Freemake Music Box
Stream music to your computer for free with Freemake Music Box

Almost anything you might do at your computer can be made more enjoyable by the addition of music. If you are writing a letter to a friend, listening to music you both enjoy helps to create a sense of connection, while listening to something calming whilst working on a spreadsheet can make the sometimes daunting tasks of working with figure somewhat more bearable. Finding the right music to listen to is important, and this is something that Freemake Music Box can help you with.

This free app provides you with access to literally millions of freely available tracks which you can stream to your computer, not only free of charge, but also legally. This is great news for anyone who works with more than one computer. It may well be the case that you have purchased music on your home computer but you want to listen to a particular track in the office. Rather than re-purchasing the same track, or hunting it down illegally, just fire up Freemake Music Box and you should be able to find what you are looking for.

Using the program could hardly be similar. The application is essentially a music player with a built in search engine. After launching Music Box, simply enter the artist, album or track you’d like to listen to ad hit Enter. From the list of search results that is displayed you can opt to play individual entries or add them to a playlist which can be shuffled or played on repeat.

While the app is very useful and is sure to be an excellent source of free entertainment, there is room for improvement. Music Box can be very slow to start, and the range of features is somewhat limited. These are issues that are going to be addressed in future releases and there are also web-based and mobile versions of the service to look forward to.

Version 1.0.6 brings (Changelog):
    - Added drag-n-drop support

Verdict:

A great way to ensure that you are always able to listen to the music you love.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
