Media Feature Pack for Windows 8 N/ KN 1.0
Equip your Windows 8 N/ KN editions with Windows Media Player and more

If you're using a system with an N/ KN edition of Windows 8 then you'll probably already have noticed that it's missing Media Player, and a few related technologies. And at first this may not seem like a big deal, as you can always install some other media player instead.

But, unfortunately, it may not be as simple as that.

Some software packages make the mistake of assuming that these Windows technologies are always there, and as a result, won't work properly on N or KN editions (some programs fail to install, others might crash or simply not perform particular tasks as they should).

There is an easy solution, though, and that's just to install this Media Feature Pack for Windows 8. In one step you'll add Media Player and its supporting layers to your Windows 8 installation, and hopefully any third-party media related tools and applications will then work exactly as they should.

Verdict:

An easy way to restore normal media tools and technologies to Windows 8 N and KN editions

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
