  • Now Boarding 1.2 ($15) is an airport management game that places gamers in charge of a major airport. The players challenge is to reorganize a poorly managed airport and get passengers to their desired locations. Players can enhance their airports by purchasing larger and exotic aircraft, renovating the terminal, adding shops and restaurants, and changing their employees. If they are successful with their first airport they can expand to new cites to try and manage multiple airports to increase overall profits. The latest release has introduced a new map, The Caribbean, which features several large cites, a few small island villages and hurricane threats. The game also now provides feedback at the end of each month on which cites are expanding and which are shrinking. [Download - 12.9MB]

  • ReelNQ 1.0 ($20) is a tool for converting batches of video files to other formats. Videos can be converted to formats that have been optimized for the iPhone, iPods, the Apple TV, or Quicktime. Users can choose to covert each film to any number of these formats in the same process and can configure separate location target folders for exported movies, or retain original locations.

  • TinkerTool System 1.9 ($10) gives users access to additional system preference settings Apple has built into Mac OS X. This utility allows users to run the periodic system maintenance scripts at any time, reset the permission settings of Mac OS X files, clean up cache files of the Internet browsers, and more. Version 1.9 has revised the included features to work properly with Mac OS X 10.5 and update the info pane to support the latest Apple hardware models. The update also address several problems such as one that caused notification messages to display incorrectly. [Download - 2.4MB]

  • DupScan 2.4 (free) allows users to search in specified folders for duplicate files. The software compares not only file names but also contents, date modified, etc. In the new version a file can be opened by double clicking on the preview item in the drawer and the window size and/or location is automatically adjusted when the drawer is opened or closed. The update also adds new application and document icons. [Download - 1MB]

  • Smart Scroll 3.0 ($19) allows users to customize how the scroll feature functions on their Mac. The software includes a Super Scroll mode which simulates iPhone scrolling, a Hover Scroll mode which allows users to scroll by hovering the curser at the top or bottom of a window, and a Grab Scroll which allows users to grab a window and flick it to scroll. Version 3.0 has added new trigger options for Grab Scroll, a new Preference pane, support for Mac OS X 10.5.7 and Safari 4, and a new "Lift fingers to coast" trackpad option for Super Scroll.
