatically).

There's also a "Proxy Changer" tab, but this is by far the weakest section. There are no built-in lists of proxies, just a link to web page: you must follow that, find something suitable, then copy and paste it back into the Smart DNS Changer "Proxy" box. It works, but it's not exactly convenient.


There are plenty of similar tools around, but Smart DNS Changer scores with its ability to set a different DNS server for every PC user account. The MAC changer could also be useful. And there are lots of thoughtful touches, from helpful text descriptions about each feature, to convenient links for Windows network tools.

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.
