GoodSync

GoodSyncProtect your data with this important multiplatform app

Everyone – or at least nearly everyone – knows what cloud sync apps are today. Its quite possible that you’ve heard of at least one or two. Getting your data into the cloud isn’t easy without an app like GoodSync. It’s a data backup and cloud synchronization app for Windows.

GoodSync is an easy to use file synchronization application. It automatically analyzes, synchronizes, and backs up your data locally – between desktops, laptops, servers, external drives, and Windows Mobile devices – as well as remotely with FTP, SFTP, WebDAV and Amazon S3 servers. The best thing about GoodSync is GoodSync Connect, which helps you to connect computers easily, even through the internet.

GS-03

Cloud synchronization options abound on the internet today. GoodSync is just one of them. However, you really need to watch what you get when you sign up. Other services may provide better options. While GoodSync Connect offers a real advantage for the service, if you have non-Windows computers you want to sync with, you have other issues to deal with. Licensing costs on non-Windows computers is much higher. You also don’t get a discount for purchasing multiple PC licenses, so you may pay more using GoodSync than with other services where you pay for storage. You’ll need to price it out and shop around a bit to insure you get the best deal.

Play, organize and rip your audio collection with foobar2000

Play, organize and rip your audio collection with this must have Windows application.

Foobar-2000-iconIf you’re like me, music is a big part of your life. Finding the right tool to play it where you want, when you want without having a bunch of junk installed on your computer is important. This is one of the biggest reasons why I like foobar2000. It’s a music player for Windows, and it supports a portable mode.

Foobar2000 is an advanced freeware audio player for the Windows platform. Some of the basic features include full unicode support, ReplayGain support and native support for several popular audio formats including MP3, MP4, AAC, CD Audio, WMA, Vorbis, FLAC, WavPack, WAV, and AIFF.

FB2K-05

The app is easily customizable with a custom interface. It contains support for advanced music file tagging and supports gapless playback. The app will also rip audio CD’s and convert the files to your format of choice.

foobar2000 is a really nice music player. Its portable, meaning you can specify why it and all of its configuration file go. When installed in this mode, it can be moved to a USB stick and taken and used on another computer. This is especially helpful if you can’t or don’t want to install something on a shared PC.

The app is nice, but it doesn’t sync with any mobile device like an Android phone or Apple iDevice. Without this type of feature, the app is very outmoded and so very, very 1997. While its portable mode is nice, and some of its visualizations are cool, it seems very much a relic of the past. Nearly every PC sold today comes with some kind of music player. Both Windows Media Player and iTunes are free; and while foobar2000 is as well, they also sync’s with portable music players where foobar2000 does not.

LTC-07

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.
