Staxofax Lite Portable review

Staxofax Lite Portable adds functionality for your standard Windows Clipboard by making it larger and able to hold many clips at once. Store items you use again and again, or do a large volume of copying and pasting without having to go back and forth between two documents or pages.

Pros

Automatic recording: To save a clip to StaxoFax, all you have to do is copy it just like you would anything you want to paste later. The app automatically stores anything you copy using the standard Windows Copy feature and keeps these clips in a list in the left-hand … Read more

Animal Puzzle Game for Toddler review

Softdiv's Animal Puzzle Game for Toddler keeps little ones busy and entertained while they learn fine motor skills and visual cognition. As the name suggests, this free app is more or less an Android rendition of the classic wooden picture puzzle for very young children. Youngsters drag shapes into outlines, aided by sound effects.

Pros

Easy to play: With no more than three or four shapes per animal, and many in single pieces, Animal Puzzle Game for Toddler is suitable for any child old enough to swipe a finger on a touchscreen.

Sound effects: Audible feedback lets players know … Read more

Fishead Analytics review

Mobile Spy review

Mobile Spy runs surreptitiously in the background on the installed device and offers you several monitoring tools you can access through an online interface. You can view Web activity, apps installed, communication logs, and more. While the app essentially works, some of its key features are limited to iOS devices or to BlackBerry, while others require you to buy additional add-ons which we felt are way too expensive.

Pros

Works as advertised: Mobile Spy isn't a scam or malware like many other similar apps. It provides location information, Web site history, address book data, and more, so that you … Read more

Twoo review

As the mobile version of a social/dating site with almost 50 million users worldwide, Twoo comes with an appealing interface and an effective search function, but forces you to pay for basic features that other apps offer for free. This app can help you find friends and possible dates near your location, but charges you for almost everything.

Pros

Appealing design: Twoo features a streamlined design that makes essential information about users easy to access, straight from the results list as well as through the profile page, which lists particulars like education, body type, and height.

Large community: So … Read more

FileStream Image Broadway review

Although it's billed as a photo editor, FileStream's Image Broadway does a lot more than touch up your photos. A recent (and steep) price cut makes Image Broadway a more affordable alternative to Adobe's Photoshop Elements, but it does have a few drawbacks. You can try Image Broadway (with limits) for free.

Pros

Lots of tools: Image Broadway isn't just a photo retoucher; it's a full-featured graphics editor with drawing, painting, filters, effects, layers, paths, and more.

Familiar face: Like most graphics editors, Image Broadway's layout and tools resemble Photoshop's but with its … Read more

ShiftIt for Mac review

ShiftIt for Mac lets you use keyboard shortcuts to quickly adjust window size and position, and manage your screen like you want to. This utility gives you a flexibility that's been missing from the window management options on your Mac, and makes it more convenient than ever to work with multiple windows at once. The downside is that you'll also need to install a different operating system on your computer.

The program is accessible from the toolbar on the top right of your screen. Clicking it opens a drop-down menu that you can use to view hot keys … Read more

Pogoplug review

Pogoplug aims to be a fast and accessible cloud storage solution for your mobile life, by enabling you to quickly upload your photos, music, movies, and other files to a cloud from where you can access them on another mobile device or on your computer whenever you need them. Unfortunately, the latest version of the app comes with a faulty upload feature that doesn't work properly on Android 4.2 KitKat, making it of little use.

After a quick installation, Pogoplug asks you to create a free account that provides 5GB worth of cloud storage, which you can increase … Read more
