Media Player Lite on iPad
View your photos as a series of thumbnails for easy browsing.

Not everyone buys into the Apple-centric ethos. There’s no doubt Apple produces great product, but sometimes you don’t want to tie yourself into one company’s vision or dream. It’s cheaper for starters, which is why it’s always a good idea to have a backup plan for streaming media. And that backup plan should normally involve support UPNP.

Universal Plug ‘n’ Play is probably the most popular kind of media server out there, particularly if you’re streaming content from a network attached hard drive. They’re usually relatively fuss-free to set up, which simply leaves you the task of actually connecting up to the server to view content remotely.

Media Player Lite is a good choice for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users who want a no-cost, simple means of watching video, oohing over photos and listening to music as it’s streamed from somewhere else to wherever they happen to be.

It’s not particularly sophisticated – a paid-for version with more features is also available – but it does the job if all you need is access to a DLNA/UPNP server over your local network. Start up, tap your server, then drill through your media using the simple interface. You get all the playback controls you need, plus a handy thumbnail viewer and the ability to rotate your photos should they be incorrectly aligned. You can even set off a slideshow and leave it to its own devices.

Codec support is quite narrow – MP4 video (with H.264 video and AAC audio), MP3/AAC audio and JPEG/PNG photos – but if you can live with its limitations, then Media Player Lite is a good choice for those working with no budget.


A decent, no-frills option for viewing content on a UPNP server on your iPad or iPhone.

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.
