  • PopChar X 4.2 ($40) allows users to add special characters into application documents without the need to remember a keystroke combination. The update includes a new menu command that allows a user to mark all fonts that contain a desired character and then jump directly to the marked character in a favored font. Version 4.2 also includes several fixes, including one that cause PopChar to forget its license information when preferences were synced with MobileMe. [Download - 1.8MB]

  • Blackout 3.0 ($9) is a utility that can dim a screen regardless of the monitors current hardware or gamma settings. The application works by placing a transparent window over the desktop. The window provides the dimming effect and passes keystrokes and clicks through to underlying applications. The update includes two new display modes, Spotlight creates a circle of light which can follow the cursor or stay fixed on a specific area, and Soft Edges gradually fades the corners of the screen. Version 3.0 also includes several new customization options including a system-wide menu, a custom global hotkey setting, and color settings. [Download - 0.93MB]

  • Letter Opener 2.1 ($30) is a plugin for the Apple Mail application that converts winmail.dat files into more Mac friendly files. The software extracts information from the Outlook native file and converts schedules into iCal files, contacts into vCards, and nested messages and notes into documents. The 2.1 update is strictly a maintenance patch and addresses several minor bugs. [Download - 2.6MB]

  • iClip Lyrics 1.4 (free) searches for the lyrics of the song current playing in iTunes and adds them to the ID3 tag. If the application can't find the lyrics users can enter them manually edit them. Version 1.4 has been rewritten in Cocoa and includes performance improvements and small interface changes. It also includes a feature that automatically removes HTML tags from lyrics and can save the lyrics as a TXT or RTF file. [Download - 1.3MB]

  • Menubar Countdown 1.1 (free) is a countdown time that is displayed in the menubar. Users can specify how long to set the timer by hours, minutes and seconds and what alerts to display when the timer reaches zero. Users can select from an alert sound, window, customizable spoken text, or any combination of these three. In the new release the alert window is now displayed above all other application windows so that it wont be missed and a new application icon has been added. [Download - 0.76MB]
