Google Latitude
Track your friends and share your location using Google Latitude

Web sites and mobile apps such as FourSquare and Facebook's Places feature helped to bring about the idea of value in sharing your current location with others. This is something that Google Latitude makes even easier by enabling you to broadcast your location from your phone.

The app has a variety of uses, but it provides a particularly interesting way of meeting up with friends. Wherever you may be, you can call up a map that displays the current location of people you know that are running the app - this can also be useful if you want people to know where you are, but may not be able to hold onto your phone.

To avoid potential privacy concerns, it is possible to place a limit on the accuracy of location details -you may want to limit your location to nothing more specific than the city you are currently in, for example, or there may be times when you do not want to broadcast your location at all.

Google Latitude can also be used to create a personal travel journal. When used in conjunction with Google Location History, you can easily keep track of the places you have visited in the course of a day so you can return places you enjoyed. Available free of charge, it is likely that you can find numerous uses for Google's location tracking tool.

Verdict:

Google Latitude is a great deal, but the drain on battery life is something to take into consideration.

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.
