TuneTagger; FoxTrot

  • TuneTagger 1.0 ($17) automatically hunts for complete song information as tracks play in iTunes, such as official CDDB listings, as well as lyrics and high-resolution (500x500) album art where available. Once information is located, a panel pops up to approve changes. The program can also scroll lyrics in real-time, and pop up a ratings panel for currently unrated tracks. TuneTagger windows fade away when not in use. [Download - 682KB]

  • FoxTrot Personal Search 1.5 ($36) uses the same search engine as CTM's PowerMail to locate local files on a hard drive, generating faster results by using ranking and user-selectable categories. The v1.5 update allows tuning of the ranking system, and the inclusion or exclusion of literal strings and words. Users can also perform proximity searches. FoxTrot is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later. [Download - 5.2MB]

  • Power Manager 3.6 ($27) controls power consumption on a Mac, setting schedules for functions such as startup, shutdown, and going to sleep. Functions such as automatic logout can speed along classes and business timetables. Version 3.6 supports the import and export of complete schedules, and the copying and pasting of events. AppleScript and Automator now better integrate Power Manager into automated workflows. [Download - 2.7MB]

  • iSpeak It 3.1 ($20) takes documents, web pages and RSS feeds and converts them into AAC or MP3 files, using Mac OS X's built-in text-to-speech conversion. The resulting output can then be synched with an iPod for regular delivery of content such as weather and news. The v3.6 upgrade improves PDF processing, enables the creation of audiobooks, and changes Directions support to directly tap into Google Maps. iSpeak It requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

  • Sente 4.2 ($130) simplifies browsing academic research papers by connecting to online archives and presenting them in an iTunes-like interface. Even when offline, Sente keeps local copies of papers and search results for ready viewing. Version 4.2 adds the Thomson Web of Knowledge/Web of Science databases, and can search OAIster using the SRU data source plug-in. While it requires Mac OS X 10.4, users with older operating systems can still download Sente 2.3. [Download - 18.8MB]

  • Bookends 9.2 ($100) is a Mac-only full-featured bibliography/reference and information management application for students and professionals. The software offers functions for locating, obtaining, managing, and using references to create bibliographies and footnotes. Version 3.2 brings enhanced interactivity and collaborative features with Mellel word processor, improved organization of groups and group folders, automatic import of reference information from PubMed when attaching a pdf, a revamped Internet Search interface, and more.
