The new year is here, and with it should come a ton of exciting new apps and app updates. A number of our favorite app developers have already announced major updates coming this year. Throw in the countless new apps that will come out, and perhaps an as-yet-unannounced app upgrade from Apple or Adobe, and it should be yet another exciting year for apps on the Mac.

Here’s some of the apps we’re most excited about in 2013.

The holidays have come and passed and here we are again with those trusty deals for the week. You would think that cheap prices didn’t live through the end of the winter holidays, but they have. We’ve got some utilities, text editors, and music players waiting for you after the break. (more…)

Ondesoft Screen Capture

Ondesoft Screen Capture lets you use a number of tools to capture anything on your screen. You can capture scrolling areas, individual items, shapes, and more, and then you can edit the screenshots with its built-in editor. You can organize all of your screenshots to keep up with everything you’ve captured, or export your shots in all the standard image formats you could expect. It’s the screenshot tool that can handle everything in one package.

Pixelmator

Pixelmator is easily one of the best photo editors on the App Store. It keeps getting better, with new updates that added soft proofing, new effects and an effects browser, alignment guides, iCloud support, and more! Best of all, the latest updated added CMYK support to Pixelmator, so you can now work in CMYK colors and print your pictures while making sure they’ll look the same on everything: your computer, your mobile devices, and in print. It even now has advanced PSD support so you’ll be able to work even better with Photoshop files.

Ondesoft Audio Recorder

If you’ve ever wished you could record audio directly from your Mac apps, Ondesoft Audio Recorder is the app you need. From recording a Skype conversation to saving a broadcast from your favorite internet radio, you can record anything you hear on your computer with this app. It can grab the audio from any of your apps and record it in the formats you want, individually, at the same time. You can even plug in a mic and record your own audio with all the audio controls you want.

And a special thanks to you, our Mac.AppStorm.net readers, for reading and sharing our articles. We couldn’t do it without you!

There’s so many Mac apps these days, it’s impossibly to use all of them. Odds are your Launchpad is filled with apps that you seldom or never use anymore. From apps you might have picked up while they were free or on sale to apps that you replaced with an alternate, it’s rather easy to quit using apps without even really thinking about it.

I’ve personally quit using several apps this year. Once Tweetbot for Mac came out, I pretty much quit using all other Twitter apps on the Mac, and only use Tweetbot online occasionally to schedule tweets. I’ve also quit using almost every other writing app I have installed other than iA Writer and Sublime Text, because no matter how many I try out I always come back to those two for writing and coding, respectively. Then, I quit using the Read Later for Mac app with Instapaper when Pocket for Mac was released, and comically that made me switch the web and iOS app I was using for web reading as well.

How about you? What apps have you quit using this year? This time, you’ll have to leave a comment to let us know!

After being featured on TechCrunch as well as being tweeted by our fellow sister site MacTuts, it seems that Inky has enjoyed an unexpected surge of interest this week, despite having been around since May of this year. The interest was generated after a random post on Hacker News generated a fair bit of chatter among users and gave the app a fair bit of attention – something that the Maryland-based developers certainly weren’t expecting as they’ve never really actively sought out press coverage before.

Inky promises to reinvent email – and this time it’s for good (none of those wishy-washy promises like from other companies) – and any company or software product that promises that instantly grabs my attention. So I thought it worth to take a quick look at Inky (it’s currently in the public beta stage at the moment) to see what all the fuss is about.
