Vidiot
A simple(-ish) home video editor

Vidiot is a non-linear video editor for basic home video editing.

Add a few clips and you're able to drag and drop, perhaps copy and paste them into order, maybe add a few simple fades.

You're able to zoom in, preview individual clips and trim them via the mouse or keyboard.

A single panel gives access to most of your effects and status information: speed, opacity, video cropping, rotation, scaling, positions, volume and keyframes.

There's limited support for titles, though nothing like the wizards or templates of more advanced editors (all you can do is overlay transparent images).

When you're finished, Vidiot renders the final video with your choice of codec and bit rate.

A less-than-intuitive interface means this isn't always straightforward, but built-in help is on hand if you need it.

Verdict:

Vidiot is a basic video editor with only limited options, but once you've mastered the interface it's relatively simple and straightforward to use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.40

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 2.17.40

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
