Viber – Take the free way

viberToday, the free calls over the internet became more and more popular. And while there are plenty of programs that allows you to do so, it’s quite hard to choose. But of course, you go for the most featured and light program that you can find. That’s what I like the most about Viber.

First of all, it’s all cross platform. I know, it’s not the only one who has multiple platform support, but its features are making Viber a complete fast and free communication app. It’s fast, because it’s light, simple and efficient. While other programs offer you this and that function, Viber developers managed to get most of the features, well, the most useful ones, into one program. So, you have high quality voice calls, free text (even group text), photo messages and location-sharing with Viber users. Nothing of these requires registration. The application will detect automatically your contacts who are using Viber, and is working great on 3G connection or wifi without major differences. Anyway, be careful because the usage of 3G will use your data plan and can generate extra costs.

Viber-for-PC

As I mentioned before, it’s a cross platform software. So, except for linux, you can have Viber on almost any device using Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Nokia (Symbian) and Samsung Bada.

I was testing the Windows and Android versions. Well, I wanted to check the Video Call feature, which so far is a beta feature, between these platforms. On Windows I have the feature, marked as beta, but on Android is not. So, I can make a voice call between these platforms, but so far, the Video call feature doesn’t seem to be available on the mobile device. Location sharing is also a bit tricky. You only have a small purple arrow that will share your location with the person you are texting, if you activate the arrow. You can open the location in Maps, and let your GPS guide you to meet. Available on mobile device only.

If you want to install the windows version, you must first activate Viber on a mobile device, because Viber will use your telephone number as an identifier for the desktop version of the program. By using the desktop version of Viber you will get the advantage of getting all your viber contacts from your phone instantly on your desktop version.

The application is great for free calls. We all know how expensive the calls/messages with other countries are, so, it’s a good and efficient way to talk free with all your friends from all over the world.

The Flock will be with you…always

If you’re a fan of the Angry Birds, then you need to listen up. If you’re a fan of George Lucas’ Star Wars saga, then you’re definitely going to be interested in one of the latest releases from Rovio – Angry Birds Star Wars. It combines the best of both worlds, and it’s a great multi-platform game that is high on my must have list.

The story starts the same way – A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… a group of desperate rebel birds faced off against a galactic menace: the Empire’s evil Pigtroopers! You command the Rebel birds, striking from a hidden base.  They have won their first victory against the evil Imperial Pigs. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the PIG STAR, and are racing to deliver the plans to the Rebel Birds.

The game plot line follows the movies with, of course, the Angry Birds bent thrown in.  You can use the Force, wield your light saber, and blast Pigtroopers.  You’re on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star.  There, you’ll face off against the terrifying Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs.  It’s time to grab your light saber and join the adventure! May the Flock be with you!

I really like the Angry Birds franchise.  I usually play the games multiple times a week while commuting on the train to and from work.  Angry Birds Star Wars initially struck me as a bit tacky, but the bird abilities and powers were cool and I quickly got hooked.  You get to use light sabers, blasters and the Force throughout the entire game.  The game has more than 80 levels in iconic locations like Tatooine and the Pig Star. It’s a must have on any platform you have available to you.

The Hidden Side of the VLC Player

VLC media player is already a popular application among cross-platform users. (yep, it can run on Linux, Mac, and Windows). It’s free, easy to use and can play any audio or video format without the need of any additional codecs (read the review). But besides what we already know, what can VLC do?

  1. It can convert video files from one format to another.
  2. It can rip audio CD’s and DVD’s.
  3. It can detect and suppress sudden jumps in sound (if you choose to do so). Do you know something more about VLC that is out of the common? Let’s see.
