Find and monitor your external IP

TrueIP is a small free tool which can discover your external IP address, display it in various ways and alert you when it changes.

On launch the program adds an icon to your system tray. Hovering your mouse cursor over this displays a tooltip with your current external IP.

You can also display the IP by double-clicking the icon, or right-clicking it and selecting "Quick Information".

Right-clicking the icon and selecting "Full Information" displays your external IP, local IP, MAC address, host name and more.

An Options dialog enables launching the program at startup, using a different source to retrieve your address (the default is myip.dnsomatic.com), how often to check the address (every 10 minutes by default), and more.

If it's important to know when your address changes, you can have it displayed in a tray notification, sent in an email, saved to an FTP server, or just logged to a file for analysis later.


There's no need to install software to find your external IP software-- just entering IP at Google or visiting a site like whatismyipaddress.com will reveal all. But the program's logging and notification tools are handy, and although TrueIP requires installation it takes minimal resources and won't get in your way.

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.
