After showcasing a selection of fantastic Mac setups earlier this week, we thought it would be an interesting idea to showcase where our readers work! We’d love for you to upload a photo of your desk, office, or computer, and we’ll feature them all in another roundup next week.

We’ve put together a simple form to send us your photo, and are really looking forward to seeing where you work. Just click through to upload your image!

We’ve collected the top five reviews, roundups and how-to articles from across the AppStorm network in March. 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.

Keeping a diary may not be half as popular as it used to be, but the habit of maintaining a record of events across your life is certainly not gone. It’s a great way to reminisce, and look back at where you’ve come from.

CallitADay is a great app from Expersis which lets you keep a daily diary on your Mac. This review will cover CallitADay’s winning features and flaws, and see what else is out there in the way of diary apps.

Imagine your files and folders sitting in a Finder window. It’s simple, and there’s no clutter. The only information you have about them is the name underneath. Of course we both know that there’s more to learn about each file. Much more!

Picture that all the “metadata” for a file or folder is engraved on it – unique – just like our finger prints. You’d need a magnifying glass to see it all. Let me introduce you to your magnifying glass: the “Get Info” Pane.

In this article I’ll introduce you to it, take you through a tour, and give some helpful hints along the way.

We spend an awful lot of time discussing applications and software on Mac.AppStorm, and today we wanted to take a slight departure to investigate a few physical Mac setups. After all, you need a relaxing and inspiring environment in which to use your computer!

Our roundup will take a look at 50 visually inspiring, gorgeous Mac setups. Some are very minimal, others are wonderfully cluttered. They may not all use the most powerful Mac hardware, but will hopefully give you some great ideas for improving your desk and workspace. Enjoy!

For a long time, I have been a very happy user of Microsoft Money. Since making the switch to a Mac, I’ve played the field, but still haven’t found a money management application that really meets my needs (or is fun enough to keep me coming back). There’s no going back – Microsoft announced last year that they would no longer be marketing Money, and they’re planning to stop support for it in January 2011.

The Mac programs I have tried include MoneyDance (very nice, and capable, but doesn’t really look like a Mac app), Cha-Ching (pretty, but simplistic and superficial), and iCompta (the quiet little guy at the back of the class, powerful and easy to use). The application I’ve used longest is iBank; having won several awards, it’s an excellent application. But I’m still not entirely satisfied.

I’ve known of Jumsoft’s Money for several years, and now and then given it a brief try, but never in much depth. Recently, I decided I really ought have a proper look at it – read on to see my conclusions.

Winner’s Details

Thanks to everyone who entered! I’m pleased to announce that the three lucky winners are:

  • Brad Bolman
  • Ricardo
  • David Ferguson

Your licenses will be on the way very soon.

After reviewing CoverScout earlier this week, we thought it would only be fair to give away a few licenses to our wonderful readers! Today’s competition is for three licenses of CoverScout, and three licenses of SongGenie (worth over $225!). These will be bundled together, so there will be three winners in total, each receiving both apps.

CoverScout is your one stop app for finding, applying, editing and printing all the album covers in your music library. SongGenie does a similar job, but focuses on all your iTunes metadata to ensure songs and albums are named and labelled correctly.

Entering the competition is easy, and just requires you to leave a comment on this post. We’ll randomly select the three winners in one week, on Friday 2nd April. Best of luck!
