Miro Video Converter 3.0
Quickly convert videos into iPod and Android-friendly formats

It's a fundamental law of video files that they're never in quite the format you need, especially for playback on mobile devices. Install Miro Video Converter and that needn't be a problem, though - the program provides the easiest possible way to transcode just about any video format to the Theora format, or files suitable to a range of mobile hardware: Android products (Behold II, Cliq/ DEXT, Droid, Eris/ Desire, G1, Hero, Magic/ myTouch, Nexus One), various Apple devices (iPhone, the iPod Classic, Nano and Touch), and the PSP.

To make this happen, all you need do is drag and drop a file onto Video Converter, choose your output format, and click Convert. It's as easy as that.

While simplicity is generally a good thing, Miro Video Converter does take it perhaps a little too far. There are no advanced tweaks here whatsoever, no options to customise bitrate, resolution, audio formats or anything else, so you can't, say, reduce the size of a particular group of videos to guarantee that they'll fit on a nearly full device. You can't even drag multiple videos onto the program in a single operation - it's strictly one at a time.

Miro Video Converter 3.0 is a major upgrade. New features/changes include:

- Batch Processing
- More devices and output formats
- Better control for output size and aspect ratio
- Output of progressive MP4 files for web playback
- Improved WebM output quality with SD and HD options
- Thumbnail generation
- Some additional output options for video developers
- And it’s all wrapped up in an incredible new UI!

Verdict:

While Miro Video Converter is short on features, it's also exceptionally easy to use. And behind the scenes quality libraries like FFmpeg carry out the conversions, so you can sure of good results

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.
