TagBot; iShowU

  • TagBot 1.1 ($20) tags and filters files by user-created keywords, which can be assigned by right-clicking in Finder, or dragging a file to the TagBot palette. Double-clicking on a keyword shows all the associated files. Version 1.1 allows users to tag folders and Safari bookmarks, and now has better support for MailTags and Address Book. The app is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4. [Download - 4.6MB]

  • iShowU 1.34 ($21) captures and records whatever is displayed on screen, as well as all audio, whether from programs or a microphone. The mouse cursor can be disabled, and video can be in any format supported by QuickTime, including H.264 and Apple Anumation. The v1.34 update allows a much broader variety of audio settings, and will automatically tweak video size to be a multiple of 32. The performance of high framerate recording has also been dramatically improved. [Download - 7.3MB]

  • RapidoSerial 1.1 (free) organizes a backup of all the serial numbers, license files and other critical information associated with purchased software. The v1.1 update allows the database to be encrypted through a password, and an assistant simplifies adding software. The user interface has been updated as well, and several bugs have been fixed. Mac OS X 10.4 or higher is required. [Download - 1.4MB]

  • ChangeShortName 1.3 (donation) bypasses the normally difficult process of changing a Mac OS X account's short name, which is distinguished from the long name adjustable in System Preferences. The app runs a Unix script which can also be accessed separately, and may be able to repair problems caused by a manual name change. The latest version has been rewritten in Cocoa with a new interface; as a result, it is no longer compatible with Mac OS X 10.2. Users must instead be running Mac OS X 10.3 or later.

  • HoudahGeo 1.1.1 ($30) links photos with the coordinates at which they were taken, storing the information in EXIF tags, or exporting it to KMZ files for viewing images within Google Earth. If paired with a log from a GPS receiver, coordinates can be inserted automatically. Version 1.1.1 has a separate image preview window, and can send photos directly to Flickr. An image-loading crash bug has been eliminated. Mac OS X 10.4.8 is required. [Download - 5.1MB]

  • FriendSaver 0.93 (free) is a screensaver program that pulls photos from a user's Facebook friends; any photo tagged with a friend's name will be inserted. New photos are downloaded automatically, and users can filter what's displayed by both name and gender. FriendSaver is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and is also dependent on a broadband Internet connection. [Download - 213KB]
