Leawo Tunes Cleaner is super easy to use. While it did have problems with my Mac based iTunes Library files, this IS after all, a Windows app. When dealing with simply the songs in question however, the app was stellar. It was able to correctly identify the songs in question, and then see that they were, for example, missing art work. Leawo Tunes Cleaner identified the appropriate artwork and then pulled it down. However, when I tried to apply the changes to the song files, the app refused to do so until I purchased a license. So, you get a trial, but you don’t get to save any of the changes.

Tenorshare Android Data Recovery

android-data-recoveryBUN Recover lost data from your Android smartphone with this must have Windows utility.

More than half of all the smartphones in the world are Android smartphones. Until the iPhone 5 came out last year, I was using an Android phone. They are really that good.

The biggest problem with having an Android or any smartphone is the protection of your data. Lose it, and you could be out of luck. That’s one of the reasons why applications like Tenorshare Android Data Recovery is so very important. It’s a Windows desktop utility for your Android phone.

Sometimes it can really suck when life happens. We rely on our smartphones to do a lot – phone book, appointment book, notes, memos, and on top of that, music player, video consumption device as well as digital still and video camera. That’s a lot to ask of from any device, let alone one that gets dangled over every public toilet you see because you stick it in your shirt pocket. You can avoid a lot of this – except the Evel Kenevel dangle of death out of your shirt pocket – thanks to Tenorshare Android Data Recovery.

You can get back ALL of your data – Contacts, photos, text messages, appointments, etc. – including all of these plus call history from just about any Android phone or tablet, including those from Samsung, LG, Motorola and HTC. It also works with every version of Android…ever.

The best thing about the app, though, is that you can review data, and selectively recover just what you need. You can mark lost files and then make sure you get them back.

TADR-03

If you’re looking for a decent Android utility, this may be the first place you should stop. There are different setup requirements based on the device you have, so you should look here for specific instructions.

The biggest issue with Tenorshare Android Data Recovery is that your device MUST be rooted in order for you to be able to recover any data besides photos and videos. This is somewhat problematic for individuals who aren’t comfortable with rooting or able to do it due to work restrictions, even with one of those automatic rooting tools.

However, if you do have a rooted device, and you’re looking for a way to backup and recover data, this is an excellent choice.

iOS 7 and Consumer Reaction

iOS 7 removes a lot of the glossy eye candy from iOS 6 and earlier. I’ve talked to some people and have some interesting reaction.

ios7logoI’ve spoken to some users about the upgrade and let them take a look at the new mobile OS on my iPhone 5, and reactions to it have been pretty consistent – most everyone is either disappointed or reacts violently to the new look and feel. Flat…is not good.

The negative reaction so far has been pretty universal. The UI is NOT what consumers are used to, isn’t what they’ve come to expect from Apple, and quite honestly, they don’t like it. At all…

iOS 6 and earlier contains a LOT of eye candy and skewmorphic design elements. iOS 7 removes about 99% of the glitz and gloss that most everyone has equated with Apple’s spit, polish and device finish. They eye candy is part of what made Apple, well… Apple. The new industrial, flat and enterprise friendly version of iOS 7 will provide users with some much needed and long overdue feature enhancements – Control Center, the redesigned Notification Center and the new and enhanced security features that will help prevent stolen iDevices from being sold at pawn and other resale establishments – THAT stuff will be welcomed, if not considered a bit late to the party.

The rest, from a consumer point of view, is the look and feel of the OS, or the UI; and if developers are criticizing the look and feel, and some are, then the reaction from the masses is going to be much louder and much more critical.

Yes, it’s very much the whole Who Moved my Cheese thing, but it’s a bit more than that. Apple customers are used to a certain level of finish when it comes their Macs and iDevices. iOS 7 removed a lot of that finished layer and flattened the 3D look of the OS.

In short, I think iOS 7, while technically a much better version than iOS 6, isn’t going to do Apple any favors. I think it’s going to bring a great deal more negative press, as the flat design isn’t be received well by those that I’ve shared it with, the development community or with the technical community whom may have had early looks since its introduction. It’s unfortunate, too, as there are parts of the OS that I really like – the new security and Control Center features I mentioned – but the look and feel of the OS… yeah. Not so much…

A for effort here, and a nod to Jony Ive for giving iOS a revolutionary, instead of evolutionary, update, but the redesigned UI of iOS 7 – Yeah… Not a fan.

Malwarebytes Secure Backup – Protect and backup your data

mwbrKeeping your data safe is probably the one of the most important things a computer can do. Without your data, there really isn’t a reason to have or use a computer.  Its for this reason that having a backup strategy is important.  If I were you, I’d give serious consideration to Malwarebytes Secure Backup.  It’s a backup program for Windows.

With Malwarebytes Secure Backup, your files are backed up automatically to a secure server, according to a schedule that you set. Every version of a backed up file is archived. Every backed up file that is deleted from Malwarebytes Secure Backup is archived. Every file can always be retrieved, so you never have to worry about something being lost forever. With Malwarebytes Secure Backup, your data is always, ALWAYS safe.

