SoftDigi Easy GIF
Create and edit animated GIFs

SoftDigi Easy GIF is a versatile suite of tools for creating and editing animated GIFs.

The program doesn't require any artistic or design ability. At a minimum you can open and edit an existing animation, resize it, remove or duplicate frames, change colours, apply effects, add captions, shapes and more.

These editing tools are far more capable than you might expect. "Line" doesn't just draw a line from one point to another, for instance: you get to control thickness, line and brush styles, line and fill colours, transparency, optional arrowheads, a shadow effect and more.

It's a similar story with the Text tool. You could use it to generate a simple horizontal caption, but it can also be displayed in a circle, an arc, maybe vertically, with rotated characters, in a custom size, with control over transparency, and maybe a shadow as well.

These objects and others - shapes, polylines, more - are vector graphics, too, for easier editing later.

The animation may be previewed at any time, and exported as a GIF (optionally packaged with a web page), an SWF or AVI video.

Built-in optimization tools can crop transparent areas, merge identical frames, play around with colour maps and generally reduce file sizes. This could make the program useful as a way to cut the size of an existing GIF file, even if you don't edit it.

There's also a separate wizard for creating animated GIF banners. Add some text, set colours, gradients, apply a few effects and you're done within minutes.

In theory, the program can also create animated GIFs from videos, although this didn't work in our tests. If this is important to you, be sure to test the feature carefully.

SD Easy GIF 4.5 Release Notes
- Added ability to load GIF files with two modes: with filled transparent areas and not
- Improved import of video files
- Made changes in the interface of Import Video window
- Fixed minor bugs

Verdict:

SoftDigi Easy GIF is a comprehensive animated GIF builder with real depth and power.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.30

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 2.19.30 

• 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.
