QuickViewer
A very speedy image viewer

QuickViewer is a portable image viewer which shows and navigates pictures with the maximum possible speed.

Supported formats include JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, TGA, ICO, WEBP, DDS and assorted RAW types.

The program can read archives directly, including ZIP, 7Z and RAR. There's also support for reading the comic book archives CBR and CBZ, as well as a spread viewing feature (two images at once) for the best comic-reading experience.

There are simple zoom and rotate tools, you can copy images to the clipboard, send them by email or dispatch them to the Recycle Bin.

Navigation tools include Forward/ Back, fast forward and back (jump ten images instead of one), and First/ Last. You can also display a very basic folder tree to help you move from one folder to another.

Apparently the program can create Catalogs of many thousands of images, and search them with auto-generated tags. But when we tried this the program repeatedly added multiple copies of the same images, making it less than useful. Maybe you'll be luckier.

QuickViewer does deliver in the performance department, thanks to optimisations like reading images ahead of time and making smart use of OpenGL. We tried browsing a folder of 385 images at full screen using three viewers. The regular Windows Photos app took 98 seconds to navigate the full set; IrfanView cut this to 32 seconds, but QuickViewer came top in only 17 seconds.

What's new in 1.1.2 (see release notes for more)?

'Lanczos 4 interpolation by CPU' became the original performance
add a menu 'Hide the mouse cursor on fullscreen'
When each dialog is displayed, the toggle of the closing button is enabled

bugfixed: When there was no image in the folder opened by FolderView, it was illegally terminated
on issue #80 reported by @GitHubRulesOK

Verdict:

QuickViewer lives up to its name, displaying images at very high speeds. There are issues elsewhere - there aren't many features, some don't work as you expect (spinning the mouse wheel doesn't zoom), others don't work at all - but it's not bad at all for a first release. Check it out.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

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 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
