PDF24 Creator
Build, split, merge and digitally sign your PDF files

PDF24 Creator is an easy-to-use suite of tools for building and manipulating PDF files.

Install the program, and, just like many similar applications, it'll add a virtual printer driver to your system. And then, to create a PDF file from just about anything, you simply open the relevant document, choose the Print option, point your application at the PDF24 printer, and it'll produce the file for you.

If you need more control, then viewing the Printer Preferences will allow you to change settings relating to image and page compression, font embedding, and more.

And the PDF24 Editor then allows you to play around with the file you've just created (or any other PDF file you might have available). So you can split or merge PDFs, for instance, rotate pages, or move them from one file to another. There are options to change the file quality. And the program even allows you to create a self-signed digital certificate in just a few clicks, which you can then use to sign your PDF file.

What's new in 8.9.1 (see the changelog for more info)?

- Format options dialog visually improved
- User settings key name changes of the assistant and creator
- Single instance lock of the PDF24 Updater
- More options available in the settings UI
- Auto rotate pages are now enabled by default when converting PS files to PDF
- MAPI mail interface now creates modeless dialogs
- Mail interface selection bug fixed
- Reduced wait times of command processor
- PDF printer auto save command template
- Option NoReader=1 did not work correctly
- Fix for a PDF security settings issue in case of an empty owner password
- Update to QPDF 8.4.1
- Update to Ghostscript 9.27
- Optimized PDF password encoding

Verdict:

PDF24 Creator doesn't offer quite as much control over your PDF files as some of the competition, however its editor and digital certificate features mean the program may still be worth a look

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.71

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.
