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 Version 4.4.0

- Compatibility with iOS 9
- Improvements to the Photo Gallery for your viewing pleasure
- Assorted bug fixes

Verdict:

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

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
