  • Directory Widget (free) will lookup directory information from many colleges, universities, and other institutions. Although it uses the "LDAP" (Lightweight Directory Address Protocol), end users do not need to understand what LDAP is: the widget comes preloaded with settings for over 70 directory servers and also allows users to add other servers to the widget. It requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. [Download - 288KB]

  • iGlasses 1.3.6 ($8) adds a white balance slider control for use with Apple's built-in iSight camera, offering the ability to manually compensate for various lighting conditions that may give video images a blue or orange cast and also adding support for applying iGlasses enhancements in PiXiMation and FlipBook. The software allows Mac users to adjust iSight video settings from within popular video applications such as iChat AV, Skype and iMovie. Features include brightness, color settings, night vision, manual focus, flip and rotate. [Download - 1.5MB]

  • BrowseBack 1.3 ($30) is a web history visualization and search tool that stores a PDF of every web page visited and makes the pages accessible through a unique interface that allows the user to browse thumbnails of the pages. This visual web history can also be searched by content, making it possible to easily retrieve visited web pages with a few keywords. Version 1.3 adds faster searching, large page display of current selection, and various bug fixes. It requires Mac OS X 10.4. [Download - 4.2MB]

  • AKVIS Sketch plug-in v.1.1 enables users to convert a photo into a pencil sketch in a few mouse clicks: "Our efficient method allows creating realistic color and B&W drawings that imitate the technique of graphite and color pencil, charcoal and watercolor painting. In contrast to the similar standard filters (like the built-in filters in Photoshop or PSP) that offer an approximate sketch, AKVIS Sketch provides a more convincing result; it comes very close to hand-drawn works of a human artist. " It requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. [Download - 658KB]

  • VelaClock 1.9 ($10) is free update to the world clock widget that displays a list of cities and corresponding local times. Multiple lower panes can be opened to display more information and take up more screen space. Users can quickly display the time of sunrise, sunset, or twilight, duration of daylight, current phase of moon, time zone information and much more. It now adds a preference to show or hide seconds, offers updated Daylight Saving Time rules for Bermuda, Cuba, Gaza and Honduras, and features reduced CPU usage. [Download - size]
