RECOIL
View retro graphics formats: Atari, Amiga, Apple II, ZX81, more

RECOIL - Retro Computer Image Library - is a free viewer of pictures in the native formats of Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Apple II, Atari 8-bit, Atari Portfolio, Atari ST, Atari Falcon, BBC Micro, Commodore 16, Commodore 64, Macintosh 128K, MSX, SAM Coupé, ZX81 and ZX Spectrum computers.

The main program, RECOILWin, is a simple GUI viewer. Open it, choose a folder with your pictures and it displays the first. You can then move from one picture to the next, zoom in or out, and - if you'd like to use the image elsewhere - copy pictures to the clipboard or save them as PNGs.

A bundled thumbnail provider for Windows Explorer means you're able to see previews of supported formats without loading RECOILWin directly.

There are also plugins for many other image viewing and processing tools (Paint.NET, ImageMagick, XnView, Imagine), along with a portable command line image converter, an HTML 5-based viewer, an Android application and more.

Please note, the core RECOIL engine is available separately in the "Formats" IrfanView plugin, so if you've installed that already you probably don't need the stand-alone build.

Version 3.5.0 (Changelog):

New Windows 10 port.

Decoding additional variants of: BEAM, IFF, SC2, SC5, SC7, SCA, SR5, SR7, XIMG.

New formats:

Amiga: TVPaint (DEEP)
Atari Falcon: TIMG
MSX: Maki-chan Graphics (MAG, MAX)
NEC PC-88: Maki-chan Graphics (MAG)
NEC PC-98: Maki-chan Graphics (MAG, MKI), XLD4 (Q4)
PlayStation: TIM
Sharp X68000: PIC
ZX Spectrum: ULAplus (SCR)

Verdict:

The RECOILWin viewer is very basic, but it's hard to complain - this is a great collection of tools for viewing images which nothing else can handle.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
