Find My Friends
Discover where your friends are with Find My Friends

There are numerous uses for location aware apps, such as tagging photos and triggering reminders, but Find My Friends makes it possible to find out where your friends are currently located. The app enables you to send a request to your friends, and providing they also have the app installed, they will be able to share their location with you.

You can view the location of your friends that have chosen to share their information on a map and this data can be used in a variety of ways. if you are planning on meeting up with people in an unknown location, the app can be used to keep track of where you are in relation to each other. The app is even able to provide directions to make it easier to meet up.

Parents may well be interested in using the app to keep an eye on where their children are, but this will involve convincing them to share their location. For anyone concerned about the privacy implications of broadcasting their location, there are simple options available that enables you to control what is shared, to whom, and when.

In order to make use of Find My Friends you need to be using an iPhone, iPod or iPad running iOS 5, as well as having an iCloud account. If you do not already have an iCloud account, you have the option of creating one from within the app.

Verdict:

An interesting use of location awareness that can be used for fun or peace of mind.

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.
