CyanogenMod
Customize and optimize your Android device with CyanogenMod

Based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, CyanogenMod is a custom firmware for your Android device that strips the operating system back to its bare bones and then throws some tweaks into the mix. While the basic look of the operating system may not be to everyone’s tastes, you have the opportunity to use freely available themes to adjust appearance if you feel the need. The focus here is optimizing the performance of your Android device and adding features that are missing from the official OS.

If you have been under the impression that your Android device is lacking in the features department, this may be just what you have been waiting for. Your lock screen can be made more useful than ever thanks to support for lock screen gesture that can be used to access a range of handy options.

There’s also support for OpenVPN as well as an interesting Phone Goggles feature. In this mode you can place filters on the calls and messages that can be sent from your phone – you can place blocks based on number, time and numerous other settings. Other highlights include an incognito mode that can be used to protect your browsing activity and a graphic equalizer that can be used to control music playback.

While this is not an installation for the faint of heart, CyanogenMod will be of serious interest to hardcore users. It should be remembered that while this is considered a stable release, there is potential to cause problems with your device. You can check to see whether your particular Android device is supported by paying a visit to the CyanogenMod web site.

Verdict:

A great way to get the most from your Android device, is extraordinarily powerful, but should be approached with caution.

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.
