Song Buddy
Find out more about your favourite artists

Song Buddy monitors what you're playing in iTunes or Windows Media Player, and can tell you more about the current artist whenever required.

We tried playing a few songs in Windows Media Player, then clicking Song Buddy's system tray icon. A small window popped up each time, correctly identifying the current artist and track, and displaying an image and basic biography.

Clicking the Releases tab displays the artist's previous album releases, along with their cover art, release date, and links to track listings (with previews) or iTunes.

A "Similar" tab lists similar artists, an Events tab displays upcoming concerts, and Song Buddy has links to the artist's home page, Twitter and Facebook account, YouTube channel, Spotify, Wikipedia and iTunes page, as appropriate.

There's also an option to search for an artist by name. Once they're found, you can then access the release lists, "Similar Artists" page and other details just as before.

Version 1.10 brings "bug fixes and speed improvements".

Verdict:

Song Buddy was an inconsistent performer for us - some searches were fast, others frustratingly slow - but when it worked it delivered plenty of useful information and links.

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."
