Adobe Digital Editions 3.0
Easily view and manage your PDF and ePub eBooks

Adobe Digital Editions is a simple tool to help you manage and view your eBooks.

At a minimum you might want to use the program as a basic eBook reader. And this is easy enough. Just drag and drop your chosen file onto the program - PDF, PDF/A and EPUB formats are supported, as are eBooks with embedded SWF files - and it'll appear.

Reading is then fairly straightforward. There are a few basic viewing options, so you can display one or two pages on the screen at a time, increase or decrease text size at a click, and scroll through the book using your mouse or the keyboard. You get a simple text search tool, and the ability to create bookmarks on particular pages, and of course there's a print option, too. So we're not talking feature-rich here, but if you just want to read then there's enough to get by.

Adobe Digital Editions can also manage your eBooks, by maintaining them in its own library. Every time you drag and drop an item onto the program, it's added to the "All Items" bookshelf, which makes it easy to find and reload later. And you can also create additional bookshelves, then drag and drop eBooks to categorise them as you like: "Holiday Reading", "Sci-fi", "Favourites", whatever suits your needs.

And if you own copy-protected eBooks, then Adobe Digital Editions can help you to transfer them onto other computers or devices, so you can read your collection wherever you are.

What's new in 3.0?

- More Secure DRM Scheme. Digital Rights Management scheme to protect ePub and PDF files from unauthorized viewing is now hardened and made more secure.
Enhanced Support for Vertical Layout. Enhanced support for vertical layout and orientation.
Support for CSS 2.1 Text Properties
PDF search has become better enabling you to search for text in a specific 

Verdict:

It doesn't have the longest of feature lists, but if you just want to read then Adobe Digital Editions will probably be enough. It's also easy to use, and had no problem opening whatever PDF and ePub files we threw at it.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
