VLC Media Player
Use VLC Media Player to watch a wide variety of video formats on your iPad

The iPad's large touch screen is crying out to be used for watching movies, but the built in support for video formats is a little limited. This is something VLC Media Player aims to correct by offering support for huge range of formats including DivX and Xvid.

As there are so many different video formats available, when it comes to watching movies on a Mac or PC, all you need to do Is ensure that the relevant codec is installed. The installation of codecs is not possible in the iPad, so the emergence of VLC Media Player opens up a new world of files formats.

The media player includes support for subtitles - all you need to do is ensure that the name of the subtitles file matches that of the video file and the text will be automatically displayed. Playing videos is a simple matter of connecting the app to iTunes using file sharing and selecting the videos you'd like to work with.

Movies are then displayed in VLC Media Player in a way that closely resembles iBooks for easy browsing. The app represents a great way to watch a wide range of different vide formats on your portable Apple device without the need for time-consuming file conversion.

What's New in Version 2.7.8

∙ Fixed listing of playlist files on remote shares
∙ Fixed downloading some media from http servers
∙ Fixed start index of multiple media playback in OneDrive
∙ Fixed playback of XDCAM media files (requires a 64bit iOS device)

Verdict:

Far and away the best media player available for the iPad, VLC Media Player is an essential installation.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.17

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 2.16.17

• Introducing WhatsApp video calling. With free video calls, you can have face-to-face chats with your friends and family around the world. Data charges may apply. (requires iOS 8+)
• Search for the perfect animated GIF, right from within WhatsApp. Just tap Attach — Photo/Video Library and tap on the GIF search button on the bottom left to get started.
