A great Blu-ray media player software for Windows-based computers.

Icecream PDF Split&Merge is a powerful tool for merging, splitting and combining PDF files. You can choose one of 4 splitting modes: split PDF files in single pages, remove certain pages, select splitting intervals or split by groups of pages.

Merging PDF files or their certain pages is also really easy with Icecream Split and Merge. Program enables you to work with password-protected documents and preview PDF documents. Setting meta data, permissions and password for output files is not a problem at all as well. And all that goes with most thought through GUI: add files easily by drag-and-dropping them or through Windows right-click menu and much more.

System Requirements:

Windows 2000/ 2003/ XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 8.1/ 10; 1.33Ghz Intel, AMD or any other compatible processor/ faster processor for netbooks; 512MB of RAM (1GB for better performance); 250MB to 300MB of free disk space

Works as advertised. I just merged 4 PDF files containing over 1200 pages. The merge took less than 10 seconds. I then deleted page 999 without a problem. This is a keeper. Thanks for the trial. :)

I'm looking for a program that will allow me to add a cover page to my ebooks. Some of the ebooks I have don't have cover pages. I thought this program might do the trick, but when trying to merge files it won't recognize jpg files. Any one have some useful advice?

Paste the jpg to a blank Word doc page, resize it, center it , crop it, etc. in Word, then print the page as a pdf file.

Mauro ,

Another method, open the jpeg in a general purpose graphics program, edit or crop if desired, and then Save As PDF.
I use IrfanView (a free graphics display and edit program) to do this.
Then merge the cover/image pdf with the rest of the text pdf.

EXACTLY what I've been looking for! Installed smoothly. Easy to use. I just combined 152 individually scanned pdf documents into a single file. Took about 2 seconds to run the job. Thank you!!!

Not sure why people are having issues. I followed the directions and it installed without issue on my Win10 laptop and activated with the supplied code and created a desktop icon. Tried to merge three files and it worked the first time. Thanks GOTD and Icecream.

SO... I installed the software without any problem at all. But MY problem is that I cannot for the life of me find out how to register it for the Pro version... As was mentioned earlier by another poster, there is no option to go to Settings and then to register with the provided Key. HELP, please!

There is no option to register as instructed in the Readme file ("go to Settings menu --> Activate PRO account..."). No way to know if it's registered. However, did split a 4 page doc into 4-1page docs in about 1 second! They look and act like the original. Have been using previous giveaway version successfully with no problems.

in my installation I found the option to activate the Pro version, now that it's been upgraded the option disappeared but the software says it is "PRO"

When a program is offered by GAOTD, I like to what it could do for me. In the short time given, it is not possible to test it myself. So, either I read what others have commented here, or go to the Homepage to see what it can do. There is a video on the home page, with useless music. I hate instruction videos without voice. There is no need to make is so short and rushed. It doesn't help much.

I love PDF tools, and when they become available, I want to try them out. My complaint is that I am looking for a PDF tool that will allow me to take pieces of a page, and move them to another page. Moving full pages isn't that useful to me, when I am trying to create documents. Is there anyone that knows of a PDF tool that can allow me to cut sections of a page and paste them to another document? It would be much easier than retyping a whole paragraph, and being able to copy or cut pictures from one document to put them in another would be a huge help.

PDF-Xchange, select and copy anything from any page and then paste into any word processor.

Joe You may find it easier to do a PDF to Word /RTF conversion if you're looking to copy and paste text in a pdf. Search online for recommended payware and freeware -- though don't expect too much of this type of software: I haven't yet found an app that's 100% dependable.

Mike, full conversions are messy and require editing, Joe asked for copy and paste selectively.

Hi Fellow GAOTD reviewers. I would like to raise something that has been a concern for a while. The publishers of the Software offers on GOATD provide us with software (sometimes for life, other times for a period only). The fact is that we have full functionality of a commercial product at no cost. I enjoy the freeware recommendations and find them very valuable as well. My understanding is that the publishers require the software to be assessed and evaluated. Additionally, improvements should be recommended that would provide the software with a better bang-for-buck ratio. Many times I see software thumbed down because the reviewer does require the software or it see it as necessary. Something like: simplify the registration process, change the color scheme, add the ability to export to...., etc. Please let us keep in mind the offer as well as the value proposal to the publishers to use a site like GAOTD. I write this piece because I also dabble in programming from time to time and appreciate criticism that would enable me to improve and maybe even distinct my software. Please note: this is not written because of any specific review or comment that has been made, nor is it directed at anyone in particular. It is just something I felt that should be mentioned. It might also be that my understanding for the whole GAOTD concept is flawed. Just my 5 cents worth. Have a great weekend. Ciao

Hello

I have been and I am always and still a proud grateful abonné faithful follower of GAOTD.

