KavaTunes and KavaServices

KavaSoft today unveiled KavaTunes, a Web-based iTunes-like jukebox, and KavaServices, an addition to Mac OS X's "Services" menu item that adds five useful commands. KavaTunes allows Mac users to create an iTunes look-alike Web page, deployed through the operating system's built-in web server, to stream music over the internet. This allows users to share music from their iTunes library, and allows for continuous playback. While listening to a song, users can click on links to purchase the track from the iTunes Store. KavaTunes is currently available for $35 dollars, and a demo is available for users to try on the KavaTunes web page.

KavaServices is a multi-purpose tool for the "Services" menu, adding a number of features to the Mac OS: translate text in incoming or outgoing mail, convert units from currency to weight, convert RTF-style text into HTML code, calculate a variety of mathematical problems, and a gateway to the Terminal. The translation tool is capable of handling English, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, Greek, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian languages. KavaServices can convert currencies, as well units of measurement, such as area, energy, power, pressure, speed, temperature, time, volume, and weight.

The HTML converter will take any document that is formatted with rich properties like italics, bolding, accented characters, characters from other languages and special punctuation, and turn it into a post-able body of HTML, eliminating a lot of menial code work. KavaServices' math abilities range from basic arithmetic, trigonometry, and arithmetic, to scientific units, base conversions, and more. Lastly, the Terminal gateway allows users to input Terminal commands from any application. KavaServices is available now for $20, with a seven day demo for download as well.
