Sip

Ask most people about internet telephony and they’ll probably think of Skype. After all, it’s the most popular service of this kind in the world and available of a wide range of devices. But Skype isn’t the only internet telephony service out there; far from it! In fact, there are thousands of services all over the world using open standards that provide the ability to make and receive phone calls over the internet.

No matter which service you choose to go with, you’re going to need an app to actually make and receive calls. Telephone, as you may have already guessed, is a VoIP client that provides this functionality. I put the app through it’s paces and see if it really does what its name suggests.

I love finding color inspiration from all over, but short of taking screen shots of every website I visit or opening all of my favorite photos in the same image editor, it’s been impossible to get those colors where I can use them. Sure the green of the grass in a photo may be exactly what I want for my website header, but it’s not an easy job converting that to something that makes sense to Tumblr or WordPress.

Sip is here to help, though, allowing you to copy colors from all over and then keep a history of what you’ve seen. We’ll look at how useful it really is and if it saves all that much effort! (more…)

Our giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering, everyone! Congrats to @gustaoo and @Derek_Covatch for winning a copy of TerraRay, @keifun and @lucaschurchill for winning a copy of Sip, and @MohamadAshraf_ and @itkidx for winning a copy of Squirrel!

It’s always fun to snag a great deal on an app. $2 Tuesday has lately been keeping Mac app deals in the headlines with their great deals on popular apps every Tuesday. I personally got a copy of TaskPaper through the $2 Tuesday discount several weeks ago, and it’s quickly become part of my daily workflow.

This week, there’s 3 new apps on $2 Tuesday that just might end up becoming part of your daily workflow soon. All day today, you can get each of the following apps for just $2 (or really $1.99 plus tax in the App Store):

  • Squirrel – A great personal finance management app that was a former Apple Design Award winner.
  • Sip – A simple color picker app for developers that lets you pick colors and copy them with simple keyboard shortcuts.
  • TerraRay – An easy to use terrain rendering app that lets you easily create your own 3D landscape.

Each of these apps are a great deal for just $2, but the best thing is, we have 2 copies of each of them to giveaway to our readers!
