Plex Media Player 2.25
Plex Media Playerdelivers a stunning interface suited to the big screen.

If you’ve built yourself a handy media library – photos, video, recorded TV, music and more – using the powerful Plex Media Server tool for Windows, Mac or Linux, you’ll need a suitable client to access it all across your network.

This is the media center portion of Plex, recently renamed from Plex Home Theater, and is the only free client available. Plex Media Player works on Mac and Windows, and is designed to look good on your big-screen TV, which means it runs full screen, relies on a keyboard or compatible remote, and can be fiddly to set up.

The initial setup wizard – remember, use your keyboard folks – lets you configure the type of audio and video inputs and outputs you have, then dumps you at the main screen. So long as Plex Media Server is running somewhere (even on the same machine), you’ll have instant access to your movie library.

Presentation is simply fabulous, with lots of detail about the media you’re browsing to help you find what you’re looking for, but you’ll need to spend a little time familiarising yourself with the interface (press the left cursor key on the main screen to access the all-important settings, for example).

Accessing media over your home network is simple – Plex immediately spots any servers and gives you complete access to your media library as well as any online channels (such as YouTube) that you’ve added to the server. If you want access from the wider internet you’ll need to sign up for a MyPlex account, where you can upgrade to a PlexPass to gain additional features such as direct access to media stored in your cloud storage folders as well as offline playback on iOS and Android devices.

What's new in 2.25 (see changelog for more)?

- Desktop web-client updated to 3.77.4
- Added extended artist biography on artist preplay
- Fixed podcast/web show episodes being marked as played as soon as playback is initiated
- Fixed app settings sometimes wrongly showing an item as selected
- Fixed media provider hubs occasionaly not loading
- Fixed an issue where the application could show a blank screen when all servers are unavailable

Verdict:

Plex Media Player provides a polished, user-friendly way of accessing your home media content over the network or internet, engineered specifically for the big screen.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

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 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
