5 Free Softwares You Can’t Afford to Miss

Here is a list of 5 free software you can’t afford to miss.

1. Mobile Me

Mobile Me is a new Apple Software that allows your data to be updated once and used anywhere. MobileMe stores all your email, contacts, etc. as a cloud and pushes them down to your iPhone, iPod, Mac, and PC. Once you update anything on your iPhone (or any mobile phone) Mobile Me will automatically update all your devices. [Update: This software costs $99/yr as of date, but the guest author has commented below that a free evaluation version is out soon].

2. Pixel Cryptor

PixelCryptor allows you to smartly encrypt your data using picture and image files and later can be decrypted using the same picture on your computer or the one where PixelCryptor is installed. The advantage is that you can create your own images too which are more unique than passwords.

3. Log Me In

If you need total access to your home PC from anywhere in the world, then use LogMeIn, which allows you to virtually access your desktop anywhere in the world with a single click. Go to Products and grab LogMeIn free version. Just install this software on the remote desktop you want to access. That’s it!

4. Open Office

OpenOffice, is a Microsoft Office-like suite that has already been a major breakthrough to make Word, Excel, etc. documents accessible for free rather than using Microsoft’s Office which is a paid software. Other features of OpenOffice include creation of Presentations and now Open Office 3.0 also supports PDF editing.

5. iSpring

If you are looking to convert your PowerPoint presentations into flash presentations with no knowledge of flash, iSpring is the solution. This new software can convert any presentation of yours to flash presentations for free. The best advantage is that you can convert big size presentations into a few MBs of size only.

    Didn’t know about iSpring. I’ll be testing this out as my app of the week for educators.

  7. eDeskOnline says:

    There are several online applications now, talking about cloud computing eDeskOnline is on par with others where you can access your information not only on mobile but also on your GPRS enabled handset(need not be high end phones).

  8. Manpreet Singh says:

    @ Chris I have tested ispring to make a presentation for my little brother..It works fine and has two options while to play slides:
    1. Auto timer: where the slides play like a flash movie

    2. Self timer: where you click next or previous to view next or previous slide manually

    @ eDeskOnline you have shared a master piece as normal update of calendar or contact or reminder will not take much of space so 100MB is enough for the starters..

    Tech Insiders news with me is that Zoho is also coming up with cloud computing application.

    Thanks for all of your comments

    Hello people as we broke the insiders Apple news and promised that you will get mobile me free for evaluation. Mobile Me has finally decided to launch a special 2 months free version for all users who wan to give Mobile Me a shot for using it(got to me.com).

    Though you will have specify you credit card number for security purposes. But you wont be charged anything for a full 2 month period. You will only pay anything if you decide to use it more than 2 months.

    We have also got a confirmed news that your free version will get extended to 4 months duration(120 days) rather than 2 months (60 days) period as Apple is not getting enough customers to use Mobile Me so they might extend the free duration.
