Dialectic 1.9 ($25) - Dialectic provides system-wide dialing of phone numbers to different devices and services such as Bluetooth mobile phones, landlines, IP phones, VoIP services, and more.

Bean 3.2.3 (free) - Bean is a basic word processor that offers greater simplicity than larger programs, but more features than basic text editors. The software includes a live word count and an Inspector panel with various formatting options. Version 3.2.3 reverts a change that was supposed to allow images within names containing non-ascii characters to save in the .rtfd and .bean formats. The fix was incorrect and caused a large problem that prevented headers and footers from saving. [Download - 3.1MB]

Support is included for creating presets by combining different textures, effects, and borders, while a library of pre-made settings can be downloaded from the company's website. The latest release includes a new set of default presets. [Download - 65.1MB]

Artboard 1.7 ($30) - Artboard is a simple and direct vector drawing application that includes more than 20 unique tools for creating digital art. The default workflow has been simplified in this release, but still allows users to access more advanced features by enabling them in the preferences. The boolean operations have also been enhanced, and disabling the Core Image group will now show the components within as if the filter was turned off. [Download - 72.5MB]

Kwik 2.1 ($250) - Kwik is a plug-in for Photoshop that looks to simplify the process of creating interactive content for iOS and Android devices. In the latest release users can reorder layers directly inside a group, add nested groups, change group orders, and define properties such as alpha and scale for each group. Navigation has also been rewritten to use the Corona scrollview widget, and to allow the exclude of pages from the auto navigation panel with the click of a button. [Download - 3.5MB]
