Howard E-Mail Notifier
Howard E-Mail Notifier keeps you up to date with your Microsoft email account

If you have a Microsoft email account – this may be a Hotmail.com, Outlook.com or Live.com address – you will no doubt have become used to checking your email online. If you have decided to use an email client such as Outlook to manage you email, you can receive desktop notifications when you receive new mail, and this is something that Howard offers without the need for an email client.

The idea is very simple. This tiny application with display a system tray notification icon whenever you receive a new email in your Microsoft email account. This is helpful in its own right as it means that there is no need to keep manually checking the state of your inbox to see if you have new messages.

When the tray notification appears, you can choose what happens when you click it – you could opt to open a particular email client, or switch to the relevant website. Sadly, there is only support for a single email account, but this is a limitation that can be overcome if you configure your email account to pull in messages from multiple accounts.

There are very few options that you need to concern yourself with. You can change the style of the icon that is used in the taskbar – so you can choose one that matches the particular email service you are using – and you can also choose how often the app should check for mail. If you receive a high volume of emails, you may want to check every 30 seconds, but if you receive less checking every couple of hours may be enough.

Version: 1.46:·

New: iNotes support added

Verdict:

If you’re an Outlook.com user, this is a great tool that makes it easier to monitor your emails.

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.
