DVDStyler
Quickly burn professional DVD video discs

DVDStyler is a powerful authoring tool that makes it quick and easy to create video DVDs from just about any media files.

The program supports all the major video formats, for instance, and quite a few of the minor ones, too: ASF, AVI, DV, FLV, M2P, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPG, OGG, VOB, WMV, and more. You can also include audio files, or images if you'd like to create a DVD slideshow. Just drag and drop the files you need onto DVDStyler and it'll add them to your project.

If you're in a hurry then there's very little else to do. Choose a menu template, select a background you like from the selection on offer, click File > Burn DVD > Start and DVDStyler will go to work. Multi-core CPU support means your videos are encoded at high speed, and it'll have your discs burned more quickly than much of the competition.

The real fun with DVDStyler comes when you take the time to design your own menus, though. Not only can you add your choice of background, but you drag the existing buttons around, add new buttons, rotate and resize them, and get them to perform whatever action you need.

DVDStyler 3.0 changes include:

  * added support of animations
  * added validation of menu cell actions
  * added option "keep aspect ratio" for image in frame
  * added option "add chapter at title end"
  * added option to downmix audio to stereo
  * fixed setting of chapters if video is cut
  * fixed fade in/out if video is cut
  * fixed applying of audio filters if mplex is used
  * added support of MPC-HC
  * audio normalization: added clipping protection
  * interlaced encoding: added -alternate_scan parameter
  * added clear cache button in settings dialog
  * added Manolito's VBR plug-in
  * added scrollbar to video object box in title properties
  * added support of metadata (chapter and audio/subtitle language names)
  * added possibility to force display subtitles (but it doesn't work in VLC)
  * added menu templates "Heart" and "MothersDay" (thanks to Gerd Altmann for the images)
  * fixed some bugs
  * win32: updated ffmpeg to version 3.0

Verdict:

DVDStyler has some limitations, but it's still an entertaining, effective and speedy way to burn custom video DVDs

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.7

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.

What's new in 2.16.7?

• If you send a single emoji, it's displayed bigger
• Slide your finger up and down to zoom when recording videos in WhatsApp
• When tapping Edit at the top of the Chats tab, you can now to select multiple chats to quickly archive, delete, or mark as read. 
• Chats are now faster to open
