Hands On: Screeny 1.5 (iOS)

07/21, 5:04pm

Could it be any more niche yet useful?

Clearly, not every app is for everyone. Usually you can see that an app is good, even if you know you'll never use it yourself. Just occasionally, though, you find one that makes you wonder if anyone at all would ever use it. This one we've found is Screeny 1.5 and the answer is yes. We would. We are now using it, and we're using it a lot, but all it does is find and remove screenshots from your iPhone and iPad.


Hands On: Smart Trash 2.0.0 (OS X)

07/13, 6:38am

Unexpectedly useful tool for emptying the trash

It's the OS X trash, and before that it was the MacOS trash. If you're outside the US your Mac might call it the wastebasket, it might not. Whatever label Apple gives it though, it's the place you dump files and folders you no longer want and it's the place where you delete them about one single ouch-second before realising you didn't mean to. There truly cannot be anything you could add to the trash after thirty years or more, not one single feature -- except there is. Cue Smart Trash 2.0.0 which has some honestly useful extras.

Chipmunk file comparison

German developer Ruotger Skupin today unveiled Chipmunk 1.0, an application designed to find, compare, and delete exact duplicate files. The application performs a byte-by-byte comparison of the suspected duplicates to verify whether it is a true duplicate. Skupin claims that Chipmunk is quickly able to process hundreds of megabytes worth of information quickly. Chipmunk is currently available at an Easter discount of $20, and is normally $25.
