Nuance PDF Reader 8.1
A faster, more feature-packed PDF viewer

PDF is the most popular format for exchanging documents online, and so every PC needs the ability to view PDF files. This doesn't mean you have to install Adobe Reader, though: there are many alternatives that are faster, lighter on resources, and have more features. And Nuance PDF Reader is a perfect example.

The program's advantages start immediately. Our PDF Reader 11 folder requires 117MB of hard drive space, with plenty of support files to add; Nuance PDF Reader is a relatively slimline 62MB. Its reduced size seemed to improve performance, with documents loading noticeably more quickly on our test PC.

There are plenty of navigation panels to help you browse your document's pages, attachments, comments, links and signatures. 3D objects even get their own Model Tree panel where you can set zoom, camera angle, render tree and more.

This isn't just about viewing plain text and images, either. Nuance PDF Reader can open XPS files, play embedded Flash and Silverlight content, view and navigate layered PDF files, and more.

You can also annotate PDF files by highlighting, crossing out or underlining selected text. The program will let you both fill out and save PDF forms. Corporate types will appreciate the Microsoft SharePoint integration, that makes it easy to access and open files stored in your Repository. And there's even the option to convert PDF files to Word, Excel, Or RTF format, although this isn't directly built in to the program. Instead you must upload your file to Nuance, who will email you the results.

Verdict:

Nuance PDF Reader is fast, lightweight, and full of useful extras. The excellent form handling is especially useful - if you regularly work with PDF forms then give this a try

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.
