OpenShot Video Editor
A powerful free video editor

OpenShot Video Editor is an open-source editor with many powerful features.

The program's use of FFmpeg means it's able to properly handle many different video, audio and image formats.

There's drag and drop support for importing clips, resizing and repositioning them on the program's multi-track timeline.

Right-clicking a selected clip gives you a quick idea of what can be done, with options including Copy, Paste, Fade, Animate, Rotate, Time (speed or slow the clip), Volume and Slice (trim or cut your movie).

Experienced editors will appreciate the video transitions, overlays, watermarks, title creators and templates, rotoscoping support, key frame animation, and range of digital effects.

Once you've finished, a Profile-based Export dialog helps you choose the best file format and settings for Blu-ray/ AVCHD, DVD, device or web use.

See the Release Notes for more information.

Verdict:

OpenShot is a capable video editor with plenty of features and functionality. Just be aware, you will have to spend a little time setting it up and learning how everything works.

Click Title > Animated Titles, for instance, and a dialog explains that you must download and install the open-source Blender, then point OpenShot at its executable, before the feature will work. That's not difficult, but if you just want something quick and easy then it could be annoying.

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.
