Every week, we share a number of downloads for all platforms to help you get things done. Here were the top downloads from this week.
Every year we put together a list of our Lifehacker App packs for each operating system. In the spirit of those lists we figured it was time to put together a list for students getting ready for school. Whether you’re on Windows, Mac, Android, or iPhone, we’ve got you covered.
Your smartphone and tablet are surprisingly good pieces of hardware for making music. Because of that, you have a ton of choices for apps, but many of them are terrible. Let’s make a list of the best ones.
Whether you’re an avid player who’s been in the game for years, or curious to see what Dungeons & Dragons is all about, Wizards of the Coast is offering everything you need to start playing for free.
Windows/Mac/Linux: Calibre, one of the best free ebook managers out there (and a great tool for removing DRM), released a big update this week. Calibre 2.0 includes a new editor function, comparison tool, support for Android phones on OS X, and more.
iOS: Time lapse videos are great, but they can be hard to make. Not only are they time consuming, but you need to stabilize your camera and stitch photos into a video. Hyperlapse simplifies the whole process.
Android: Hop in your wayback machine. Google has updated its already-sweet News and Weather widget and released it to the Play Store. Yes, the one that was last seen with the Galaxy Nexus.
Mac: Pomodoro timers are easy enough to find, but if you’re looking for something that’s incredibly simple and free, Pomodoro One does the job.
Android: The Google Now Launcher’s spiffiest feature is that you can swipe to the left to access Google Now. Blur Launcher (from the makers of Talon for Twitter and EvolveSMS) takes it a step further by letting you swipe to access other apps from the home screen.
Bittorrent Sync may not be the perfect Dropbox replacement, but it is pretty great. Today it got a lot better. In addition to a new interface, users can now share quick links to your folders with anyone.
iPhone: Work-life balance is an important part of healthy living, but it’s difficult sometimes to know exactly how much time you’re spending at work. Balance uses data from Moves to visualize where you’re spending your time.
