With DaisyDisk you can free up disk space by quickly finding and deleting big, useless files. The program scans any mounted disk and displays it on the sunburst map, where segments mean files and folders, proportionally to their sizes. The map is easy to read and navigate. You can also quickly preview any file and delete it.
DaisyDisk uses sunburst visualization to display disk usage. It's easier to read and navigate than rectangular treemaps used in other products.
Who said disk utilities have to be ugly and tangled? We strived to make DaisyDisk both easy to use and visually appealing.
Find, preview, delete
Locate a big file. Hit Space to preview its content. Drag and drop the file to collector. Click Delete. Done.
More than meets the eye
We took care of numerous details to make your experience with DaisyDisk as smooth as possible. And there's more to come.
Freedom is an application that disables wireless and ethernet networking on an Apple computer for up to three hours at a time. Freedom will free you from the distractions of the internet, allowing you time to code, write, or create. At the end of your selected offline period, Freedom re-enables your network, restoring everything as normal.
Freedom enforces freedom; a reboot is the only circumvention of the Freedom time limit you specify. The hassle of rebooting means you're less likely to cheat, and you'll be more productive. Not rebooting is why we bought Apple computers in the first place. When first getting used to Freedom, I suggest using the software for short periods of time.
HD Speed Test
Benchmarking tools do not accurately represent the real-world workflow of importing, editing and working with HD video files. This program was written to solve that problem by using actual system calls - just like Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere (or Avid Media Composer) - and benchmarking your drives based on their ability to read/write/import the video files youâve recorded.
Isolator is a small menu bar application that helps you concentrate. When you're working on a document, and don't want to be distracted, turn on Isolator. It will cover up your desktop and all the icons on it, as well as the windows of all your other applications, so you can concentrate on the task in hand.
Isolator is similar to, but not the same as Think and Backdrop. The difference is that it works exactly how I want it to. Maybe you'll like it too.
Leap 2 has been totally rewritten to use the new industry standard OpenMeta tag conventions so that you can share tags across numerous programs. But not only that, Leap 2 has numerous user interface tweaks and improvements to make tagging, rating and browsing your files even easier.
A more natural way.
With Leap you find things based on your natural memory of that file. âHhmm it was a big photoshop file of a basketball courtâ or âSomething I tagged importantâ or âA word document somewhere in my documents folderâ. With the Finder though, it's more like âI think it might be called bball.psd and that I put it in the originals folder in images in the Project 29 folder which I think I put in Documents... nope, not there... where did I put it?"
Folders and rigid hierarchies might have made sense back when we had hundreds of files, but we're now swimming in images, files, movies and other data. That's where tags come in. Tags are keywords that you assign to a file. This makes it extremely easy to find documents, regardless of their location. Why hunt through an arcane hierarchy of folders and files to find the document we want? Apple's Finder first came out over 20 years ago and we think it's time for a new approach to finding, organizing and browsing your most important documents.
Liquifile is a new file browser for Mac OS X. It replaces the file size and date columns with different size dots. Larger dots positioned more to the right in the window represent larger files sizes with a newer date. It makes it really easy to scan a window and select files in that window visually.
It also has an extremely quick file search/filter in the window that is much easier to use than Apple's slower Spotlight search. It grabs results by the file information and displays it in a tree structure that is flat and easy to scan.
Sometimes, files on the Mac cannot be deleted, moved or renamed. This can be caused by insufficient access rights, or because some processes are still using these files.
Unfortunately, the Mac OS X Finder doesn't tell the user which processes exactly are causing the lock. Also, these processes are often running hidden in the background - so they can't even be quit using the Dock.
Here, Lock-UnMatic comes into play. Simply drag and drop the affected files onto the application-icon (or into the application-window), and Lock-UnMatic shows you a nice overview of all blocking processes. It's also possible to kill these processes from within the application.
Max is an application for creating high-quality audio files in various formats, from compact discs or files.
The Nambu Network is about creating the best possible social networking experience, as we think it needs to be done: natively. That is, as a native application: responsive, always available, and with all of your preferred services together in one place. Nambu is social messaging streamlined.

