Make buffering a thing of the past with Real VideoDownloader

More and more websites and social networks are providing streaming video, but you can’t always easily store it for offline viewing. There are numerous browser extensions that provide this kind of function, but they vary in quality and reliability. Now Real Networks - best known for its RealPlayer media manager - has produced its own downloader that works alongside most browsers, bringing its experience with internet video to the table.

RealDownloader is simple to install and provides you with a playback and management program for your offline files, plus a browser extension that helps you to select and save videos from any web pages that include streaming movies. 

When you visit a page containing suitable material, just roll the mouse cursor over the video element to see a button marked Download this video. Click it to transfer the video to your default video folder. To play a video back, launch RealDownloader and select the downloaded file you want from the list. The program includes a video player so there’s no need to hunt down a compatible app.

You can also share any of your downloaded videos using any of the most popular social networks. Place the mouse cursor on the video entry in RealDownloader and then click on the icon for the network of your choice: Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Bebo or a mail icon, which – surprise, surprise – let’s you email the video link to a friend.

To locate the video files themselves, click the View downloads icon, which takes you directly to the download folder, where you can copy, move or rename the files.

It wouldn’t be a Real product if there wasn’t a paid-for version available, and RealDownloader doesn’t disappoint. Upgrade for around $30 to RealDownloader Plus and you’ll find your download speed accelerated by up to 200 per cent. The Plus version can also convert video to audio, download video straight into your iTunes library, and transfer video to and from mobile devices, including Blackberry, Windows and Android.

Verdict:

RealDownloader offers a quick and easy option for downloading and saving streaming videos so you can play them when you’re not online - functionality reserved for the Plus version, however, can be found for free elsewhere.

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.
