Open Any File On your PC with OpenFreely Application

We normally have to deal with various kinds of files on our computers and this means that we have to install numerous applications as well to open these files. Installing lot of applications also hampers the performance of our system as it is overloaded, moreover managing these applications is also quite a hassle. So a unified application or a platform that can open files of any type will be of great assistance and this is what I have lined up for you in this post.

What is Open Freely?

Open Freely

Simply stated, it is a standalone desktop application that allows users to open any kind of a media, document or a compressed file on their systems. Just simply install this application and you won’t require installing additional PDF viewers, image viewers or media players even. The application can open almost 100 types of file formats including image files, popular audio and video formats.

How to Use Open Freely?

You can open files with Open Freely either by directly associating files with it, via Open With option or through Open button that is located on the applications toolbar. When you open a file like an image, certain other options associated with that file type becomes active like rotating or cropping in case of an image file. Same goes for document files, they become editable the moment you open them with Open Freely application. This means that you can get rid of resource heavy Office softwares and suites. Open Freely also acts as a full-time media player for audio and video files.

Open Freely Screenshot

Though you have to install some codecs and certain other components like .Net Framework 4 for Open Freely to work. You might be wondering that installing too many components might overload the software but amazingly it is a very light application. Open Freely works fine on all the versions of Windows (XP/Vista/7).

LockLauncher: Launch Apps from your iPhone Lockscreen

There are times when you wanted to access an app on your iPhone and were delayed thanks to the lockscreen. Yeah, I love using Slide to Unlock, but sometimes it just makes me look bad. Suppose you’re having a race with an Android buddy to get to an App and see who opens it first, well, imagine how you’d feel if you lost. LockLauncher is an iPhone application, available in Cydia, that creates shortcuts to apps and places them right on your Lockscreen. Thus, you won’t have to slide to get to the app.

locklauncher

However, there is a problem here! You see, if there are apps on the lockscreen that anyone can access, then what’s the point of locking the screen?

This is where LockLauncher starts to get better, as it has a really cool way of accessing the apps placed on your lockscreen. Yet, when you click an app placed there, it won’t open right away. You will have to use the Slide to Unlock and the app will directly open, or rather it’ll already be open the moment you unlock. This will actually be of great help if you don’t want anyone to open the apps directly. That’s not the best part!

You can also launch the apps in a sequential order, meaning, select all the apps to open them back to back in order of selection. How cool is that? Select all the apps, unlock and you’ll be presented with the last selected app, press the home button and the next one and so on. Pretty useful if you’re a spontaneous person. Check out the video after the break by iDB to see LockLauncher in action.

This app can be downloaded from the Big Boss repo in Cydia for a very worth price of $0.99. You can place up to 5 apps and this will work best with iOS 4.2 and above. Do give it a try, and let us know what you think of it.
