Awesome 5 stars
I dislike, to an extreme, the default windows Vista, 7, 8, full row select. What a work flow disrupting concept that is... This software gets rid of it, which it shouldn't have to do, MS shouldn't have put it in to begin with.

YTubePlayer YTubePlayer

It's good but not a replacement 2 stars
It's a neat toy, that's about it. I don't see why I would use this instead of just going to Youtube. It saves playlists, but so does youtube, it allows you to share to friends within it's own network, not FB or other popular social media sites. There's nowhere to grab the video url, you cannot delete more than one video at a time from the playlist. There's no search for adding friends even if you knew someone who was using this software. Like I said, it's a toy.

ServersCheck Monitoring Software ServersCheck Monitoring Software

Absolutely unbeatable 5 stars
This software is not only comprehensive but easy to use at the same time. It's great for large businesses and corporations but at the same time is excellent for small business and home networks because you get 20 free monitors without having to buy the software! Been using it for years and will no doubt continue.

Startup Delayer Startup Delayer

Perfect for servers 5 stars
I have been using this on servers for years, it really smooths things out when you have a bunch of very CPU intensive apps or services starting at once. Some fail to start from lack of resource, but delay their startup a couple minutes and they are fine.

Edraw Mind Map Edraw Mind Map

Excellent software 5 stars
I've tried mind map software in the past and didn't quite know what to do with it. This one gave some templates that immediately answered a few of my questions as to why would I use this, and what's a mind map. Interface is very modern and gives an MS Office feel.

Best of the best 5 stars
This program has everything you could possibly need for a screen capture app. What sold me was the awesome FTP function and excellent editor. I use this every day to post images of how-to's on my web site. It also comes with a host of other cool tools like a magnifier, pixel ruler, protractor and the coolest white board you'll ever use!

GeeMail GeeMail

I don't get it 1 stars
What's the point of this? It has only basic gmail functionality and the big selling point seems to be "Access your gmail without opening your browser", like opening my browser is some huge task? My browser is open 24/7 anyway.

Couldnt ask for more 5 stars
For free and even if not, this is an awesome Outlook add-on! If you have the need for quick text replies, moving emails to other folders with a single click, copy email address of focused email, and much more, you have got to give this a try.

7stacks 7stacks

Very nice addition 5 stars
I tend to use extra launchers, shortcut apps, etc. This one rates high with me because it doesn't run in the system tray, it simply runs in the background only when one of it's created menus are open. Close the menu, the app closes too. Great idea and I'll probably use it for some time to come.

Poladroid Poladroid

Very unique software 5 stars
I have used other Polaroid simulation software, but this one has the coolest interface I have ran across in quite some time. It even makes you wait for a minute while the image "develops" in front of your eyes. The result is distinctly different from the source image, very nice job in recreating the Polaroid feel.

DNS Benchmark DNS Benchmark

Nice little tool 4 stars
One of those tools you don't realize you need until you see it. It showed me that the dns server I had been statically putting in all my PCs was quite a bit slower than others I could have been using. For free, there's nothing to complain about with this app.

Envelope Printer Lite Envelope Printer Lite

Not enough bang for the buck 3 stars
This is a nice little application, key word "Little". It does one thing, prints envelopes. It's not worth $20, this should be a $7.99 purchase. The price was the reason I didn't buy it after trying it.

MJPEG Surveillance MJPEG Surveillance

Cannot get it to work with my cameras 3 stars
I have 3 cameras of two types, I have them all password protected and this program doesn't have an option to enter credentials, it seems to want a wide open camera which kind of defeats the purpose of security right? Other than that it seems to be a pretty nice app.

Classic Shell Classic Shell

Excellent 5 stars
When windows 7 came out I was beside myself at the fact that MS omitted the classic menu style. The way I arrange my menu simply cannot be accommodated with the overly compact new style. Being unable to get classic buttons like delete, etc. Onto the explorer toolbar was annoying too. This program took care of everything. If you've got vista or 7, you need this.

