The first words that jump into my mind when I think about the iTunes controller market are “over saturated.” That said, many of them skimp on the features, and lack a little design polish. Only a handful of them do their job well, and only a few of those do it with style.

CoverSutra by Sophiestication software is my personal favorite iTunes controller. I’m going to detail why I chose it over the other controllers out there, and highlight a few of the features that make it particularly unique.

There comes a time in the life of a designer where they seek methods to make their already beautiful design magnificent. The grid system is one of these such alternate methods, with many application developers, both online and offline, creating their own for a specific purpose. Two popular examples in the web field are the 960 grid system and the blueprint framework. Slammer takes this to a whole new level, adding in powerful tools to manipulate your grid system framework across all platforms.

Slammer, developed by Ringce, is an advanced layout tool that allows web and interface designers alike to create and tweak their layouts to align with a grid system, golden sections, harmonious sections and the fibonacci series.

TimeNet is a great solution for managing your business, sending invoices, and keeping track of clients. We reviewed the app earlier today, and I’m pleased to announce that four copies are available to win in today’s giveaway. Each license would normally be priced at $40, so it’s certainly worth taking a few minutes to enter!

As you may have heard, we’re planning a huge Christmas giveaway during December, in conjunction with our awesome partner site, Web.AppStorm. We have over $7,000 of Mac software and hardware to give away and really can’t wait to get started!

Entering to win a copy of TimeNet is easy. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post, letting us know one interesting way we can spread the word about our Christmas giveaway. We already have lots of ideas planned, but would love to hear your thoughts as well.

The competition will close on Friday, and we’ll be announcing the randomly chosen winners at the end of the week. Good luck, and I look forward to hearing what you come up with!

Today, I’ll be taking a look at TimeNet, a long-standing player in the field of time tracking and project management. The application allows you to take control of your clients and projects, easily send invoices, and stay on top of who owes you what.

It offers a fairly simple window-based interface, to show you only the information you need at any given time. This makes it pleasant to navigate, and slightly different from more complex competitors.
