I’d like to say a big thank you to this week’s sponsor, Flux. Billed as an advanced HTML5 Web design application, Flux is capable of creating stunning sites from scratch. Far from being a simple template based solution, it’s a creative design environment.

Flux can edit existing sites, or create brand new ones using HTML and CSS. You can even drag and drop in pre-designed objects like photo galleries and navigations menus.

Whether you’re wanting to create your first website, or you’re a seasoned pro, Flux is definitely worth giving a try! It’s always good to try out a range of design and development tools, and I’d certainly recommend experimenting with Flux today.

It’s priced at $119.99 on the Mac App Store, and you can download a fully-functional trial from The Escapers website to decide whether its for you.

This week, I’m once again incredibly proud to have Pixelmator as our Mac.AppStorm sponsor. One of my all-time favourite apps, this is a fantastic alternative to the increasingly-bloated Photoshop for all manner of graphic editing work.

Labelled as an “image editor for the rest of us”, Pixelmator’s interface is enjoyable to use while maintaining a simple learning curve for new adopters. If you’re already a seasoned Photoshop pro, you’ll feel right at home with the familiar palette interface and similar tools.

Pixelmator is based on Core Image technology that uses your Mac’s video card for image processing. This means that it’s fast. It supports a huge range of graphics formats, and the price of $59 is a welcome change to the inflated charge for many competing apps.

Although I still use Photoshop from time to time, Pixelmator has become by go-to tool for 80% of tasks that require working with graphics. If you yearn for a faster, sleeker alternative to Photoshop, give Pixelmator a try today.

We’d like to say a big thank you to this month’s Mac.AppStorm sponsors, and the great software they create! If you’re interested in advertising, you can purchase a banner advertisement through BuySellAds, or sign up for a Weekly Sponsorship slot.

Thank you to the fantastic applications we had sponsoring each week during the month, all of which we personally recommend you download and try out!

  • LittleSnapper – This is a wonderful application for collecting, organising, and sharing inspiring snippets and images you come across on the web.
  • Jumsoft Pages Templates – These are a great way to spruce up your collection of pre-built Pages designs, and some of the new graphical layouts are really gorgeous.
  • Courier – This fantastic piece of software makes it easy to quickly share files, images, photos, movies, and more with all your favourite online services – including Flickr and Facebook.
  • Postbox – The latest release of Postbox brings an array of fantastic functionality, some of which we covered a few weeks ago. This includes a unified inbox, account groups, improved conversation views, and “Quick Actions” for replying to messages.

Thanks for reading AppStorm this month, and for checking out the software that our sponsors create. I really appreciate it.

  • RapidWeaver 5 – Released just a few weeks ago, RapidWeaver 5 is a worthy upgrade to an already stellar piece of web design software for the Mac.
  • Pixelmator – One of my all-time favourite apps, this is a fantastic alternative to the increasingly-bloated Photoshop for all manner of graphic editing work.

We have a slightly different sponsor this week, in the form of Yellow Media Group. This innovative company offers a telephone support service for Mac developers, making it easy to add an extra level of support to users without spending 24 hours a day by the phone.

They work with companies such as MacPaw to offer various services that make it easier than ever for users to solve any problems they encounter when using your app.

Yellow Media Group are doing something really interesting in conjunction with their sponsorship. They’d like to know which applications you’d like to have telephone support for. Share your thoughts in the comments, and they’ll offer their services for free to the chosen developer!

  • CleanMyMac – A great tool for keeping your Mac in tip-top shape that packs an impressive functionality punch for the price. I run CleanMyMac every couple of months, and it always manages to free up several gigabytes of unnecessary data.
  • Billings Pro – The basic version of Billings is perfect for freelancers and small companies – but if you run a larger organisation, it’s definitely worth taking a look at Billings Pro. This advanced version offers powerful time tracking, synchronization between different computers, and the ability to review and approve invoices. It’s a powerful beast.
  • Radium – A lightweight internet radio player with a wonderfully retro icon! Radium allows you to listen to thousands of radio stations from around the world, right from your OS X menu bar. It’s simple, functional, and an absolutely fantastic way to listen to the radio on your Mac.
  • TextExpander – If you regularly find yourself typing the same piece of text over and over again, TextExpander could be a real life-saver. It’s a simple way to store a library of regularly used text snippets, and easily recall them using a pre-defined keyword. We also have an exclusive discount code (APPSTORMTE) for AppStorm readers, good for 20% off until the 5th December.

Thanks for reading AppStorm this month, and for checking out the software that our sponsors create. I really appreciate it.

I’m looking forward to all the exciting things we have planned for next month. It’s going to be a pretty amazing end to the year, so stay tuned!

We’re constantly striving to make AppStorm the go-to place for discovering high quality Mac software, and I really value the time you dedicate to reading what we have to say. It means a lot! For this reason, if we haven’t extensively tried and tested a piece of software, it’s unlikely to be featured on the site.

Although Quick Look has been a great way for developers to get the word out about their apps on AppStorm, it’s difficult to write about – and recommend – a piece of software that we aren’t completely familiar with.

For this reason, we’re phasing out Quick Look, and introducing a new way for developers to share their latest and greatest apps with you. Weekly Sponsorships will involve one extra post per week, highlighting a particular developer or application that we personally recommend.

We’re setting a really high standard for the sponsors we accept on AppStorm, and will only be recommending software that we’re tried, tested, and use ourselves on a regular basis!

I hope this will give you a chance to find out about great new software that you haven’t come across before, while at the same time maintaining the high quality of coverage you’ve come to expect from AppStorm.

If you’re a developer and would like to find out more, you can read all about Weekly Sponsorships here. We’re launching this service on Mac.AppStorm next week, with Web.AppStorm and iPhone.AppStorm to follow shortly.
