Manage the privacy settings of all those forgotten social networking apps from one handy place.

Privacy and social networking have never been a hotter topic, and discovering just how many apps have access to your various social networks can be a sobering thought, particularly as you’ll probably not remember half of them even exist, never mind that you signed up for them.

MyPermissions is a free app for Android (including Kindle Fire) and iPhone that allows you to review – and crucially edit – permissions for all the apps and services linked to a wide range of online accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Dropbox, Instagram, FourSquare, and Flickr. More will no doubt follow in due course.

Log into each account separately, and then wait while MyPermissions scans for apps and permissions. Don’t panic if it initially claims it’s found none – the app tends to jump the gun, and once the screen clears a more accurate picture is painted. From here you can manage individual networks by tapping the name, which takes you to the service’s own apps page where you can revoke access manually.

Better still, the add-in will also alert you – either from within the app or using your phone’s notifications system – whenever an app from a supported service (Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram, Yahoo! or Dropbox) accesses your personal information, you know what’s going on and when.

Does it work? Yes it does, although it feels a little clunkier in mobile form than when accessed through your browser, and by visiting the service’s FAQ page [http://mypermissions.com/faq] you can be reassured that you’re not trading one form of privacy compromise for another.

Verdict:


If you’re worried about privacy and security, MyPermissions provides a convenient central location for keeping on top of who’s got what access to your personal information.

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.
