Volumouse 2 goes 64-bit, adds per-application volume control

Nir Sofer (of NirSoft) makes loads of useful little Windows utilities. One of our favorites, Volumouse, has a new beta available and it offers some nice improvements over its predecessor. To start, Volumouse beta 2 adds support for Windows Vista and Windows 7 per-application volume settings. There's also a new "send hotkeys" feature which lets you use the mouse wheel to fire off custom...

iControlBits for iOS lets you manage your Transmission torrents

There's a New Year's treat for Transmission users waiting in the App Store. It seems Apple has approved iControlBits -- a new app that can remotely manage your torrent downloads. Apple has historically blocked any torrent-related apps, like Drivetrain, an app very similar to iControlBits, which was submitted last May. The app sells for $1.99 and gives you the ability to monitor and control...

CrossLoop brings remote desktop control to Android

If you use CrossLoop to remotely access your desktop computer -- or assist friends, family, and clients -- you've now got one more way to get connected. Those of you who also own an Android device can beta test CrossLoop's new app, which brings a good bit of the desktop app's functionality to your smartphone (or tablet). New users will need to create a CrossLoop account to try out the app, and...

MouseFIGHTER lets you navigate your desktop with your keyboard instead

Like to spend as little time as possible mousing around your desktop? Windows has a built-in feature called Mouse Keys which lets you move your pointer by using the numeric keypad, but not every keyboard has one. If you're using a netbook or laptop without a number pad and you like the sound of Mouse Keys, check out MouseFIGHTER. It's a free program which lets you use the arrow keys to navigate...

uTorrent Web lets you control torrent downloads on your iPhone

Torrent control applications aren't ever going to make it into the App Store. But that's OK -- your iPhone or iPod touch has a Web browser onboard, and that's capable of running plenty of Web apps that Apple can't ban. µTorrent Web, for example, which brings the remote control power of the Falcon project to your iPhone. Falcon debuted recently, providing slick zero-config access to your...

Windows Live Sync 2011 offers slick peer-to-peer sync and remote control

Windows Live 2011 is arriving soon, but some of you -- myself included -- may have gotten your hands on the download a little early. It was, after all, like every other Microsoft product, predictably leaked to torrent sites over the weekend. Live Sync has evolved from Live Mesh, and if you speak to just about anyone who used Mesh they'll tell you it's awesome. Sync now integrates with SkyDrive...

Spotifycontrol brings some much-needed external controls and notifications to Spotify

Spotify, the (European) king of music-on-demand, is a real pain in the ass to actually use. I mean, it works, but only just. It's one of those annoying apps that minimises itself to your system tray -- and while that might be OK with Windows XP, on Windows 7 that's just crap. I want Spotify on my SUPERBAR! I want the ability to stop, start and change tracks without having to dig Spotify out of my...

uTorrent Falcon lets you remote control your torrent downloads from anywhere

µTorrent's WebUI has been providing browser-based management of your torrent transfers for quite some time, but setting it up can be a bit complicated for casual users. Port forwarding, dynamic DNS... it's a pain to sort out if you're not-so-skilled with routers and remote access. The new µTorrent Web beta changes all that, adding totally hassle-free access to your queue from...

TeamViewer releases iPhone remote support app, and it rocks

TeamViewer has always been a great, no-fuss way to connect to remote computer systems. With the (sort-of) recently added presentation features, voice and video chat, and improved window sharing options, version 5 of the desktop app is the best release so far. And now -- despite what my pal Constantin at TeamViewer told me a bit over a year ago -- they've launched an iPhone app [iTunes web...

Trusty old remote computing app TightVNC nears 2.0 release

Ages ago when I first started looking for a free alternative to PCAnywhere, one of the first apps I stumbled across was TightVNC. It served me faithfully over the years, and at long last the project is nearly ready to reach version 2.0. Over at the official site, they have just posted a download for TightVNC 2.0 beta 1 -- and it's a complete rewrite of the TightVNC code. The new release is...

Vimeo's Flash player controller rocks - why is everyone else's so horrible?

I found this really intriguing video via kottke's remaindered links of a photographer who took a pic of himself every day for six years, and then threw all the images together into a movie. But this post isn't about the cool video - it's about Vimeo's Flash player controller. After pressing play, mouseover the video again and note the timeline controller that pops up. Now click anywhere in that...
