DivXRepair 1.0.1
Automatically fix corrupt AVI videos. Sometimes.

DivXRepair is a compact portable tool which will try to repair AVI files with bad or missing frames. (A sign of this might be a video which freezes when you try to play it back, or briefly breaks up into coloured blocks of pixels.)

The program is fairly straightforward to use. Launch it; click "Add file" to add your troublesome AVI video (you can't drag and drop this onto the program, unfortunately); click "Repair files" to launch the repair, then wait to see what happens.

If all goes well then a text report will appear explaining what (if anything) the program has done. And if this involves a repair then there should be a new "fixed" version in the same folder as the source (if this was MyVideo.avi, that file would remain untouched, while the program creates a new version called MyVideo.REPAIR_OK.avi.)

In our tests the program's results are variable, though. Sometimes it did fix video corruption problems, and very well. But on other occasions the program would do nothing at all, and a couple of times it started to write a new version of the video but then hung up itself.

This isn't some magic solution, then, and you may well be better off using VirtualDub (on which the program is based) or some other tool to fix the video manually. But the program is at least easy to use, and does work sometimes, so there's no harm in having a copy on hand, just in case.

Verdict:

DivXRepair isn't the most reliable of video repair tools, but it's small, convenient and easy to use, so if you've an AVI which won't play properly then there's just a chance that the program might be able to help.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
