Splashtop Remote Desktop for iPad Free
Access your Mac or PC remotely with Splashtop Remote Desktop for iPad Free

Remote desktop apps for the Mac and PC are reasonably common, and there are also an increasing number available for iOS. One of the most recent entrants to the arena is Splash Remote Desktop which can be used to take control of your Mac or PC using your iPhone or iPad, complete with full video and audio sharing.

As with all such apps you will need to install desktop software in order to be able to access your computer from your mobile device - this can be downloaded free of charge from the Splashtop web site. Once installed, there is virtually no configuration to worry about - just supply the password you are prompted to create during the installation process.

As things currently stand, Splashtop remote desktop can only be used with a wifi connection so this limits remote sessions to working with computers that are on the same network - a future update to the app will allow for remote sessions via 3G and easy connections when firewalls are involved.

A variety of finger gestures can be used to interact with your desktop computer and sound can be routed from your computer to your idevice. Thanks to the fact that you can view the contents of your desktop means that you can enjoy Flash video on your iPhone or iPad, or even play games.

The app can be used to control all versions of Windows from XP upwards, and there is a beta version of the desktop client available for OS X. As with all such tools, the iPad edition of the app benefits hugely from the additional screen real estate, but sterling work has been put into making the iPhone edition as useable as possible - it is just a shame that there isn't a free version available for the iPhone, although the free iPad edition only allows connection for up to five minutes.

Verdict:

A well-executed remote desktop app that feature great options for OS interaction, unique features and impressive performance.

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.
