Thursday wound up being a hotbed for app updates and product news, but if you were too busy to keep up on everything, we've managed to cap off the short work week with a handful of the best announcements. Seems like there's something for everyone here, including Google Music fans, Tweetbot for Mac users and Creative Cloud subscribers ready for a taste of Adobe's big update next month.
Plagued with high-profile hacks in recent months, Twitter is finally getting serious about security with a new two-step login verification -- but users will need to actually enable it first before they'll be protected.
In preparing this year’s 20 Under $20 list, we loved the idea of presenting 20 killer Mac apps you might not know about — 20 is such a round, pleasant number, and would hopefully let us find something for everyone. But $20 per app might not seem like the bargain-basement price that it used to, even just back in the summer of 2011 when we did our last 20 Under $20 feature.

No doubt about it, the big news on Thursday was our top recap story: The lightning fast sellout of WWDC 2013 tickets.

But there's a little something for everyone in today's recap, so read on...
Hey, that was quick: After being teased earlier this week, Delicious Library 3 (and the free Delicious Scanner iOS app) is now available to organize all of your media and get recommendations on what to buy next.
Oh, Google… now you've gone and done it! The biggest shocker on Wednesday was tucked away inside a blog post detailing a number of lesser services the search giant decided were no longer relevant, but the tech world wasted no time lamenting the loss of Google Reader, which the company plans to give a dirt nap on July 1. The petitions to keep it alive are already out in full force, but something tells us Google won't be changing its mind on this one...
Twitter's upcoming API changes have been met with derision by many, but third-party developers are simply moving forward and adapting to the new guidelines, which are rolled into the latest Tweetbot updates.
If you need to create powerful slideshows with full control over the end results, you've no doubt discovered FotoMagico, one of the best solutions available for the Mac -- and now, a trio of new features are making it even better.