The app even backs up infected files; but thankfully, the app automatically scans your files with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware engine and cleans them.  Don’t worry about your data. Malwarebytes Secure Backup keeps it safe and clean.

MSB-03
Many backup services backup your most current dataset and that’s about it. As items change, so does your backup set. That’s not the case with Malwarebytes Secure Backup.  It backs up and archives every version of every file on your PC.  You’re not limited by the number of devices it backup, either.  It will backup most any device on your PC or network with just one license.

If you’re looking for a backup service or thinking of making a change, then you really need to give Malwarebytes Secure Backup a serious look. Its worth the cost and the time it takes to backup the data.

Highlight

hl_icon2Get a handle on your source code and see what’s what with this handy Windows coding tool.

I’ve been in the software development biz for quite some time now, and the crafting of source code in many ways is just that – a craft or an art. Over the years, the best way I’ve learned to do that is to have a special app to help write and highlight certain syntax. This is probably the biggest reason why I’m interested in apps like Highlight. It’s a source code development app for Windows.

Highlight converts source code, like HTML, XHTML, RTF, LaTeX, TeX, SVG, BBCode and terminal escape sequences to code with colored syntax highlighting. Language definitions and color themes are customizable. The app was designed to offer a flexible but easy way to use syntax highlighting for several output formats. Instead of hardcoding syntax or coloring information, all relevant data is stored in configuration scripts. These scripts may be altered or enhanced with plug-ins.

HL-03

Highlight is a decent code editor, offering a way to highlight code to make it easy for coders to identify specific blocks of code by functionality – or color – with just a quick glance. This is especially helpful if you have to look for different loops or segments of code within a specific file when debugging or modifying or enhancing existing code.

This is great for programmers and testers; but won’t see much use outside of the development lifecycle type.

FeedDemon – Capture, sync and read all of your important web content…

fd… on or off line with this must have Windows app.

With the recent death of Google Reader, many people used to the clean, no-frills, off-line web content reader were wondering how they would continue to get all of their RSS-goodness.  Google Reader in many ways drove out some competition because it was free, handled RSS as well as it did, and was, let’s face it, from Google.

Now that its gone, people are looking for an alternative, and it may be closer than you think. FeedDemon is an RRS for Windows that does just about everything that you could want in an RSS app.

FeedDemon a popular RSS reader.  It has an easy-to-use interface, allowing you to stay on top of news, reviews, and other syndicated content.  You can assign your own keywords to items, making it easy to classify and locate articles you’ve previously read. FeedDemon also lets you know when your keywords appear in any feed you’re subscribed to.  You can get alerted when your keywords appear in any feed, regardless of whether you’re subscribed to it or not FeedDemon is also a cool podcast catcher and will automatically download audio files and copy them to your iPod or other media device.
FD-01
FeedDemon’s “My Stream” provides a way to quickly receive and view new articles in the feeds you consider to be the most important. Feeds added to your stream are displayed in a sidebar and checked for updates more often than any others.  If you’re looking for quick updates from Twitter, or Facebook for example, FeedDemon is a great tool to do it with.

FeedDemon is a cool RSS Reader. It can handle a lot of syndicated content, allowing you to read it on or offline at your leisure.  The biggest problem with the app, however, is that it was discontinued as of June 2013. There won’t be any updates to the software.  Provided that content can still be captured in RSS format, you shouldn’t have a problem. However, if you bump into trouble, don’t go looking for support.

Decrap

DecrapIconClean up a new computer and start fresh. That’s the benefit of this cool Windows utility.

One of the neatest things about opening a new computer for the first time is finding out exactly what the manufacturer put on it. One of the worst things is trying to remove it after you find out its really nothing more than trashware. This is why I like applications like Decrap. Not only is it aptly named, it’s a clean up tool for Windows machines that may just be what you need.

Decrap is an application that helps you safely and easily remove all of the bloatware that comes pre-installed by the manufacturer on a new Windows PC. It can often take hours or even days to get all the pre-installed junk removed from your new computer. However, with this little freeware app, you can completely uninstall all the unneeded software without any real user input!

Pre-installed bloatware is often deeply integrated into the Windows operating system. Trying to remove it by simply deleting the installation folders not only means you may not get rid of it all, but can also result in other important programs not functioning properly.

DC-06

Decrap looks like it’s a decent app; but the biggest problem it has is that its not always clear what you should keep and what you should remove. You’re going to need to understand what apps you installed and what apps you want to keep. If you can’t figure that out, you’re going to have a hard time using the app. I wouldn’t trust it in full automatic mode. I’m really not THAT trusting.

This app isn’t great, but its definitely NOT bad at all. As long as you understand what junk the OEM installed on your new PC and what you want to remove, then you should have no problems using Decrap to clean up your PC.
