WaveShop
A small but easy-to-use and bit-perfect audio editor

WaveShop is a free, open source audio editor. The program is also bit-perfect, which means it keeps alterations of your audio files to the absolute minimum. So if you edit just a tiny section of the intro, say, everything else remains unaffected, and you can copy and paste audio without altering their contents at all.

The program supports reading and writing plenty of file types, including MP3, MP2, WAV, AIFF, AU, AVR, CAFF, FLAC, HTK, IFF, MAT4, MAT5, MPC, OGG, PAF, PVF, RAW, RF64, SD2, SDF, VOC, W64, WVE and 6I files.

Open your file and you'll be presented with a familiar waveform display. You're able to zoom in quickly with the keyboard or mouse, select the section you need, perhaps copy and paste it elsewhere. And the Audio menu contains some handy effects which you can apply to your chosen sample.

You can amplify audio, for instance, fade it in or out, or scan your file for clipped audio. A "Change Format" option adjusts the sample rate, sample size and number of channels. There are Reverse and Invert tools; you get simple Peak and RMS statistics, and there are a host of ways to work with channels. You can insert, delete or swap them, for instance; extract channels to mono files; even edit surround sound audio to decide which channel is assigned to a particular speaker.

There's nothing too complicated here, then - WaveShop's author has just concentrated on the essentials. But that's just fine with us. The program doesn't have a flashy interface - there's no host of toolbars with hi-res icons - but by way of compensation we get other things, like the excellent Help file, and the smart memory management which means editing is extremely fast. That works for us, and on balance WaveShop is a capable and easy-to-use audio editor.

Version 1.0.14 is a bug fixe release.

Verdict:

A straightforward and speedy audio editor which keeps any loss of sound quality to the absolute minimum

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