Been using it for a long time 5 stars
I work in an IT situation where we access over 300 pc's over our network via VNC every day, but with other VNC apps, you have to configure firewalls, etc. So at home, when (for example) my sisters kid virus's up her pc, I just have her start ShowMyPC, read me the password it gives and I'm in, no firewall config/port forwarding. I have not noticed any slow speeds with this app and have used it with hundreds of remote pc's. For free, you can't beat this one.

This app is extremely lacking for options, you just take the screen shot and upload. There is no option to set your own ftp server, which I use in another application. I suppose if you want dirt simple, then go with this one.

I have been trying to talk my wife into digitizing our bills and invoices for a long time, it would open up some space where file cabinets currently sit. This software does exactly what i was trying to explain to her. Although it will take quite a while to scan them all with a home flatbed scanner, when I am done it will have been worth the $25

EaseUS Todo Backup Free EaseUS Todo Backup Free

Very nice but missing features 4 stars
I must disagree with the previous reviewer in that this is nowhere near as good as Acronis, but for free it is a great option. Features it is badly missing are scheduled backups, differential and incremental backups which saves huge amounts of space and certainly time when scheduling backup tasks. Paragon also recently came out with a free version which does the same thing this does. Great for home users who can click the backup button every so often, but for business (this products web site says it's for home and small business) this is no good without scheduling.

Classic Start Menu Classic Start Menu

Not great but better than 7 4 stars
It's better than the 7 menu if you hate that new style like I do. But this app is lathargic and cannot seem to keep it's settings straight as far as how I set it to sort the menu items. It also has a major flaw where the tray icon has a hide tray icon selection, but there's no way to get it back unless you manually edit the registry. Still, better than dealing with the new vista/7 menu system.

WebDwarf WebDwarf

For free? Yeah you should grab it. 4 stars
Granted it's crippled compared to the big boys but if you just need something to create a page at a time and you don't mind that the pages all have the html file extension, then this is for you. It couldn't be easier to use. Add images or whatever from any folder on your computer, when you publish to another folder, it makes copies. There are also ftp and other publishing options. The only thing I don't like is that there are no functions for changing the file extension of the rendered pages, and there is no way to edit/add meta tags like keywords and description.

Awesome product 5 stars
Reading through the reviews here I am surprised to find anything but 5 star ratings. This office suite is worlds above any other freebie and just hairs behind MS office in only certain aspects. OpenOffice.org is a great product that people would do well to adopt as their go to office suite. Opens and saves MS file types too.

When I first got into RSS readers, I tried many of the freebies here at snapfiles. I ended up using Greatnews for years but it seemed to get buggier as time went on and the dev team have not put out a new version in an extremely long time. So I went to this one and wow what a difference! Feed Demon has a lot of non-techie user options and features. There are a couple things I would add to it if I were the developer so i emailed them and got nice responses. Great program with good support and current releases = Great choice.

I know there are other freebie burning apps out there and I probably have three quarters of them installed already, but i am a junkie so I downloaded this one anyway. Not only does it work just fine, but has quite a few options such as data disk, audio, video, ISO support and copy disk support. And the number one cool thing about this software is..it smokes when you burn a cd! Cool!

Behind the times 3 stars
I have had a Neato labeler app for several years that is just about the same thing as this one, I would think newer is better rather than a different face for the same functions. No lightscribe support and the list of label types is extremely limited. I am sticking with ... which has hundreds of label types and supports lightscribe, oh and currently supplies a total of over 5000 images.

Not for Vista 64-bit 3 stars
I have Vista 64 bit (I know, I am sorry too). This app crashed when i tried opening a photo the first time. The second time it was fine, but then crashed again while editing the photo. Seems like a nice looking and feeling app and probably does fine on 32 bit OS's. One thing I was unable to find is a way to resize a selection area after dragging it out, which is crippling for a photo editing app IMO.

Everything Everything

Definitely light and fast 4 stars
I have always liked the "idea" of a desktop search tool but tried bunches of them and hated every one. Either they are very bloated and weigh down my system heavily, or they are extremely complicated or take forever to index, or SOMETHING I don't like. This one is different, it is extremely fast, extremely light weight and takes only seconds (seemingly) to index your drives. I am not quite understanding why it comes with an ftp and http server, but why not I suppose.

