FSS Google Books Downloader 1.4.4.6
Easily download books from the Google Books service as PDF, JPG or PNG

Google Books is a great service for finding ebooks, but not so convenient when it comes to downloading local copies.

If you find this a problem, though, you can always install FSS Google Books Downloader, a simple tool which makes it easy to grab books and convert them to your folder of choice.

The process starts at the Google Books site. Browse it as normal, find a book you want to download, and copy the Preview link from your browser to the clipboard.

Now launch FSS Google Books Downloader, and click "Paste URL". The program will recognise the address, and download and display the book cover and summary.

If that looks okay, you're able to choose your output folder and preferred format (there's support for saving your book in a single PDF file, or multiple JPG or PNG images).

And then clicking "Download" will grab a local copy of the book for you.

The program isn't exactly sophisticated. In particular, there's no option to customise the downloaded pages (you can't choose the resolution or JPEG quality settings, for instance).

FSS Google Books Downloader is straightforward and easy to use, though, and if you're a regular on the Google Books site then you might find it very handy indeed.

Verdict:

A rather basic but easy-to-use tool for downloading your favourites from Google Books

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
