Viber desktop voice calling and instant messaging for Windows and Mac finally gets released (also has a beta video call feature)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, June 3, 2013 In : software 


After years of being moaned at by its fans the makers of viber have finally decided to put out a public release of the desktop version of it. All I can say is so far so good based on the actual ear meltingly (in a good way) crispy clarity of calls made and received via the desktop app to a destination half way across the globe where the general domestic broadband isn't exaclty always the most reliable. Even better was the fact that the desktop app was so damn light as I was even able to roll ...

Easy to use and fast syncing of your notes across multiple platforms and devices

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 In : software 


So with Microsoft office now going to the cloud and being subscription based, I was looking for a fast and efficient alternative to Onenote. Although the new cloud based version of MS office is free to use with adds it still lacks a free version of the Onenote app. Step in Evernote, I did initially look into Evernote in one of its earlier forms, and I wasn't really that impressed at the time. Fast forward a few years and it looks like the format is now possibly just as slick as onenote (if no...

The batch image conversion tool I'll be using... FSveiwer

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, February 18, 2013 In : software 

 
Sure, Adobe Photoshop has a batch conversion tool buried within its menus, but even then some people might not find it to be the easiest means of doing batch image conversions. One of the key things it lacks is the ability to batch re-size images using a specified single dimension of either width or height and locking the batch of images to their original aspect ratio through proportionally automatically re-sizing the other dimension of the image. Meaning that all the images that you want to...

Adobe accidentally on purpose (but still more sort of accidentally) release CS2 for free...(...I guess its better that they actually get something out of it rather than the pirate sites)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, January 9, 2013 In : software 


A rather controversial mention this time round, and I wanted to wait till I could actually get through to the initially inaccessible and overloaded Adobe servers when news of this first broke. A day or so on and it looks like you'll be able to acquire a full version of Adobe's CS2 suite with activation serial number from the adobe site. Alternately you can also download individual Adobe apps from the CS2 suite if you don't actually need the entire thing and just use Photoshop to keep your sys...

Run Android apps from your Windows or OSX machine with little to no fuss via Bluestack app player...(... provided its compatible with your GPU)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, December 31, 2012 In : software 

 
 
Ever wanted to run android apps on your computer? Well now you can via Bluestack's nifty little Android shell app, no virtual machine required. Its currently available now for  both Windows and OSX in its beta form. I reckon those used to running Android on their touch devices might feel a little hampered running it off a none touch/tablet based machine, but despite this I still found it to be pretty damn useful all the same. Success in actually running it was a mixed bag, for a start I had...

Want kindle eBooks but don't have a kindle eBook reader? (…there's an app for that)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Saturday, October 27, 2012 In : software 


 Steve jobs was pretty much near disgusted by any proposal of  any potential tablet device carrying the Apple being smaller then their current regular iPad. So with the introduction of the iPad mini it seems a few things have obviously changed, including the company stance on smaller form factor tablets. It looks like eBook reading just got a little more convenient to say the least amongst other things. So to coincide I thought I'd give the free kindle app a mention which seems to have a free...

Skype 6 and anwards to integrate MSN messenger

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Saturday, October 27, 2012

 
Windows 8 might have Skype integration out of the blocks, but for the rest of us that won't be upgrading to Windows 8 quite just yet for many reasons despite the low price, there's Skype 6. What's new in Skype 6? Well its no secret that Microsoft had acquired Skype a while back with eBay seeming to have made a huge loss on it. But for something that was palmed off as being a blight the huge demand for Skype and its popularity was hardly a reflection of this given the numbers of people comple...

Pioneer rekordbox goes mobile

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, August 24, 2012 In : software 


With the Pioneer DJX Aero on the brink of making it onto the public space for the general public to hand over their hard earned cash for, they haven't wasted much time in prepping iOS and Android talkie sticks for its eventual release. The Pioneer rekordbox app is free to download now! It's also more then just an app that will allow for the sorting of your playlists and wireless bridging of Android and iOS devices to an Areo player/controller. It'll also allow you to sort track cue points, an...

Run down of useful fully functioning FREE Microsoft apps

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, July 20, 2012 In : software 

 
I don't really sit anywhere on the whole Microsoft vs. other alternatives debate (despite still lusting after a Macbook pro on the hardware front, and I can't believe they ditched the 17 inch variant). But from actual experience of using MS stuff for quite a long time I'd say they've provided a pretty decent user experience which was anything but second rate for the most part. So generally I don't really have much to gripe about, at least nothing that was too over shadowing in a negative way...

Alternative media player for a DAW?

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, July 13, 2012 In : software 

 
I liked the revamp of windows media player for Windows 7 and it generally remains a permanent fixture in my general use host OS instance. However for use in my DAW it was generally a lot more heavier then I'd like it to be. There's a definite significant noticeable boost in performance when removing it from the system as a windows component not to mention all the networking features that have been implemented to help make media sharing and streaming as easy as possible on a LAN which also ad...
