PDFCreator 2.4.0
Quickly create industry-standard PDF files

PDFCreator is a straightforward tool that allows you to create a PDF file from just about any Windows application.

The program installs as a virtual printer driver. To create your PDF file, simply open the source document, choose Print in your application, and point it at the PDFCreator printer. Click Save, specify a file name and folder, click Save again, and that's it - in just a second or two you'll have a PDF version of your file.

If you need more control then you can optionally enter a title, author, subject or keywords for the document, and all these will be visible to readers via their PDF viewer.

And clicking PDF > Options reveals a host of more advanced settings. You're able to configure exactly how images will be compressed in your PDF files, for instance. And we're not talking a single setting, like most of the competition. PDFCreator provides separate controls for colour, greyscale and monochrome images, and each let you define details like the precise JPEG compression factor involved, optional resampling method and resolution.

Other options allow you to decide how and when fonts will be embedded in your file, and the colour model you want to support. Security features include the ability to encrypt your file, password-protect it, or add restrictions (you can prevent the document being printed, or modified, for instance). And it's even possible to sign your PDF file with a digital certificate, although PDFCreator won't help you create this: you'll have to source one for yourself.

See the changelog for new feature information.

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+)
