Christmas Gift Guide Ideas: Nero 2015 Platinum - Review & Giveaway

Like probably many parents, I spend a lot of my time snapping photos and recording videos of my children. I love looking back at them and remembering how little they were.

Nero 2015 Platinum is a great little digital media suite for parents (or even teenagers - I know I took copious amounts of photographs with my friends as a teen!) Nero makes is easy to burn, rip, play, edit and share digital content anywhere and on ANY device which is perfect for me as I take photos on both my camera and iPhone. I never go anywhere without my smartphone and when I go to my parents house on a Saturday, I'm constantly showing them photos of what the kids have been up to that week. Using Nero means that I can share these with them with ease. You can also create high-quality DVDs and videos, something that I will definitely take advantage of over Christmas.

The features of Nero 2015 Platinum are:
  • Stream videos to any iOS or Android device
  • Nero AirBurn - Burn files straight from your Android & iOS device
  • Browse & tag photos and videos with places
  • New Nero launcher with instant access to the entire suite
  • Change the video-disc format on-the-fly when authoring
  • Hollywood-grade font styles and motion text effects for video
  • Instant access to your Nero cloud
  • Five new mobile apps to help you learn and master Nero 2015
  • Stream to and TV or media player with auto-transcoding
  • Even faster video converting and burning

I have found Nero surprisingly easy to use. The main screen has a wide selection of options to choose from. You can automatically import all media files from your PC and edit straight from the dashboard. You can also create your videos and burn CDs with ease. I am not the most tech savvy but even I found my way around it with no problems using the tutorial tab at the bottom. If you remember my post on Smartphone Mums last week, you'll see that Nero also have a BackItUp feature to save all of your precious memories. You are able to purchase photo products too such as photobooks, cards and calendars. There is no end! It is my new favourite program. You can even play Blu-Rays with it! 

App-wise you can download the following on both Android and iOS:
  • Nero AirBurn
  • Nero MediaHome Receiver App
  • Nero MediaHome WiFi Sync App
  • Nero Manual Apps (for tutorials and support) 
All of the above are free to download so you always have them at your fingertips. I would definitely recommend this software for anyone who takes a lot of photographs or videos or enjoys creating their own. I can't wait to organise all of my images of this coming Christmas! 

Nero 2015 Platinum retails at £89.99 but at the time of writing it is on offer at £79.99. You can find out more about Nero at their website
