WebSite X5 Free 11.0
WebSite X5 is designed for novices – build your website using drag and drop.

Getting yourself a free web presence is pretty easy these days, with all manner of template-led tools available to get you started. WebSite X5 Free will appeal to those who have signed up for hosting, but who don’t want to be restrained by any web-building tools provided by their web host.

The free version is a fully functional cut-down version of a much more powerful package, and comes with some hefty limitations, the most notable of which is a maximum of 10 pages per site. If you can live with that restriction, you’ll be glad to learn you can create as many websites as you need, and they won’t be plagued with advertising either.

It’s simple to use: fire up the app, then click Start. Create a new project and work your way through the wizard, filling in the details and choosing a template (50 are available in the free version). Once tweaked, set up your site map, and then select a page to set up its layout (using a table-based approach) before dragging and dropping your choice of elements on to the page – the free version supports six types of object only: text, images, video/audio. social network buttons, map and Flash animations.

Once placed on the page, double-click an element to define and tweak it – either by adding and styling text, inserting and editing images and so on. Repeat for the rest of your site and then upload the finished version to your web space using the built-in engine.

It’s all very simple – the wizard-driven approach makes it a good choice for novices, but those with design skills may find WebSite X5’s table-like design too limiting.  There are a range of paid-for upgrades too, starting from €20 for the Home Edition, which raises the limit to 25 pages and 250 templates per site.

Verdict:

A simple way to build a reasonable looking website for free - perfect for novices, but more experienced users will find it too restrictive.

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.
