Copyfish
Copy/ paste/ translate text from images, videos, PDFs

Copyfish is a free Chrome extension which can extract text from web pages, images, videos, documents and more, in a browser tab or your desktop, and optionally translate it, too.

The system is very simple and straightforward. View whatever it is you'd like to capture, click the Copyfish icon on your address bar, click and drag to draw a rectangle around your text. The OCR result is displayed in a few seconds, along with a translated (to English) version.

If the text looks correct, you're able to copy it to the clipboard with a click.

If there's a problem - or you need to extract multiple areas of text - clicking "Recapture" allows you to draw another rectangle and get more results.

If you're not usually translating English text then you'll want to choose your preferred input language in the Settings dialog.

The extension also has an option to choose your "translate to" language, or - if you need OCR only - you can turn off the translation feature entirely.

Verdict:

There are no frills here, but Copyfish seems accurate, works just about anywhere, and is very easy to use.

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.
