Today we’re kicking off a new competition to win a copy of Radium. We recently reviewed Radium, and were really impressed. It’s simple, functional, and an absolutely fantastic way to listen to the radio on your Mac!
We have nine licenses up for grabs, and entering is really simple. All you need to do is:
- Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
- Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link!
The competition will run for one week, and we’ll announce the winners on the Friday, 11th June. Good luck, and enjoy your weekend!
Windows users have had the luxury of using an application like GoodSync for years, giving them the ability to sync or backup important folders both over a local network or even remotely.
Siber Systems has finally developed a Mac version of GoodSync and, though it’s not as feature-rich as its Windows counterpart, it still does an admirable job of ensuring that your folders and files are safely copied and archived.
The bonus is that it can do this between various directories, be they two computers (Windows or Mac) or a computer with an external storage device, FTP, WebDav or another server. Plus, GoodSync doesn’t need to be installed on any of the computers you’re tapping into. Let’s take a look at how it works.
If sitting in front of two turntables and a microphone is your idea of the perfect way to spend a Friday night, this roundup is for you.
We’ve gathered 20 applications that allow both professional and wannabe disc jockeys to scratch, mix and loop their way into musical bliss. Whether you’re looking for fully loaded and professional or free and fun, there’s an below app that will suit your needs.
We’ve collected the top five reviews, roundups and how-to articles from across the AppStorm network in April. Whether you’re interested in Mac, iPhone, or Web apps, there’s bound to be something you didn’t spot over the course of the month.
Now would be a good time to explore a part of the AppStorm Network you’ve never seen before! Don’t forget, you can always keep track of the whole network via the AppStorm Dashboard.
Our sister site, iPhone.AppStorm, reviewed the iPhone version of Soulver back in March this year. When I read that piece, I was really taken with the app, though I didn’t think that I needed a calculator much in my day-to-day life. I also read the excellent piece by Marco Arment that’s linked in a note to the review, and that got me fascinated by the application’s user interface, and the subtly disruptive things it does with familiar expectations for how a calculator looks and works. So I took myself over to the App Store and paid my money.
And then I realised that, actually, I use a calculator just about every day at work – a grey little handheld number that’s always disappearing onto my colleague Mary’s desk. I lose track of the number of times I’ve had to re-enter a column of numbers to check I’d got them right, and the number of times my sum turned out different on each of two or three checks.
So I started using my iPhone and Soulver for doing these calculations, and found the ability to check and refer back to previous lines invaluable.
I knew that Soulver began life as a desktop app (actually, quite a long time ago: you can read more about the history of the app in this 2006 press release), so I had to download that and see if it was as good as the iPhone app. I got in touch with the developer, and learned that they were soon to release a new version, Soulver 2. Well, that happy day has come, and here’s a quick walkthrough…
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting MovingPhotos3D. The developer describes MovingPhotos3D as being able to effortlessly send your photos flying around in three dimensions. You can see hundreds of pictures form cities, spheres, and other shapes.

Pagico Professional is a task management application that is much more than a simple GTD app. In contrast to the trendy to do applications that have arisen lately that purposely stay lean on features, Pagico targets professionals with complicated workflows by piling on the possibilities and integration options.
Today we’ll go over how to use Pagico’s major features as well as whether or not we think it’s worth your time to download and try for yourself.
We’d like to say a big thank you to this month’s Mac.AppStorm sponsors, and the great software they create! If you’re interested in advertising, you can order a slot through BuySellAds.

I’m a firm believer in the benefits of journalling and writing every day. Julia Cameron’s book, “The Artist’s Way” has been very significant in my life, and after reading it for the first time, I kept up the central practice she recommends – of writing three pages first thing every morning – almost every day for the following five years. For the past few months, I’ve fallen out of the habit, but I know I will pick it up again in time, and that I will most likely continue to keep a journal of some kind for the rest of my life.
I’ve always preferred pen or pencil on paper for this kind of writing, but I thought it might be time to have a go with one of the several journaling apps available for the Mac. I’ve gone straight to Mémoires, an app produced by Coding Robots, whose YouTube viewer, Cathodique, we included in our piece on improving YouTube.
Like Cathodique, Mémoires is a well-focused application: it does one thing, with minimal fuss or distraction. And yet it does that single thing well enough that it makes one take note. Join us after the jump for a quick walkthrough of Mémoires’ main features.
