Civilization V adds support for the new Mac Pro, 4K resolution

Aspyr has released a new update for Civilization V, aimed at improving its performance on the newest Mac Pro. Allowing for 4K resolutions on supporting monitors while running into fewer crashes, Mac games that use the Mac Pro will now be able to take advantage of the machine's second video card. The updated game will automatically download and install for Steam users, and Mac app-version users can grab the update from the App Store. Civilization V and all of its DLC and expansions are currently 50 percent off, until March 27.

Tweetbot for Twitter releases version 1.5

Mac Twitter client Tweetbot for Twitter has received an update today. Tweetbot offers users multiple timelines, windows and columns, for simplified navigation. In v1.5, new features include more image thumbnail options in the display settings, as well as a new three-finger left and right swipe gesture in one's timeline function, depending on configuration. Also included are bug fixes with layout issues and highlighting errors on some context menus. Tweetbot for OS X is available for download through the App Store for $20.
