Talking Pierre the Parrot Free is a funny app featuring Pierre the Parrot who mimics everything you say or just parts of it. The app runs smoothly, features nice graphics, and provides you with a few other options such as recording Pierre's sounds and sharing them with your friends -- making this a nice download if you have kids.
The download and installation went easily, but in order to fully optimize the graphic quality of Talking Pierre the Parrot Free, we were instructed to download 26MB of game data; this only took a couple of minutes. The silly parrot … Read more
Instant Sketch Free is designed to turn any photo you take or have stored in your photo library into a sketched image and it does so quite well. The app looks fairly basic, at first, but the filter runs quickly; and with an HD mode that creates more manga-like images than the standard SD filter, you can go above and beyond what most all-in-one photo filters offer.
The key to Instant Sketch Free is the added functionality that you won't find in regular filtering tools. Most single-function photo editors lack the depth needed to merit a download. But Instant … Read more
Instaker Free is an Instagram browsing and downloading app for the iPhone that allows you to view the top images on Instagram in a number of categories and download them to your device. The app can be used with or without logging in to your Instagram and is very flexible in terms of both browsing and searching the large library of photos available on Instagram.
When you first download Instaker Free you can start browsing Instagram immediately. There are a few pop-up ads and an ad bar, but they never get in the way of clicking through the images. You … Read more
The biggest knock on the encryption offered by many cloud storage services is that the company itself can decrypt the data. The free ProtectedText encrypted online notepad claims it can't decrypt the text you save on its servers.
In addition, ProtectedText requires no registration, and the company promises not to track you. Nor does it display any ads, which do their own tracking. Lack of a business model aside, the new service appears to have a lot going for it.
You devise the text file's URL: protectedtext.com/[anyURLnotalreadytaken]. This gives you a second level of protection atop … Read more
Word had it that Google was planning to launch a subscription music service for YouTube this past summer, but the summer came and went and no such service surfaced. Now, rumors are flying that the service could be launching before year's end.
The possible music service will sound a lot like Spotify but will also come with videos, according to Billboard. And, like Pandora, it's said to have both a free version and a paid premium version that will give users unlimited access to albums and artists. Those with the unlimited access are also said to get ad-free … Read more
Free MKV to MP4 Converter makes quick work of any converting job and keeps all your video's quality to boot. It's a sleek and powerful application and doesn't even saddle your video with a watermark.
Despite the name, Free MKV to MP4 Converter can flip your files to the opposite format, as well. This program installs very quickly, but it sacrifices a stylish layout to keep the program trim and running smoothly. Thankfully, the layout is easy to figure out even though it's a little tough on the eyes. With just a click on the plus … Read more
Free MP4 Player is a fine video player, but it could do without all of the programs that come attached to the install. It doesn't make up for them with nifty features, either. However, if you just need a player that plays MP4 files (and no others), it will get the job done.
During the installation, this program tries to install four different add-on programs. If you don't decline them, they can take over your browser, home page, and many more parts of your computer. The program, itself, sports a nice all-black layout that barely includes any buttons … Read more
Free PC Cleaner offers to rid your computer of Registry errors, but it doesn't live up to its promises. It crashed almost every time during testing, after "finding" thousands of Registry errors in a matter of seconds. Since it made our antivirus suspicious during testing, it's even tougher to recommend over proven performers.
During installation, this program made our antivirus software pop up with a warning that said the program was a known adware problem. The program didn't prompt any additional warnings while it was running, though. Free PC Cleaner doesn't let you change … Read more
Free MKV to AVI Converter does a great job of changing your video's format while maintaining all of its quality. It's a smaller download that's easy to customize, so you can have a new video file in just a few minutes. It can also be a lifesaver if all of your video files are in MKV.
Free MKV to AVI Converter converts both ways, so it's useful for turning your files into MKV files, as well. Since the program is only 8.7MB, it shouldn't take very long to download, and there is no unwanted … Read more
