ClipGrab downloads and converts Internet videos with ease and offers more features than most other YouTube downloaders. It doesn't download very quickly, though, and the video and audio quality won't be the ideal. However, if you need a program that downloads videos automatically, you might want this one.
When you try to install this program, it will try to change your default browser and add some extra programs. If you dodge those, the program, itself, downloads very quickly. Its layout is very minimalistic, but it puts all the tools you need right in your face. You can search … Read more
Many people believe their dreams reveal deeper insights. Dream journals or dream diaries let dreamers record their dreams while they're still fresh in their minds, which means as soon as they wake up. Lightened Dream is a freeware dream journal, but it also promises to help you understand, interpret, and even control your dreams. While the software is well-executed, the psychological concepts are less convincing. But we think skepticism is a sensible way to approach any such program, let alone one with as many unique twists as Lightened Dream.

Lost or stolen mobile devices are a growing data security threat, yet there's no need to panic over sensitive data falling into the wrong hands if it's protected. That's where USB Flash Security from Kashu System Design comes in. It's a free USB security utility for mobile devices.

When most companies offer free versions of premium apps, it's not unusual to see a substantial portion of the feature set fly out the door. Thankfully that's not the case with music-finding app SoundHound. The company, which has changed names and pricing structures throughout the course of its modest lifetime, has wisely left the bulk of its feature set intact while limiting the number of times per month you can access its core feature, identifying (or "tagging") and app.
Unlike competitors that require you to hold the app close to the source of recorded music before … Read more
Music-finding app SoundHound has changed names and pricing structures throughout the course of its modest lifetime, but its philosophy and core functionality remain unchanged. Unlike competitors that require you to hold the app close to the source of recorded music before it can ID your song title, lyrics, and artist information, SoundHound Infinity (the premium version) works even when you sing, hum, speak, or type a request into the stylish interface. Though the app is now faster than before--returning results in as few as 4 seconds--ambient noise may still interfere with accurate results, and typing usually prevailed in the rare … Read more
Poker Mania offers a single game of draw poker, but leaves a lot to be desired. While it was easy to pick up, we quickly grew bored with the program's lack of variety.
Even though we are not regular poker players, we felt instantly at home with this simple interface. The program's onscreen instructions were great and the Help file's list of winning hands clarified a lot. Poker has countless variations and we were expecting to find at least a few to choose from. Instead, we were quickly disappointed to find that the program only consisted of … Read more
