glogg
View and search huge text files

Glogg is a free tool for browsing and searching even the largest or most complex log files.

The program reads source files directly from disk, and doesn't load them entirely into memory. This improves speed as glogg doesn't have to open a document in full before it's displayed, and also means there's no limit on the size of files you can view.

At its simplest, you could just use glogg as a plain text viewer. Open a log, browse the file, and the program grabs and displays new log lines as they're added.

There's also a search box. Enter a plain text keyword, a regular or extended regular expression and any matches are highlighted in the main window and displayed in a separate pane.

Enable "auto-refresh" and glogg also reruns searches as lines are added, ensuring the matches are always up-to-date.

Glogg also supports "filters", essentially canned searches which change text colour in the document window. You could have lines containing "error" displayed as black on red, for instance, while lines containing "success" are black on green.

Verdict:

A nicely balanced log viewer, easy to use and not overloaded with complex features, but also powerful enough to give demanding users the key features they need.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.41

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 2.19.41 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
