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 2.9.3 changes include:

  * added selection of player for preview
  * added possibility to normalize audio (replay gain)
  * added ability to choose 5.1 audio and normalizing as default in the settings
  * added possibility to select border or crop to keep aspect ratio
  * added possibility to set default subtitle properties
  * added possibility to keep and use cached files after restarting of DVDStyler
  * redesigned the menu properties dialog
  * joined chapter and cell properties dialogs
  * enabled reencoding of ntsc film (24 fps) by default
  * fixed displaying of video bitrate if video don't need be transcoded
  * fixed memory leak (thanks to Sebastian Vater)
  * win32: updated ffmpeg to version 2.5

Verdict:

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

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
