Use a different resolution for each user with Carroll

When more than one person uses a computer, it is often the case that there will be disagreements about the settings that are in place. The easiest way to get around this problem is to set up individual user accounts for everyone – this not only enables everyone to store their file separately, but also means that each user can configure their own desktop settings such as the background they would like to use.

One setting that has to be the same for all users, however, is screen resolution. Different tasks may require the use of different screen resolutions, or users may just have differing preferences. While there is nothing to stop you from manually changing resolution through the Control Panel each time you log into your account, Carroll can take care of this for you automatically.

This small, free utility run automatically with Windows when you log into your user account and you can choose the resolution at which your display should be running. All other users are free to do exactly the same so everyone is able to use the settings they feel most comfortable with. This sounds great in theory, but Carroll is slightly flawed.

The vast majority of monitors currently in use are TFT screens, and these all have a native resolution. While it is possible to use different resolutions on a panel that has been designed for a 1440 x 900 resolution, things are not going to look good. The app is a nice ideal, but in reality is a somewhat impractical and a little outdated.

Version: 1.24

Verdict:

A nice idea, but one that is ultimately flawed, Carroll is likely to result in little more than a blurry display for most users.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
