PDF Shaper
Quickly convert PDF files to RTF

PDF Shaper is an easy-to-use collection of PDF processing tools. It's able to extract images and text, convert images to and from PDF, sign, encrypt and decrypt documents, rotate pages, split and merge files, and more.

PDF Shaper is very simple to use. Specify one or more files to convert, give it a destination file or folder, click Convert - and that's it. All you then have to do is watch the status window as it reports conversion progress (and you won't even be doing that for long, as the program is fairly quick).

Please note, the program will by default install extra applications, and reset your home, new tab and search pages in IE and Firefox. Pay attention during setup and clear the relevant checkboxes if you want to avoid this.

What's new in 7.4 (see changelog for more info)?

New Features 
• New main icon.
• New image extraction method.
• Added Chinese translation.
• Ability to add duplicate files in Merge project.

Enhancements 
• Updated translations.
• Improved user interface.
• Improved doc to pdf conversion.
• Improvements to program's performance.

Bug Fixes 
• Resolved problem with keyboard support in main window.
• Fixed bug with extracting images from PDF.
• Fixed bug with opening password-protected PDF documents.
• Resolved problem with decrypting PDF documents.
• Minor bug fixes and improvements.

Verdict:

PDF Shaper delivered mixed results for us. Some of the simpler tools - rotate, split, merge - worked just fine, but complex documents weren't always converted correctly. Still, you might be luckier, and even if you're not, there's enough functionality here to justify the download.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

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 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
