You have an iPod, an iPad, an Xbox, and a large media collection that you legally ripped from old DVDs. You discover that some are in an .m4v format, while others in a .avi (DivX) format. How would you easily convert that content to be able to watch it on all your various devices which require different formats? You might try downloading a free video conversion application, but most software that claims to easily convert videos is bloated and complex to use. Permute is different.
Permute makes it extremely easy to drag, drop, and convert your videos and music files. Drag a movie onto Permute and choose from the large selection of file formats. It includes formats for specific devices like an iPod, Xbox, and a PSP; as well as video formats like FLV, DivX, MPEG-1 and more. Permute makes it really easy to convert files and get you one step closer to enjoying your content. Let’s take a look at how it works!

In my search for the ideal money management application, I keep coming back to iBank. I reviewed Jumsoft Money here on Mac.AppStorm a few months back, and mentioned a few other options I’ve tried. I wouldn’t say it’s perfect – there are important features that I can’t use, and others that I don’t make use of – but on the whole it’s been stable and easy to work with, and I’ve not yet found an alternative that beats it.
We reviewed the last version here a while back, but now IGG Software has released a major update, so it’s time to revisit iBank and let you know how it works and what you get for your money.
With the Mac being the go-to choice for many web developers and readers of this blog, I wanted to mention a gorgeous application for making sure no billable hour goes undocumented – TrackRecord. Sure, there are tons of applications for freelancers to track their time spent on different programs (RescueTime), time spent working (Billings/OnTheJob), but none of these apps offer the ability to sync your time recorded to the popular web app Basecamp.
TrackRecord does just that, and today we’ll be taking a closer look at what it has to offer users of 37signals’ Basecamp web application. Read on to find out more!
When I first started this review of Afloat, I seriously wondered what on earth it was good for. An app that can let you keep windows stay on top of others or make them semi-transparent? Why? You see, I usually work on a 21″ iMac with an additional 24″ HD screen attached and – for work reasons – I am switching to a 27″ iMac. Screen estate really isn’t an issue for me!
But then I whipped out my 13″ Macbook I had an epiphany. All of a sudden, the ability to stack windows became useful. And then I discovered some more awesome features that I never suspected this little app could hold. Interested? Then keep on reading!
Just under a year ago, we published a review of Snowtape, an internet radio player for OS X. I was incredibly impressed with the polish of the interface, functionality, and the range of features available.

An essential tool for both web and software developers is a text editor. Text editors streamline the process of working with code, and save time by providing shortcuts for repetitive tasks. Text editors are also useful for other web users – for example, they are very handy for tidying up text that has been copied online, before pasting it into a blog or word document.
Fraise is an app that sits at the ‘basic’ end of the market for text editors, and performs these basic (and some more advanced) tasks well.
