Metadata++
Explore tags for pictures, video, audio, more

Metadata++ is an ExifTool-powered tool for viewing and managing the metadata in pictures, videos, audio files and more.

The program looks and feels much like Explorer. Here's a folder tree on the left; there are the contents of the current folder in the centre; you can view this in thumbnail or details-type form.

At its simplest, this works as a capable metadata viewer.  Click an image and Metadata can display its basic information (format, resolution, encoding); file details (name, size, created/ modified/ last accessed dates); and a host of other Adobe, Exif, IPTC, XMP, GPS, ICC profile and other information.

Right-click the currently-selected files and you'll find options to remove, export or import metadata or save the data in one of multiple formats: HTML, HTMLDUMP, JSON, MIE sidecar, PHP, TXT and XML.

Metadata++ opens with one tab, but you can easily add more to browse and compare multiple folders at once.

While these functions worked more or less correctly, we also noticed lots of problems.

 - The drives under "This PC" are sorted alphabetically, so the sequence on our test PC went "Data (D:)", "OS_Install (C:)", and so on.

 - You can view thumbnails of images, but there's no double-click action to view them, not even in the default Windows viewer.

 - There's a Map function but it either didn't highlight geotagged files, or showed a map which didn't clearly indicate the location of the picture

 - Thumbnail creation can be very slow. We regularly thought the program had given up before finally they appeared.

 - There's a "double-click to edit metadata" function but this either didn't work for us, or we didn't understand it

 - We clicked a Help icon to test our understanding, and a browser window opened with an "error 404" message

 - The program crashed several times, and locked up once.

Verdict:

Metadata++ can display a vast amount of information on media files. The program needs a lot of work and its more advanced featured weren't reliable for us, but if you're interested in metadata or media file management it could be interesting.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.21

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 2.17.21

• You can now ask Siri to read your latest messages (iOS 10.3+)
• Visual improvements to the Calls tab, Contact Info and Group Info screens 
• In the My Updates screen, you can now select multiple statuses at once and forward or delete them
