PowerPoint for iPad 1.1
Microsoft PowerPoint finally hits the iPad

PowerPoint for iPad is one of three apps that make up Microsoft's Office suite for iOS users - Word and Excel are, unsurprisingly, the other two.

The apps have a familiar interface, with the same Ribbon interface and layout. But at the same time, they're not just a port of the regular desktop version. Menus have been optimised for touch; objects can be dragged, rotated or resized with a swipe, and the interface scales properly in both portrait and landscape mode.

There's solid integration with other iPad features. You can use voice dictation to create a document, perhaps, or AirPlay to project your finished presentation.

You get plenty of functionality, too. This isn't the hobbled Office Mobile for iPhone: there are templates, tables,  footnotes, filters, charts, transitions and just about everything else you'll need. Everything is very configurable, formatting is preserved so documents look just as you'd expect, and of course you can save and share your documents in OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint.

If you're just looking for a viewer, then the good news is that the Office apps are free. Just download them and you'll be able to read and present documents, spreadsheets and presentations.

To create or edit documents, though, you'll need an Office 365 subscription. If you have one already, no problem; you're covered for all the apps installed on a single tablet in addition to your PC if you have an Office 365 Personal subscription ($6.99 a month) or on up to five different tablets alongside your five PCs or Macs if you have the Office 365 Home sub ($9.99).

What's new in Microsoft PowerPoint for iPad 1.1:

+ Presenter View: View and edit speaker notes, see your next slide, or jump to other slides while presenting.
+ Play Media: Play videos, sound effects, and background music while presenting.
+ Insert Video: Insert videos from your Camera Roll.
+ Picture Tools: Crop to focus on just the right part of the photo, or reset to undo your changes.
+ Presenter Tools: Now you can erase highlights and drawings on your presentation.
+ Send PDFs: Send PowerPoint files as PDFs.
+ Hyperlinks: Add links to your presentation or edit existing ones.
+ Fonts: Third-party fonts are now available in the Fonts menu.

Verdict:

PowerPoint for iPad looks great, is powerful and easy to use. If you have an Office 365 subscription it's a no-brainer, but if not, there are better value alternatives out there.

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.
