Miranda NG
Miranda NG is a powerful multi-protocol IM client

Miranda is likely to be a familiar name to anyone who uses instant messaging software. It is a tool that has been around for a number of years, and gained quite a following thanks to the fact that is made it possible to chat with people on different networks – MSN users could chat with AIM users with a single application.

This is still very much the core or Miranda, but development has started to slow down to a crawl. Because of this, a new branch of the IM client was released, Miranda NG (or New Generation). Development here is on-going and much faster than in the past.

There is no installation involved with Miranda NG, so it can be easily copied to a USB drive so that it can be used on different computers. This is a great option for anyone who frequently finds that they are using different machines or anyone who is a fan of portable software in general.

This is not a pick-up-and-play piece of software; there is a degree of configuration involved. Depending on the IM protocols you want to make use of, you may well find that you need to download add-ons before you can even get started. By default you will find support for AIM, GG, ICQ, IRC, Jabber, MSN and Yahoo, but there are many other protocols that can be added free of charge.

Despite the fact that this is still a sub-1.0 version number, Miranda NG is still remarkably stable and incredibly fast. Portability is a real boon, but it is the apps extendibility that makes it really interesting.

Version 0.95.8.1 is a bug fix release.

Verdict:

Fast, portable, extendable and well maintained. This is a marvellous IM client well worth checking out.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
