Gmail Notifier Pro
Use Gmail Notifier Pro to check you Gmail account, calendar and news

Gmail is an immensely popular web based email service, but as with any such service it can be awkward to access. Keeping a browser tab open can be a pain as it means having to keep checking back to see if you have new mail, while running a dedicated email client such as Outlook uses up system resources. Gmail Notifier Pro offers an alternative.

The app sits in the notification area of the taskbar and can be used to check a single or multiple Gmail accounts on your behalf. The program supports themes and if you are working with multiple accounts you can colour code notifications so you can tell at a glance which account you have received an email in.

The notification popup can be used to mark emails as read, delete unwanted messages and even compose and reply to mail without the need to visit the Gmail web site. Gmail Notifier Pro can be used for more than just checking your mail though; it also integrates with Google Calendar and Google News so you can keep an eye on all of your Google accounts from one place.

The unregistered/free version of the software can be used to monitor up to two email accounts, but for a small ($7) registration fee it is possible to use it with an unlimited number. As an added bonus, both the free and registered versions of the program can be used as portable apps so you can take your email checker with you as you move from one computer to another.

What's new? See full changelog for more:

Gmail Notifier Pro 5.3.4 includes corrections for Google Contacts, to work better with the new interface for contacts provided by Google.

This release also uses more secure digital signatures for the installer and the software. The digital signature confirms the software author and ensures that the software has not been altered or corrupted since it was signed.

Verdict:

A brilliant notification tool for Gmail users which has the added benefits of RSS and calendar alerts.

Useful tool

Posted by: N^2 , 01 March 2013 23:28

I tried out the free 2-account version and then bought the full individual version. A bit expensive at $12.95 (not the $7 mentioned on this downloadcrew site). Was able to set up multiple emails. Works smoothly enough.
1. The UI is pretty straightforward and the options for popup/sound notifications are very customizable.
2. Connects to gmail and non-google mail, such as Yahoo! and third-party. Set up is straightforward. When I set up IMAPs, I got the details of each acct from what I'd already set up on my smartphone.
3. Some issues with having a VPN on. Seems to do ok except when it comes out of sleep mode - the VPN gets screwed up. Maybe it's the VPN and not this sw.
Overall, very useful. I don't use MS Outlook and this is a good way for me to get all my mails in one place, on my laptop.

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.
