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.
But guess what? Most of these polished, stable, user-friendly, and utterly useful applications don’t come anywhere close to a full Andrew Jackson, anyway. Four of them are free, and only two cost over $10. We thought about calling it “18 Mac Apps Under $10 and Also Two That Are More Than $10 But Still Less Than $20, and By the Way, Four Are Free,” but that’s just too long, wouldn’t you agree
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 has arrived, and within hours we'll all know how Apple fared during the post-holiday season without having released any significant new products. Investors have probably been chugging Pepto-Bismol for the last week in anticipation of the conference call, and as a result we've been subjected to endless speculation about the company's fate. Assuming Apple has a tomorrow (yes, that's a joke), we sure look forward to getting on to some better news about what the company will be releasing this year...
Whatever your opinion of TweetDeck, it's hard not to sympathize with those about to lose a loved one on May 7, when Twitter effectively slays the mobile versions of its TweetDeck apps. We had a similar situation when Echofon made the decision to axe its Mac client last year, prompting us to switch entirely to Tweetbot for a harmoniously synced iOS/OS X solution. What will you be using to replace TweetDeck mobile?
What's a holiday season without some great deals? While some of you may be gearing up to face the insane crowds of Black Friday -- seriously, why? -- we're sure to see some awesome sales online on Cyber Monday. But in the meantime, app developer MacPhun is rewarding loyal customers with a buy-two-get-one deal that seems pretty great.
It's here, and it's ready for OS X Mountain Lion and your MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Snapheal 2.0 has landed in the Mac App Store, and if you move quickly, you might even get it at a steep discount.
All Googled out from the company's two-hour keynote extravaganza this morning? We can't blame you -- after all, we've never seen any Apple executives skydiving over Moscone West to show off future products! However, today's recap is guaranteed to be 80 percent Google-free -- and the 20 percent we do chat about might make App Store lovers a little green with envy. So let's skydive right into the news for this Wednesday, June 27, 2012.
Lo-fi effects that nostalgically imitate old film cameras are all the rage these days, and there are plenty of apps to prove the point--especially for iOS. FX Photo Studio Pro brings all the effects you love in apps like Hipstamatic, Instagram, and Photo Toaster to your desktop. Cross processing? Check. Lo-fi grunge vignettes? Check. Super-high color saturation with lens flare? Check again. FX Photo Studio Pro has it all.
We’ve all been there: an otherwise excellent digital photo, marred by an intrusive landmark or random stranger who stepped into the frame at an inopportune moment. Pro users with deep pockets make short work of such problems with Photoshop, but what about average users? Snapheal introduces “three unique patented technologies” in a Mac app that makes erasing unwanted objects as easy as one, two, three. Developer MacPhun states, “It does magic to your photos.” It’s a bold claim we happen to agree with.
