Use DesktopNotifier to receive desktop alerts from your Android device

When you are sitting at your computer, it can be annoying to have to keep picking up your phone every time it vibrates or sounds an alert. You are already using another machine, so it would make sense if you could use it to keep track of all of the notifications you receive. This is exactly what DeskNotifier enables you to do, freeing you from the restraints of your cell phone or tablet.

This free program is available as a Windows and Android app and enables you to receive Android notification on your desktop computer provided both devices are connected to the same wireless network. The setup process is not quite as simple as it could be. Once you have installed the desktop and Android versions of the app you will need to start by activating the app in the accessibility settings of your Android device. You will then need to use the app’s configuration screen to determine your device’s IP address and enter this into the desktop version of the program.

If you are choosing to charge up your phone or tablet whilst you are at your computer, the connection can also be established with a USB cable, but the wireless option is far more useful. Whenever you receive a message, email, or some other form of notification is generated on your Android device, a pop up will appear from the taskbar of Windows. There is a fairly impressive range of support apps, including Facebook, Viber, Astrid Tasks and all of the standard built in features of Android.

This in itself is useful enough, but the app goes further than this, enabling you to send SMS messages from your desktop. To do this, you just need to right click the app icons in the notification area and select the SMS option to be presented with a list of your contacts. Select whoever you would like to message, enter your text and hit Send. The ability to use your computer keyboard is a much faster way to type messages than most Android keyboards – a great time saver.

Verdict:

A great tool for office workers, but handy for anyone with an Android device

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.
