WinScan2PDF 2.31
A tiny tool for saving scanned documents as PDF files

WinScan2PDF is a tiny free program which will work with your scanner to accept one or more pages, and save them as a PDF file.

If your existing scanner software doesn't support PDF export then this has obvious appeal. But even if it does, you may prefer WinScan2PDF for its ease of use. There's no complexity here, no hidden features, no menus, no options to configure - it's all just very straightforward.

All you need to do, then, is click Select Source and choose your scanner.

Click "Scan to PDF" and the program will initiate a page scan. (If this is a multi-page document then check the "Multiple Pages" box.)

And when it's done, enter a file name and your PDF file will be created. That's it.

This does mean there are no other smart options for the PDF. You can't, say, password-protect it if the document is something important. You can't add a header page, or do anything to affect the default output. Still, if you simply need PDF output for your scanned pages then WinScan2PDF works well, and as it's also portable - any settings are held in an INI file - then it's very safe to try. If it doesn't suit your needs, delete the program's download file and installation folder and it'll be wiped from your PC, with no traces remaining.

Version 2.77:
    - New option via the #-Menu: Keep aspect ratio
 

Verdict:

WinScan2PDF delivers precisely what its name promises, quickly converting scanned pages to PDF files. There's nothing else at all - the main interface is just three buttons and a checkbox - so it's rather basic, but also small and very easy to use

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.
