When it comes to group video calls, one-time VoIP pioneer Skype plainly lags behind others. It's been fewer than two weeks since Skype added beta support on Windows PCs for a video conference call feature that competitors like ooVoo and VoxOx have long integrated to differentiate themselves.
However, Skype has the advantage of being a known quantity among casual technologists who would be otherwise less inclined to sign up for new services once they've already settled on one. Such is the case with one of the toughest test groups I know to please: my family. Five of us … Read more
CanoScan Toolbox is a one-stop shop for all of your printing needs. Though it mostly works without a hitch, the lack of a workable Help feature could leave many users in the dark about some of its functions.
The user interface is about as basic and straightforward as it gets, with prominent buttons for functions like Copy, Print, Mail, and more positioned side-by-side in a small window. Each button is labeled, so there's no question about its purpose. Clicking a button opens a dialog box that walks you through each step. For example, drop-down boxes in the Copy dialog … Read more
Good video editing software can take something that looks like it was shot with a cell phone and turn it into a slick, professional-looking production. Movavi Video Editor is good video editing software. It can edit, cut, splice, and alter your videos, clean them up, sync sound and music to images, create customized titles with text and animation, split audio and video tracks, and much more. It also captures screen video and audio and saves video and still images in a range of widely compatible formats.
Movavi's main interface is an up-to-date dark gray design divided into three parts: … Read more
AudibleManager is a simple way for users of Audible, an online audio bookstore, to organize their purchased books, podcasts, and other media. The program works just fine, although people who already use programs like iTunes to manage their Audible downloads will find that the AudibleManager doesn't offer anything particularly useful.
The program's interface is plain and intuitive, and it's quite easy to use. Users simply import media that they've downloaded from Audible and then use the program to transfer the files to a variety of portable devices. The program also functions as an audio player and … Read more
To a certain extent, all media players are the same; they play audio or video, and the only thing that really differentiates them from one another is their features and interface. Unfortunately, uAmp has absolutely nothing going for it where either of these is concerned.
We will never understand why software designers create interfaces that are festooned with tiny buttons and text. Not only was it virtually impossible to decipher words and symbols on uAmp's interface, but also the buttons were so small that we had difficulty even clicking on them. The program offers several different skins, but we … Read more
There are a lot of video file converters out there, and most of them are quite similar, allowing users to convert videos between different file formats. Unfortunately, the only thing that sets Leap Free All to AVI MPEG4 WMV MOV FLASH Converter apart from the competition is the fact that it doesn't work very well.
We had high hopes when we first opened the program. The interface is clean and intuitive, with large graphical buttons. We were excited to see that the program also includes a YouTube downloader, and we decided to try that first. We were disappointed to … Read more

Another new aspect of the software is Facebook integration. With this feature, users can make status updates right from VZ Navigator with the option to include their location.
Other new features of the … Read more
SpiceFX for Movie Maker provides a simple set of photo effects. By creating a moving set of filters, it's an entirely different type of photo filter.
The program's helpful interface made it a cinch to operate. Thanks to its onscreen instructions and very visual layout, we never felt compelled to visit the online Help file for instructions. While the idea of applying various photographic masks and filters didn't initially sound like anything earthshaking, we were impressed by this program's collection. We could apply various shapes, fades, pans, zooms, and other effects with an impressive amount of … Read more
Agood MP3 AMR OGG AAC M4A AC3 WAV Converter is a simple program that allows users to convert audio files to a variety of different formats. Although there was nothing about the program that particularly impressed us, we found it to be easy to use and effective.
The program's interface is basic, with all of its features contained on a single screen. Users simply choose the file or files they want to convert, select the output format from among seven options, optionally select the desired quality of the output, and click Convert. The program quickly converts files and saves … Read more
