Adobe Reader XI v11.0.10
View, print and share PDF files with Adobe Reader

The PDF file has become something of a standard file type, particularly when it comes to distributing documents via the internet. This portable format can be used on a variety of operating systems and each document will look exactly the same on each computer.

Adobe Reader is one of several programs that can be used to view PDF files and provides an easy way to navigate long documents. A search facility makes is possible to jump to instances of a specific word or phrase, while support for hyperlinks, both internal and external, means that you can jump to different sections of a document, or view related information online.

Where the author has allowed it, PDF documents can be printed out, with the guarantee that what you see on screen is what you will see on paper. Support for Adobe Flash means that feature rich interactive documents can be viewed as well, and audio and video formats such as MP3 and QuickTime can also be embedded in PDFs.

As well as simply viewing files, documents can be read aloud, and shared online at the Acrobat.com web site. This is not a lightweight program, and it can suffer from being a little sluggish, but for unrivalled support for the PDF format, this is the program to go for.

Verdict:

Unrivalled PDF supported in a slightly bloated program, but no computer is complete without a copy of Adobe Reader.

Your Comments & Opinion
 

Stick with version 9

Adobe Reader version 10 has changed the UI so it's less user friendly, is buggy and bloated -- what happened, Adobe? Ignore updates to X and keep using the faster, working, friendlier 9.4.4 (latest).

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
