Free Music Downloader 1.30
Easily search for and download MP3s

Free Music Downloader is a simple tool for locating and downloading MP3 files.

The program comes in the form of a single executable (no installation required, no account to set up), so it's very convenient to use. Just unzip it and you're ready to go.

And once launched, enter an artist or song title, click Search, and the program will check a variety of sources for matches: www.last.fm, vkontakte.ru, goear.com, youtube.com, GrooveShark.com, SoundCloud.com, mixcloud.com, BandCamp.com, Hypem.com, Xiami.com, ProstoPleer.com and 8Tracks.com.

(This list can be configured, which may help if you're concerned about copyright issues. You could tweak the program to only search YouTube, say, in which case it just becomes an easy way to download MP3's of particular clips.)

Free Music Downloader isn't Google, and the search isn't particularly smart. If you don't enter precisely what you need we found Free Music Downloader would return lots of irrelevant results.

For the most part, though, the program does a good job of finding whatever you need, and grabbing copies is as easy as selecting the relevant matches and clicking the Download button.

And if you plan to download a lot (and you've a fast internet connection), then it's worth noting that Free Music Downloader can download up to 10 files simultaneously. Click Settings and set "Simultaneous Downloads" to whatever works for you.

Verdict:

A simple and easy-to-use music download tool with none of the usual adware annoyances

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.
