Air Playit - Streaming Video to iPhone
Air Playit enables you to stream videos from your computer to your iOS device

When it comes to playing video files on your iPhone or iPad you are left with two options. Firstly, convert the videos you would like to watch into a format that can be played natively within iOS, or stream videos from iTunes. Both of these methods require a degree of preparation and you will find that you are either limited in the number of formats you are able to play, or have to wait a long time for conversion to be performed.

Air Playit enables you, in conjunction with server software installed on your desktop computer, to stream almost any video or audio format to your iPhone or iPad. This can be approached in two different ways. The first option is to live stream files stored on your computer – this includes AVI, WMV and MKV files – with the necessary conversion taking place on the fly.

The second option is to use the software to convert the footage in advance before saving the resulting file to your device so that it can be watched regardless of whether you have an internet connection. A similar method can be used to stream music from your computer to your iPhone or iPad.

When it comes to watching videos, they can be organised into three different categories that can be used to control access to different types of video. If you have to break off from watching a video, Air Playit will remember where you stopped so you can easily pick up from where you left off. To help save power, when you have finished watching a streaming video, you can use the app to remotely shut down your computer.

Air Playit is incredibly simple to set up, despite the complex work that is going on in the background. There are various other apps that do a very similar job to this one, by Air Playit is a nicely polished app that benefits from being completely free of charge.

Verdict:

A slick and impressive streaming app that frees your iPhone or iPad from video format restrictions and enables you to access your entire video collection in iOS.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.23

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 2.17.2?

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
