XBMC Remote 1.0.9 on Android
Control XBMC from the comfort of your armchair using your iOS device.

XBMC is the go-to media tool these days, but whether you’ve built a dedicated media center using the XBMCbuntu variant or run it ad-hoc from your PC or Mac, having to control it using your mouse and keyboard can be a finicky thing.

This is where XBMC Remote comes into play. This official app lets you press your Android mobile into a fully functioning remote control, letting you browse your libraries for content to play or flick through the XBMC options using the fully featured remote control.

Tap the settings button, and you can alter the volume, bring up an on-screen keyboard, use a button pad for controlling XBMC via gestures. Install the latest version of XBMC – Gotham – and you can even access XBMC’s own settings from your phone or tablet.

The app recognises multiple instances of XBMC, so switch between them by simply tapping the version you wish to control. From here you can also access power settings as well as options for updating and cleaning both audio and video libraries.

The app is reasonably intuitive to use – the user interface is reasonably attractive when browsing your media libraries, but the actual remote control itself is a little clunky, particularly when compared to the more attractive user interface found in the iOS version.

But despite this personal niggle, if you’re using XBMC to watch media, you’ll want this free app to ensure you never have to leave the couch again.

Verdict:

If you’re an XBMC user then this app is utterly indispensable.

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.
