Jing
Capture images or videos of desktop activity, then share them online

Jing is an ingenious screen capture tool that makes it easy to create an image or video of what you're looking at right now, then share it on the web, via email, Twitter, instant messaging and more.

Launch the program and it runs quietly in the background, displaying a simple icon at the top of your screen. When you want to grab something, click this, select the Capture option and choose exactly what you'd like to grab (an individual application, or your complete desktop?), and whether you want to capture an image or a short (5 minutes maximum) video.

Choose the Image option and Jing looks much like many other screen grab tools, with options to annotate your image with text, boxes, arrows and more, and then save the image to disc (the program only supports PNG files).

But a major advantage here is that Jing can also share your grab on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Screencast.com, upload it to an FTP server, and more. And it's all very straightforward. Customise the interface by adding the sharing features you need, and the program will upload your grab in a click - simple.

And better still, Jing can also capture what's happening on your desktop as a short video (Flash SWF format), complete with audio (though also a Jing logo), sharing it in all the same ways.

Verdict:

Jing is an excellent free screen capture tool with plenty of time-saving image and video sharing options

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
