  1. Paragon Partition Manager 9.0 Personal review

    Paragon Partition Manager 9.0 Personal review

    8  

    Windows Vista users may already know that it's possible to shrink and extend partitions without losing any data using the Disk Management Console. As such, it's possible to partition your hard drive without spending a penny. So why would you want to shell out for a commercial product like this?

    Roxio Copy and Convert 3 review

    The digital media landscape hasn't exactly plateaued in the past few years, as was once predicted. If anything, the ever-expanding proliferation of portable devices and media formats has made it rockier than ever before

    Ambrosia Software Snapz Pro X 2.1.2 review

    7  

    Yeah, yeah, we know: Mac OS X already provides screen-grab keystrokes and a standalone capture app (the simplistic Grab). But Snapz Pro X bills itself as the crème de la crème of such tools, and is aimed at professionals who've outgrown Apple's built-in freebies.

    Jinx.de ScreenRecycler 1.12 review

    Been using Macs for a while? Then you’re likely to have a spare machine or two kicking around. Due to the durability of most Macs, chances are they’ll be in working order, too; just not powerful enough to meet the demands of modern apps. With ScreenRecycler, old Macs with a screen can once again prove useful.

    F-Secure Internet Security 2008 review

    6  

    F-Secure does well to integrate its various elements into a single application, although a glance at the Task Manager revealed 14 separate processes using around 40MB of memory when idle, and installation requires a number of restarts.

    Most folks these days regularly use more than one computer. However, no matter how hard we plan, there are always occasions when we're sat in front of the wrong one.

    Most people have a large, ever-growing collection of browser bookmarks, which is rarely tidied. If you use multiple browsers, bookmarks may be spread among them, causing you to waste time when finding fave sites. Bookdog is specially designed to deal with these problems.

    There are a couple of ways you can use your mobile phone to connect to the internet. It can be a tricky process, though, particularly when you're travelling overseas and need to hop between carriers and root out configuration codes for Mac OS X's Bluetooth software.

    St Clair Software Default Folder X 4.0 review

    Usually, MacFormat reviews explore functionality, new features and pros and cons before arriving at a conclusion, but this time we'll make an exception: buy Default Folder X 4.0 now, because it's brilliant. Still with us? Okay, maybe a little more information is required for you die-hards...

    Equinux Media Central 2.1 review

    8  

    Equinux's Mac media browser, Media Central, has been overhauled since version 1.2. It's virtually a whole new app with many new features - and one that's changed from being freeware to paid-for shareware in the process

    Roxio Easy Media Creator Suite 10 review

    Like Nero, Easy Media Creator can create pretty much any disc type you care to think of, as well as offering video conversion and a comprehensive DVD authoring package that really does make creating your own DVDs a very simple task indeed.

    Saft 10.0.3 review

    6  

    Safari is really annoying. Despite version 3's new features it still lags behind Firefox and Opera, and yet its speedy nature and clean UI make it tempting to use nonetheless. Saft aims to plug the holes that Apple hasn't filled itself, adding functionality to Safari, much of which is user-definable.

    Nisus Writer Pro review

    Back in the day, Nisus was a hit for serious word processing. When OS Xcame along, it floundered for a time, and was eventually rebuilt fromthe ground up to emerge as the excellent Nisus Writer Express.

    Lavasoft Registry Tuner review

    8  

    At the heart of your PC's Operating System lies the Registry - something that'll become increasingly bloated as you install or uninstall programs. With every such action, it's likely strings will remain in your Registry that don't relate to anything anymore.

    Many of us are put off from shooting in native RAW mode because it usually means having to buy expensive software to read and convert the RAW files at the computer stage.

    True to form, OnmiFocus is another organiser, and purely a list maker rather than a visualiser like OnmiGraffle or MindMap Pro

    At only $29, it’s less than half the price of SnapzProX, though it lacks its still-image capture abilities.

    Apple Final Cut Studio review

    Apple Final Cut Studio review

    Despite some competition from Avid, the gap left by Adobe’s hiatus from video editing on the Mac platform has allowed Final Cut to flourish. Few would argue it is currently the dominant program for Mac-based video editing.

    CyberLink PowerDirector 6 review

    Budget video editing has never had it so good. With the capabilities of an average PC now easily able to cope with the demands of cutting, overlaying and playing back video edits in real time, the competition among providers vying to offer the best features for the best price – along with ease of use – has really heated up.

    Trend Micro Internet Security Pro review

    7  

    As more features are packed into Internet security bundles, the price steadily increases. Trend Micro has ditched its PC-Cillin name and gone straight for some of the market that Kaspersky, F-Secure, Panda and BitDefender seem to be gobbling up from McAfee and Norton.

    When the disc authoring companies continue to focus on new ways to burn discs, you realise that the good old optical drive isn’t dead after all. Like Roxio, Nero is no longer just about the humble CD or DVD – it’s now all about computer management and multimedia control.

    Total Security 2008 is the latest version of BitDefender's internet security solution and, in terms of look and style, it looks like it went back to the drawing board. The interface and new applications owe a great deal to Symantec's Norton 360

    If you're the paranoid type, a program like Window Washer will appeal. It's designed to eliminate all traces of your activity, enabling you to wipe your Internet trail, reset program settings or clean free space on your hard drive.
