DisplayFusion 7.1.0
Enhance your multi-monitor setup with DisplayFusion

Adding a second or third monitor to your computer can help to significantly increase productivity by making it easy to switch between open applications and keep an eye on several programs at the same time. Other then requiring a dualhead or second graphics card, Windows has no additional requirements if you want to use multiple monitors, but support for two or more displays does not really extend much beyond expanding the desktop to span all available monitors.

Install DisplayFusion and you will be provided with a number of additional features and options including the ability to use one large wallpaper to span multiple monitors, or to use difference backgrounds for each. Program titlebars can be furnished with extra buttons including quick links to move a given window to another monitor.

There are also pre-defined keyboard shortcuts that can be used to move windows, tile them or span them across all available monitors. These might sound like small enhancements to bring to a multi-monitor computer, but after spending just a few minutes working with these additional options, you will quickly discover just how useful they are.

Upgrade to the Pro version of the program and even more extra options are available. You can view a copy of the Windows taskbar on each monitor and opt to display only taskbar buttons relating to the programs that are running on a particular monitor. Desktop backgrounds can be pulled in from Flickr and rotated on a schedule, and program windows can be automatically snapped to the edges of other running programs. You can also customise keyboard shortcuts to suite your requirements.

DisplayFusion 7.1.0 highlights include:

- Change: Wallpaper images can now be moved up to 999,999 pixels, not limited to 10,000
- Change: Improved Scripted Function downloader, now with function updates (highlighted in yellow in the list)
- Change: More than 30 new scripted function helpers
- Fix: GPO support improvements
- Fix: Much improved "Rollup Window to TitleBar" Function, better compatibility and performance
- Fix: Resolved some minor issues
- Fix: Hook improvements
- Fix: Performance and stability improvements

Verdict:

DisplayFusion brings a host of extra feature to users of multiple monitors - features it could be argued should have been built into Windows as standard.

There are more friendly, more compact free apps to do this.

Display Fusion adds all sorts of hooks to Explorer, has a meaningless intro screen, and the GUI, while comprehensive, isn't actually as useful as it looks. What turned me off completely was when I selected an unsupported resolution (dumb, I know, but why was the option there?) the only way to get the monitor back was to hard reboot.

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.
