NetScanTools Basic 2.50
A simple but convenient set of network troubleshooting tools

NetScanTools Basic is a collection of network troubleshooting tools.

The program organises its features into four main categories: "DNS", "Ping and Traceroute", "Scanning" and "Whois".

Open the DNS category and you'll find three tests on offer. The program can run a query to display the IP address associated with a domain name; it can find the IP addresses for your own network interfaces; and a "Test Default DNS" option will check the specific domain, and then report on your DNS server's reply code, whether it supports recursion, and the response time.

The "Ping and Traceroute" section contains tools to quickly check whether a particular domain name or IP address is available. The most interesting option here is the "Graphical Ping", which plots response performance over time.

Clicking "Scanning Tools" displays a very basic network scanner.

And the "Whois" section includes a tool to help you find out who owns a particular internet domain.

Overall, NetScanTools Basic looks professional and generally works very well. It lives up to its "Basic" name, though, being quite short on functionality. If you're a networking novice then the program could prove useful, but if you're more experienced, maybe have already tried plenty of troubleshooting toolkits, then there's really nothing of interest here.

Verdict:

NetScanTools Basic is a well-designed set of tools, but rather too limited - for networking beginners only

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.20

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.
