WifiHistoryView
View all the wireless networks you've accessed, ever(-ish)

WifiHistoryView is a portable tool which displays a history of your system's connections to/ disconnections from wireless networks.

For every event, WifiHistoryView displays the date and time it occurred, the network name (SSID), profile name, network adapter name, MAC address, BSSID of the router/Access Point, and more.

This information is presented in the usual NirSoft table, where it can be sorted or saved as a text or HTML report in a click or two.

It's also possible to extract the same data from a remote PC on your network.

Please note, WifiHistoryView extracts its data directly from a Windows event log. If you rarely connect to wireless networks, it may give you a complete history; if there are a lot of events, you might lose some of the oldest; if the log has been cleared for some reason, you'll see nothing at all.

Version 1.45:

WifiHistoryView now reads archive log files when connecting a remote computer.
Added 'Read archive log files' option in 'Advanced Options' window (You can turn it off if you don't want to read archive files).
Added option to read the log files from shadow copy (Requires to run WifiHistoryView as administrator). In shadow copies you might find older log records that don't exist in your current log files.
Fixed bug: 'Copy Selected Items' worked improperly when setting the 'Unicode/Ascii Save Mode' to 'Always UTF-8'.

Verdict:

WifiHistoryView isn't going to be an essential app for most people, but we can think of a few forensic applications, perhaps running it on a laptop to see where it was located at different dates and times.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

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 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
