ChrisPC Screen Recorder
Record videos of your desktop

ChrisPC Screen Recorder is a versatile desktop recorder in both cut-down free-for-personal-use and commercial (24.99 Euro) editions.

Both builds offer recording of full-screen, application window and rectangular areas, in windowed or borderless forms (ideal for games or video) and with audio support.

There's support for highlighting your mouse cursor and playing a sound on mouse clicks, helpful in video tutorials.

You're able to configure the video encoder, quality, frame rate, audio source ("what you hear" or your microphone), audio codec and more.

Most of this is controlled via a simple toolbar, but there are also customisable hotkeys for capture type, "start" and "stop" recording.

The main issue with the free build is you're restricted to 10 minutes recording only.

Your video also has a watermark, but this is relatively small and at the lower part of the frame. It doesn't get in the way of the main action and shouldn't be an issue for personal use.

Upgrading lifts these restrictions and gets you video trimming, the ability to set your own watermarks, free technical support, and a licence to use the program commercially.

What's new in v2.10 (see complete history for more)?

- Improved support for Windows 10.
- Other fixes and improvements.

Verdict:

ChrisPC Screen Recorder is easy to use and worked as advertised, with one major exception: every time we tried to record a custom rectangular area, ffmpeg crashed. We don't see other people reporting this so presumably it's partly related to our setup, but if that's a function you need, test it carefully before spending any cash on the Pro build.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.110

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 2.18.110 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
