Thumbnail me 3.0
Create thumbnail images for your movies

Thumbnail me is an open source tool which creates thumbnails of any selected video, then saves them to a single image. It's very useful as a simple way to summarise the content of a video, without having to load (or download) and view the file yourself.

The program imports most common video types: AVI, MP4, MPG, VOB, MOV, MKV, TS/ M2TS, FLV, 3GP, OGG, SWF and more.

You're able to choose the section of video you'd like to be thumbnailed; the number, size and layout of your thumbnails (a single row or column, a grid of your preferred size); and whether you'd like the page to include technical details of the video (file size, duration, bitrate etc).

Once you've set everything up correctly (or if you're happy with the default settings), producing the finished image is just a matter of clicking "Start". Thumbnail me then grabs evenly spaced frames from your video and compiles them into the final image, which can be saved as a JPG, PNG, BMP or TIFF file.

Perhaps best of all, Thumbnail me can also upload your thumbnail page to imageShack. You can use your own imageShack account to do this, but the program also supports anonymous upload, quickly getting your image online and providing the links you need to immediately share it with others.

Verdict:

An odd interface layout means Thumbnail me isn't quite as easy to use as it should be. You'll still figure out everything you need to know within a couple of minutes, though, and its speed, configuration options and imageShack uploader make the program a great thumbnailing choice.

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.
