GoPro VR Player
Play 360 degree videos on the desktop

GoPro VR Player is a free 360 degree video player for Windows and OS X.

The interface is minimal. A "File" menu has only Open, Preferences and Exit options, the player bar has Play/ Stop, Volume and Full Screen buttons, and that's about it (you don't even get a right-click menu).

This does make for an easy life, though, because the program behaves exactly as you'd expect. Drag and drop an MP4, it starts playing immediately, and you can spin the mouse wheel (or pinch the screen) to zoom in and out, or click and drag to look around.

If you'd like more control, there are some important options in the Preferences dialog. In particular, the Output Projection settings redefine how the video is shown: "Fisheye" and "Little Planet" give you a wraparound sphere-type look, "Rectilinear" is more how you'd see the scene if you were really there.

GoPro VR Player can also recognise and work with your Oculus Rift, as long as your desktop has the appropriate software installed. If there are problems, click Help > Software Log for diagnostic details which might offer some clues.

Verdict:

GoPro VR Player is a simple and hassle-free tool which makes it easy to play 360 degree videos.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.41

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 2.19.41 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
