Hotspot Shield VPN
Reduce your data charges and protect your identity with Hotspot Shield VPN

When you are away from a wireless network, when you are out and about with your Android phone you have to make use of your mobile provider’s data packages. This can quickly become expensive because even if you have an inclusive allowance, it is all too easy to use the internet more than planned and end up with a hefty bill.

Hotspot Shield can help you to reduce these costs by compressing data so you do not need to download as much data when you are visiting web sites. This not only helps to save money, but it can also help to speed up internet usage, so it can be handy when at home as well. But the app also includes security features and a handy VPN feature.

The VPN side of things makes it possible to access sites that have been blocked in certain countries, but the security options that will be familiar to anyone who has used the desktop version of the software are particularly noteworthy. Any data you send when using a wireless hotspot is encrypted to prevent data from being intercepted, and your IP address and identity are protected.

While the app is free and all of the features can be used free of charge for a week, if you want to continue working with the app you will need a subscription. You can buy a subscription as an in-app purchase, and this will set you back $0.99 for a month or $9.99 for an entire year.

Verdict:

The money-saving aspect of the app may be negated by the subscription costs for some people, but security features are impressive and worthwhile.

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.
