SlideDog
Create a presentation from videos, images, web pages, more

SlideDog is a simple tool which can help you combine images, videos, PowerPoint files, web pages, PDFs and more into a single multimedia presentation, then broadcast it online.

There are limitations here. In particular, SlideDog doesn't handle these file types itself, and instead depends on you having suitable viewers available (VLC Media Player for movies, PowerPoint or the PowerPoint viewer for PPT/ PPTX files, and so on). It will install some of these if you don't have them already.

The process of creating your presentation is simple enough. Click Add File, then select "From Disk" to add a local file, "From Web" to add a web page, or "YouTube" to include a YouTube video (you can add a URL directly, or use the built-in YouTube search tool to find what you need).

More files can be added and organised in a timeline, or saved for reloading later. Double-clicking launches the presentation, and you can navigate with the cursor keys, or by stepping directly to a slide from the timeline. When you're done, pressing Esc ends the show.

This works well enough locally, but what's more interesting is SlideDog's ability to broadcast your presentation online, and interact with your audience. In a few seconds the program can present you with a link which you can pass to a maximum of 100 people. Click this and they'll view your files as you present them (currently only PowerPoint files, PDFs and images).

To understand how all this is being received, you can ask if your audience is following, or set up simple polls. A basic text chat tool allows viewers to make comments or ask you questions, and a "Get Feedback" option asks them for their views on the presentation, and lets them know what you thought.

The free version limits this "live sharing" functionality to blocks of 15 minutes. It's still in beta, too, and unsurprisingly isn't reliable yet. Uploading to SlideDog Pro ($9.99/ month, $99/ year) removes the time restriction, though, as well as adding other benefits: slideshow-style automatic advance of slides, dual-display support, and more.

v1.8.6 (Changelog)

Support for High DPI screens and Windows font scaling above 100%
Improved “Live Sharing” screen capture code
Bugfix for PowerPoint slides with embedded videos that weren’t displayed correctly
Fixed issue where unlisted YouTube videos couldn’t be added to the playlist
Added feature to create a compressed zip file of a SlideDog playlist and its files

Verdict:

SlideDog's presentations are easy to create, if rather basic. Its ability to broadcast your work online makes the program much more interesting, although beware, the free version restricts this to blocks of 15 minutes.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
