Grabilla 1.23
Capture and share desktop images and videos

Grabilla is a cross-platform tool (Windows, Mac, Android) for taking screen captures, recording desktop activity to animated GIFs or videos (with audio), annotating and sharing the results.

Launch the program on Windows and you're able to define a freehand rectangle to capture. A zoomed view shows the area around the mouse cursor, and its X and Y coordinates are also displayed, handy if you need precise positioning. Video, animated GIF, active window and full screen captures are also just a click away.

Once you've completed your capture, a simple editor displays various annotation tools: line, rectangle, arrow, text, and "redaction", a filled rectangle to obscure confidential data (names, addresses, account numbers, anything you don't want others to see).

The finished file may be saved locally, but Grabilla can also upload the capture to its own private server. There you're able to annotate it further, get links to share it, embed the screenshot or post it in forums, and there's even a one-click option to create a short URL and QR code.

Explore further and you'll find even more options. A web capture bookmarklet enables you to save web pages from Chrome or Firefox. Grabilla can be used to share other files, not just captures, within a fairly strict size limit (20MB, 300MB for videos). A History page keeps track of what you're doing, too, although to access this from anywhere you must sign in with a Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Yahoo or LinkedIn account. (If that doesn't appeal, no problem - most of the site's features work just fine as an anonymous user.)

Version 1.23 brings:
+ Scroll Capture – new feature for capturing screenshots in applications with window scroll.
! Video capture under Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 fix.
* Minor fixes for stability.
* Signed installer and executable files with certificate.

Verdict:

Grabilla's interface has some quirks, and video recording didn't work at all on one test PC. The plus points win out, though - configurability, online annotations, capture sharing features, cross-platform - and on balance the program gets a qualified thumbs up from us.

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.
