BlackBerry Messenger 1.0.4
BlackBerry Messenger now available for Android and iOS

BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) is a popular instant messaging tool which originated on BlackBerry devices, but is now also available on Android and iOS.

BBM keeps life simple, not least because it's "always on", always connected. You don't have to open an app to chat, it's always available to send or receive messages.

There's plenty of depth to the service, too. You can create your own profile, perhaps set or update your status. You might send text (with a host of emoticons), photos, files, documents and more. And you can have one-to-one chats, or broadcast messages to a whole group.

Once a message has been despatched, you'll see right away when it's been delivered or read, even when a contact is responding. It's all very interactive.

While this might sound like it presents privacy issues, that's really not the case. BBM uses its own PIN system to identify users, rather than email addresses. And both you, and each of your contacts needs to opt in to the system, so you always keep full control over who can message you.

Please note, to avoid getting overwhelmed by demand, BBM asks for an email address on its first launch, and you'll have to wait for an email before you can use the app. They're allowing millions on at a time so this shouldn't take long, but the official Twitter site has more.

What's new in 1.0.4?

- Support for iPod and iPad
- Invite BBM contacts to BBM Groups by Email
- 'Tell your friends’ feature helps you connect with friends on BBM
- Quickly share your BBM PIN and PIN barcode to your social networks
- Fixes an issue where some users would be missing BBM Contact names
- Resolves some issues experienced in right to left language support
- Bug fixes and performance improvements

Verdict:

An attractive, easy-to-use messaging app with plenty of useful features

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.
