SugarSync 4
Quickly backup or synchronise files across your computers

Nowadays we not only have to think about working with multiple computer – such as a home PC and one in the office, or even multiple personal computers – but also multiple devices such as phones and tablets. The process of manually keeping files synchronized and updated between multiple devices can quickly turn into an almost impossible task, but SugarSync is a free app that is on hand to help make things a great deal easier.

The app is available for iOS, Android, Windows and OS X and in a matter of minutes you can specify which of your folder would like to keep in sync. There is special treatment for photo and video files, and the app can be configured so that the moment your take a photo or shoot a video it will be immediately uploaded to your online storage. This is great not only because it means that the files can be accessed from other computers, but also because it serves as a backup.

The mobile version of the app acts much like a remote access tool as it can be used to move, delete and rename files you have stored on your computers and if you’re a music fans you’ll be pleased to discover that the app makes it possible to stream music from your online account. There are also a number of sharing options, so if you would like to make some of your files available to other people you can do so by taking advantage of Twitter, Facebook and email sharing from within the app.

The latest version of the app has been completely redesigned to take full advantage of the new third generation iPad. You’ll immediately notice the new interface which has a distinctly more professional look and feel to it and the GUI has been rearranged so it is now easier than ever to access frequently used options just as photo and video backup. The way information is displayed has completely changed so that it is now possible to see more folder details at once, eliminating the need to keep switching back and forth between the folders you are working with. You can now see the content of multiple folders at the same time thanks to a new pseudo-3D view. There’s also great support for gestures which mean that it is now possible to not only drag and drop but also swipe between views and folders quickly.

SugarSync is an app that is comparable to the likes of Dropbox, but the way it handles automatic upload of photos and videos is very handy. The fact that there is client software available for so many platforms will be welcomed by many people who find that they are working with different devices on a daily basis and still need to be able to access the same files. When you sign up for an account you will automatically receive 5GB of storage space free of charge, but if you should find that this is not enough you do have the option of buying more space.

What's new in v4.2.0?

- Redesigned for iOS7
- Fixed some bugs related to automatic backup of photos and videos

Verdict:

An indispensible sync tool that will soon make you wonder how you ever lived without it

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
