Cocktail, iBank, GH patch

  • Web2 Delight 1.1 ($20) updates the video/photo downloader, organizer and viewer that offers the ability to create slideshows, video conversion, and scheduled downloads; Web2 Delight acts as a portal for multiple video sites (YouTube, Veoh, BlipTV) and photo sharing sites (Flickr, Picasa, Webshots and Photobucket) and can preview and automatically convert any video or photo downloaded, to play on a Mac, iPod, iPhone, or even on Apple TV. Version 1.1 offers an improved thumbnail feature, the ability to transfer entire collections to iPhoto/ iTunes, and other UI tweaks. It requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later. [Download - 16MB]

  • Cocktail 4.1 ($15) for Leopard is the latest maintenance update for the general purpose system utility, adding support for clearing dynamic link editor's (dyld) shared cache as well as support for clearing Internet caches created by the Flock web browser. It also addresses an issue in which the weekly maintenance script may fail to run properly, fixes compatibility issues with Safari 3.1 or later, contains improved Automator actions, and adds many new interface settings. [Download - 2.6MB]

  • Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock for Mac v1.3 (free update) is an official update for the popular game. This patch, which will update any previous version and is recommended for all users, adds a new "Front Row Cam" option that allows better performance and smoother gameplay on low-end configurations. It also adds laptop-specific optimizations for better performance and a battery meter icon will display remaining battery charge on supported laptops. It requires the full game ($60), a 2GHz Intel Mac, and Mac OS X 10.4.10. [Download - 296MB]

  • iBank 3.1 ($60) updates the personal and small business finance management software with improved duplicate sensing: it adds the ability to preview direct downloads for matching transactions; users are alerted if a duplicate transaction has already been imported to iBank, or advised to proceed when no matching transaction is found. The internal browser, which allows users to log in to online accounts without leaving the application, has been enhanced with improved page loading. Upgrades are $30. [Download - 20MB]

  • PocketMac AudioExtractor ($10) enables Mac users to download the audio from YouTube videos and other video streaming sites. It runs in the background of the users' machine, and every time a user visits YouTube or other video sites in Safari, the software automatically downloads the audio from each video and adds the audio into a special playlist in iTunes. It also supports blip.tv, crackle.com, funnyordie.com, jumpcut.com, myspace.com, superdeluxe.com, and vimeo.com. The Universal Binary requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. [Download - buy]

    gotta love

    Cocktail. That little guy cleans up a lot of minor issues I have when my machine is up for weeks, letting programs run faster and get more done. You'd be surprised how much junk, cache data, and logs Mac OS likes to save. This gives executes commands in a nice GUI wrapper that would normally take a terminal window. Not to mention there are settings open to your control that regular Mac OS would never let you touch.

    I've been using that little app through all their updates these last 4 years, and here's one satisfied customer endorsement.
