CyberLink PowerDVD 17 Ultra
Store, sync and share your media online

CyberLink PowerDVD 17 is the latest edition of the powerful do-everything media player.

The program supports just about every audio and video format, pictures, CDs, DVDs, and a host of Blu-ray and high-definition disc types.

There's real depth here. You want to play 3D movies, browse 3D images? No problem. H.265 footage, XAVC-S 4K videos are supported, too. No need to worry about audio - Dolby Digital/ Plus/ TrueHD, AAC, DTS 96/24 and DTS-HD are just some of the supported formats. It even plays ISO images without you having to burn or mount them first.

That's just the start. PowerDVD's TrueTheater enhances video and sound for the best quality; an ultra-configurable library helps you manage your media collection; you can stream files locally across your network, or share them online with YouTube and Vimeo.

Version 16 brings a brand-new TV Mode, a revamped interface designed to be viewed on a large screen TV, and controlled from your mobile using the enhanced PowerDVD Remote app.

Or if you want to go further, PowerDVD can now wirelessly stream media to Roku, Chromecast and Apple TV devices, as well as connecting via DLNA. (You don't have to worry about supported file types: the program converts them if necessary.)

The program now handles more formats, including MVC and DSD audio.

New batch processing support means you can extract the audio from multiple files.

And version 17 comes with a free year's subscription to 30GB of space (up from 20GB last time) on CyberLink Cloud, where you can store media, sync it across your devices or share it with others.

PowerDVD is also available in two more basic editions.

PowerDVD Pro drops DLNA and media casting, can't handle 3D movies/ pictures, doesn't have free Cloud space, loses the new TV Mode, has only a limited Media Player app, doesn't support 7.1 audio and misses out on a few other advanced features (no ISO playback).

PowerDVD Standard also drops Blu-ray support, has reduced audio format support and no social media options.

Verdict:

CyberLink PowerDVD 17 is an exceptionally powerful media player, and the new TV Mode and media casting tools make it an even better choice for your home's entertainment hub. If you need a player which does everything, this is probably it.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
