Photo Browser
A powerful free image viewer

Photo Browser is a powerful image viewer, once a commercial product but now freeware.

The program opens by displaying the first image in your Pictures folder. There are no toolbars, menus or anything else to get in the way, but if you hover the mouse over the window then back/ forward/ play (slideshow) buttons appear (or you can use left/ right arrow and similar keyboard shortcuts).

File format support is relatively basic at JPG, JP2, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIF/TIFF, TGA, PCX, ICO. Although Photo Browser makes up for this by handling a range of RAW formats: DNG, CRW, CR2, RAW, NEF, PEF, RAF, SRF, SR2, ARW.

Right-clicking the window allows you to change View Mode ("fit to window" or "original size plus a zoom factor"), launch the magnifier (zoom in on any area of the image), rotate the image left or right, or apply a few editing options (resize, crop, tilt, and tweak brightness/ contrast/ gamma/ saturation/ sharpness).

A thumbnail browser and favourites system makes it easy to navigate your hard drive.

The browser's "Extras" menu adds a couple of other bonus features. Batch processing tools resize, rename or add watermarks to your selected photos, while the Export option creates PDF-based contact sheets to help keep them organised.

Version 3.2.1 (Changelog):
    - Bugfix release: fixed a null reference exception and a memory leak in the GongShell.dll library

Verdict:

Photo Browser's interface isn't always comfortable to use, but its wide RAW file format support is a plus, the editing tools are reasonable and we like the PDF contact sheets, too.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.11

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.11

- Fixed an issue on iOS 7 where checkmarks may not appear on messages.
