Sumatra PDF
Use the lightweight Sumatra PDF to open PDF files

Think of PDF files and the first program that springs to mind is likely to be Adobe Reader. While this is a perfectly capable program, recent versions have come in for criticism for being large and slow, making them unsuitable for anyone running an older computer or a lower sec netbook.

SumatraPDF is a lightweight PDF reader which makes scant use of system resources and can even be run from a USB drive. The program offers faithful reproduction of PDF files and includes all of the features you would expect to find – a search facility, page navigation, zooming and more.

There are a variety of different views available and a rotate option is available for PDFs that have not been correctly configured. With the ability to save PDFs as text files and email files directly from within the programs, Sumatra PDF has all of the basic covered, but it does not offer some of the more advanced features found in alternative titles.

If you’re looking for a PDF reader that focuses on speed rather than features, Sumatra PDF is the tool for you. While the program could hardly be described as feature-packed, it is often the case that you simply need to open a PDF rather than doing anything more exotic with it – and Sumatra PDF is perfect for this.

Version 3.1.2 brings (changelog):

- fixed issue with icons being purple in latest Windows 10 update
- tell Windows 10 that SumatraPDF can open supported file types

Verdict:

If you are not too demanding of your PDF viewer and are looking for pure performance, Sumatra PDF is your ideal tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.40

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 2.17.40

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
