NETGEAR Genie
Manage and extend your network with this free tool

NETGEAR Genie is an interesting free tool which can help you to manage, monitor and extend your network.

Despite the name, the program isn't just for NETGEAR users. Whoever made your router, you can use the program to check your internet connection, run a speed test, view and be notified of other devices on your network.

There's also convenient access to common network tools like Ping, TraceRoute or DNS Lookups, and you may even be able to use the program to add AirPrint compatibility to a regular printer, so you can print wirelessly from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

If you are using a supported NETGEAR router, though (see the full list here), life gets better still.

You'll be able to set up and configure Live Parental Controls, manage your wireless connections, remotely control all media in your home from your smartphone or tablet with MyMedia, or just simply view and tweak your router settings directly, no browser required - very convenient.

Verdict:

If you have a supported router then NETGEAR Genie provides a lot of very useful functionality (and it's not too bad even if you're using something else). Worth a look.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• 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.
