jPDF Tweak 1.1
A collection of useful PDF tools

jPDF Tweak is a Java Swing application which provides a host of ways to manipulate PDF files.

You can split or combine documents, for instance. There are crop, rotate and scaling options. Or you can apply text or image watermarks.

A "Page Number" can adjust the page numbers which appear in your PDF reader, very useful when they don't match the numbers on the document itself.

Elsewhere, there are tools to add bookmarks and attachments. An "Interaction" module can turn documents into a slideshow, where pages flip automatically with your preferred transition effect. And you can both encrypt and decrypt a document, and set or deny all the usual permissions (can't print, can't copy and so on).

There are assorted other tools to optimise and compress PDFs, set their metadata, even export your source PDF as a multipage TIFF.

The interface for all this is, well, basic. There are no toolbars here, no menus, icons or graphics, barely even any colour. You just have to browse eleven tabs, checking boxes, filling tables and generally choosing whatever options you need.

JPDF Tweak isn't particularly difficult to use, though, and with some help from the online manual you'll soon figure out how it all works.


Don't be put off by the Windows 95-style interface, jPDF Tweak has a lengthy list of valuable PDF management features and there's sure to be something here you can use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
