Windows Phone Connector for Mac
Keep your files in sync with Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac

Mac owners may not seem to be the most likely candidates for buying a Windows Phone over an iPhone, but there are certainly plenty of them in existence. Just as iTunes makes it easy for iPhone, iPod and iPad owners to synchronise their mobile devices with their computer, Windows Phone Connector or Mac provides much the same functionality or Microsoft handsets.

The software can be used in conjunction with either a Windows Phone handset, or a Zune HD device and can automatically synchronise your iTunes library with your device. Music, television shows, podcasts and other media can be synchronised providing DRM is not in use.

Any photographs or videos you have stored on your device can be quickly imported into iPhoto. The software also provides and easy way of updating your Microsoft handheld whenever updates are released.

Considering this is Microsoft software, it feels remarkably at home under iOS. This is an essential installation or any Windows Phone owners although some users are likely to find that the option to synchronise with iCal and Address Book is a frustrating oversight.

Windows Phone Connector for Mac 3.0 brings these changes:

• Support for Windows Phone 8 devices
• Drag and drop files between Windows Phone and your Mac desktop
• Drag and drop files from Finder to your Windows Phone 8 devices
• Support for iPhoto 9.3.2 and Aperture 3.3.2
• Support for battery charge state (Windows Phone 8 devices)
• Enhanced capability support for Ringtone files (Windows Phone 8 devices)
• Support for Retina display Macs

Verdict:

An excellent first release from Microsoft that just goes to show that cross-platform compatibility is entirely possible.

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.
