Windows 8 leaked screenshots show Windows Live integration, taskbar tweaks

Tangible Windows 8 details are beginning to emerge with some screenshots of the OS making the rounds on the Internet. Not much is revealed, but we do get a glimpse at a couple interesting changes. For starters, taskbar progress indicator support has been expanded to other built-in Windows functions, like hardware installation. Windows Live integration is evolving, too -- you'll be able to...

Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread allows screenshots with no root required

Up until now, all the Android app screenshots you've seen floating around have been taken using either the Android SDK or third-party applications which require root access. That's because Android -- unlike webOS and iOS -- hasn't provided a simple way for users to capture images on their devices' screens. According to Android Central, that has changed in Android 2.3.3. Rooting will no longer...

Banshee media player for Windows goes alpha

Banshee has been one of the top Linux media players for ages, and now the venerable audio and video app has officially made its way to Windows. The first alpha release of Banshee for Windows is now available for download, and it's exactly what you would expect: it's very true to the Linux experience, and it's got a few kinks which still need working out before it's ready for prime time on...

Avast 6 beta buffs up free antivirus with better sandboxing, new Web protection

It may have taken a long time for Avast to move from version 4 to 5, but that's not going to be the case with Avast 6. A beta version has been made available for download, and there are plenty of new features that will make Avast 6 a worthy antivirus program for Windows. Two technologies which were introduced in paid editions of Avast 5 -- the Web Script Shield and site blocking -- have been...

Motorola Connected Music Player for Android is packed with awesomeness

Motorola's new Connected Music Player isn't the first leaked audio app we've seen -- but it's certainly got a leg up on the one we saw from Google. CMP goes way beyond shuffling through your music and video library, building in a ton of (predictably enough) connected features. Let's start with the radio. CMP includes both SHOUTcast integration and the ability to tap into your phone's FM radio...

Songbird app for Android goes beta, we go hands-on

Using Songbird on your desktop or laptop to listen to your cavernous collection of digital music? Good news -- the Songbird team has been working in "super seekrit" (their words, not ours) on bringing you a pocket-sized version for your Android device. Even better, they've announced the availability of the first public beta of Songbird for Android -- and we took it for a spin. Here's the quick...

Jing, the all-in-one screen capture and recording tool from TechSmith, reviewed

TechSmith, with the launch of Snagit more than 20 years ago, is the definitive veteran of screen capture technology. Camtasia Studio, launched almost 10 years later, is now at version 7.1 and remains the best screen recording and video editing suite out there. TechSmith's latest tool, however, is an interesting mix of both Snagit and Camtasia. It's called Jing, and it makes sharing screenshots...

ViewMarks for Firefox makes bookmarks visual and huge

In these days of social bookmarking, ViewMarks is a Firefox add-on that sticks with the old-fashioned way of storing your bookmarks on your own computer. But this is the default behavior for Firefox anyway, so why should you get excited about ViewMarks? It's all in the graphics -- basically, ViewMarks saves a thumbnail along with each bookmark. The result looks kind of like the Speed Dial feature...

Snagit for Mac comes out of beta -- First hands on

Here at DownloadSquad, we're pretty heavy users of screenshot software -- whether it be an operating system's built-in tools, or a third-party app, taking screenshots forms part of our day-to-day routine. We've covered the PC version of Snagit extensively in the past, but now that the beta version of Snagit for Mac has hit release candidate it's time to take a look through what you can expect....

A gallery of high-res Windows Phone 7 app screenshots

While I wasn't one of the handful of Chosen Ones to attend the Windows Phone 7 launch in London yesterday, I have been lucky enough to get my hands on some lovely screenshots of WP7 apps. So far, most major websites have only run photos-of-handsets, complete with skewed angles and glaring reflections. With these images, you can see what the interface of some big-name apps really look like --...

GrabBox auto-saves your Mac screenshots to Dropbox

GrabBox is a handy new Dropbox-powered screenshot tool for OS X. It uses the normal OS X screenshot hotkeys (Apple+Shift+3 and Apple+Shift+4), but the resulting screenshots wind up in your Dropbox public folder. It also automatically shortens the Dropbox URL of your new screenshot and copies it to the clipboard. Think about that for a second: in one fell swoop, you've captured and uploaded a...

webOS 2.0 screenshots appear: QuickOffice, VPN support, Skype?

Now that the Palm NDA has been violated, it looks as though details surrounding webOS 2.0 are going to start leaking at a rapid pace. The folks at Chinese site Wibozi.com certainly think it's fair game at this point, and today they've shared a veritable treasure trove of images captured from the upcoming release. A number of interesting changes are pictured, such as: VPN support broader...

ClipUpload is a super-fast way to share files, screenshots, and text

ClipUpload is definitely one of the neater tools that I've seen today. Once you fire it up, it nestles in a comfy spot in your system tray and waits. When you decide you want to send somebody a file, an image, or a long snippet of text, you just copy that file to your clipboard and click ClipUpload's icon once. That single click makes ClipUpload instantly upload your file to an online host...

Images of IE9's interface leak, including Chrome-like 'start' tab and download manager

There's only four weeks to go until the next IE9 developer preview, and it looks like Chinese leak site Cnbeta might have got its hands on the new build already. I'm not quite sure what to make of the screenshots, nor the Google translation. The Developer Previews (Internet Explorer Test Drive) are not meant to have a user interface -- they're just there to show off the Trident rendering...

Meego's sexy smartphone UI goes on display

Curious about what the upcoming Meego OS will look like on a smartphone? Well, wonder no more! A handful of images have been posted on the official website for all to see. Above are the home screen, launcher, and task switcher interface (from left to right). I can't help but think that Meego's UI has taken cues from its current mobile OS rivals -- which isn't really a surprise since Intel and...
