Convert your Blurays and DVDs for free with MakeMKV

Having films and other video stored on DVD and Blu-ray disc is great in many respects, but it is also somewhat restrictive. If you want to watch a particular video on a laptop that does not have a built in optical drive, you are a bit stuck for options, but MakeMKV is a tool that can help you to overcome this and other problems. There are numerous tools available that can be used to convert discs into video files, but this one is incredibly easy to use.

Where MakeMKV really shines is in just hoe simple the whole conversion process is made. Once your disc has been analysed, your will be provided with a new video file in a very short space of time – the biggest limitation here is the speed of your drive. The benefit of using the MKV format is that it preserves the menu structure of DVD and Blu-ray discs so you can maintain the full contents of a disc including film extras.

As well as keeping menus and chapters intact, the program will also retain all availbale audio and video tracks. The fact that the program can be used with both protected and unprotected discs is likely to appeal and in practice the app seems to cope well with all discs. It’s good to find a simple conversion tool that does not require the installation of countless extras – everything you need is ready right from the word go.

During the beta testing phase of MakeMKV’s development, the converting of Blu-rays will be free, but at the end of the beta period there will be a charge for this feature. However, the ability to convert DVD is and will remain completely free of charge. Anyone who has used the old program DVD Shrink is likely to find this particular app very familiar as the two program have a very similar look and feel.

Version 1.9.2:
    - Added support for AACS v52
    - Added full support for BDAV discs
    - Improved handling for discs with mastering errors
    - Bug fixes and small miscellaneous improvements

Verdict:

A great way to backup your discs and make your movies available on all of your computing devices.

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.
