Lion Tweaks 2.0.2
Change the way OS X Lion looks and feels with Lion Tweaks

OS X Lion is the latest version of Apple’s operating system and while it has received glowing reviews, many users have found that there are a number of irritating features and components. There are plenty of compelling reasons to make the move to Lion, but if you have become used to the way Snow Leopard works, you may be in for a surprise in the latest OS. For example, the addition of window animations that, after a while, particularly on a laptop, can prove distracting.

Tweaking tools are not hard to come by but Lion Tweaks is a little different. As the name suggests, the app has been designed for use with OS X Lion. The app has been developed to allow users to change settings that work differently to Snow Leopard as well as providing the option of disabling unwanted features that you either do not use or find annoying. You could perform many of these tweaks through Terminal, but this simple and basic tool enables you to make the changes without having to work about commands.

There are all manner of tweaks available here including the ability to disable permanent scrollbars as well as the new animation effects that accompany various events such as replying to emails. You can also prevent the appearance of the crash dialog, opt to display hidden files, change the appearance of iCal and Address Book and much more besides.

Lion Tweaks enables you to get the best of both worlds. You can benefit from the new features, speed improvements and security enhancements of OS X Lion, but retain the more familiar aspects of Snow Leopard that you have become used to over the years. Available completely free of charge, there is no reason not to try out this handy tweaking tool

Note that you can switch the tweaks back on if you realise, at a later date, you prefer the new Lion features after all.

Lion Tweaks v2.0.2 contains these new fixes/improvements:

- Added warning messages
- Other small fixes

Verdict:

The move to any new operating system can be a chore, but Lion Tweaks is a great free tool that helps to make things a little easier.

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.
