Laplink Sync 7.0 on Android
Sync files to and from your PC or iOS device with Laplink Sync 7.0 for Android

These days, with a myriad of phones, tablets and computers in the home and workplace, one of the most challenging things you can face is keeping your key files in sync across all of them. In the past, you’d have had to connect them up directly via cable and specialist software whenever you wanted to transfer the latest set of files from one device to another, but these days that’s all changed.

One way to sync data across PC, Mac, Android and iOS is via cloud storage, with most apps – including SkyDrive, Dropbox and iCloud – making it possible to keep everything up to date wirelessly. The downside of this approach is that you typically need to be online to connect to your cloud-hosted data on your mobile or tablet – you can download individual files, but it’s a bit of a faff.

Laplink Sync aims to change all that. Unlike the rather hobbled iOS app, the Android version is as powerful and fully featured as the desktop version, letting you sync all kinds of files to and from your PC as well as video and photos with your iPhone or iPad.

In either event, you’ll need access to your local Wi-Fi network to use Laplink – it doesn’t work over internet connections and neither does it automatically keep your files in sync, you need to manually run the sync process each time.

The app works in a similar way to the desktop - password-protect it if necessary, then choose which folders to sync, and how to sync them (one-way syncs in either direction are possible as well as two-way sync). Then let the app do its work.

The interface is similar to the desktop PC version, so will feel instantly familiar. The only major drawback of the Android version is that you can't sync between Android devices - this is promised in a future update. Nevertheless, this is by far the best mobile version of Laplink Sync currently available.

Verdict:

A good solution for syncing data with your PC or iOS mobile at a reasonable price point, although the cost of the PC version might put you off.

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.
