Adobe Media Player
Watch online TV and manage your own videos with Adobe Media Player

Running on Adobe Air to provide cross platform compatibility, Adobe Media Player differed from other media players in its focus on providing access to online television shows and video podcasts. More recently, Adobe decided to remove support to third party content, instead providing only video tutorials for various Adobe products.

Anyone looking to get start in the likes of Flash, Dreamweaver or Photoshop will undoubtedly benefit from the fairly extensive catalogue of videos that it available, but to describe the program as a media player is slightly misleading. Providing Flash videos have been associated with the application, they can be played through Adobe Media Player, but there is no option within the program to open individual files.

As a learning device, this is a useful tool, but as a media player it is found wanting.

Verdict:

Professional computer users can benefit from a range of video tutorials, but the 'media player' name could be seen as misleading

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.110

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 2.18.110 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