It's a menubar application that does one simple thing: pop up a small notepad; that's it. It doesn't allow for multiple notes or snippet management. It's simply a scratch pad that pops up with a simple click on the menubar or by hitting a user-definable hotkey. Despite, or rather because of, its simplicity I find it quite handy and it has earned a spot on my menubar. Thanks to TUAW for the headsup.
ShoveBox catches all those little scraps of information that you can't act on now but would rather not forget. It sits up in your menubar, waiting for you to drag in text, images, urls, and more.

When you come up for air, ShoveBox also provides a sensible interface to sort everything you shoved during the day. And by setting up powerful importing rules, you can drastically reduce the thinking you'll have to do later.

TuneSpan: (OS X app) A utility that allows you to browse and span* your iTunes Library.
*span: (verb) to distribute the media files in your iTunes Library across multiple drives.
What does TuneSpan do?
TuneSpan helps you easily move the media files (Music, Movies, etc.) in your iTunes Library to multiple drives, avoiding the pitfalls of moving files manually. TuneSpan lets you browse and keep track of media in your iTunes Library on all drives, whether they're connected or not, and makes it clear to you what is and isn't currently available to play in iTunes. TuneSpan also offers sophisticated filtering options that aren't available in iTunes.
Why do I need TuneSpan?
There are several reasons you may need TuneSpan:
- You're running out of space. You have a big iTunes Library on your internal drive and you want to move some (or all) of it to an external drive. TuneSpan helps you do this easily and seamlessly while cleaning up after itself and allowing you to always keep track of where everything is.
- You store a lot of Movies/TV Shows in iTunes and you want to re-organize your media (i.e., move all your videos to an external drive). With TuneSpan, you can easily select a whole Media Type and move the files wherever you choose, while continually being able to see where the files are, move them around again, or restore them easily.
- You need more space temporarily. TuneSpan offers a fast way to move gigabytes of files in your iTunes Library to free up space. Later, you can easily restore your files to their original locations while keeping your iTunes Library perfectly intact.
- You regularly add new Music, Movies, Podcasts, etc. With TuneSpan you can easily move older media (or media you don't listen to as much) to an external drive while keeping your default iTunes Media location the same. This way, new stuff goes where it should and there's always room for more
Is there anything TuneSpan can't span
Unfortunately, TuneSpan can't span files that aren't included in the readable XML iTunes Library file. TuneSpan has no access to the following files; they are left untouched and unchanged:
Mobile Apps, Rented Movies, Ring Tones, Text-Based Books, iTunes LPs, and iTunes Extras
Also, for SD and HD versions of a video, only one at a time can be spanned (the one that's currently selected in iTunes).
URLwell is a simple and unobtrusive menu extra that lets you drag and drop URLs onto its icon to store temporary bookmarks. Once you've visited a bookmark, it's automatically removed from the list.
It's great for those times when you come across a web page that looks like something you might want to take a look at, but you don't have time to do so at that given moment. It's easier and less cluttered than storing such short term bookmarks with your regular bookmarks.
VLC (initially VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats, including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, MP3, and OGG, as well as for DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.

The most prominent additions to version 0.8.6 are probably Windows Media Video 9 and Flash Video. Other important changes are improved H.264 decoding, better Windows Unicode support, and a full-screen.
WebnoteHappy is a bookmark manager that helps you organize and remember the web pages that matter to you. Each web page can be personalized with notes and tags as you bookmark it, creating a "webnote". The fast integrated search makes it easy to find your webnotes again.

Word Counter is a Macintosh OS X application that performs a word count and a character count, but it can do much more. It can be used independently or in conjunction with other applications such as TextEdit, Microsoft Word, Pages, TextWrangler, and others.
Text can be typed, pasted, or dragged into the window. Word Counter can automatically update the count based on a user-defined time interval. It also can perform bulk counts on multiple files and folders simply by dropping them onto the window. Word Counter can count the number of times a particular word appears in a document. It can even create a sortable summary table of all words in the document, with the number of times each word appears and the length of each word.
Word Counter can handle various file types including plain text (txt, text), rich text (rtf, rtfd), Hypertext Markup Language (htm, html), Microsoft Word (doc), Microsoft Word XML (wordml), and Apple's web archive (webarchive). This program may be useful for writing a manuscript or an abstract with a strict limit on the number of words or characters allowed.

