Bzzt! Image Editor Pro now available

Bzzt! Image Editor Pro is now available to all Pro Club members.

The pro edition includes a watermarking tool that can apply your image watermark to entire folders full of photos at once. You can customize the watermark location, repetition, and opacity.

Bzzt! Pro will also update automatically, so you’ll no longer need to visit SingularLabs whenever a new version becomes available.

Pro Club members can download Bzzt! Image Editor Pro from the Download Hub.

How to use System Ninja to find empty folders

One of System Ninja‘s lesser known features lets you scan a directory in search of empty folders. Excessive folders don’t cause any performance degradation or take up any space, but having thousands of unnecessary folders scattered across your system can become annoying.

It’s unlikely you will want to scan an entire hard drive for empty folder, so first you should configure System Ninja to scan directories instead of drives. Click on the arrow on the right-hand side of the ‘Scan For Junk‘ button and select Scan Folder.

Remembr 0.7

Remembr 0.7 is now available! This version includes a handful of fixes and improvements for our non-English-speaking users, and brings a significant redesign of the user interface.

The existing design was starting to look a little dated, especially on Windows 10 in which Microsoft have put greater emphasis on whitespace. The new design is both cleaner and lighter. We’ve also changed the colour scheme to match SingularLabs’ brand colors of orange, charcoal and light gray.

Remembr 0.7 includes the following changes:

  • Redesigned the user interface
  • Added automatic language detection
  • Fixed several display issues for our non-English-speaking users
  • Updated Russian localization

You can download the latest version from the Remembr product page.

Results of the SingularLabs product survey

Several months ago we opened a survey to gather feedback on our products and to help make a few decisions. I’d like to share the results of that survey with you and respond to a handful of the comments made.

Question 1: Should we offer an installer for CCEnhancer?

The result of this first question came as a bit of a surprise. Only one person had ever suggested offering an install-able edition CCEnhancer, so we assumed there was very little demand for such a thing. Following this result, we will be offering an installer with all future CCEnhancer releases.

Question 2: Should System Ninja clean beta versions of web browsers?

Neither option was able to attain a majority of votes, so we’re going to maintain the status quo. System Ninja will only clean stable versions of web browsers, but continue to allow users to manually add beta versions with the functions available under Options → Scan Inclusions.

Question 3: Do you think JavaRa still has value and that development should re-commence?

No surprises here. JavaRa has been deprecated for a couple of years now and the current JRE installer seems to be doing a solid job removing old versions. Development will not re-commence.

General Feedback

There were two topics raised several time in the general feedback section that I’d like to address.

Offer lifetime licenses
This won’t happen. Offering free support and updates into perpetuity is not a sustainable business model. Our subscription model provides us with a consistent flow of revenue so we can continue to invest in product improvements and sustain our support efforts.

Bring back System Ninja Portable
The security improvements in Windows 10 made it necessary to unblock portable executable files or programs contained in .zip files. We tried providing instructions, but a substantial number of users didn’t read or understand them and this became a significant support burden. We made the decision to only offer portable System Ninja to Pro Club members.

Free users can still roll their own portable System Ninja edition by copying all of the files in C:\Program Files (x86)\System Ninja to a new folder and deleting the uninstaller’s executables.

CCEnhancer 4.5

CCEnhancer 4.5 is CCEnhancer’s first significant update in (almost exactly) three years. We’ve updated the user interface, fixed lots of bugs, added some handy features, and performed some necessary security hardening.

  • Updated the program icon
  • All downloads now performed securely over HTTPS*
  • Added auto-detection of language on first run
  • Improved the error messages when a download issue occurs
  • The ad now opens System Ninja if it’s already installed
  • Added an update check mechanism for the program
  • Added duplicate entry detection to the winapp2.ini debug tool
  • “Delete Custom Rules” tool now provides feedback when successful
  • The “Download” button color now matches CCleaner™

The latest version of CCEnhancer can be downloaded from its usual download page.

System Requirements Changes

CCEnhancer now requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or newer (instead of 3.5) to be installed. This change is to maintain consistency with other SingularLabs products.

*Users running outdated operating systems that don’t support Server Name Indication (SNI), such as Windows XP, may need to use the ‘Use alternative download URL‘ option from the Advanced menu.
