Simple IP Config
Quickly view and edit your Windows network settings

Simple IP Config is a tiny portable tool which makes it easy to change various network settings: your IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS servers.

You can do this from Windows, of course, but it's not exactly straightforward. In Windows 7, for instance, you might go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Centre > Change Adapter settings, before right-clicking your adapter, selecting Properties, selecting TCP/IPv4, and clicking Properties.

With Simple IP Config, though, you just run the program. It automatically displayed the details for our main internet connection. And if we wanted to, say, specify a couple of DNS servers, then it's simply a matter of typing their IP addresses into the relevant box. There are no tabs, no menu options, no ways to hide settings elsewhere: everything you need is on the same screen.

If you're still having problems connecting across your network then options to disable the (Windows) firewall, release and renew your IP address may also help.

And if for some reason you need to keep changing any of these settings, then Simple IP Config can be minimised to your system tray for easy access later.

v2.8
MAJOR CHANGES:
   Now using IP Helper API (Iphlpapi.dll) instead of WMI
   Speed improvements -> 2x faster!

MINOR CHANGES:
   Automatically fill in 255.255.255.0 for subnet
   Save last window position on exit
   Tray message when an trying to start a new instance
   Smaller exe file size
   Popup window positioning follows main window
   Allow more space for current properties
   Smoother startup process
   Get current information from disconnected adapters

BUG FIXES:
   IP address entry text scaling
   Fixed 'start in system tray' setting
   Fixed starting without toolbar icons
   Display disabled adapters
   Get current properties from disabled adapters
   Disabled adapters behavior
   Fixed hanging on setting profiles
   Fixed renaming/creating profiles issues
   Fixed additional DPI scaling issues

Verdict:

The Simple IP Config interface has a few oddities, but you'll quickly figure out how everything works, and it's certainly easier to use than burrowing deep into your TCP/IP settings.

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.
