MediaEspresso 6
Convert video, music or images files into the formats you need

MediaEspresso is a fast and powerful media conversion tool that will quickly convert video, music or image files into the format you need.

The program has direct support for the iPad, iPod, Xbox, PSP/ PS3, and many mobile phones and media players. And so there's none of the complexities here that you'll find with other transcoding tools. Simply drag and drop the files you'd like to convert onto the program, choose an output profile - an iPad, say - then click OK to accept the default settings and leave MediaEspresso to do its work. Once the process has finished your files can be directly synced to your device, transferred to the iTunes library, even uploaded to YouTube or Facebook - whatever you like.

Excellent video format support means the program is able to import all these file types: MKV (default subtitle), RM/RMVB, FLV NEW AVI, MPEG, MPEG-2, MOV (H.264), WMV, MP4, DVR-MS, .TS, MPG, ASF, M2T, M2TS, MTS, DV-AVI, TiVo, VOB, VRO, MOD, DAT, TOD and WTV (single channel). Export options are more limited, as you can only convert videos to MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MPEG-4 AVC, WMV or DivX formats, but that should still be enough for most purposes.

New in this version is the ability to convert some music or image files. There's not such a wide range of formats supported here (wma, mp3, m4a and BMP, JPEG, PNG), but it remains a welcome addition.

If you need to regularly convert large files, though, what you'll probably appreciate most of all is MediaEspresso's speed. The program uses multiple threads to make the most of every CPU core, and will automatically use NVIDIA CUDA or ATI Stream, if available, to accelerate the conversion process. It's even able to transcode up to 6 files at the same time, and so will squeeze the maximum possible performance out of your system.

Please note, this trial version is not only limited to 30 days use, but it will also convert videos to the H.264 format 50 times only. So use your conversions carefully.

Verdict:

There's plenty of free transcoding competition around, but MediaEspresso is faster, easier to use, and is better at handling the finished videos, from uploading them to YouTube to directly syncing with devices

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
