PDFFill Tools 11.0
Create, convert, watermark, encrypt and process PDFs

PDFFill Tools is a useful collection of utilities for working with PDF files.

The suite allows you to scan pages directly to a PDF, for example. You can convert images or PostScript files to PDFs, and a bundled virtual printer driver creates PDFs from any printable document.

There are further tools to split and merge your files, encrypt and decrypt them, or customise them with watermarks (text and image). You're able to add headers and footers, rotate and crop your documents, edit their metadata, work with form fields, and more. The program can even be launched from buttons in Microsoft Office applications and Internet Explorer, in theory at least (when we tried it, our copy of Word crashed).

While this sounds great, there is a problem: the interface. Each of these tools is represented by a separate dialog box, with hardly any visual feedback at all. If you're adding an image watermark, say, you don't get to view the target file first; you can't point and click where you'd like your picture to be, and there's no way to preview how the finished pages will look. Instead you must choose your image, set its position in inches, and export the file before you get to find out.

Once you understand how everything works, though, this isn't a major issue. The individual tools have some useful options and settings, and generally work very well. And if you do need a more visual approach, a trial version of PDFFill's PDF Editor is included with the package. It has all the features of the tools, and more, and can be yours for a very reasonable $19.99.

Verdict:

It's more like fifteen separate utilities than a single application, but PDFFill Tools is easy to use, with plenty of power, and a must-have if you regularly work with PDFs.

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
