Microsoft OneNote for iPad
Microsoft OneNote for iPad keep your notes synchronized between your PC and iPad

Despite having its own mobile platform to support, Microsoft has not forgotten the importance of keeping app available for other devices. The iPhone version of OneNote has been available for a little while now, but the iPad edition has been a long time coming. Here, at last, for owner of iOS tablets, is Microsoft’s OneNote, optimized for the larger screen of the iPad

The app is a surprisingly powerful note taking tool that can be used in a variety of ways. It can be used to takes notes in a meeting or to scratch down ideas when brainstorming a new project. While it is not really a task manager, there is the option of creating to-do lists which enables you to check off different stages of a project as they are completed.

If you have Microsoft Office installed on your desktop computer, it is possible that you have already been working with the desktop version of OneNote. The two apps can be kept in sync using Microsoft SkyDrive and this cloud synchronization also means that your notes are made available online to access from any computer with an internet connection.

While the software is available free of charge, if you are as more demanding user, there may be some hidden costs further down the line. Everyone is able to create up 500 notes without incurring a penalty but if you want to create more than this you will have to buy the unlimited notes in-app purchase. For iPhone users this is just $4.99, but iPad users will find that they are expected to shell out $14.99 – this could be particularly frustrating if you own both an iPad and an iPhone and there is not a universal app available.

What's new in v2.1?

• Create new notebooks within SkyDrive 
• Create, rename or delete sections
• Improved Japanese typing responsiveness
• Automatic list detection
• Bug fixes

Verdict:

A great tool to compliment the desktop version of OneNote, but if you need to be able to create lots of notes it quickly becomes expensive.

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.
