Openvid Screen Recorder for Chrome
Record and share your webcam, tabs or desktop

Openvid Screen Recorder is a free Chrome extension and service for recording videos of your webcam, browser tabs, application windows, desktop or any combination of these, optionally with narration via your microphone.

The capture process is simple and straightforward. Click the Openvid button, choose what you're recording, there's a brief countdown and you're off. Postpone and resume capture as required, and tap the Openvid button again when you're done. Easy.

Your video is hosted on Openvid's site, ready for sharing, and the extension automatically copies its URL to your clipboard. Paste it into an email or message and it'll be ready for viewing by anybody.

Alternatively, the site can generate an embed code to include the video on your own site, and you're also able to download it as an MP4.

There are a couple of major issues. Initially, videos are limited to 5 minutes in length, and they're only available for 24 hours after recording. But if you can get two other people to sign up, also for free, you get unlimited recording time and video access.

Verdict:

Openvid Screen Recorder is distinctly short on features - there's no editing of any kind, not even basic trimming - but it is quick and easy to use. The initial 5-minute limit is annoying, but it's hard to complain when the service is entirely free, especially when it only takes a couple of referrals to remove the restrictions.

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.
