  • Amazon Music, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you need to check this out!
  • VLC (VideoLAN), this is media player can play almost any audio or video file
  • Paint.NET, similar to Photoshop, but its free!
  • XnView, recently Google announced they are no longer developing Picasa, this is a good alternative.
