The Mac App Store has grown tremendously over the past year. After all, you can only get your Lion update as a digital download. But Mac newbies may feel incredibly overwhelmed by all this new stuff. Hey, Windows wasn't exactly a cake-walk either. With these ten apps, new Mac users can get better situated with OS X. Read on for the handy list.
So we’ve looked at the basics when it comes to freeing up drive space, but if that didn’t do the job, several Mac apps will help you to detect and remove space-wasters. These tools range from system scans that will pick out very large files and list them in order of size to very specific apps that target common drive space thieves (like app-related files that linger after you’ve deleted an app) and bring them to justice via the Trash can. Then there’s the third kind of tool—one that’s part software, part service. Rather than removing large files completely, these offerings provide a way for you to move them to a secure storage space on the web. We’ll show you the four most effective ways to use these apps.

In a recent review of Shadow Cities we said it was "Part RPG, part location-based team strategy game, all addictive time-sink." Unfortunately, when I was reading the review, I didn't pay enough attention to those last three words. Too bad, because weeks later, I'm still sinking all of my time into the epic mage battles.
CNNMoney has a look at a report by analytics company Distimo's report that the Android Market would be larger than the iOS App Store by July. The report looked strictly at the numbers of apps, both paid and free, and based on that, drew the conclusion that more apps will be available for Android than for iOS. Based on current numbers, and the frequency of new apps being added to both stores, iOS soon won't have the largest app store (there are already more free Android apps than there are free iOS apps).
