TinkerTool
Tweak your Mac's settings with TinkerTool

Tweaking tools are easy to find for Windows, but there tend to be fewer available for OS X. TinkerTool is a system customisation tool which enables you to tinker with hidden settings to help configure your Mac more to your liking.

While a large number of customisations can be put in place using the Preferences built into OS X, but TinkerTool enables you to delve a little deeper. You are placed in complete control of settings such as font smoothing, and anti-aliasing, as well as controlling the positioning of desktop wallpaper.

You can customise the appearance and functionality of Finder and disable the dashboard if required. Any changes made in the program only affect the current user, so in a multi-user environment, everyone can apply their own preferred settings. It also means that administrator privileges are not required and safeguards are in place that make it possible to roll back settings to their defaults, or the settings that were in use before TinkerTool was installed.

This is a great tweaking tool which is useful in the way it provides easy access to a wide range of built in settings, but also thanks to the fact that it makes it possible to change settings that you would otherwise not be able to.

What's new in 5.0?

- Added new feature to import and export settings to file, making it possible to transfer them between different users or computers.
- Added settings to control the default fonts of Safari 7 which become active when no fonts are set within a particular web document.
- Font settings different from defaults are now emphasized by a color marker.
- Added setting to control whether screenshots should have date and time in their file names.
- TinkerTool can now track live if settings are modified by other applications.
- Many small enhancements and layout optimizations in the user interface.

Verdict:

A great way to customise the appearance, performance and feel of your Mac.

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.