Awesome tool 5 stars
I have always used an alternative uninstall tool, mainly because I want to be able to sort by installation date. This one goes much further than my old faithful by seeking out and removing registry entries and orphaned files left behind from the uninstallations. I could do without the cookie/temp file cleaner though, too typical and there are tons of those tools available.

Virtual Font Folder Virtual Font Folder

Good idea but..... 2 stars
This is a good idea, but the problem I have with it is that they require you to buy multiple licenses if you want to sync multiple pc's on a network. I have about 10 computers on my home network, i am certainly not going to spend $150 for something that I can do with windows file sync or something free like Syncback.
showShow review details License: Free Trial ($15.00) Details...
The software developer responded to this review on Dec 18, 2008: Thanks for the comments. Synchback and other file tools will certainly synch font files. But they will not install the fonts and make them available for use in other applications. If you need multiple licenses, please contact me at helpdesk at loseyourmind dot com for discounted pricing.

While sitting in the tray, it used about 40MB of ram, which seems to be a waste if you only use it one time to switch your location.

Excellent tool 5 stars
This is a must have for people running Windows based servers of any kind. I like the fact that it will send email warnings for different scenarios, not just a complete drive failure. Auto updates, drives temps displayed in the sys tray in celcius, fahrenheit and other units I never knew existed.

Could have been great 4 stars
If the author would have kept up on development of this software, it would be awesome. As it stands, it is still better than the other 3 I tried out today. But the "watch" function seems to not work along with directbid and it says all the auctions are finished, which they are not. It will not connect to a time server when you tell it to sync, and then it locks up. Bummer because it would have been a keeper.

This is actually a fresh idea, rather than yet another burner or photo gallery maker. I have tons of software I purchased online, regularly about 300+ programs, every so often I get the bug to go look for updates and now this thing does it for me, too cool! It even takes you right to the download url on most.

Xion Audio Player Xion Audio Player

Good but... 4 stars
The skins are very cool, lots to choose from. But, the playlist, eq and other windows do not get skinned. They remain win95 looking, ugly and outdated. I have tried so many players trying to get away from winamp, but none have the full package to compete. Jet audio has come the closest, but still has it's problems. As the snapfiles review board said, this is a good player but probably not for audiophiles.

Heavy, baron, expensive 3 stars
Another reviewer said "light footprint", if 13MB of ram used up with it sitting in the tray is light for an app doing nothing until you trigger it, then ok, light footprint (sarcasm). Not only that but the only other function I found was that it can speak the work if you want it to. But then again, with the MS voice engine, if you pronounce a word like that, people will think you have something wrong with you. This app is actually not terrible, but not worth $20

Cerberus FTP Server Cerberus FTP Server

I have used many ftp server apps, mainly because I am addicted to downloading and trying software, even if I am happy with what I already have. This one is very fast, light on the resources, has features like autoban, and directories are extremely simple to set up per user. It is a great ftp server.

Panorama2Flash Panorama2Flash

Extremely lacking 2 stars
This app does work, but it lacks features badly. There are practically no options. It makes a simple flash panorama from an existing panoramic photo, creates a web page to display it in, and that's it. It does allow for multiple files processed at once, but I would think there would be template options, hot spot links to link the pano's together, etc. Too simple to be useful for me.

The software developer responded to this review on Sep 16, 2008: Panorama2Flash is a simple application for batch publishing Flash panorama tours. For creating professional virtual tours with hotspots, templates, maps, and many other interactive components, Tourweaver is the choice. For those who only do single Flash panoramas, Panorama2Flash can help to save a lot of time. The two products are developed to meet different needs of people.

Serv-U Serv-U

Good but not great 2 stars
I actually purchased this years ago and still use it on one of my servers. Since then I have found others that are much better. Compared to others like cerberous or filezilla, this one is quite clunky and slow. No export or import of user accounts, and you have to keep buying it in order to keep getting updates. The ban ip feature has never worked for me, if I ban an IP, then the service is inaccessible to anyone, not just the banned IP. Confusing to set up as well.

Small, streaming flash files when the project is exported. Everything is customizable, the list of pro's is endless. if you need to create tutorials and how to guides, this is the one.

