TightVNC Portable Edition
A portable version of TightVNC, a bandwidth-efficient way of viewing and interacting with the desktop of one computer on another.

VNC - virtual network computing - is a method of access the desktop of one computer on another computer using a network connection. While the original VNC worked well over local networks, the amount of data to be transferred could seriously impact performance over slower connections. This even applies to current fast ADSL and cable connections because of the limited uplink speed form the computer you are accessing. TightVNC takes the standard VNC protocols and adds compression for faster use over slower networks.

Having remote access to another computer has several uses such accessing your home computer from work (ask permission before trying the other way round), remote administration or fault fixing. TightVNC works with standard VNC too, it enables the compression of the computer it is talking to only uses standard VNC, and you can use that slower connection to install TightVNC on the emote computer before reconnecting if you wish. VNC is a completely open and free protocol, so it is implemented on all popular operating systems, and the same is true of TightVNC. When you cannot install TightVNC to the computer you are using, this portable version is just what you need. Once installed to a USB stick, it runs entirely from that stick and saves its settings and history back to the stick, meaning you can run it on any Windows computer without administrator rights.

Verdict:

A portable version of the fastest and most flexible option for remote access to a desktop.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