"A Tron clone in 3D"
This has been the tagline of Armagetron, since, well, a very long time, and is probably the shortest and most accurate description possible. Tron was an arcade game based on the movie of the same name, release by Disney in 1982. The original game consisted of 4 sub-games, the only one of concern is the 'Light Cycles' one, in which the player uses a left/right joystick to control a 'Light Cycle' which leaves a wall behind it wherever the cycle it goes, turning only at 90 degree angles...

Originally based on Atari's 1980 arcade game, Battle Zone capture Flag is an online multiplayer (and multiplatform) 3D tank game with chat. Although the game can vary widely from server to server, the basic idea is usually to shoot the tanks of another team's color. Modes such as "free for all," "capture the flag," and "hunt the rabbit" alter the objective of the game, and grab bag style flags help keep things interesting by providing a variety of power ups (good flags) and power downs (bad flags).
I have written this program for my daughter Chantal. Since her first year of life she likes to sit on my lap and types on the keyboard of my Macintosh. She is always happy if something changes on the monitor or a tone appears.
The first version of Bambini was developed by this situation. It displayed different forms at every keystroke by random. Also, a tone was played. When Chantal was 3 years old and wanted a little more interaction, I added some additional games. The simple forms were also completed by more effortful, lovely animal pictures, designed by Marcel MÃ¶ri.
With version 3, I completely redesigned Bambini and enhanced the operation in many points. It consists, of altogether 5 different games now, which can be played with 5 different picture sets . Now it is very much easier to add own pictures. A version for Windows and Linux is available now, too.

Cinch gives you simple, mouse-driven window management by defining the left, right, and top edges of your screen as 'hot zones'. Drag a window until the mouse cursor enters one of these zones then drop the window to have it cinch into place. Cinching to the left or right edges of the screen will resize the window to fill exactly half the screen, allowing you to easily compare two windows side-by-side (splitscreen). Cinching to the top edge of the screen will resize the window to fill the entire screen (fullscreen). Dragging a window away from its cinched position will restore the window to its original size.
If you prefer a keyboard-centric approach to window management, you might also take a look at our other products SizeUp or TwoUp. Use Cinch together with either SizeUp or TwoUp to cover both your mouse and keyboard needs.

ID Infiltr8 is my tagging program for mp3 & m4a files. I got tired of having to manually capitalize & tag my audio files. It was so incredibly repetetive - so I started out on a program that could do it for me (ala EasyTag for Linux). That program was called mp3Spec and was limited to setting a few tags & file renaming.
This is the program I've wanted to write for a long time now, & it's now fully functional. The last big part was writing to m4a files - that now happens perfectly with AtomicParsley. AtomicParsley is my own command line mpeg4 tagging tool that supports multiple pieces of artwork & lyrics - along with the image resizing/limiting features introduced into id3Gateway and is opensource & GPL'ed at sourceforge.

Jim's San Juan
From Jim Getzen's own website:
"San Juan, by Andreas Seyfarth, is an outstanding card game for 2-4 players. It's reasonably easy to learn, has plenty of depth and nuance, and just the right amount of luck. It's simply a lot of fun.
Jim's San Juan is a faithful version of the card game. I didn't include the rules, since I really intend the game to be played by those who own the actual card game, but I am sure they can be tracked down in the wilds of the web.
I made this game in 2005 and posted it at BoardGameGeek.com. It implements the complete rule set (with one or two very minor exceptions), and features pretty good AI players, which are modifiable. The AI can compete against one another in automated sessions. A few people have contributed AI files (the AI is controlled by easy-to-modify text files), icons, and suggestions.
JSJ is an older game of mine, but I'm rather proud of it, and I haven't had any incompatibility reports."

