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 1.26 adds a Russian translation, "several small improvements".

Verdict:

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

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.
