Microsoft recently pushed out its latest version of Office. The app suite had been available in public beta for sometime, but nobody seemed to realize exactly what the company had in mind for the final release. Well, on January 29th the world found out and it was bit different from what most users were expecting.
First, the suite was released as not just Office 2013, but also as Office 365 Home Premium. While Office 2013 comes as traditional desktop software and in several different versions like Home and Student, Home and Office and Professional, it is an expensive suite and can only be used on one computer.
Saving the world one tree at a time. In an age where, more than ever, mankind is on alert and educated about environmental issues, this could be the ideal motto of any environmental NGO, or the slogan of a campaign aiming to stop the deforestation in Amazon’s rainforest. But it isn’t.
In fact, that is the motto of iPrint, a free app for Windows developed by Inzone Software. It is designed to give you an improved and more intuitive control over the printing process, which many printers, specially the older ones, do not allow. If you want to reduce your paper and ink consumption, both saving the planet and a few extra bucks, iPrint is just the app to have.
Web-based email services such as Yahoo! and Gmail have become more and more advanced to the point that they are almost indistinguishable from dedicated desktop email clients in terms of features.
But there is still a huge market for clients such as Outlook and, unlike online email services, you are placed firmly in charge of your data and bear responsibility for making sure that it remain safe and accessible. The problem with Outlook is that all of you emails and other data are stored in one, potentially gigantic, PST file. Should this become corrupt, you run the risk of losing everything, but Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair is, as the name suggests, a tool designed to help you out should the worst happen.
OneNote for Windows 8 has just been released, and it’s quite different from previous versions. The only application in the Office suite to make the jump to a Windows 8 app, OneNote is an entirely different beast from the rest of the Office family.
Its features have made it one of the best productivity applications out there for some time. Does OneNote for Windows 8 maintain the best features of its desktop-based predecessors?
NaNoWriMo is upon us, and if you’re a writer, this is one tool you must have in your arsenal. I have been using WordWeb for as long as I can remember and it’s among the first few programs I install on any new PC.
WordWeb is a dictionary and thesaurus tool for Windows, iOS and Android. And if you thought that the new Windows 8’s global dictionary reduces a need for this, think again. WordWeb is infinitely more user-friendly, features several more options and is just as unobtrusive while doing all that.
