We’d like to say thank you to this month’s AppStorm sponsors, and the great software they create! If you’re interested in advertising, you can order a slot through BuySellAds.

LittleSnapper

Take a look at LittleSnapper from Realmac Software, It’s an awesomely powerful new app to snap, annotate and share screenshots.

Billings

Billings’ simple workflow and intuitive interface makes quoting, invoicing, and time tracking effortless. Elegantly designed invoices ensure you reflect a professional image when it counts the most – asking for payment. Packed with 30 professionally designed invoice templates, you’ll be ready to bill, right out of the box. Staying on top of client accounts is easy – quickly identify overdue clients and send them a statement with the click of a button. Track partial payments, taxes, and retainers collected, then run reports to see how your business is doing.

Pixelmator

Pixelmator, the beautifully designed, easy-to-use, fast and powerful image editor for Mac OS X has everything you need to create, edit and enhance your images.

We’re running a bumper competition this week, with two copies of Tweetie and one DevonThink Pro license up for grabs. These are two stunning applications, with a total value of over $120.

We’ve recently reviewed DevonThink Pro, finding it to offer an excellent solution for storing and organizing documents. It also provides a way to create a paper-free office system; a goal many of us are looking to achieve! Our Tweetie review found it to be a thoroughly well designed, fully functional Twitter client for the Mac.

Entering is simple. All you need to do is:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  2. Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link!

The competition will run for one week, and we’ll randomly select three winners on Wednesday 6th May. Good luck!

Thank you to everyone who entered our Espionage competition. The results are in, and I’m pleased to announce that the winners are as follows.

Comment Winners

Twitter Riddle Winner

We posted a riddle on Twitter this week, which was correctly answered by @visualpro in the blink of an eye.

Congratulations, and I hope you enjoy encrypting away! Hot on the heels of this contest, we’re running another bumper giveaway of Tweetie and DevonThink Pro. This will be getting started in the next couple of days so stay tuned!

It’s competition time again, and this week we have three licenses for Espionage up for grabs. Espionage is a data encryption app for OS X, which we recently reviewed. If you don’t want the system wide performance hit of FileVault but do have the odd application/folder to encrypt, it’s a great solution.

As promised, we have three copies to give away. All you need to do is:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  2. Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link

Two comments will be selected randomly as winners on the 27th April. The third copy will be given away at some point this week via Twitter (we have a riddle planned!). To be in with a chance of winning, be sure to follow us!

Best of luck, and as with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

We regularly feature commercial software on AppStorm, so decided it was time to bring a roundup of completely free (and often open source) apps to your attention. If you’re on a budget, you’ll be pleased to know that a variety of great OS X software is available free.

Applications are broken down into various categories, with each one containing a ‘featured’ app and several other free solutions. I hope you find something useful, and do let me know if your favorite freeware app isn’t on the list!

Thank you to everyone who entered our recent MarsEdit competition. I’m pleased to say that the results are in! If you haven’t used MarsEdit before, be sure to check out our review. It’s a great desktop blogging app for OS X.

Three copies of MarsEdit were up for grabs, with two going to randomly selected commenters, and one going to a random Twitter follower (selected via TwitRand). Here are the lucky three winners:

Kat, via comment:

I run several blogs, one of which is a travel information blog about a province where I live. It’s a pretty great place, and has everything from awesome beaches, mountains to scale and art centers. I put alot of info in just one post, and editing them on the blog’s wysiwyg or on a word processor isn’t helping much. MarsEdit could help me managing this blog.

Mads Thygesen, via comment:

Would really like this app :-) Im still new to to Mac and OSX, and this would be the perfect app to manage my blog.

Congratulations to all the winners – you’ll be contacted shortly. If you didn’t win this time, don’t despair. We’ll be kicking off another competition to win Espionage early next week. To make sure you don’t miss out, feel free to follow us on Twitter, or subscribe to the RSS feed.
