Sky Go for Android
Watch Sky on your phone with Sky Go for Android

If you are a Sky subscriber in the UK or Republic of Ireland, this is a free app that enables you to access a range of Sky content on your Android phone which incurring additional charges. Providing you are using one of the supported devices - HTC Desire, HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Incredible, HTC Sensation, Samsung Galaxy S or Samsung Galaxy S II running Android 2.2 or 2.3 – you can watch up to 22 channels on your mobile over a data or wifi connection.

With access to a wide range of movie and sports channels, as well as news, arts and reality TV, there’s shortage of programming to choose from when you’re out and about. The interface is neatly designed so the programming guide is easy to navigate and browsing through the channels is a simple enough affair.

Assuming you can gain access to a strong enough signal for long enough, this is a great way to keep yourself entertained on lengthy journeys, or on occasions when you are away from home but don’t want to miss out on your favourite programmes. If you are going on holiday, you are likely to find that you do not have satellite TV available to you, but if you take your phone with you, you will still be able to watch the channels you are paying for each month.

While the app is a good idea, it is something that has a relatively small audience. Not only do users need to be Sky subscribers, but they also need to be Android users. On top of these they need to be using one of only seven support handsets and not running the latest version of the mobile operating system and you can’t have rooted your device – this is hopefully something that will be addressed in future releases.

Verdict:

A great app in theory, but one that is ultimately a little too limited to recommend it wholeheartedly.

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.
