Having recently reviewed the popular time tracking and invoicing tool Billings, we have yet another giveaway for you to grab a free copy for yourself. Billings is an excellent tool for managing clients, projects and the time you spend on particular pieces of work.

We’ve giving away two copies in two different ways:

  • Copy 1: This will be awarded randomly to one of our Twitter followers – just make sure you follow us to be in with a chance of winning.
  • Copy 2: Leave a comment on this post stating why you’d love a copy of Billings – one will be randomly selected as a winner.

You’re welcome to enter through both methods (following us on Twitter and leaving a comment), but you can only win one copy. Do both to double your chances of winning!

The competition will run for one week, and the winning follower and comment will be chosen at random on the 11th March 2009. As with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

Best of luck, and tell your friends!

Thank you to all those who entered our LittleSnapper competition – I’ve been thoroughly entertained to see all your desktops, and have discovered a bunch of new applications in the process. I was particularly fascinated by all your wonderful desktop wallpapers – very creative!

Here are a few that I particularly liked:

I’ve chosen one comment at random, and am pleased to announce that the winner is:

Tinu Cleatus with this wooden and minimalist desktop.

Congratulations and I hope you enjoy snapping away! Sorry to all of you who didn’t win this time, but there’s a great competition planned for Billings later this week, with two licenses on offer. Stay tuned via Twitter or RSS for more info!

Apple have just released a new version of Safari. It brings a whole host of improvements including noticeable speed enhancements, new ways to browse and search sites, and a range of interface changes. A few new features to look out for are:

  • Very noticeable speed improvements
  • Top Sites – a way to browse your most commonly frequented sites
  • Cover Flow implementation throughout the browser
  • Tabs are now placed at the top of the window (akin to Google Chrome)

A full list of changes has been posted on the what’s new page. I’m really pleased with the speed improvements, and feel that it’s a worthy Version 4 release. Head over to the download page and let me know what you think!

After recently reviewing LittleSnapper we’ve managed to snag a copy to give away to our loyal readers. If you aren’t familiar with the app, a good place to start is my review. Essentially, LittleSnapper is:

  • A powerful screenshot and website snapper
  • A great way to annotate images
  • A place to tag and organize inspirational sites and graphics
  • An easy way to share screenshots online

Entering is really simple – all you need to do is take a screenshot of your desktop, upload it to anywhere on the web (MobileMe, Flickr, TwitPic etc) and post a link in the comments below. I’m always fascinated to see the desktops of other Mac users, and it should make a really interesting discussion.

The competition will run for one week, and the winning comment will be chosen at random on the 2nd March 2009. As with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato. Only one entry per person please!

Good luck, and I look forward to taking a look at your desktop!

Thank you to all those who entered the WriteRoom competition – I’ve received a steady stream of entries via Twitter all week and have been kept thoroughly entertained with your messages! There were a number of great tweets, ranging from downright groveling to delightfully witty.

Read on for a selection of my favorite entries, along with the winning tweet.

WriteRoom is a great tool for distraction free writing and editing. Our review, posted a few days ago showcased the major features along with my comments on the application. I’m delighted to announce that we’re giving away a copy of WriteRoom, kindly donated by Hog Bay Software. The competition will be run via Twitter, and entering is simple:

  1. Sign up for a Twitter account if you haven’t already
  2. Follow AppStorm (macappstorm)
  3. Tell us (via Twitter) why you’d like to win WriteRoom. Your tweet should take the form: @macappstorm I want to win WriteRoom because… – The funnier the better!

The competition will run for one week, and the winner will be chosen based on which tweet we found to be the funniest and most convincing. The closing date is the 20th February 2009. As with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

Good luck, and if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment!
