Throughout the day we’re all bombarded by tons of information and things that want to call for our attention. Some you might not care much about, but there’s also those few things you run into that you might want to remember to look up later. That’s why note-taking apps (like Evernote) and to-do apps (like Wunderlist) work, because they let you quickly write down everything you’re thinking about without interrupting what you’re doing.
However, it’s hard to keep up with those reminders and notes after you’ve taken them, and few apps can help you do anything other than store them. But what if we told you about an app that does all the research for you from all those notes you gather through the day? Sounds interesting, right? That’s what Dunno claims to do.
As always every Wednesday, here are our weekly picks of the best (and free) deals on the App Store for this week.
As we sit on the precipice of another generation of new Macs, I thought it would be fun to take a look back. It’s time to throw open the closets, dig through the garage and climb up into the old dusty attic. We want to know the age of the oldest Mac that you still have in your possession.
Are you a new Mac user who doesn’t even remember the days of the sunflower iMac or are you an old school user who remembers what Macs were like back when Jobs was a long-haired hippie? Perhaps you even owned an Apple computer before the days of the Mac!
Cast your vote in the poll and then leave a comment with the dirt. Which Apple computer is it? When did you purchase it? What are the technical specs? We want to know! Also, if you happen to have a picture, we’d love to see it.
An introduction to Instagram might be more than unnecessary, but for the few lost ones that have never heard of the service, Instagram is a mobile service that allows you to upload and share pictures right from your phone, with its characteristic vintage filters that make even the dullest photo look interesting.
However, Instagram has yet to come up with its own web service to view pictures from your computer, and right now the only way to browse through your Instagram feed (as well as upload pictures) is through your iOS or Android devices. That’s why today we’re going to bring you 5 third-party Mac apps that allow you to browse and interact with your Instagram feed right from your desktop.
I’ve recently started toying with the idea of upgrading my MacBook Pro’s stock 500 GB hard drive with a new SSD. The cost of an SSD that comes anywhere close to 500 gigs is terrifying, so I’ve been shopping around for a drive that has less than half of that capacity. In order to determine if I could survive with a comparatively diminutive drive, I’ve begun some serious spring cleaning.
There are a ton of great apps out there for keeping your Mac’s hard drive clean. FIPLAB joins this crowded market with a very simple utility called Disk Doctor. I’ve employed it in my quest to squeeze my disk usage down to SSD capacity. Read on to find out how it fared in my tests.
For those who haven’t heard of Two Dollar Tuesday – you are seriously missing out. It is an initiative started up to help smaller and independent Mac developers to gain more revenue and sales by cutting the price of the app to a mere $2. Last week, Dropzone reached the number 2 spot on the Top Productivity Apps and saw a massive 6,700 sales in one day.
Remember these deals are only valid on Tuesday so try to grab them whilst they’re still hot! For more information about the Two Dollar Tuesday initiative, head over to their website.
So, without further ado, here are this week’s $2 app deals.
Before consoles existed and became the most popular form of indoors interactive entertainment, board and trading card games were all the craze. Today, the trading card game community is still strong and new players come to the fold everyday. Trading card games (TCG) or collective card games (CCG) never age because of their deepness and their outstanding replay value. Like RPG games, most TCGs let you buff yourself or your character, summon various allies and creatures, cast any number of spells, and defeat your enemies with cunning strategy; this gives you, the player, ultimate control over your play-through experience.
Shadow Era doesn’t do anything new with the formula and it has a number of downsides, but it gracefully delivers everything a compelling TCG has to offer. From single player, to multiplayer, Shadow Era gives you an easy-to-get-into experience, a great amount of replay value, and a lot of flexibility to tailor your own game experience.
This week has been quite a busy one for app news so without further ado, here’s our roundup of the latest going-ons in the Mac software world.
With the recent announcement of OS X Mountain Lion, Apple decided to bring AirPlay Mirroring functionality to the Mac. While that’s exciting to look forward to down the road, an alternative app, AirParrot, has come out of the woodwork promising to be even better than Apple’s own solution.
Does AirParrot stand a chance against Mountain Lion or should you just wait until that latter’s summer release? Read on!
If I had a nickel for every window management app I’ve used on the Mac, I’d be a rich man. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that a small and relatively unknown app named Spectacle faces an uphill battle in the fight for their share of the window management market.
Will its simple interface, rich functionality, and open source code be enough to give Spectacle a place in this already crowded market? We’ll go in-depth after the break.
