Access your computer's media on your mobile with Orb Caster

The humble computer, be it a Mac or a PC, has transformed into a entertain medium in recent years. As well as being used for work and internet browsing, it is also used to house vast music collections, store endless video files and maintain gigantic photo libraries. No one likes to be tied down, but the traditional way of using a computer means that many people will only access their media on the machine it is stored on.

But by installing Orb Caster on your computer as well as OrbLive on your iOS or Android device, you can stream your media files not only around the home, but even around the world. The desktop software acts as a server as catalogues all of the media files you have on your hard drive. There are a number of standard locations that are included by default, but you can easily add your own folders if necessary.

The mobile app make it a breeze to browse through your media collection, access your photos, videos and music whenever your computer is switched on. Remote access can be achieved over a home network, or via the internet, so you can make use of the service when you are out and about.

If all of this is not enough, the Orb software can also be used to control your computer's TV car or web cam. This could be used in a number of ways. You may choose to use this option to access live TV on the move, or you could connect to your web cam when you are out and about to check that everything is OK at home. Forget syncing, just stream.


The mobile apps are a little on the expensive side, but Orb is a fantastic piece of software that will provide you with entertainment wherever you are.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

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 2.12.12 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
