Track what's happening on single PCs or across your network with this powerful inventory tool

Spiceworks is a versatile tool which provides everything you need to map your network, monitor important events on network devices, audit what's installed on local and remote PCs, troubleshoot network problems, and even (slightly bizarrely) run an IT Help Desk. All for no charge at all.

Once installed the program automatically scans your network, for instance, providing a detailed map of all your devices. And it'll then repeat the process every day, showing you new hardware and any software changes. (And while we keep talking about networks here, this can be useful even on a stand-alone PC, as you'll have a record of the software you've installed or removed.)

Spiceworks can alert you to problems on your local system and across the network, too. Does a computer have no antivirus package installed? Is a key server offline? Is one of your systems running short on drive space? Maybe a printer is running short of ink? Spicework's Monitors can track all kinds of important events.

And all this is presented in a browser-based dashboard which can be further customised with many other useful widgets. You can get reports on Microsoft Security Bulletins, for instance, or the latest software patches; an RSS Feed makes it easy to keep up-to-date with the latest news from your favourite sites; and if you are using the program in a business environment then there's a whole lot more, from Microsoft Exchange support to Active Directory integration.

Verdict:

Spiceworks is an excellent free network inventory and management package. Businesses will get the most from the program, but it can be useful everywhere, even on stand-alone PCs.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
