  • A Better Finder Rename 7.4 ($20) is software designed to ease the time-consuming process of renaming multiple files.

  • Merlin 2.0b6 (free) is a project management application that offers contained functions along with complete risk and file management. This sixth public beta release features a new Budget/Cost balance method as well as a new cost distribution report. Also included in this release is support for Gantt chart export along improved NetPlan and histograms -- all of which can be exported as PDF, JPEG, PNG, or GIF. The first draft of an English tutorial is included to explain many new features. Though currently free, it will cost around $185, when released. Merlin 2 requires Mac OS X 10.4.5 or later.

  • PDFpen 2.4.2 ($50, $100) gives users the ability to show PDFs in single, facing-page, multi-page and multiple facing-page views as well as the ability to fill out and save PDF forms, and create cross-platform fillable PDF forms. The new version adds improved selection behavior to PDF images, offers enhanced text location and selection, corrects a Unicode character map error, and includes other minor bug fixes and performance fixes. PDFpen requires Mac OS X 10.2.5 or later. [Download - PDFpen, PDFpenPro]

  • BetterZip 1.2 ($20) allows users to inspect archives without extracting them. Users have options to extract/delete from or add what to the archives as well. The new release adds a flat list view mode in which all files and folders are displayed--allowing users to sort all included files regardless of their position within the folder hierarchy (such as by date modified). BetterZip is a Universal Binary and requires Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later. [Download - 2.4MB]

  • iValet 1.0b ($20) is an all-in-one application solution to eliminate the need for multiple applications including calendars, clip collectors, calculators, notebooks, and several other small tools. Instead of using dock space when users wish to keep iValet running, the application allows users to "iconize" it; essentially making a floating icon for one-click instant. This is a beta release, but requires a license key (which will work with version 1.0). iValet requires a Mac with a PowerPC or Intel processor running Mac OS X 10.2 or later. [Download - 4.4MB]
