After reviewing the delightful Kaleidoscope last week, I’m thrilled to let you all know that we have 5 full licenses to give away (worth €29 each). Kaleidoscope is a brilliant application for comparing files on your Mac, with a gorgeous interface design.
Entering is easy – all you need to do is answer two questions about how we run AppStorm! The competition will run for one week, and we’ll announce the randomly selected winners on the Tuesday, 22nd June.
Good luck, and thanks for reading AppStorm!
Window management in OS X has come a long way in recent years. Exposé gave us the ability to quickly view or hide our windows, Spaces gave us multiple environments to store and organize our windows, and most recently Dock Exposé has given us even more flexibility.
However, aside from a little AppleScripting, there is still no easy way to manage window sizes with the default OS X tools. Fortunately, a couple of third party options have popped up recently that handle this task with ease. Below we’ll take at look at both SizeUp and Divvy to see who reigns supreme as the window management king.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting AppChest. The developer describes AppChest as a smart new elegant way of storing your application licenses, as well as checking out today‘s latest and greatest Mac application deals.
Just drag your purchased apps to AppChest’s library and enter their license keys. No matter if it’s an email, pdf or text file containing the license, all attachments are automatically searched for useful information and auto-filled if possible.

WebSaver is simple in concept: it allows you to set a series of websites as your screen saver. You need only enter a few URLs and it will automatically load a fullscreen page and cycle between your various sites.
Today we’ll look at how to set it up, what some of the various options are and our ultimate impressions regarding the software.
Sometime last year, frustrated by the complexities of the majority of task-tracking and GTD apps on the Mac (I’m looking at you, OmniFocus), I spent some time exploring the software that’s already built into OS X. That is: To Dos and Notes in Mail.app, and those same To Dos in iCal.
I turned more of my information into Events in iCal. Deadlines and reminders, which in the past had been undated items linked to particular Projects in OmniFocus or Things, now became dated To Dos or Events.
This worked quite well for me, but I found that I wanted to have easier access to my calendar, without needing to keep iCal open all the time. I tried using Bjango’s excellent Organized), but in general I don’t use Dashboard, so an ordinary app suited me better.
I considered a few options, and the one I liked most was Second Gear Software’s Today. Read on for a walkthrough of the basic feature set.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Hidden. The developer describes Hidden as the cheapest and most advanced theft recovery solution for your Mac. The FBI reports that 97% of stolen computers are never recovered. Hidden will provide you with the information you need to help you recover your stolen computer.

Apple’s Safari browser remains an incredibly popular choice for Mac users everywhere, and is highly regarded for keeping up to date with the latest advances in web technology. Personally, I use and love it for the simplicity offered – it’s fast, lean, and feels like a clutter-free window to the web.
On the first day of WWDC, Apple announced the release of Safari 5, the latest incarnation of their browser. Today we’ll be taking a quick look at what’s new, and whether it’s worth getting excited about.
The interface is remarkably innovative and the app works beautifully. Today we’ll go over specifically what Kaleidoscope does, how to use it, and how it performed during the review process. If you’ve ever needed to compare two files, this is a review not to be missed!
Welcome to our coverage of the 2010 WWDC Keynote. We’ll be keeping you updated in real-time with news from across the web. You can see when things kick off in your time zone, so stay tuned for all our news and analysis.