My special thanks go to Giovanni who has been a great and fantastic contributor (Salve, Giovanni ! ;*) ) in as much as his returns were honest, professionnal, detailed and last but not least : proposing free alternatives.

Thank you GAOTD & Giovanni!

Happy new year!

I totally agree with your comments and would like to add or emphasize some things you mention. Many of the suggestions that I see posted are not important to me at all. Things such as change the color scheme seldom bother me but seems to be important to the general public. I really appreciate all the work that goes into this site and the publishers for their efforts and offering the software in exchange for comments and suggestions on improvement.

The one thing that I do not like is for some people who post comments complaining about the developer lying or misleading users on what a program can do where the developer never claimed it could do it. There is a total lack of understanding what can or cannot be done and how software/computers actually work. Many comments are made based on assumptions rather than facts and usually these are the most extreme comments.

One other thing is the thought that should a program be voted down because you don't have a need or use for it. If everyone votes a program down because they have no use for it then the publisher would be wise to quit wasting time on it. I think that Lee was right on with his comments but I do wish people would base their comments on facts instead of assumptions that have nothing to do with the offering at all.

dear Lee,
Sometimes, in fact quite often, the software you call commercial products, are outdated or do not function properly.
There have been and I'm sure will continue to be "goodies" that the interested user would have considered buying or had previously bought anyway and is glad to have a free update.
As for recommendations towards improvements, it is virtually impossible to completely assess a piece of software within 10 minutes. Some ideas may snap to mind straight away, but then there is the price consideration.
Take today's offer from icecreamapps.com. Half a year ago I did not even know that company but as I was sniffing around for affordable pdf merging, splitting, editing software for my laptop (desktop has expensive Adobe Acrobat Pro, alas only single licence) I felt lucky when I found the free version of today's offer. Now, it would be totally unrealistic to expect a replica of Acrobat Pro's features in a product a fraction of the price.
Icecreamapps.com as anyone can see is a company with a modern and clear representation (aka HP) on the Internet.
However at least 80 % of the software bits offered here are also-runs. And when you say you also do some programming and would like to get response then I say, offer it either as freeware for the early versions or with reasonable trial periods, but fully functional.
I do not see GiveawayoftheDay as beta-testing outlet but as a place where solid pieces of software are presented but where programmers and start-up companies with limited marketing budgets are given the chance to make themselves known around the world.
If the voters here rate a product down because they went through a hellish experience to get the software activated or running then I do not even bother to go further but a simple textfile with a generic registration key is all you need.
Certainly my understanding of the Giveaway philosophy is that giveaway in normal business terms means simply marketing. Nothing philanthrophic, perfectly legal, understood all over the world.
Why such "heroes" as Giovanni have disappeared is all too obvious. Too many good or better alternatives.
Since the revamping of this site the quality of offers is imho certainly gone down.
But then today's offer - a clear winner.

I know it's free today but I'm not sure why anyone would pay for this when Unity PDF does all this and is portable.

Reply   |   Comment by BranBuds  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

BranBuds I was under the impression the developer had ceased work on UnityPDF and the website was for sale. A pity, because yes, it was an alternative freeware to PDFill.

Yes. That is the case but it is still available for download from portablefreeware.com

Currently $19.95 on the developer's website for a lifetime license -- kudos to Icecream Apps for not joining in the prevalent "recurring license" software con -- this "Pro" version differs from Icecream's always-free version by removing the 40-page limit per split and three file limit per merge restrictions.

Worth downloading and testing then by anyone who needs to manage their PDFs; the fact that there are two versions means that even if you need to re-install at a future date, you at least have the option to go for Icecream's free rather than Pro offering. That said, however:

This developer and this software continue to be up against some serious, longstanding freeware competition in the form of PlotSoft's entirely free PDF management suite:

PDFill Free PDF Tools has no usage restrictions and no merge / split limitations. Gloriously old-fashioned in eschewing any pretence to a jazzed-up GUI, it sets out all user options on one screen and lets you click on your preferred choice -- simple, fast, effective. Welcome back, Win98.

I've used PDFill Free PDF Tools for years in tandem with Bullzip freeware PDF printer (creator) and in my own experience nothing has so far come along to beat this always-free combination. Ghostscript is needed for both to function, but that's hardly an imposition.

Thanks then, Icecream Apps and GOTD for today's offer, but I'll pass; for my own needs -- and everyone's will be different -- there really isn't much in this PRO version than is offered for free by PDFill.

It would be great if this program were portable. I could use this more easily if there were a USB version.

Have you tried the (free) PDF Tools bit of PDFill?

That seems to work a treat under all circumstances. Highly recommended.
