ON AIR
Share the music you're listening to via Skype with ON AIR

When you are listening to music, you have probably forgotten the name of the track that is currently playing and had to switch from what you are doing to look at your media player. This can slow you down, particularly if you are listening to music while you work, but it is something that ON AIR can help you with. This free plugin enables you to see at a glance what you are listening to, and also to share your music listening through Skype.

Whenever a new track is played, the name of it will pop up from the taskbar in a balloon notification. This may be all you want to know, but you can click on the notification to be taken online to look up more information about the band or artist in question so you can view a discography, read lyrics and find out anything else you may want to know.

But one of the main features of ON AIR, and the very reason that it is a Skype plugin rather than just a standalone program, is that it can be configured to update your Skype status with the name of the track you are currently listening to. There is support for a very large number of media players including all of the big name like VLC, WinAmp and Windows Media Player.

If you use different players for different things, you can opt to have any you want to be ignored so tracks that are played here will not be advertised. Your Skype status can be customized in a number of ways, not just with the name of what you are listening to at the moment. You can also have text, links and emoticons added so your updates are completely personalised rather than being the same as other ON AIR users’.

Verdict:

An interesting way to make use of Skype, this is also a helpful tool to aid music identification.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
