120 Sports
Watch sports for free (US only)

120 Sports is an iOS/ Android app which offers free sports highlights programming in two minute clips, along with expert analysis, interactivity and more.

Essentially it's a configurable sports news show. Launch the app and you're presented with thumbnails and headlines representing the latest stories, in chronological order. Tap an image to watch a two minute report on the topic, with video footage and a studio discussion.

Alternatively, just search for whatever sport, event or athlete you're following, and you can receive notifications whenever a related story appears.

There's much more content than you'd expect, because 120 Sports is a serious network, with some very big players: Time Inc./Sports Illustrated, Chicago-based digital sports media company Silver Chalice, MLB.com, the NHL, the PGA Tour, NBA, NASCAR and more.

It's not all good news. 120 Sports is much more about video coverage than text, so you can't catch up on the news by just glancing at a few lead paragraphs. There are some big banner ads, and crucially, it seems to be only available in the US (although if you're elsewhere in the world, 120sports.com may be visible from a desktop).

The app is free, however, with a lot of content, and if you're a sports fan then it's definitely worth a try.

Verdict:

120 Sports would benefit from text stories, and maybe a smarter interface which made better use of tablets. But then this is only version 1.0, and already the app delivers plenty of content in an appealing, easy-to-use interface.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
