Foxit Reader for Mac 2.3
View and annotate PDF files

Foxit Reader is the latest generation of Foxit Software's lightweight and speedy PDF reader. This Mac and Linux version is not as a fully functional as the Windows build - there's no PDF creation tools, for example, but performance is great, with the program loading documents much faster than Adobe Reader.

There are some limited markup tools - including a highlighter, polygon and cloud-shaped tools, and you can type text directly on to the document too. Recent new features include the ability to take snapshot images of PDFs, plus change the background colour and document text to aid readability.

And document collaboration features allow you to save your PDF files online and work on them with others, via almost any computer with a web browser. This is a commercial service, but a generous 3 month trial period means you've plenty of time to try it out. Check the site for more.

What's new and improved in v2.3 (see entire changelog for more info)?

- Share comments and discussions. Post opinions or ideas on PDF documents in Discussion Board to share and discuss with others.
- Enhanced collaboration with Connected Review. All comment activities on the PDF document can be viewed at a glance and filtered from a comment dashboard.
- Foxit Cloud Reading. Provides users with seamless reading experience across platforms and devices.
- Support for the PDF Tools automated and batch-processing add-on (separate purchase required).
- Users can now opt to print only odd or even numbered pages.

Verdict:

It's a fast and increasingly powerful PDF viewer and collaboration tool, but the Mac and Linux version still lack PDF creation tools.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.23

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 Version 2.17.2?

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
