If you're a Twitter power user, TweetDeck is a must have application on your hard drive. Created by London-based developer Iain Dodsworth, TweetDeck extends the functionality of Twitter and even expands it in entirely new directions.
The TweetDeck website describes the program's purpose as "[aiming] to evolve the existing functionality of Twitter by taking an abundance of information i.e twitter feeds, and breaking it down into more manageable bite sized pieces." TweetDeck does that, and more.Read more...
We wish you, our readers, a very nice holiday season. Enjoy your time with the family and all the good food. We will do the same.
For the next few days there won't be any new reviews, simply because I am away from the computer and enjoy a bit of free time. I expect to resume posting either next week or in the new year. Until then…Read more...
If you are like me, you like your system to be lean and mean. Empty the Trash right after throwing something in. Keeping folders in order, cleaning out unnecessary baggage when you get the chance. Well, I do that all the time. Deleting applications with AppZapper, slimming my software with xSlimmer. You could say, that I have a very clean system. Still, when I tried out MacCleanse from Koingo Software, I managed to get nearly 1GB of my precious drive space back. Not too shabby.Read more...
Today I am going to talk about a little application that is very dear to me. In fact I use it several dozen times a day. So please excuse me, if I sound less objective, because I have a little man crush on 1Password by Agile Web Solutions.
So… 1Password. As the name already tells you, it is a password manager. You know, it manages your dozens of passwords. You do have different passwords for all your accounts, right? If not, it is time you start now. In this day and age it is vital, that your accounts are reasonably well protected of hackers and phishers.Read more...
As I have written in a previous post, several developers agreed to help me out when I launched the blog. They provided me with giveaway licenses for several of their popular products. One of these developers is Koingo Software. They have a whole array of different products, which we will be looking at in the coming weeks. The first application I want to talk about today is called MacPilot.Read more...
I just wanted to give a little thank you to some very supportive developers. The guys at Realmac Software, Mariner Software, Koingo Software and Agile Web Solutions were nice enough to provide me with giveaway licenses for a lot of their products. I will be reviewing these products in the coming articles (except LittleSnapper, which I already did in my first review) and each review will be accompanied by the according giveaway license.
I think it is a great feat of the Mac software community to support the small guy. I don't have a big name and the blog was not even there when I asked those developers about their support. Nevertheless, these guys showed great enthusiasm and were eager to help me out. Some of them going overboard and providing me with extra licenses that I didn't even ask for.
So to make things short. Thank you guys for your support. I greatly appreciate it.Read more...
Are you the sort of guy who likes to keep images in order? Maybe it would be good to have a nice way to organize websites and screenshots? Despair not! LittleSnapper by Realmac Software has been created for exactly this purpose.
Maybe you have used Skitch
before or just did plain old screenshots
via Grab.app, Preview.app or shortcuts. LittleSnapper does the
same and more. It offers a convenient way to organize your precious
screenshots. With an interface quite similar to iPhoto, you can
create plain folders, Smart Folders and Collections. Of course,
LittleSnitch LittleSnapper also offers tags and conveniently
saves the URL when creating snapshots from a web page. In fact,
LittleSnitch LittleSnapper works quite well when creating
web snaps (as they are called by Realmac Software) and even comes
with its own web service that let's you easily share your images
with the world.
