YouTube is a great source of music and videos, but if you want to listen to or watch anything you’re going to need an internet connection. If you stumble across something you would like to watch time and time again, TubeBox can be used to download anything you would like to keep and even convert files between formats. YouTube is far from being the only supported streaming service, as you can also use TubeBox in conjunction with Metacafe, DailyMotion and much more.

Unlike some video downloading tools, TubeBox does not require you to use a web browser – it is a standalone program that takes care of everything for you. The search tool can be used to track down what you are looking for, and the drop down menu enables you to choose from one of the many supported sites. If you’re interested in quality, you can limit search results to HD video or even only 3D files.

A preview window lets you check the videos before you download them and a simple series of buttons can be used to download the video in its native format or just rip the audio to an MP3 file. If you intend to watch the video on a smaller screen device, there is little point downloading the full resolution version of a video. TubeBox includes a conversion tool that enables you to optimize footage for playback on different devices.

There are a couple of issues with the program. Large portions of the installer are in German which does not inspire confidence and then there is the issue of the Babylon toolbar. If you have progressed through the installer and started to filter out the German, it’s all too easy to accidentally install this. Add to this the TwitTube addon, a coupon program, and a music app, there is scope for all manner of unwanted software to find its way on your hard drive.


Impressively simple to use, this is a great alternative to browser based download tools, but you need to take care with the unwanted extras.

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.