This is just what i was looking for to replace the bulky crap software that comes with hardware mp3 players. The manufacturer integrates the install with the driver install, so most non-techie users think they have to use the 'super dooper mp3 copier to player bulk-o-matic" to populate their player with music. When most mp3 players will simply open within windows explorer. Music collection in one pane, mp3 player in the other, copy/paste, can't get any easier.

Why? 2 stars
I see no use for this at all. It is extra clicks to open programs, folders, etc. If you have folders and things you access frequently, don't you normally put shortcuts on the desktop that DON'T take up a bunch of system resource? It also did not see any web sites I went to, most likely because I use avant browser, not IE. No favs show up because avant uses online storage. When I closed the program, it crashed and wanted to send info to the developer to help them figure it out, not a bad thing, but it did crash on close which means everything I just did was lost (would matter if I liked the app)

Other than that, it is awesome and the developer seems to keep working on it, so it does not seem as though it will be unsupported any time soon. All in all a great app.

Stick Stick

Bulky novelty 2 stars
There are a few things I do not like about this application. First, it takes a lot of system resource to run it, which means for an app like this which needs to run at startup if it is going to be useful, it slows the pc down considerably. Also, when I uninstalled it i got an error of some kind (yes, i exited the program first). The rss tab is kind of neat but you have to make it quite large in order to read the feed easily, which I can do in my browser anyway. The notes are ok I guess, but if anyone uses outlook, then why use this? The tabs are jittery when they roll up and down, there is no "global" tab settings, you have to set each tabs preferences individually. I like neat apps like this, but it's just not worth the resource it uses.

Must have 5 stars
I am by no means a graphic artist, but I do all the artwork for my web sites, cd covers, etc. I have always used a combination of a few programs to accomplish what I needed. There is a VERY old app called iPphoto plus that I have kept around since the windows 95 days because it has a couple simple functions that are much harder to do in todays higher end apps. But this Photoscape fills that gap. So many useful functions and so easy to use. this a must have for those of us out here who do not want to pay for expensive editing software, but can get what we need done with combinations of apps like this one. Excellent graphics app here, donwload and keep this one. One thing is ironic though, it is a graphics editor (among other things) yet the buttons are large, gray, square and cumbersome...looks like a win98 app.

If this company completed the package by selling a panoramic tour making app along with panorama maker, i would return the other one and purchase theirs.

Spider Player Pro Spider Player Pro

Good but not good enough 4 stars
It is a decent player, but lacks a few things. One of major issues I have is the equalizer spectrum is to narrow. Winamp and other high end players give a range of 60hz to 10k or better. This one give 80hz to 14k. So I will not be using this to test any recordings or when I want to hear a nice "thump". I do like the simplistic ripper though, and it is lighter on the resources than most others. It does lack in the skin department as well, the default spider skin is rather clumsy looking and the other wmp classic is too "windows 95" looking. Fix the eq and I'm sold.

It's just another toolbar with novelty functions to cluter up your browser. More than that, it is a huge advertisement for fotomat, trying to get you to print pics online. I can say I have seen worse toolbars, but the functionality is just not worth the real estate it takes up. As far as the bookmarking goes, you have to export the bookmarks in order to get them to another pc. I use Avant Browser, have for years. It has online storage of all your bookmarks and autofills, so they are common to all computers you own and/or use. I'm gonna have to give this one the "It was fun for 5 minutes" rating.

This is up in the air as far as yes/no is concerned. Yes it worked as a local fake ftp server and shows the user/pass for all accounts that I used to log into it. Which is great if you are switching computers and need to enter your ftp info into the new pc's ftp client. As far as recovering passwords for users of my ftp server, no it does not do that unless you let it run in place of the actual ftp server software, wait until everyone tries to log in, and collect the passwords. But that is not what is advertised, so it is not an issue. When you close this app, it launches your browser pointed to the authors web site. Ok I guess since this is a one time per new pc app.

