Recover program licence keys, passwords, more

RecALL is a free program which tries to recover application license keys, passwords and more.

We ran it on our test PC and it found the licence keys for Windows 8.1, Axialis IconWorkshop, TuneUp Utilities, VMware Workstation and assorted CyberLink applications (but not our Office 2013).

This information was presented in a confusing way. Many applications were listed multiple times, for example. Sometimes each entry had a different value, and you're left to figure out yourself which one (if any) might be correct correct.

RecALL seems designed to display password details, but it found very few on our test PC. It only gave the user name and password for one of our Outlook 2013 accounts, and located very little for websites.

Fortunately there is one useful option in a "Server Emulation" mode. Set this up, change your email or FTP client to access 127.0.0.1 instead of its usual server, then connect as usual. RecALL intercepts and displays the user name and password, very handy if you've forgotten them.

Changelog

Verdict:

RecALL isn't a particularly useful password or licence key finder. It did quickly detect our Windows 8.1 key, though, and the ability to intercept email and FTP traffic means it could find some logons that other programs miss.

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.
