Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Monitor and test your wireless network with Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector

Equipped with a laptop fitted with a wireless network adaptor, you are free to surf the internet from a huge number of locations around the world. But whether you are out and about or connected to your own wireless network, problems can arise and you may be interested in finding out about the status of your connection.

Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is a free tool that can be used to search for wireless networks that are nearby. When you are away from home, this provides a handy way to track down the nearest connection by tracking signal strength. At home, the signal strength monitor can also be used to test your own wireless network, checking its range and testing for blackspots.

The program interface is divided into four panels, with the radar giving an indication of nearby networks based on signal strength. The radar readout is something of a gimmick, but provides an easy way to determine relative signal strength at a glance. The Connection panel displays information about the network connection that is currently being used such as signal strength and the IP address that has been assigned.

The Networks panel displays more detailed information about any wireless networks that have been detected to supplement the data in the radar. This panel also provides access to the Locate Mode that can be used to home in on a particular wireless network. The final panel show details of the wireless signal history so you can see how stable your connection is over time.
 

Verdict:

With a wealth of network information and a number of troubleshooting tools, Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is a valuable addition to any laptop.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
