3 more giveaways not posted about elsewhere. Leowo iTransfer is an iDevice to itunes to pc transfer tool that expires Oct 31. I don't know what time zone that is so get it ASAP. http://www.leawo.com/software-giveaway.html
Aimersoft Video Studio Express is a video editor for Windows and Mac that supposedly expires on November 8 but I didn't see a date on the official website. http://www.aimersoft.com/halloween/index.html#product
Wondershare PDF to Word Converter is a PDF to Word converter or else it is the worst named software in history. LOL This deal expires November 11. http://my.wondershare.com/events/member-activity.php
Please note that most giveaways posted here and in others' posts also include huge discounts up to 75 or 80% off on the companies' other software, so if you are interested in buying something this would be a pretty good time.

Eric: sincere thanks for the heads-up -- news of freebies and special offers is always welcome. Just a word of warning though for anyone thinking of going to the trouble and time of downloading and installing the Wondershare PDF to Word Converter: don't bother. It's been kicking around for some time in various guises, including Anybiz PDF to Word Converter, and neither the earlier version of Anybiz that for some unfathomable reason I've still found on this computer, nor this whizzbang up-to-date offering in the Wondershare name, is of any practical use unless the pdf file to be converted has only a very, very few images. Otherwise, it outputs a converted Word doc with no text. . . at all. Just the pix. Which kind of defeats the whole purpose of using the converter in the first place for editable text retreival.

Wondershare brazenly admits that its PDF to Word converter doesn't, er, actually convert much. If at all. Where a pdf is rich in images, then it's necessary to fork out a ludicrous $80 to purchase the so-called PRO version. Ye Gods: are they mad?

Anyway. I've just uninstalled that old AnyBiz rubbish and now uninstalled the newly acquired Wondershare PDF to Word rubbish, too. And gone back to the entirely free and fully functional software from here:

Free PDF to Word Doc Converter may not be perfect, but for the price charged -- i.e., nowt -- it trounces Wondershare in every respect.

For what it is worth, AnyBizSoft Studios as bought (always owned?) by Wondersahre, so it is no surprise the software comes in multiple different names.

That said, I swear the program went freeware last year…

I gave HelloPDF a shot. To be honest, it is terrible. In my experience Wondershare PDF to Word Converter is a lot better. Then again, I haven't used it for a long time now.
