Avira Free Android Security 3.0
Secure and locate your missing phone with Avira Free Android Security

While mobile phones are valuable enough in their own right, it is the data contained on it that is the most valuable. If you lose your phone it is likely that you will be able to claim it on your insurance, but all of your contacts, messages, photos and other data could be lost forever – and in the case of phone theft, it may well be the case that your phone includes personal details that could be used in identity theft or other crimes.

Avira Free Android Security is, perhaps unsurprisingly, a free security tool for your Android device that can help you out in the event that your phone is lost or stolen. If you have simply misplaced your phone and hunting around the house has not helped, the app can be used to make it scream – even if you have it switched to silent mode – and this could alert you, or someone near it, to its whereabouts.

If you discover that your phone has in fact been stolen, there are additional options that can helps to keep your data safe. You can use the Avira web site to remotely log into your phone and lock it so that it cannot be used by anyone else, but there is another handy feature that comes into play if the phone is found. While it is possible to lock out other users from accessing your phone, it is possible to leave available the option to call you (on a different number) or the emergency services.

If none of these options help you to track down your phone, you can use GPS to display its rough location on a map. As well as enabling you remotely lock and track your phone, the web interface can be used to monitor your phone’s battery level and can be used to manage multiple devices. If your phone is not where you expect it to be for whatever reason, this free app gives you the best chance of getting back, or at least ensuring that your data does not fall into the wrong hands.

What's new in v3.0?

• Support for profile names and photos
• Instant status on the console (“Protected” or “Action Required”)
• “Remote Scream” renamed to “Remote Yell”
• Ability to test “Yell” & “Locate” anti-theft features from within the app
• Simplified blacklist (no more filters, quickly and easily clear blocked events)

Verdict:

 Such a great security tool, it’s amazing to find that it is free of charge. A great tool for travellers and the careless alike.

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.
