BullGuard Mobile Security for Android
A comprehensive mobile security suite

BullGuard Mobile Security for Android is a comprehensive internet security suite for your mobile device. Up to three devices, in fact, with the standard licence, and this can be upgraded to cover five.

Once installed BullGuard's powerful antivirus engine automatically scans your system, detecting and blocking malware before it can do any harm.

This release now checks apps before they're installed, again blocking anything untrustworthy.

Better still, new cloud-based technology ensures you always get the benefit of the latest antivirus definitions, without the hassle of regular updates, improving performance and keeping battery-draining system load to a minimum.

If your phone goes missing then the antitheft system provides strong all-round protection. A Scream function locates devices nearby; GPS location picks up everything else; you can remotely lock or wipe a device, and you can have the program automatically lock or wipe data if anyone tries to change the SIM card.

A new Call Manager automatically blocks spam from short code numbers (anything with 5 or less digits). Other numbers may be added manually, from your contacts or call history. A Blocked Items tab shows you what has been blocked recently, and a Whitelist ensures trusted numbers can always reach you.

Parental Controls allow parents to monitor installed apps, calls, messages and pictures, as well as locating a device, and all from any internet-enabled computer.

A revamped backup tool offers one-tap backup for your contacts, calendar and messages. Sadly, while it can also back up your files (music/ video/ pictures/ more), you'll need to purchase backup space for these separately. This isn't cheap, either, with prices starting from an extra $8 for 5GB, to $130 for 100GB.

Verdict:

BullGuard Mobile Security for Android provides solid security for a wide range of threats. The cloud-based antivirus engine should improve accuracy and cut its battery-draining resource use, too. Backup space is a little expensive, but the suite scores highly where it matters, and the 15-day trial build means you can try before you buy.

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.
