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.

Digital distribution of games has proven itself. There’s Impulse and GamersGate.

Of course Steam, by Valve, is the 800-lb gorilla in this space, but those with a taste outside the mainstream should take a look at Desura.

I love calendars. And when I say I love calendars, I mean I LOVE them. If there is a calendar app for a platform I use, I have used that app. One of my favorite calendar programs happens to be a desktop app for Windows called VueMinder. I used the free trial last fall and quickly fell in love with VueMinder and bought a Pro license.

VueMinder boasts itself as “the best calendar program for Windows” and I tend to agree. Let’s find out what sets VueMinder apart from other calendar apps.

Any tool that aims to help to you to keep track of things you need to get done has to walk a fine line between offering the options needed to be flexible and versatile, but be simple enough to remain easy to use and uncluttered in appearance.

Todo is an aptly named app for Windows 8 that enables you to work in full screen mode for data entry or browsing tasks, but also includes a neat snapped  mode that enables you to keep your todo list on display at all times.

I’ve been using Bvckup beta for well over a year now and it’s about time it received some recognition for reliably sorting out my backups without ever getting in the way. I mean, what more could you want from a backup utility? That it is fast maybe? Check. Perhaps that it is minimal and easy to set up? Check. Maybe that it does not use a proprietary file format for backups? Yep, got that too.

Bvckup differs from other backup applications, It makes sure that whichever folder you choose to back up is always exactly duplicated to the folder that you are backing up to. Ok, no big deal you say. Well what about if we throw in a Delta copying algorithm that makes backups super fast? And how about real-time folder monitoring, scheduled backups and manual backups all in one app?

Read on to find out more about this cool little application. (more…)

I loved creating collages when I was a kid. I tried making one now and apparently I’m not very good at them now and physically ruined the original photos whilst making a collage. Shucks! In this digital age, making a real collage is time consuming and how would you brag about them to your friends? This is where Phototastic comes in handy.

Unlike other photography related apps, Phototastic focuses mainly on making impressive collages rather than addinging effects on the images. Well, you can do that too as there are innumerable options in this app. Let’s take a look!

Books have changed a great deal in recent years. While physical books are just about as popular as ever, there is an ever-growing electronic book market; this encompasses not only what is traditionally thought of as an ebook (think Nook, Kindle et al), but also audio books.

In the audio book arena, there are not many tools vying for attention – it’s Audible all the way. While there has been an aps available for mobile devices for some time, the Windows 8 Audible app took a little while to see the light of day. Now it’s here, but is it any good?
