Bing Wallpaper (simple)
A stripped-back Bing image > wallpaper tool

The original Bing Wallpaper is an open-source application which sets your wallpaper as Bing's image of the day, then runs in the background, offers an image-related search, a forced update feature and more.

Some people might need all this, but it seemed like overkill to us. We suspect most people will like the wallpaper-setting, but simply don't need yet another background process and system tray icon.

As it's an open-source project, we downloaded the code, stripped out the system tray and startup bits, leaving only the core wallpaper function.

The end result is BingWallpaperOnce.exe. Run this, it downloads Bing's image of the day, sets it as your wallpaper, and exits immediately. No notifications, no UI, no extras at all.

Add the program to your startup folder and it'll update the wallpaper every time you reboot. Or create a scheduled task to run it once a day, maybe.

Please note: all the credit belongs to the original author, we've done nothing more than remove lots of his hard work. It's also possible we've removed too much and introduced a bug, so if you run into problems, try the original instead.

Verdict:

A stripped-down version of Bing Wallpaper which sets your wallpaper only, without running a  process in the background or offering any other services.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.30

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 2.19.30 

• 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.
