Use Google Books Downloader to save your ebooks in new formats

You may have taken advantage of Google Books to purchase and download any of millions of ebooks, and while the service is undeniably useful, you have no doubt noticed that the books are provided in a particular format and there is nothing you can do about that. Or at least that was the case until the arrival of Google Books Downloader which, as the name suggests, makes it possible to download titles from Google Books and save them in the format of your choice.

The application is available for both Windows and Mac and it could hardly be simpler to use. The basic interface merely requires you to enter the URL of the book you are interested in before configuring a small number of basic options. You can choose the folder to which files should be downloaded as well as choosing the format in which they should be saved.

You have the choice of the popular PDF format, as well as PNG and JPEG image formats, and this enables you to tailor your downloads for different needs. You can also choose the resolution at which files should be saved and this enables you to strike a balance between image quality and the size of files – this can be important if you are transferring books to a device that has a limited amount of space available.

The actual process of downloading and saving books is fairly quick, although this is obviously influenced not only by the speed of your internet connection, but also the size of the books you are working with. The results are perfectly acceptable and free you up to use books in whatever way you want.

Verdict:

A quick and effective way to free yourself from the constraints of Google’s ebook service.

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.
