Soda 3D PDF Reader 2012 Edition
A quick and easy way to view and create PDF files

Soda 3D PDF Reader is yet another tool designed to help you view PDF files. But if you've already tried more than enough of these, keep reading - this one has a couple of twists which means it stands out from the competition.

The "3D" in the name refers to a neat visual effect when you're reading, for instance: the file can be accessed in a dual-page view, like a book, and as you drag with the mouse (or tap the keyboard) so a realistic animated page turning effect sees you move through the document (see the screen grab for a mid-turn example). It's only eye-candy, but is still very nicely done.

And if you're willing to register the program by passing the developers your name and email address, then they'll send you an "unlock" code which also allows you to create PDF files of your own. Office addins enable you to build PDFs directly from Word, Excel or PowerPoint, and a "Create PDF" option from within the viewer also means you can convert Office documents, images, text, ComicBook files (CBR, CBZ) and 300+ other formats to a PDF equivalent.

As PDF creation tools go, this is extremely basic: you can't password-protect your files, configure any security settings, or tweak them in any way. You also don't get any PDF editing or annotation options - these are reserved for the commercial Soda PDF Professional. Still, if reading is enough then Soda PDF does a visually appealing job, and it does make creating PDFs particularly easy.

Please note, Soda PDF comes bundled with the AVG Security Toolbar. If you're not interested, pay attention during setup and make sure you only install what you need.

Verdict:

A good basic PDF reader with an attractive animated page-turning effect, and easy PDF file creation. It's otherwise a little short on functionality, though, and there are much more powerful freeware PDF tools around.

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.