Mac GNU Privacy Guard
Mac GNU Privacy Guard (Mac GPG for short) is, after a fashion, the Mac OS X port of GnuPG, licensed under the GNU GPL. The aims of the project are to make GnuPG easy to install, develop a framework to make it easy for other developers to incorporate GnuPG functionality into their applications, write services to allow for the use of GnuPG functions in most Cocoa applications, and write a Mac GPG Keys type application so that you no longer have to go to the commandline to manage your keys. For those who don't know, GnuPG is a free OpenPGP client (PGP == Pretty Good Privacy). It can encrypt text (usually e-mail or other messages sent between people) and sign text to prove who wrote it. A further discussion of this can be found elsewhere.

MacFUSE is a FUSE-Compliant File System Implementation Mechanism for Mac OS X. MacFUSE implements a mechanism that makes it possible to implement a fully functional file system in a user-space program on Mac OS X (10.4 and above). It aims to be API-compliant with the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) mechanism that originated on Linux. Therefore, many existing FUSE file systems become readily usable on Mac OS X. The core of MacFUSE is in a dynamically loadable kernel extension.
How FUSE-compliant is MacFUSE? Well, enough so that many popular FUSE file systems can be easily compiled and work on Mac OS X--often out of the box. Examples of file systems that work have been tested (to varying degrees) include sshfs, ntfs-3g (read/write NTFS), ftpfs (read/write FTP), wdfs (WebDAV), cryptofs, encfs, bindfs, unionfs, beaglefs (yes, including the entire Beagle paraphernalia), and so on.
Now the first version of NTFS wrtiteable filesystem is available: http://osx.iusethis.com/app/ntfs-3g

QuickTime Player 7
Like to take a magic carpet ride?
Just launch QuickTime Player, and thereâs no telling where youâre likely to land. The Player may whisk you to the Moon or perhaps to an exotic location on this planet. Take you on a virtual field trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Or treat you to the latest news, movie trailers, music videos, HBO series or PBS specials.
QuickTime 7 Pro is everything that Apple's backbone media engine is, with features unlocked. Record audio, capture video, convert file formats, and save some web delivered content.
Quickscale is designed to let you scale a large of of pictures to a desired size and format. Now, why would you want to do that? For example, if you wish to share your holiday photo's with family and friends, you can either send them by e-mail or put them somewhere on a website. The problem is that these pictures are usually far to large, have immense resolutions, and take far to long to send.
Meet Quickscale: select the images, choose a desired resolution, and Quickscale scales them down for you.
Quicksilver is a unified, extensible interface for working with applications, contacts, music, and other data.
Anyone using a computer (and the Macintosh is no exception) spends a lot of time locating files and applications, and then carrying out actions on those items. The Finder is a reasonably good tool for getting a visual overview of the contents of your disk, but it isn't ideal for quickly locating and manipulating files, especially if you have a deep and complicated folder structure, or if you prefer keyboard navigation to using the mouse.
Quicksilver allows you to find what you need quickly and easily, while keeping your hands on the keyboard. For example, if you want to launch an application hidden in the depths of your file system, simply activate Quicksilver with a keystroke, type a few letters of the application's name, then hit Return or Enter to launch it. When you don't need Quicksilver, it keeps out of your way, preserving precious screen real estate, and yet you can summon it instantly with a key stroke - just like Mercury the winged messenger. Actually, Roman mythological texts are remarkably silent on whether Mercury could be summoned with a key stroke, but it would have been great if he could. Quicksilver will certainly make you feel as if you have god-like powers.
Sometimes, when I am browsing the web, I want to store a link for later. There are note taking applications and everything-buckets to do that, but I wanted something light and simple. Simple as dragging a link onto a menu bar item to store it.

Before Safari, browsers were an afterthought. Something you put up with if you wanted to surf the internet. One browser looked and felt just like another, so you chose the one that worked the best and crashed the least. They were ugly, cluttered affairs, whose interfaces competed for your attention and made browsing â” the very purpose for which they were created â” more difficult. Safari changes all that.
Safari is designed to emphasize the browsing, not the browser. The browser frame is a single pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when needed. By default, thereâs no status bar. Instead, a progress gear turns as your page loads. And if you so choose, you can hide almost the entire interface, removing virtually every distraction from the browser window. A great browser should get out of your way and let you simply enjoy the web. Safari does just that. And it does it regardless of platform.
The first browser to deliver the ârealâ internet to a mobile device, Safari renders pages on iPhone and iPod touch just as you see them on your computer. But this is more than just a scaled down mobile-version of the original. It takes advantage of the technologies built into these multi-touch devices. The page shifts and reformats to fill the window when you turn it on its side. You zoom in just by pinching and extending your fingers. Of course, no matter how you access it, Safari is always blazing fast and easy-to-use.