Desktop Sidebar Desktop Sidebar

This is one cool add-on 4 stars
Where to start; Firstly, I am not fond of things taking up my desktop space, so on my regular 19" LCD, this is too much space taken, but on my wide screen laptop it is just fine. It did crash several times as I was setting up the panels i wanted to display and changing skins. But once all that is taken care of, it runs fine. As for light on the resources; at first it showed only 6MB PF usage, but shot up to 23MB after a reboot. Not so light, but does replace my email checker, so there is a trade off. I love how outlooks folders are integrated in the sidebar, very cool to preview and even reply to emails right from there. The clock is cool, stock reports (if you are into that kind of thing), POP email checker for the rest of your accounts, which I have 12 being checked currently by poptray. One thing that steers me away is the fact that there are only 66 total add on panels available by other users, which makes me think the app has been abandoned by most.

They get moved to a backup server on the lan if they are X-X-XX old. It works perfectly and very intuitively.

I am a regular use of Spin It Again from Acoustica, so I though i would try this one out since it is similar. Problems for me are that it has no cleaning effects at all. Your recording is as dirty and full of crackles as it was on the LP. Also, the online lookup is nice but I still had to enter all track names manually. High quality mp3 (according to this app) is 172kbps, not my idea of high quality mp3 files. Although it will record to wave as well and I could convert to mp3 in a different program. It has no burning engine and uses IMAPI, so it will not burn a cd if you do not have Windows XP or Vista. The automatic track splitting did not work at all for the recording I did, and it was a plane jane music tape. Also, it did not warn me that my level might be too high until i was many minutes into the recording. So I just let it go anyway. The recording sounds fine, but I could have done the same thing with audacity or other freeware.

Options galore 4 stars
This is a really nice looking program that offers loads of options for just about everything you would ever want to know, do or manipulate about an audio file. The learning curve seems a bit large, but I am sure once a person uses it for a few days it will become second nature. The only problem I had was that it froze on me when adding only 89 files to the database. They are all stored on a network drive, but this is a gigabit network so it should not be a problem. The program does a great job displaying info about artists and songs and other info you never would have thought needed, but is cool to have if you have the time to fill it all in. Definitely a must have for a serious music collector. I also find the equalizer a bit underdeveloped, but I am an eq freak so it may be just me. Worth a test or 15 (that's how many uses you get in the trial). I don't care if it calls home, I do not plan on using an illegal code so nothing to worry about.

Rather than taking a normal screen shot of a web page (as often as I need to do that?) This app will take the shot of the whole page, not just what shows in the browser. Has a few quirks, but still pretty neat for free.

Acoustica MP3 CD Burner Acoustica MP3 CD Burner

Wma files 5 stars
All Acoustica apps do support WMA files. But not DRM protected ones. No software can use, change, burn or manipulate in any way a DRM protected WMA file. This is NOT a limitation of this software, but a restriction placed within the files by Microsoft. If you purchase and download protected WMA files, it's your own fault that the only app that will do anything with them is Windows Media Player.

Best of it's kind 5 stars
There are not many apps out there that specialize in this type of procedure, this one is so easy to use and the noise removal and equalizing effects are superb. I have transferred at least 40 cassettes, 10 LP's and even some audio from an old reel to reel, using this program. Perfect as far as I am concerned.

Ad-Aware Free Antivirus Ad-Aware Free Antivirus

Why is this so popular? 3 stars
I admit, when I was less experienced with malware and virus problems and how to fix them, I too downloaded adaware regularly. But compared to some of the power apps like Spyware Terminator, and what used to be Ewido, ad-aware is a kids toy. It misses tons of "baddies" and does a terrible job removing stubborn ones that it does find. On the good side, the developers do keep up to date as far as regularly updating the database. but this app just does not do the job well enough. Same review can be applied to the never dying "Spybot".

Collectorz.com Music Collector Collectorz.com Music Collector

Too complex for the casual collector 3 stars
This is a great program but it lacks a few things. One, I buy ALL my cd's as downloads, so it really needs the ability to look up cd info via mp3 tags. Then let the user decide which songs he/she may or may not have from that disk. Secondly, I could not get it to download album art automatically. Then I ran across the plethora of options, inputs, etc. and decided it was just too much work in order to show off my cd collection.

