Icecream Screen Recorder
Record, edit and share videos of your desktop

Icecream Screen Recorder is a comprehensive tool for capturing still images or videos of your desktop, editing the results and sharing them with others.

The program offers a wide selection of capture types. It can grab the full screen, a freehand rectangle or specific window. There's also an option to record a fixed-size area around the mouse cursor (a 640x480 portal which follows your mouse, say), and a "last area" option to quickly repeat whatever you chose last time.

Recording can be paused and resumed with a click, or a hotkey.

You're able to draw on the video as you work, add shapes or text captions. If you're recording a software tutorial, you could click Pause at a key point, highlight one area with colour, resume for a few seconds, maybe draw an arrow somewhere else-- it's up to you.

The program records audio from microphone as well as the system speakers, allowing you to add a narration.

Videos you create and save appear in a list. You're able to preview them with a click, trim them, copy videos to the clipboard or upload them to YouTube.

The free build has a couple of major restrictions in a five-minute maximum recording time, and WEBM-only output format. But you can work your way around this by using other tools to combine clips or convert their format. Alternatively, buying the full version for around $25 lifts the restrictions and gets you more: scheduled screen recording, custom watermarks, priority support, and a lifetime licence for personal and commercial use on up to two PCs.

What's new 5.09 (see changelog for more)?

- Possible crash at start fixed

Verdict:

A nicely-designed screen recorder with some welcome extras. Capturing a moving area around the mouse and the ability to draw on the screen could be very useful, and the trimmer is handy too. The maximum 5-minute recording time and WEBM-only recording formats are annoying, but better than plastering your clips with watermarks, and overall Icecream Screen Recorder is a likeable tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
