nomacs
A free cross-platform image viewer

Nomacs is an interesting cross-platform image viewer with one or two unusual features.

The program opens much like any other viewer. You can display individual files or complete folders, for instance (there's support for viewing all the main formats, including animated GIFs, multi-page TIFFs and many RAW file types). A thumbnail browser helps you manually navigate to the images you need, or you can use the Player to create an automatic slideshow.

The viewing area may be customised in various ways. You can choose to view basic details (file name, creation date, rating), metadata, histogram and more. Nomacs can run full screen, if you like, or you can reduce its opacity to leave the program very much in the background.

There are some image editing options, too: "resize", "crop", "rotate",  "Auto Adjust", "Unsharp Mask" and so on. Nothing too surprising, but they might come in useful occasionally.

What's more unusual is that multiple instances of nomacs can be connected and work together. If you've two copies of nomacs running on the same PC, say, you can synchronise them, so that when you pan or zoom on one instance, the second does exactly the same thing (very useful when you need to compare separate images).

You can do the same thing across a LAN, too, as well as transferring images from one networked computer to another.

Figuring out how to do this can be a challenge, unfortunately, as it's not even faintly obvious, and there's no help provided with the program. We were initially baffled, but fortunately there is a speedy solution: just head off for a quick look at the online help and you'll soon have everything working.

Version 3.10.2:
 

anti-aliasing improved
printing improved
print multiple pages from thumbnail preview
animiated WebP support
JPG compressed TIFFs supported
batch cropping added
PSD lib updated
new translations: Bosnian, Croation, and Serbian
Updates (Windows)

Qt 5.9.3 -> 5.11.0
OpenCV 3.3.1 -> 3.4.1

Verdict:

It could do with some more local documentation (or indeed any), but overall nomacs is a good-looking and capable image viewer with some interesting features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.71

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 2.18.71

- Group admins can now choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. Open "Group Info" > tap "Group Settings". Non-admins will still be able to read messages and respond privately by tapping "Message Admin".
- You can now easily notify people when you change your phone number. Tap "Settings" > "Account" > "Change Number". You can select which contacts or chats you would like to notify.
