Several great software packages have been released this month. Let’s take a look:
Adobe Creative Suite 6 – the standard in on-screen and on-page design packages came available earlier this month, and it’s a corker. New features and slipstream speed have combined to great effect here from the denizens of computerized communications, Adobe. Catch a quick review here.
AVG Free Edition 2012 12.0 (Build 2178a5019) – consistently the easiest and quickest catcher of all thsoe little invaders that try to mess up our computers. AVG just keeps getting better, and I haven’t had a worm or virus since I started using AVG six years ago. Check it out here.
SIMMS 2012 – KCSI, the makers of the inventory and accounting software flagship program, SIMMS, has continued to expand and diversify the management process with concern for your needs built-in seemingly overnight. I’ve used SIMMS for inventorying everything from my archival information, photographs, document collections, restaurant supplies, music, bar stock and dozens of other purposes. The valuation of the inventory items has been invaluable for accurate insurance values alone. Check it out here. I’ve also been tipped that an on-line version is coming soon, and personally, I can’t wait.
Camfrog Video Chat 6.2 (Build 189) – I got a chance earlier to test drive Camfrog, a quick and fun program that lets you combine text messaging and video. Take a look and try it out — lots of fun See it here.
Power DVD 12.0 – Now on build 1618.54, CyberLink’s PowerDVD lets you play all forms of media from video to music and beyond. For someone like me with a machine dedicated to media playing for at least half my day, my entire catalog of media remains at my fingertips constantly, including — since I also am involved in visual design — all my images. It’s a one-stop media index and optimizer. Solid gold. Check it out here.
I’ll mention the newest June software gems in a couple of weeks when I’ll have happily found some more winners for you.
