Simple solution for music, audio, even photos and movies
We've written some Pointers entries previously about iTunes -- frequently, in fact -- and that's mainly because in addition to be a vast program that does a lot of different things -- on top of the syncing and the playlisting and the jukeboxing and the app or media purchasing and the podcast listening and the movie watching and now the Apple Music subscribing -- it also has a fair few features under the hood that tend to get underused when they are even known about. Today, you'll uncover another one.
Omni Group updates
The Omni Group has released OmniGraffle 5.0rc1 and OmniOutliner 3.6.5. OmniGraffle 5.0rc1 is the latest beta release of the company's diagram creation software that refines AppleScript support for user data on models as well as graphics. OmniOutliner 3 is an update to the program for creating, collecting, and organizing information. OmniGraffle is priced at $80 for the standard edition and $150 for the professional version, with upgrades starting at $30. OmniOutliner is available in standard and professional versions for $40 and $70, respectively, while upgrades start from $20. OmniGraffle 5.0rc1 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and OmniOutliner 3.6.5 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
Yojimbo 1.5 update
Bare Bones Software has released the v1.5 update for Yojimbo, its data and information organizing software. The app supports both The Missing Sync and .Mac Sync, and can incorporate material ranging from serial numbers and passwords through to text documents and PDF files. New to v1.5 is image support, letting users keep photos handy, or use them as a visual reminder. Yojimbo now also has improved search and filtering performance, partly due to the indexing of additional terms for Spotlight, such as tags.
