Launcher 7
Launcher 7 brings the look of Windows Phone 7 to Android

In the world of computing, it is quite common for applications to borrow ideas from other software, and this is certainly true when it comes to operating systems. Just as there are three main operating systems to choose from for desktop computers - Windows, OS X and Linux - so for mobile devices, with users having the choice of iOS, Windows Phone and Android.

Each mobile operating system has its strengths and weaknesses, and whichever one you decided to go for inevitably means having to make some compromises. If you have opted for an Android device but are craving the look of Windows Phone 7, Launcher 7 may just be the tool you have been looking for, as it will enable you to bring the look of Microsoft's mobile operating system to your Android.

Launcher 7 is highly customizable and its interface is broken down into a series of tiles that can be used as shortcuts to app, phone features or Android widgets. The color of tiles, as well as the background image can be adjusted, and achieving the perfect screen layout takes nothing more than drag and drop.

Extra shortcuts can be accessed in the drawer that appears to the right of the main screen, and this can also be used to delete those apps you no longer need. On most devices, the performance of Launcher 7 is impressive, but animation effects can be changed if things perform slowly.

Verdict:

Launcher 7 is a faithful reproduction of the Windows Phone 7 interface and it gives Android a completely new look and feel.

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.
