Since we launched Mac.AppStorm early this year it’s been growing really rapidly and rapidly getting a reputation as the leading blog on Mac Apps. This is in no small part due to our very talented editor David Appleyard who has steered this blog from strength to strength. With Mac.AppStorm doing so well, we’ve decided it’s time to branch out into another great area of apps – the Web! Meet Web.AppStorm. (more…)
How many of you seriously organize and continue to bookmark the many different websites you go to? For a long time now, Google has been my bookmark system of choice- I would always be able to find a site I recently visited through my search history or just poke around until I found it through the search engine. This system, however, is not optimal and often left me frustrated and without the information I was looking for.
This is where Pukka is a solution to consider. Pukka, from Code Sorcery Workshop, is a Delicious bookmark integration tool for your Mac. Simply put, it allows you to quickly and easily save websites for later, mark them for easy searching, and most importantly – find the site again. In this review, I will cover the core features of Pukka, while comparing it to a couple free alternatives.
Whilst many blogging platforms come with excellent web-based administration interfaces, a variety of desktop tools can make the experience far more enjoyable. With a useful set of applications installed, managing a blog is a far simpler and more natural experience.
Today we’ll be looking at 60 applications for desktop blogging and tweeting, formatting images for your posts, recording screencasts, utilizing social media, communicating with other bloggers, and keeping track of statistics.
iTunes is great. It does everything you’d ever need from a media player. However, sometimes everything is just too much. Having so many features can be a little more of a drag on your computer’s processing power, and makes the app cumbersome and difficult to use.
This is where Ecoute comes in… Developed by PixiApps, It’s a lightweight, fast, and simple standalone application for playing your iTunes library without iTunes! I love iTunes, and I was skeptical that I could be tempted by something offering less features for a small price, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. This review will offer an overview of what you can do with this excellent piece software.
I’d like to hear your thoughts on the MacTastik comic – is it something you have a good laugh at each week, or would you prefer the site focuses solely on Mac app information?

It’s been a hectic 3 days for us here at Envato. We’ve had a massively successful Birthday Bundle (over 5,000 sales in 3 days), lots of giveaways, a fantastic Tuts+ tutorial set up for free download and our first video interview. Here in the office we’ve also been celebrating today with a big lunch and lots of network gaming! With the birthday all wrapped up now though I thought I’d give you a very quick preview of what’s coming up in September…
Today we’re concluding our three part media centre series by taking a look at the different remote control options available. Possibilities explored will include hardware remotes, iPhone/iPod touch applications, and the option of using VLC to interact with your Mac desktop directly.

One of the best things about working here at Envato is that we have an awesome team of people building, managing, writing, reviewing and working on our sites. Yep, things have come a long way since the early days when there was just a few of us trying to do everything!
Recently our awesome Tuts+ interviewer Emil asked if I minded being video interviewed with some questions put forward by the Psdtuts+ readers. Since no-one really wants to see my enormous head on screen for too long a period of time, I asked my lovely wife and partner in crime Cyan if she’d be in on the interview and we thought we’d put up the video to help celebrate 3 years of Envato.
Today we’re continuing our series on setting up a Mac Media Centre, taking a look at the different software options available for watching TV shows, movies, music and photos on your television. Applications covered include Plex, Boxee, Hulu, Front Row, iTheater, CenterStage and MediaCentral.
