Doro PDF Writer
Create industry-standard PDF files from just about any Windows application

Doro PDF Writer is a simple tool which makes it easy to create PDF files from almost any application.

As with many similar applications, the program works by installing a virtual printer driver. If you then want to create a PDF file of a web page, say, then simply open this in your browser, choose the Print option, and select the "Doro PDF Writer" printer.

Opening the printer Preferences dialog reveals a few basic settings. This is where you'll configure the print resolution, for instance, which can be anything from 72 (poor quality but tiny files) to 4,000 dpi (extreme high quality to the point of overkill, and huge files too).

Once you've chosen the print option, the core Doro dialog appears. This doesn't have the power of some of the better PDF creation tools; you can't control image compression or font embedding, for example. There are options to enter document metadata, apply password protection, and restrict printing or copy and paste of your file, though, and so will be perfectly adequate for many purposes.

And notably, while we haven't tested this, the authors claim Doro PDF Writer is unusually compatible, running on every version of Windows from XP through to 10.

Verdict:

A basic but capable and easy-to-use PDF creation tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
