PaperScan Free 3.0.75
Clean up your scanned documents with this easy-to-use tool

PaperScan Free Edition is a scanning application that provides plenty of tools to clean up your scans or existing scanned images and can then save the results as images or PDFs.

The program supports both TWAIN and WIA devices, so should work with scanners, cameras, video capture cards and many other devices. And just in case that's not enough, it can also import images from files on your PC, including PDFs and regular graphics files.

Wherever your image came from, PaperScan can quickly optimise it, allowing you to remove punch holes and borders in just a couple of clicks. An autodeskew option will automatically find and correct pages that aren't quite straight. There is a host of other tools to adjust colours, smooth an image, tweak contrast, remove noise, resize a page, and just generally make it look better than it did before. And when you've finished, your document may be saved as a TIFF, JPEG, PNG, JBIG2 or PDF file.

Please note, this free version of PaperScan displays adverts, and is limited to batch scanning or importing a maximum of 10 pages at a time. To avoid this, you can purchase PaperScan Professional, which removes these restrictions and adds several new features (can save documents as multipage TIFFs, or PDFs, and can automatically remove blank pages during scanning). The Professional Edition costs $149, and you can discover more about it at the Orpalis site.

What's new in 3.0.75 (see complete changelog for more info)?

- Improved MRC engine.
- Battery of minor bug fixes.

Verdict:

PaperScan Free provides an easy way to optimise PDF files and other scanned images. The 10 page limit could be a problem, though, and the Professional Edition seems a little expensive

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
