Amazon Music for Windows 3.0
Amazon Music provides a simple, attractive user interface.

Amazon’s rebranded Music service doesn’t just give you access to MP3’s you’ve bought from the behemoth, it also gives you access to digital versions of any CDs you’ve bought. This free companion app for Mac and PC allows you to play music both from your Amazon cloud account and locally stored tracks from iTunes and Windows Media Player.

If you’re an Amazon Prime user, it’ll also give you access to millions of tracks for streaming to your computer for free too, which you can subsequently download to listen offline. At time of writing, Amazon Prime Music is only available in the US.

As media players go it’s straightforward to install and use. Just log in with your Amazon account and all your previous purchases will immediately show up, followed reasonably swiftly by those digital copies of CDs. Switch to the Computer tab and it’ll give you access to your locally stored collection too.

The interface is split into three – a left-hand pane for browsing your collection, middle pane offering you information about the currently selected artist or album (including that all-important link to Amazon’s store) along with controls that allow you to play or manage selected parts of your collection (right-click to access these). There’s also an optional right-hand sidebar where you can opt to download music to your computer for listening to offline or for building cloud playlists.

One slight disappointment is that you can’t directly import music to your cloud account (250 tracks for free, 250,000 if you sign up for $24.99 a year) from app – instead, the More menu shortcut simply takes you to your web browser.

Playback is simple, with all the usual controls – play, previous, next, shuffle and repeat controls plus volume slider – easily accessible at the bottom of the Cloud Player window. It adds up to a neat solution for those wishing to use Amazon rather than Apple (iTunes) or Microsoft (Xbox Music) for their cloud-based music.

Version 3.0 sees a name change, a slight redesign and support – in the US – for Amazon Prime streaming.

Verdict:

Slight quibbles about the lack of built-in tools for importing music into the cloud aside, Amazon Music is a great tool for users of Amazon’s cloud music service.

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.
