Screenhero 0.14.3000 beta
Easy-to-use Windows/ Mac screen sharing

Screenhero is a cross-platform screen sharing and collaboration tool, aimed at developers, but useful for anyone who needs a better to share someone else's computer.

After installation, you must set up a Screenhero account (just a matter of entering your name, email address, and a password). You're then able to connect to any other user by entering their email address. If they've signed up and are online you'll both be asked to confirm the shared access; if they haven't signed up yet, Screenhero sends an email with a link to download the software.

As soon as you've connected to your friend's system, a window appears showing their desktop. Unusually, this has two mouse cursors, one for each user, so there's no fighting for "control": you can both move around and click on whatever you like. (A user name under the cursor helps you keep track of who's who.)

Keyboard handling is good, too, with an option to use system keyboard shortcuts - like Mac's Cmd-Tab - on the remote computer.

Built-in text and voice chat tools make it easy to discuss whatever it is you're trying to do.

Connections are encrypted via an SSL-based peer-to-peer TLS scheme, ensuring your data stays private.

What you don't get is the ability to transfer files from one system to the other. This is screen sharing only.

There's also not quite enough control over how your system is shared. If you just want to show your contact something, for instance, you might want to remove their mouse cursor, so they can "look, but not touch". Unfortunately there's no way to do this. Screensharing may be paused with a click, but you can't stop the other person browsing your system.

Verdict:

Screenhero is a fast and easy-to-use screen sharing tool. It needs a little more control over what the remote user can do on your system, and we're not sure how much the finished version is going to cost, but as a free beta it's definitely worth trying.

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.