I have read the opinions of some who have trouble with this app. Which is understandable if you have had your XP machine running for a couple years and have made alterations. But I installed this on a new installation of XP Pro and it went perfectly without a hitch. It (surprisingly) takes very little system resource, and looks/feels just like a Mac! I am not a fan of OSX but wanted to see how well this app performed. Everything is great and I am writing this review from the XP machine I installed it on. Lot's of neat little tricks, cool toolbar, etc. I suppose if you like OSX's look but want the PC flexibility, install this immediately after a fresh install of XP.

It works with some effort 3 stars
In this day and age, we are as lazy as humanly possible when it comes to computing. This app would have won best app of the year in 1991, but i use Any2Icon for this task because you can simply save any image, jpg, gif, bmp, etc. Even save right from a web page, no editing. Load it and the app resizes it on it's own. With quite a few options. This one takes the effort of resizing images in an external editor.

It is missing an important feature. Some people need to use it for source=FTP and destination= LOCAL. It has only the opposite.

The software developer responded to this review on Nov 27, 2006: Thanks for your feedback. The source and destination are just labels. You can re-label them however you wish at any time (including the time you create the profile) so you can call the Source the Destination, or FTP Server, or anything you like. SyncBackSE has been commercial software for nearly two years and was never free. SyncBack freeware (a different product) has been available for over three years.

When I saw this app I though "cool, something similar to the late, great Sygate"! It is fairly similar but it would not let anything access internet or network. After clicking allow on everything I needed, I went in to the advanced options and allowed certain apps full access......nothing. I even chose the "allow all" option which is supposed to turn off the firewall, but I still had no internet or network connectivity. After fighting it for about 15 minutes, I had to uninstall and go back to my trusty sygate.

Stickies Stickies

For those without outlook 4 stars
This is a cool app, it seem to leave a fairly small footprint on your pc resources. The options are great, the networking and email functions are great to send stickies back and forth to people or PCs in your friends list, instant connectivity over a LAN. The only complaint I have is that after closing the app and re-opening, it revert my sticky titles back to their original before i edited them, which is the first line of the note. This is much too long. I titled my notes thing like "lunch" or "meeting" and after closing and re-opening, the notes now have the titles, "lunch at subway with Marianne and mari" and "Board meeting at 10am in the committee room, bring notes on project x". If not for this flaw, the program would be perfect for those without outlook, and it's own notes functionality with reminders and everything else this one has (depending on if you have an exchange server, or a third party pst share)

Once in a while I needed to rename multiple files, so I would jump on the net and grab any renamer i came across. But this one I kept because it was so simple and works perfectly. I now purchase music files from a web site regularly and they come named some very funky way, so I use this with 3 rules stacked to take a bunch of mp3 files from a 40 character name full of underscores, dots and numbers, into just the song name.mp3 Does them alll at once and does them all correctly every time. I use Inno Setup as well for any app I write, it seems to me that the guy above has got some computer trouble and does not realize it.

Web Update Builder Web Update Builder

This is an awesome app 5 stars
For me, I host a lot of web sites, and some of the self proclaimed webmasters are clueless. This makes it so easy for them to edit their pages. And I can customize every aspect of what they can and cannot edit, which saves me from a phone call at midnight on a Tuesday from someone who needs me to restore a file they have screwed up. This is exactly what I have been looking for, for quite some time. I even tried to write my own app just like this using xml and VB. But I am not the worlds best programmer so instead I made a screen saver :-) The price seems high when just about every app out there is 40 to 50 bucks. But this pays for itself very quickly once I distribute the created EXE files to my customers since I no longer get calls to help edit sites, my time is worth money when I can be working on other projects.

Pretty cool little launch app. It is kind of strange to set up at first, but once you understand it, you are off and running. I like the scrolling info at the top of each menu box. The one gripe I have about it is that it sits in the system tray and was using over 26MB of ram just sitting there. I am also not a big fan of extra stuff sticking out of the sides of my screen. But overall, it's an original idea for a launcher and would be great for some people.

