Format Factory
Convert video, audio and picture files from one format to another

Format Factory is a powerful file conversion tool with a surprisingly extensive feature list.

The program doesn't just convert video files from one format to another, for instance - it also comes with built-in presets that will, at a click, create videos for a host of mobile devices. These include the iPhone, iPod and iPad, Sony PSP and PS3, and hardware by companies including Archos, ASUS, Creative, Google, HTC, iRiver, LG, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Philips, RIM BlackBerry, Samsung, Song Ericsson and more.

You also get strong audio file conversion options, including the ability to convert any music files to MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, MMF, AMR, M4A, M4R, OGG, MP2, WAV and WavPack.

Format Factory even works with images, batch converting whatever pictures you like to JPG, PNG, ICO, BMP, GIF, TIF, PCX or TGA files.

And the program can also rip DVD and CDs, create ISO images from your discs, join multiple video or audio files together, repair corrupted video and audio files, and more.

What's new in (see version history for more)?

- Added supports for Apple Heic picture format
- Added output format "TS,MTS,M2TS" in "Video joiner"
- Supports modifying task setting for "Video joiner" "Mux" "Audio Joiner" and "Mix"
- Added "All to OGG" Video file format.


Format Factory has one or two bugs, and crashed a couple of times during our tests. Most of the time it worked perfectly, though, and the sheer weight of its file conversion functionality means you really should give it a closer look

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

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.
