StereoPhoto Maker 5.06
Create, view and work with 3D images

StereoPhoto Maker is a free portable tool for working with 3D images.

At its simplest, you can use the program to open and view JPS, MPO, STJ and DAS files, as well as anaglyph images in regular formats. It's not the most visually appealing of viewers, but there are keyboard shortcuts to zoom in and out, move backwards and forwards through a group of files, display them as a slideshow, and more.

There's support for viewing 3D images in many different ways: side-by-side, colour and gray anaglyphs, interlaced, above/ below and more. A convenient "flashing" option quickly switches back and forth between the two images, allowing you to get a feel for the 3D effect even if you don't have a viewer.

Your source pictures can be saved in various other 3D formats. Or if you're more interested in 2D viewing, images can be saved as animated GIFs (with the "flashing" effect) or split into their component pictures (left/ right JPEGs, say).

The real power here comes from StereoPhoto Maker's ability to create and adjust 3D images, though. At its simplest, you might open a 3D picture and use the cursor keys to re-align images, one pixel at a time. But if you're working on a larger scale, the author claims StereoPhoto Maker 4.52 can "automatically batch-align hundreds of images and mount them to the 'window'".

You also get the option to create simple web pages which, in theory at least, allow you to share your favourite 3D pictures with others. We say "in theory" as it didn't work well for us, but if you have more luck then this could be very useful.

StereoPhoto Maker isn't always easy to use. Creating new images in particular requires a good knowledge of 3D fundamentals. It works just fine as a 3D viewer, though, and as the program is just a single 3MB executable, it's not exactly going to get in your way. If you might ever need to work with 3D images then we'd recommend keeping a copy around.

   This version adds 'Border setting...' for Saving Universal View.

Verdict:

StereoPhoto Maker has a useful 3D image viewer, and convenient tools for processing and converting various 3D formats. It's not always easy to use - and creating 3D pictures requires a little work - but there's more than enough here to justify the download.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
