PDF Creator Plus, by PEERNETis a powerful product for creating and working with PDF (Personal Document Format) files. The PDF format was created by Adobe and has become extremely popular. With PDF Creator Plus you can create your own PDF files and even do highlighting. One very cool feature is the ability to merge existing PDF documents into one file. You can also merge other document type including emails, HTML pages, Word documents, and more.

PDF Creator Plus lets you take PDF files and rearrange the pages into an order that better suits you. You can annotate your documents and add comments, graphics, and so on. The program also supports "bookmarks"as well as hyperlinks. That's a powerful feature to have. You can select the level of compression used on graphics, preview your PDF documents,output your documents to PDF, BMP, TIF, JPG, and more.

PDF Creator Plus is very easy-to-use and intuitive. It's perfect for users with all levels of computer experience. PDF files have to be read using Adobe Acrobat Reader and it's a very stable, safe document format. So, if you've been hearing about PDF files and would like to be able to create and edit them, check out PDF Creator Plus. It maybe exactly what you've been looking for.


NeoDownloader, by Neowise Software, Inc.is a slick program that was one of my Quick Picks. As you all know there are tons of graphics, movies, and audio tracks out there on the Internet. Perhaps you find a site that looks like it has some good ones. Yes, but who has time to sit there and download each one? Not me.That's where NeoDownloader steps in. And you have to see this to appreciate it. In testing it out I visited a number of sites. All I had to do was drag the Web site link to the program, and drop it. We were off to the races with NeoDownloader.

NeoDownloader proceeded to download every graphic and audio file from the site. Immediately I could see what was being downloaded and if I wanted I could easily delete anything I didn't really want. What a timesaver, though, to be able to delete the unwanted things rather than having to manually save the things you want. Amazingly, if you want you can have 10 sessions going at one time. You probably also want to make sure you have enough disk space. The program will play video and audio content for you and you can have a slideshow of all the graphics it collects. Neat!

NeoDownloader is really easy-to-use and can be used by users with all levels of experience. It has lots of features and some configurable options so it works the way you want it to. So, if you'd like to haul in a big catch of audio, graphics, and video, take the time to check out NeoDownloader. Very slick, very fast, and very easy.


602PC SUITE, by Software602, Inc.is a viable alternative to Microsoft Office and at a greatly reduced price. 602PC SUITE is an "office" product that has support for the programs found in Microsoft Office. It can work with Excel spreadsheets as well as Word documents. This is one of a number of "Office"alternatives that have become available recently. It also gives you the ability to export documents in PDF format.

602PC SUITE is full-featured and I'd be willing to say that most people who try it would not find anything missing that they currently use in Office. You can edit Word documents and save them. Edit Excel spreadsheets and save them. Create PDF files quickly and easily. You can also edit your photos because the program comes with a complete system for doing so. So, if you'd like an alternative to the higher price diversion, you have to take a look at 602PC SUITE. It does all the things that most people need it to do. I recommend it.


HandyZIP, by CNetXis a neat program for keeping files compressed on your Pocket PCdevice. It's also the first Pocket PC software reviewed for my Picks. It can compress files and decompress them, and it works quickly. Smaller size is very important on handheld/palm devices. You need all the spaceyou can get. HandyZIP helps give you that.

HandyZIP lets you compress files so they are smaller when you have to send them by email. They'll also take up less space in memory or on a storage card. You can view the contents of compressed files, check a files integrity, and create new ZIP files on the fly. So, if you've been looking for a way to compress files on your Pocket PC, your search may be over. Take a look at HandyZIP.
