EmailTray – cool free email program controls those message overload blues [Freeware]

Riddle me this: What’s the single most useful, and at the same time most maddening, thing in the whole world? No, not hot wet-wipes, we’re talking email. It’s crucial to our lives and yet a massive burden too. Over the years we’ve tried numerous ways to improve things, including email abstinence (doesn’t work), filters, rigid routines and worse, and failed to make even a tiny dent in our message overload.

Utter! – so long Siri, this is what real smartphone voice control looks like [Freeware]

It’s a funny thing, software. Sometimes it’s not the prettiest of products which work the best, nor even the ones with the best marketing, but instead it’s a surprise coming out of left field, which manages to deliver amazing functionality with no fancy interface and zero marketing.

Pressure Net – let your phone improve the world’s weather forecasts [Freeware]

Nowadays many of the latest smartphones come with an interesting new feature that few people know about. Embedded inside the handsets of products from companies like Samsung and Motorola are barometers, small devices which register atmospheric pressure readings. Why? Well according to the guys at Google, they are there to help your phone get a quicker GPS fix.

nPointer – control your PC with a wave of the hand like Tom Cruise…almost [Freeware]

There’s currently a lot of talk about the upcoming revolution in computer control. Voice recognition, gestures, touch and different types of input devices are all being trotted out to see if any stick.

Which family just has one phone nowadays? None. Most families have two or three of different types, brands, platforms, and there’s different data on all of them, which can be crucially important. Now every smartphone maker offers their own brand of backup software, and there are tons of 3rd party tools out there, but the fact is that keeping it all coordinated is very difficult, unless you want to spend your leisure time keeping track of all the options.

PushBullet – instantly move stuff from your computer browser to your Android phone [Freeware]

Once you start using a smartphone in earnest, you quickly discover that the more you connect it with your computer, the more useful it becomes. I constantly find myself checking traffic on the laptop maps before leaving, or hastily scribbling down an address or a postcode for the Google Navigation when I get into the car. But what I really needed is a quick and easy way to send from the computer to my phone without any intervening hassles.
