AniView
An open-source animated GIF viewer

AniView is a simple open-source animated GIF viewer.

Import any GIF via File > Open and the program plays it immediately (there's no drag and drop support, unfortunately.)

Large "left" and "right" buttons enable stepping through and viewing any GIFs in the same folder.

There are menu options to export all animation frames, open the image in your default GIF editor, or view Explorer's Properties dialog for the file.

A Settings dialog has options for "Repeat behaviour" (play the animation one, twice, three times or repeat forever), and your preferred export format (PNG, BMP, JPEG and TIFF, though not GIF, surprisingly).

Verdict:

AniView played our test GIFs without difficulty, but the interface isn't as intuitive as it could be. We can't drag and drop files, for instance; the player uses non-standard icons, including "refresh" for play and "pin" to stop; you can't manually step from frame to frame, or drag the playing point to a specific spot.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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 2.19.61 

• You can now see stickers in full size when you long press a notification.