This is the most useful thing I have ever used, and have been using it for years. Not only can you do the plain old uninstall. But it also show items without uninstallers, and the best part is that it shows you where on the pc the files are located, what the web address is, the company name, version, etc. It is miles beyond the plain add/remove within windows CP. Oh, almost forgot. It is great for detecting spyware too, how??? It will sort the items by installation date, so if you just got some 3rd party crap installed with your new P2P app, just open my Uninstaller and sort by date, you will see what has been installed today and can start removing it from there, or at least know what was installed so you can fight it.

This is a pretty good product, it makes a prenamed backup before cleaning what it has found to be bad registry entries.

One feature is the choice of skins, so not only can I change the color of a folder but the style as well. RF does not do this, BUT RF does have a much wider spectrum of colors to choose from. The only thing I find about this app that annoys me is that when you apply a new skin, all your icons arrange by name on your desktop. So I have to put them all back where I want them afterwards. All in all, I like this one better.

Once you have it set up, it is a snap to transfer stuff with little or no effort. The program comes with only two extensions configured to send in ascii mode though, probably need to copy an ascii list from another ftp program and add them into this one to avoid corrupt files of certain types. That's the only thing I have found that's not perfect about this app.

I have another tutorial creation program that does screen shots with animated cursors and other things, it's great, but sometimes I need actual video, and this program does the job perfectly. It allows me to speak into a mic while recording my screen capture, and when I'm done I have it convert to flash. This also creates a web page that has the flash movie already embedded, and it compresses more than I expected, which is a good thing. There are other options for converting, bitrate, sound/no sound, and many more. The author has updated it at least once per month that I can tell which tells me he/she is on top of things. The only complaint I have is that the flash conversion is very slow, but I am sure that will get better with future versions.

I like how this app allows you to edit html pages right from the server, then uploads the edited file from your editors temp directory. But it won't do the same for php files that I can tell. The other thing is that while transferring 30-40 files at a time, it stopped on me and I had to force it to close, then could not delete a file in a directory I was uploading from because it was locked by the surfer.exe still running. Other than that, it is a pretty unique FTP client.

It has all the same functions accept you can set US to automatically put a drop shadow under the screen shot, which make them look professional without extra editing. US also allows you to drag from the screen and drop on the desktop to automatically create a jpg file. But US does not have the "add cursor" feature that MWSnap does. Also, US is not free :-( I agree with Snapfiles that this is probably the best Screen shot tool available in the free category.

Karaoke Anything! Karaoke Anything!

People need to understand 5 stars
Removing vocals from a stereo mix is next to impossible. If a program such as this can do even a mediocre job, then it is doing great. To remove vocals from a song, software needs to remove certain frequencies from the overall mix, and in doing this, yes it is going to sound different. To actually remove the vocals, you would need the original recording in it's 24, 48, or whatever, channel mix, and simply shut off the vocal tracks. One common misconception about Karaoke is that you are hearing the original song with the vocals removed, when in fact you are hearing studio musicians hired to record the song without vocals. So for what this app is trying to do, it does about as good as you're going to find anywhere else.

Easy File Sharing Web Server Easy File Sharing Web Server

Just what i needed but... 3 stars
This software is VERY easy to install and does just what it says....almost. It is up and running literally within minutes. But when you choose to disable the forums within it, there still shows a link to the forums when a user logs in. If a user clicks this link the software tells them they might not be logged in, this is confusing for users. The forum link should be GONE if you disable forums within the admin interface. Another con is that you cannot specify file types to be uploaded, so how is a webmaster to know someone won't upload malicious content? I need to narrow my users ability to upload files to 4 types, this is the number one reason I have not purchased the software. Not to mention their support team just blew me off after 2 emails about the problems. Bad support = no sale in my book.

Another cool thing is that I back this all up to an external USB hard drive, which I can then take with me to plug into my laptop and have all the same music I have at home, always synchronized.

I wanted a simple program to grab the pics off the camera and delete them. With my old camera i just did it through windows explorer, but this one won't allow that. So I came across this app here at snapfiles and it's like someone heard me ask for it! Great job to the author. The only thing I could say being constructive is that it could use a thumb view in case some pictures are bad or blurry, they could be skipped. But I can also do that after they have been transferred so it's not a big deal at all.
