Foxit Reader Portable
Open and manage your PDF documents with this lightweight reader

PDFs make the distribution of readable documents, easy. The key advantage of a PDF is that you can keep the layout, whilst embedding the fonts, images and other components. This means you can use an advanced desktop publishing tool, such as Quark, to layout a document, publish as a PDF and then distribute it to other users, irrespective of the computer they use.

Better still, PDF documents now enable us to use any design tool to create a document you can then give to a commercial printer for creating your newsletter, poster or invitation. As long you give them a commercial-quality document, you can expect printed material as it looked on your computer screen. Believe it or not, this is a fairly recent event. Only a few years ago you had to use Quark and it had to be a version your commercial printer had installed.

Problem is, you need a PDF reader to open the documents. Macs can do this out of the box, but Windows users need an external program. Most users would consider Adobe Reader, but this can be slow and cumbersome. There are better, smaller and lightweight alternatives.

FoxIt PDF Reader is one of the better alternative PDF readers and the latest version supports the PDF 1.7 standard. It will start swiftly, open and manage large PDF documents and much more.

This is the portable version of Foxit Reader.

Verdict:

Quickly open your PDF documents using this lightweight and super-fast PDF reader

One of those annoying programs that tries to install a browser toolbar. Just wish it didn't cheapen itself with trying to slip in other things you don't want. Otherwise seems to be a decent product.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
