Toolwiz FlipBook 1.5
Easily turn any text file into a stand-alone 3D ebook

Toolwiz FlipBook is an interesting tool which will quickly turn any text file into a 3D ebook.

In its most basic form, the program is very simple to use. At a minimum, all you have to is point it at your TXT file, click "Read Now", and in a few seconds Toolwiz FlipBook will convert your "file.txt" into a "file.exe" executable.

Launch this EXE file on any Windows PC and you'll see the original text displayed in a 3D book. You can then navigate through the book using the keyboard or mouse (just double-click to watch the page flip over). And when you've finished, just press Esc and the book will close.

If this doesn't quite work for you, then the book can be customised in various ways. You're able to set the book's title and author, for instance, as well as setting its height and width. There's an option to set the book's font. And it's possible to embed an "advertisement", perhaps a link to your website.

This all works well enough, too, but there are problems, mainly caused by the total absence of any documentation.

The Builder has an option to "Find the chapter automatically", for instance, but what does that do? We've no idea.

Hold the left mouse button down on the book's page and you can scribble on it, but does this serve any useful purpose? We've not sure.

And the books themselves have a menu option called "Comment Mode", which also sounds worth knowing about. Sadly, you won't find any details on it here.

Still, even now Toolwiz FlipBook does provide an easy way to turn text files into ebooks, so if that sounds appealing then it's definitely worth a look. Hopefully some documentation will arrive in a future update to help us get even more from the program.

Verdict:

Toolwiz FlipBook is an easy-to-use tool for turning text files into ebooks. The program's presentation is a little sloppy right now, though, and it desperately needs some documentation.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:
