Twitter for Android 5.2.4
Twitter for Android enables you to keep in touch and up to date on the move

Twitter is something of a unique social network that can be used to not only expressed opinion, but also chat with friends, keep up to date with the latest news, share images and much more besides. This is the type of service that is ideally suited for use on the move, and this is precisely what the Android app enables you to do. There is support for multiple accounts so if you keep one for business and one for personal use, they can both be managed from within the same app.

If you are using the app to share photos when you are out and about, you have a selection of image hosting services that you can use, but there is no choice when it comes to URL shortening; in fact there is very little scope for customization and tweaking within the app at all. The basics of accessing your timeline, direct messages and conversation threads is easy enough, as is the process of creating lists to make it easier to manage a huge number of people you follow.

It could be argued that the interface is in need of an overhaul as new features that have been added to Twitter feel somewhat shoehorned into the mobile version of the app. Navigating to different section of the app can take longer than it should, and not everything is intuitively located. It’s something of a shame to find that there is no support for gestures such as swiping left and right to move through different sections of the app, but this is really a minor annoyance.

The latest version of the app, version 5, ships with these new features/changes:

- New design.
- Refreshed look and feel. Home, Activity and Discover now available by swiping in Timelines. 
- Share photos in Direct Messages.
- Send and receive photos via DMs.
- Notifications from your network.
- Choose to view Replies, Retweets, and Favorites from only the people that you follow.
- Receive Push Notifications from the people you care about most.
- Favorite their profile to receive a Push Notification any time they tweet.

Verdict:

It’s not perfect, and there are more feature-rich third party tools available, but the official Twitter app is a solid performer

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.
