Real VNC Connect Home 6.2.0
Access your PC from almost any internet-enabled device, anywhere in the world

VNC Connect is a remote access tool that allows you to securely access and control your PC over the internet.

There are plenty of free ways to do this - including this VNC Connect Home Edition - but the Professional Edition includes many additional features that you may think are worth the purchase price.

One-Port HTTP & VNC delivers easier setup, for instance, by allowing Java and VNC sessions to run through a single TCP port.

File transfer is a particularly valuable extra. One major reason for logging in to your home PC in the first place is that you need access to some important file, and VNC Connect Home Edition allows this without having to figure out some additional workaround.

There's also printing: in just a few clicks you can access a document on your home PC, and send it to a local printer for a quick copy.

Enhanced security features include VNC server authentication, with 2048-bit RSA keys used to verify your identity, and up to 256-bit AES encryption for each VNC session.

And if you need to access multiple PCs remotely then you'll appreciate the integrated VNC address book , which stores the shortcuts for all your VNC servers in one convenient location.

Note that Real VNC Connect Home is free for personal-use only, limited to 5 devices and 3 users.

What's new in 6.2.0 (see release notes for more information):

- NEW: VNC Connect is now available in Brazilian Portuguese.
- NEW: Under Red Hat Linux distributions, VNC Server in Virtual Mode can now utilize the version of the Xorg server running on the system, rather than the out-of-date version built-in to Xvnc. Desktop environments such as Gnome 3 and modern applications and extensions will likely be compatible out-of-the-box. See how to set this up.
- The VNC Connect download now consists just of VNC Server and supporting programs, for computers you are licened to control. VNC Viewer is no longer bundled. You are free to download VNC Viewer to as many computers and devices you want to control from as you like. Installation changes.
- VNC Viewer for macOS is now a disk image (DMG) that you can install by dragging it to the Applications folder.
- In VNC Viewer, you can now drag-and-drop a computer onto a label in the sidebar to assign that label to the computer. To create a new label, right-click on the Address book.
- You can set the QueryOfferViewOnly VNC Server parameter to FALSE to remove the view-only option from the prompt shown when VNC Viewer users are attempting to connect (leaving just the reject and accept options).

Verdict:

A powerful remote access tool with many time-saving features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
