Though we've certainly seen more refined examples of CD-labeling software, this app nevertheless gets the job done. The interface is easy enough to understand but isn't very appealing to look at, and we would have liked more layout templates than the four provided. The default view is tiny and hard to see, so you'll definitely need to use the zoom tool frequently. You can either have the program access an online database to retrieve CD information, or you can manually enter it yourself, thought the latter process is more complicated and convoluted than it needs to be. You can add images to both the jewel case and the booklet and change fonts and background colors in all locations, including the spine. However, we were miffed to discover we couldn't remove the characters CDR from the spine during editing. Once you get the hang of this program, you'll find it a competent solution, but you can definitely find more polished, user-friendly CD-labeling apps.
