Xlideit
A simple but well-designed image viewer

Xlideit is a well-designed and easy-to-use image viewer.

The program opens with a full screen view of your Pictures folder. There's a thumbnail bar at the bottom of the screen, small toolbars top left and to the right, but most of the screen is taken up by the first image. (If you prefer a more conventional view then you can run Xlideit in a window, maybe add a folder pane, all in a click or two.)

The core controls are natural and intuitive. Click a thumbnail and that image is displayed; you can pan around an image by clicking and dragging; spinning the mouse wheel zooms in and out; double-clicking an image displays it full screen, then toggles to a normal view; and when you're finished, pressing Esc closes down.

Xlideit provides many ways to navigate through your images. You can click a thumbnail, click "next page/ last page" buttons at either side of the thumbnail bar, click and drag on a scroll bar, press the left/ right arrow keys, Home/ End, PgUp/ PgDn. There's even a touch-like feature, where dragging an image to the far left or right acts like a swipe and moves you backwards or forwards. And so, no matter how you normally like to browse your images, you'll probably feel comfortable with Xlideit immediately.

You're not restricting to viewing images, and Xlideit has a few editing tools: crop, flip, resize and rotate, as well as tweaks for brightness, contrast, saturation, hue and gamma. You're able to convert images between a few formats, too (JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, TIF), view and clear their tags, and all these actions may be applied to multiple files in a single action.

Version 1.0.150305 brings:
    - Added support for RTF documents
    - Help file moved inside the executable file

Verdict:

Xlideit doesn't try to offer big headline features. There's no RAW image support, for example. No filters, no automatic image corrections. The core image viewer is excellent, though, intuitive and easy to use, and we'll be very interested to see how the program develops in future.

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.
