Icecream PDF Converter
Convert many file formats to and from PDF

Icecream PDF Converter is a powerful tool for converting many file types to PDFs, or converting PDFs to individual images.

The process starts by choosing a conversion type ("From PDF" or "To PDF"), then dragging and dropping your target files onto the program.

PDF files can be converted to various image formats (JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, EPS, WMF), as well as having their text (just the text, not images or document layout) extracted to HTML, TXT, DOC, ODT or RTF files.

There's good support for creating PDFs, with the program importing some Office documents (DOC/ DOCX, XLS/XLSX, ODT, ODS), images (JPG, PNG, BMP), ebooks (EPUB, MOBI, FB2), HTML and more.

You get various options to control the conversion process. It's possible to extract page ranges from a document, for instance (10-15, 123-131), or to merge various input files into a single PDF.

Finally, you're able to choose the output folder. When converting "From PDF" this defaults to a subfolder (MyFile.PDF > MyFile\MyFile_1.JPG, MyFile\MyFile_2.JPG), but you can select whatever other folder you like.

This didn't always run smoothly for us. One test PDF had its images missing from the original DOCX, and extracting text from PDFs also had some issues (the text appeared correctly, but we noticed some binary garbage where images used to be).

Text extraction can take a while, too. Even on a relatively powerful PC, the program could take up to 4-5 seconds per page when converting PDF > RTF; if you're batch-converting documents with hundreds of pages then patience will be required.

Most of our conversions delivered excellent results, though, and if you need this kind of tool then Icecream PDF Converter is worth a try.

Version 2.81 adds (changelog):

- OCR fix for PDF to DOC conversion

Verdict:

It seems to have a few bugs, but Icecream PDF Converter is still a very new program, and even now has more than enough PDF power to be useful.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
