  1. Family Tree Heritage 7 review

    Family Tree Heritage 7 review

    7  

    Genealogy software has grown in popularity of late, largely due to easier access to family data online. Now in its seventh generation, this is one of the older suites on the market, but the developers haven’t been tempted to update it too much, still offering a simple interface from which you can plot your family tree.

    Roxio Toast 9 Titanium review

    10  

    Another day, another new version of Toast. Ultimately, our verdict tends to be consistent: it's the best disc-burning app, it's pricey but bundles well-designed and useful software, and it's not a particularly compelling upgrade if you already own the previous version. But there are some things worth noting in this new release, so let's delve in.

    Apple Safari 3.1 review

    7  

    We’ve always found Safari frustrating, in that it’s full of potential, but always manages to fall short of being great. And so it goes with Safari 3.1, although this release at least continues the browser’s agonisingly slow crawl towards its superior contemporaries.

    10  

    Freeway Pro is a web design program that doesn’t edit HTML code. Much like a desktop publishing program, your website is displayed and edited as a single document. Once you’re done, Freeway Pro converts your document into HTML and uploads everything to the appropriate server.

    Zarra Studios iWeb Buddy review

    The key to the success of iWeb is its simplicity. It makes web building easy, thanks to drag-and-expand templates and drag-and-drop integration with iPhoto, iMovie and other apps. So what, then, is iWeb Buddy?

    We’ve recently seen a flurry of low-budget Mac-based bitmap editors, aiming to topple Photoshop from its lofty perch. Now, Illustrator’s in the firing line, with VectorDesigner seemingly positioned as a low-cost alternative.

    Apple Aperture 2 review

    Aperture 1.5 was great but very slow. Its RAW conversions, while decent weren't as good a Adobe's. It was expensive, too. Aperture 2 has changed all that. The database structure has been redesigned, and now Aperture is extremely fast, even on a MacBook.

    SilkyPix Developer Studio 3 review

    7  

    SilkyPix Developer Studio is shipped free with the Panasonic L10 digital SLR but is also available as a standalone program. At $149, it's quite expensive so what makes it so special? Certainly there's no shortage of features. It seems able to recover extra highlight detail (via exposure adjustments) and it can correct chromatic aberration and fix distortion.

    Well, the gloves are now off in round two of the fight to dominate the professional digital photography market.  Apple has launched Aperture 2 and has taken the opportunity to drop the price to a more reasonable £129 in order to compete with Adobe's Lightroom.
