MadAppLauncher 1.10.0.0
A simple keyboard-oriented program launcher

MadAppLauncher is a simple program launcher which makes it easier to access and run your applications.

Instead of the usual dock, MadAppLauncher uses a basic QWERTY keyboard layout. There are no complex hotkeys to remember: assign programs to individual keys, and then just pressing that key will launch the application.

You also get ten tabs, which correspond to the number keys, and each of these have their own QWERTY layout. This allows you to separate your programs into ten groups, each of which can have up to 30 applications. And if that's not enough, you can save those settings as one file ("Internet", "Work" etc) - and then start as many others as you need.

Every application "key" can be customised in much the same way as a regular Windows shortcut. You can set its name,icon, target, command line arguments, starting folder, window style (normal, hidden, minimised, maximised and so on).

Unusually, you even get some control over the window size and position, so for instance you might decide to launch a program in the bottom half of the screen (assuming the application supports that, anyway). This doesn't always look good - the application may appear somewhere else, then move - but it does work.

And there are all kinds of options here. You can move an application from one key to another; keep MadAppLauncher on top of other windows; show or hide the program when Windows starts, and more.

1.10 is a bug-fix release.

Verdict:

The documentation isn't great, and MadAppLauncher won't win any awards for its visual style, but the program is an interesting and effective way to organise large groups of applications

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.
