Zoom Player 10 Free
Play CDs, DVDs and just about any audio or video file with this fast media player

Zoom Player is a fast, lightweight media player than can handle most types of audio and video files.

In part this is because the setup program installs much more than the player itself, though. It will also download and install components like FFDShow, Haali's Media Splitter, DirectVobSub, Gabest MPEG and Blu-ray splitter, FFMPEG core files and many other media-related components. And so if you've had problems with these or any similar tools, and you want to make sure Zoom Player doesn't disrupt your current system configuration, then be sure to choose a custom installation here. This will then allow you to choose which components you'd like to install, and which you really wouldn't.

Once set up, you can use Zoom Player to play CDs, DVDs and all the main audio and video formats (H.264, XVID, DIVX, DVD, FLV, WMV, QuickTime, MPEG 1/2/4, MP3, AAC, DTS, Dolby Digital, FLAC and many more), even in situations where other programs might fail. So it can play incomplete AVI files, for instance, and files that are locked by other programs.

A familiar interface then makes it easy to browse each file, move through individual tracks, DVD chapters and more.

And you also get extensive playlist support; a Playback History that lists all the files you've played recently; a Chapter Editor which allows you to store locations in particular media files - the most interesting parts of a video, say - and return to them in a speedy double-click; and many other useful features.

Please note, Zoom Player is also available in Pro and Max versions that add many other features, from integrated eMule/uTorrent file tracker, to Blu-ray playback, extensive command line support, HTML/ Flash/ QuickTime interactivity, Windows Media DRM support, and much more. Prices start from around $39.95 and you can find out more at the Inmatrix site.

Verdict:

A lightweight, capable and unusually feature-packed media player

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
