Convert almost any documents to PDF format in a click

pdfFactory is a straightforward tool that allows you to create PDF files from just about any Windows application.

As with many similar utilities, it works by installing a virtual printer driver. You then open whichever document you'd like to convert, choose the Print option, select the pdfFactory printer, and the program launches to display your file. You may save the document to PDF, or send it as an email attachment in a couple of clicks.

If you need more control, though, there's plenty on offer here. Browse the pdfFactory printer preferences, for instance, and you're able to set the file resolution to anything from 150 to 1,440 dpi, or any custom value somewhere in between. And there are options to set your JPEG compression level, and downsample images to the resolution of your choice.

You can also set details like the PDF file metadata (Title, Author, Subject or Keywords). Security options allow you to encrypt the document, or restrict how it's used (prevent text and images being copied, for instance). You get to choose which fonts may be embedded in the file, and there's an option to convert URLs into clickable links, where you're even able to define exactly how they'll look (colour, border and line style, and so on).

Please note, this trial version of the program will add a watermark to the bottom of every page in the finished PDF file. Once you've purchased a licence for the program and entered its details, this will disappear.

What's new in 5.37 (see changelog for more info)?

- page tags and text notes that refer to environment variables  (i.e. <%variable_name%>) now refresh the values of the environment variables at each rendering
- fixed an FpFile error 4 that sometimes happened when printing from FinePrint to pdfFactory
- fixed an issue related to Outlook 2016


A useful PDF creator, perhaps a little expensive but with rather more file tweaking options than some of the competition

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