- A NEW WRITING EXPERIENCE Â· Forget everything you know about traditional text editors and word processors. Forget about WYSIWYG, formats, rulers and page sizes. Then forget about common means of managing your documents. Forget about the Finder, files & folders, sub-sub-folders and Spotlight search results. Ulysses is not like that. Not at all.
- THE SEMANTIC EDITOR Â· At its core, Ulysses is a semantic text editor that borrows concepts from Setext and LaTeX. It truly separates content from presentation, written input from printed output. Youâll not assign font-weights and colors to emphasize words or mark introductory paragraphs; youâll define âheadlinesâ and âcommentsâ and structure and meaning.
- DEDICATED AND DEVOTED Â· Thereâs nothing superfluous in Ulysses. Fullscreen, Console Mode, Bookmarks, Text Trash, multiple Notepads, term-centric Search & Replace, Filters, Collections, coherent Document Previews â” every feature serves a single purpose: Your output as a writer. It canât help you writeâ¦ but it will help you create.
- PUBLISHING LOVE Â· Once your work is done, you want to get it out. On the web, to the printer, at your agentâs. Due to Ulyssesâ semantic nature, anything is possible: Exclude documents, include notes, strip out comments, style and format dialog and whatnot. Export to PDF, RTF and LaTeX â” even good olâ DOC. Just remember that your editor might prefer plain text.

Please read Commercial demo license before you download, which can be found at http://www.macness.com .
IMPORTANT: Always backup your Apple iCal Calendars and Google Calendars before installing and using gSync.
To unlock the 30 day demo, you may now purchase gSync (Personal or Group license).

iCal allows you to choose between viewing your schedule by day, week or month. And it's easy to find things on your calendar using iCal's powerful search feature.
iCal helps you organize your schedule by letting you create as many separate calendars as you need.
At the click of a mouse, you can easily subscribe to any number of public calendars available on the Internet.
If you've been using a Mac for years, you probably have hundreds or thousands of old events stored in iCal. All of that legacy data can bog down iCal and make it slow. And if you're syncing your calendars with others using BusySync, you're probably slowing them down too.
You can significantly increase the performance of iCal by archiving these old events using iCal Archiver.
iCal Archiver is a free utility that copies old events to an archive calendar and deletes them from the source calendar. The archive calendar can then be exported for safe keeping, and deleted from iCal. Once the old events have been deleted, iCal's database should be much smaller and require less memory, resulting in faster performance.
Face the day! Always know what's next in your schedule using iCal Events. iCal Events displays upcoming events from multiple calendars in a beautiful, resizable widget for Dashboard. You can see up to two weeks of upcoming events in the same widget without needing to open iCal.

A small workflow-example
Two guys made photos from the same event:
- G1: old camera with small memory cards -> three folders, each with imagenames "DSC00001 - DSC00xxx".
- G2: modern camera -> one folder with imagenames "P1010741 - P1010xxx".
Both camera-dates where not synchronized, so the images are in the wrong order when imported into iPhoto, for example.
So, let's fix this mess ... launch shootShifter and drag the folders onto the app.
Thumbnails for all images are created and displayed in chronological order.
You can click on individual images to view them in the more detailed preview-drawer.
Select one of the folders to make it the active one (the thumbnails are moved a few pixels up)
Now you can move this active folder in time. Either by modifying the changes-interface in the right-hand drawer, or by simply dragging around one of its thumbnails.
After dropping the thumbnail you can verify the amount of the changes and the new order of all the images. If everything is correct, you can save these changes.
Be sure to verify and adjust the renaming options and then press the "Continue" button.
You are done. All the imagedates are correct and the pics are named in a way that you can store them easily in one folder.
