Back to school with Softonic

Yes, it’s that time of year again: as summer draws to a close (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least), millions of students prepare for their return to full-time education. I’ll admit that I never looked forward to the arrival of September – but then I didn’t have Nick’s excellent blog post about the best software to take to college. He’s packed a lot in there, from geography and math apps to the essential CollegeBAR – probably the best cocktail software in the world.

One of the things I noticed most about my college days was just how much free time I suddenly had. Naturally, this vacuum had to be filled with something other than sleep so like most students, I turned to computer games. One game in particular, actually: SimGolf. Cyril thoughtfully included this colossus in his post about the best golf games ever – and rightly so.

For those not quite so into pitch ‘n’ putt, Elena reviewed the demo for the latest edition of the massive Medal of Honor franchise, ‘Airborne’. It’s a visually stunning game, with levels of realism and adrenaline pretty much unrivalled. This is guaranteed to be one of the games of the year, so get some practice in early!

For mobile phone owners, we’ve got good news. James and Tony had a look at a few applications which can help you secure your phone from viruses, and even deactivate it if stolen. Don’t leave home without it.

That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend – and to those of you about to start college: good luck! Those of you returning, please take it easy on the newbies.
