DaVinci Resolve
Professional video editing and colour correction

DaVinci Resolve is a powerful non-linear video editor with industrial-strength colour correction technology, as used on movies and TV productions across the world.

This isn't a package for beginners, but if you've some editing experience the interface will seem familiar enough. Import videos into a media pool here, add them to a timeline there, trim or reorganise clips, add transitions, apply effects, add titles and more.

Multicam editing is another plus. Import multiple clips and you're able to sync them automatically via audio.

The real value here is in Resolve's colour grading. This isn't just about dragging RGB sliders: you can create and adjust curves in real time, match and balance shots, use 3D object tracking and more.

This also can be seriously complicated to use, but DaVinci Resolve does at least provide some quality local documentation to help you get started. A detailed PDF manual gives you a high-level view on the sort of things you might want to do with colour correction - to add style, emphasize what's important, match or confound audience expectations - and then explains how to achieve them.

Please note, you must provide a lot of personal information to register DaVinci Resolve - name, email and physical address and phone number - before you're able to download it.

Verdict:

DaVinci Resolve is a hugely capable video editor with outstanding colour grading features. There's a significant learning curve and you'll need to spend a while reading the manual and exploring Resolve's abilities, but if you need this level of power it'll be worth the effort.

This is amazing.

DaVinci resolve was my starting point in video editing. I really like the flexibility and powerful tools that have been implemented in this software. And it's really easy to get used to this soft. Sure, it will take some time before you start using it in it's full power but, trust me, time is worth it. I've made some video reviews for android app development companies like http://jatapp.com/android-application-development/ and it payed off hard! Amazing soft!

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
