X-Ripper 1.5
Extract hidden images, audio or videos from other files

X-Ripper is a tool for locating and extracting images, audio or videos from other files. It's aimed at helping you extract content from a game library - soundtrack, images, cut scene videos and more - but can also extract JPEGs from a PDF file, find the images from a DLL, and more.

One very notable problem is there's no MP3 support, but otherwise X-Ripper does support a good range of file types, covering audio (WAV, OGG, WMA, MID, VOC, AU, AIF), image (BMP, JPG, PCX, PNG, DDS, GIF, TGA, TIF) and video (AVI, WMV, SMK, BIK). And in theory you can add support for other file types yourself via the program's X-Ripper.ini file, although this does require some knowledge of the file format.

While all this sounds quite complex, X-Ripper itself turns out to be implausibly small - just a single 120KB executable. And it's also very easy to use: select the file to scan, the output folder and file formats to locate, click "Start Searching" and the program will try to detect and remove them for you.

We say "try" because this won't always happen. X-Ripper doesn't understand the format of the file it's scanning, it just scans it as a simple binary stream, and if that happens to be compressed, encrypted or similarly manipulated then the program won't find anything at all.

Some files don't seem to be detected or extracted properly, either; in a few cases X-Ripper claimed to have found some TGA files in our test files, but they didn't seem to be viewable images.

Generally, though, the program worked very well for us. We pointed it at some PDFs and it extracted the JPEGs just fine, and using C:\Windows\System32\Imageres.dll created more than 600 PNGs of various Windows icons and other graphics: very easy.


Results vary - and we really wish there was MP3 support - but when it works X-Ripper is a quick and very easy way to extract images, audio and video content from other files

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
