Your iTunes library can turn into an unsightly mess far quicker than most of us would like to admit. By the time you’ve ripped CD collections, purchased albums, and dragged in the random online mp3 download, odds are you’ve got a lot of music with missing cover art, artist info, and more.

Tunes Cleaner aims to make sorting and tidying your iTunes library easy and painless, along with helping you reorganize and repair your music using its ‘powerful online database’. Is it what you’ve been needing to keep your iTunes library tidy? Let’s dive in and see.

This post is part of a series that revisits some of our readers’ favorite articles from the past that still contain awesome and relevant information that you might find useful. This post was originally published on September 9th, 2011

As you would expect from the editor of a Mac blog, I’m a complete app addict. I have random applications for everything from cataloguing recipes to counting characters in a TextEdit document. Some of these I use on a daily basis, but many of them admittedly sit and collect dust in my Applications folder.

This article is an attempt to narrow down my absolute bare essentials. What three things do I think are fundamentally lacking in OS X and would need to be installed on any machine that I use for more than a few hours, regardless of what I’m doing? Which apps genuinely save me a considerable amount of time in my daily routine? Let’s take a look!

Platformers are ubiquitous among video games, and many new games of this genre riding on the coattails of the classic games of yesteryear. For a modern platformer to stand out, there has to be a new angle to hook players that are bored with an oversaturated market of generic Mario lookalikes.

Gunman Clive, an iOS game that has recently made the move to Mac, combines tight, challenging gameplay with gorgeous, stylish graphics, elevating it above copycat platformers. But are cool graphics and smooth moves enough to make a good game or is Gunman Clive just shooting his mouth off? (more…)

Last week, yet another Humble Bundle was launched, and the special is still running through this week. The Humble Bundle has become one of the best known software bundles ever, and the team behind it continues to surprise with consistently high-quality bundles.

The Humble Bundle is unique in the world of bundles for the way it does business. You can pay whatever you want for a bundle, legitimately getting a ton of games for perhaps mere cents. Now, though, it offers extra games for those who beat the average price paid for the bundle, which is a great incentive to pay more for the bundle. Even still, most of the time, you can get over a dozen games for less than $6, including their soundtracks, Steam licenses, and the option to play them on OS X, Windows, or Linux. Not bad at all.

That’s why we’re wondering: have you ever bought a Humble Bundle? Do you look forward to new ones coming out so you can get more games for your library? We’d love to hear your thoughts about the most popular bundle in the comments!

Students and professionals have a revolving door relationship with task and note taking applications. Very rarely is there one application that fits every need a user might have. SideNote was sent to us by developer Daniel Wee as a contender in this complex market. Contenders like Apple’s own Stickies – or powerhouse Evernote – make this a difficult space to succeed in.

Does SideNote have a place in today’s information collection station? Let’s take a look.

Remote desktop application Royal TS is one of the most powerful and feature complete RDP client managers for the Windows environment, and has just made its way to OS X. For IT administrators this is a huge boon for folks who prefer using OS X but had to previously rely on CoRD to handle our RDP sessions.

CoRD, the current de facto RDP client, does a more than adequate job with RDP sessions, so is Royal TSX worth taking a look in to and eventually paying the €20 when it’s out of beta? Read on to find out.

When it comes to keeping your internal hard disc drive clean, I think we can all agree that the most widely popular alternative for the Mac out there is CleanMyMac, an app that can help you free up disk space by find files that aren’t useful anymore

Today we are reviewing an app from the CleanMyMac developers that brings the awesome disc cleaning that made their main app famous to your external disc drives. It’s a small simple app that’s very fittingly called “CleanMyDrive“. Want to check it out?

There are a lot of cloud sharing services, but most of them either have pretty strict limits on file size or require you create an account and buy storage space. The free filesharing services used to transfer larger files, while great in a browser, have typically lacked desktop clients. Either chopping a file up into multiple parts to share via an app or opening your browser to upload a file would both break your workflow.

Drip, a menubar app to accompany SendSpace, is trying to piece your workflow back together. Giving you access to SendSpace right in the menubar, Drip allows you to share large files seamlessly. But can Drip make a splash or will it get lost in the sea of cloud sharing apps? (more…)

Our giveaway is now closed, and congrats to our winners! Stay tuned for more great giveaways coming up soon!

Bundles are a great way to get a ton of new apps for a great price. I’ve gotten several of the apps I use all the time, including Billings and WriteRoom, from bundles, and recently picked up some great new games and soundtracks from the latest Humble Bundle. The Humble Bundle is especially neat since you can pay just what you want, and this week, there’s a great new bundle with apps to help you be productive on your Mac that works the same way.

Our friends at StackSocial are running their Name Your Own Price Mac Bundle this week, which is one of the best deals we’ve ever seen for Mac software.
