Keeping up with an RSS reader can be overwhelming, especially if you have a lot of feeds that you read. Sometimes it feels like RSS readers are more of a burden than they are helpful. There are many reader apps that know this, and try to take a minimalist, relaxed stance – but few accomplish it.

Today we are reviewing perhaps the simplest reader we’ve ever seen. It’s called Fresh Feed and it has a very interesting take on reader apps. Is it for you?

Do you often find yourself switching back and forth between windows just to check back on a particular piece of information? Do you want to be reminded of something that you’d like to do by keeping an image of it handy? Well, this and other problems could be easily fixed with an app, right?

The app that we are reviewing today is called ScreenFloat, and it is meant to bring new functionality to screenshots by making them visible at all time. Keep on reading to find out more about it!

One of my favorite things about Mac OS X is the menu bar. More specifically, the fantastic apps that are developed to work with it. You can find a menu bar app for pretty much anything – from the weather to your Twitter feed! They make it super fast and easy to keep up with information without opening a full-blown app and leaving what you are doing.

Today we are reviewing FaceTab and MailTab, two apps from developer FIPLAB that pretty much let you run Facebook and Gmail from your menu bar without losing any of the features that you get on their web interfaces. Want to hear more about them?

I remember when I started playing guitar how useful a piece of software became to my learning. It was called Guitar Pro and it allowed you to download any sort of guitar tab to manipulate it and use it to learn the song. It had an amazing community behind it, and you could find a remarkable number of songs to download.

I’m not sure what happened to that app, as I haven’t heard much from the developers lately and I stopped using it quite a few years ago (it became too complicated and annoying to use).

The other day, as I was browsing for apps like Guitar Pro, I found an amazing piece of software on the App Store called Capo. It is much different than Guitar Pro – and it might even be better.

Want to find out why? Keep reading!

We all remember journals as a childhood thing. They are usually identified with learning to write and it’s something that most adults aren’t used to doing. Journaling, however, is a great way to keep track of the stages of your life and the important events you go through.

It is always nice to go back in your journal and recall feelings, people and events from the past. It’s something that you can use to show your children your travels and adventures. But keeping a physical paper diary has become fairly inadequate, now that we have pretty much everything in digital form.

The app that we are reviewing today is called Day One and it does a great job at helping you keep a journal in the most simplistic manner in your Mac. Read on to find more about it!

Alarm clock apps are a difficult topic, as some people are averse to paying for an app that does something that their cellphones and clocks do. While I don’t quite use alarm apps on an everyday basis, I do find them attractive and convenient because they put in your hands a bunch of settings and options that regular alarm clocks don’t have.

Also, they have access to your complete music library, so you can wake up every day to your latest album or playlist. Today we are presenting an alarm clock app that goes along with your Mac perfectly, as it is very pretty, and remarkably simple to use. It’s called Aurora.

We’ve taken a look at various RSS reader solutions in the past, but quite a bit has changed over the past year or two. Most of the apps that we are showing you here are pretty new to the market (and some are not even yet out of beta!)

The RSS reader market has been getting bigger, and Google Reader has established its position as the de facto standard for syncing and managing feeds. But are you tired of using Google Reader’s web interface?

Today we’ll be featuring some of our favorite picks for the best RSS desktop apps that work with Google Reader.

The market for billing and payment apps is crowded with heavy, complex and hard to understand apps. It’s impressive how difficult app developers can make something as easy as reminding you of your due payments!

Don’t worry, though. If you are looking for an app that is lighter, faster and simpler, and still does a great job at keeping up with your bills, we have a great option for you.

It’s called Chronicle Mini and is created by the same people behind the excellent Chronicle. Read on to find out more!

Today we’ll be reviewing quite an unusual app. Unlike most software that we review, this application is made for people who don’t have much contact with Mac apps – or even Macs at all. It’s a simple video tutorial app that can show you how to use a Mac in just a few hours through short informative and interactive videos.

Called Learn The Switch To Mac, it’s available on the App Store for just $1 at the time of writing. Are you a recent Mac switcher? Are you having problems getting around in your new computer? This app will show you the way. Keep on reading to find out more about it.

Do you still buy and use CD’s? Have you moved your collection of CD’s into your iTunes library? If you have, then surely you have realized what a time consuming task it is to tag and update all of the songs and albums that you have with the correct information.

When I first transferred all my CD’s to my iTunes library, I had to manually label everything and put the right information in every album that I transferred to my computer. It took me a good week from start to finish.

Luckily, we now have amazing apps like Tagalicious that can do all this tedious work for you, and they even do a better job than you. Interested? Read on to find more about Tagalicious.
