There are enough apps in the Windows Store to manage your multimedia collection, but CyberLink thinks there’s room for just one more and that’s why it has released the new ASUS PowerDirector app. Read below for more details about it

The title of the application has been changed from “PowerDirector” to Asus PowerDirector as Asus is probably sponsoring the launch. We’ve seen the same thing happen with the official Windows 10, 8.1 app of the musical store 7digital. The Asus branding is also present inside the app itself. CyberLink has previously released the official “PowerDirector Mobile” app, but it is available at $15, and the new Asus PowerDirector app seems to be identical, just that you can download it completely free. We don’t know whether this app is designed for Asus devices only or if it’s made free thanks to Asus, but you should go ahead and download it while it doesn’t become paid.

  • Just tried this out. It’s like movie moments but with a couple of extras thrown in. You can trim a video, put a picture slideshow to music, add a theme to the start and finish and that’s really about it. Too bad, for a moment there I was excited about this one. We really need a good video editor.
