Lagarith Lossless Video Codec 1.3.27
Save any videos as often you like with no loss in quality

Lagarith is a lossless video codec which is able to save your videos without any loss in quality.

So what? If you're repeatedly editing a video, and saving it each time in a conventional codec - XviD, say - then your movie will lose a little quality each time. And while you can avoid this by saving the movie uncompressed, the files will be huge (a test 30 second 1280x720 uncompressed video required 2.32GB on our test PC).

Tell your editor to save files using the Lagarith codec, though, and these issues won't apply. Its lossless algorithm means you won't lose any quality, no matter how many times you save the file. And although your videos will be much larger than normal, they'll also be far smaller than their uncompressed cousins (our 2.32GB test video dropped to 419MB when saved using Lagarith).

Please note, videos created using Lagarith may not be supported by some media players. Applications like VLC, for instance, use their own built-in codecs and so won't be able to handle Lagarith-based files. This shouldn't really matter, as you'll only be saving files in Lagarith while they're being edited; use a more conventional codec when you're done and all will be well. But if you need to view a Lagarith-based movie in the meantime, open it in Windows Media Player and it should play correctly.

Verdict:

A fast and efficient lossless codec

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
