After 14 years, the "Preview Kid" on OS X's Preview icon is no more

Earlier this week we covered many of the new icons users can look forward to in OS X Yosemite. As opposed to iOS 7, the iconography in Yosemite is rather impressive. Instead of blindly adhering to a flat design aesthetic, OS X Yosemite's icons appear a bit more nuanced and elegant, seemingly an in...

Mac 101: How to move pages between PDF documents using Preview

Preview is often overlooked by users who have yet to delve into the many features of the OS X app. Its name, "Preview," suggests it is only a document viewer, but it has editing capabilities that allow you do much more than merely read a file. One useful feature is the ability to move pages fro...

A PDF alignment trick so perfect, you'll wish you'd thought of it yourself

When reading a PDF document in Preview, you may have discovered how hard it is to hand-adjust a page's zoom and contents to provide a page-at-a-time display. The screenshot to the right shows how there's almost always either clipping or a bit of the next page to worry about. Don't work so hard to...

Sneak preview: InstaWeather Pro 3.5 lets you share photos of your weather

Those of you who have read TUAW for more than just a little while know that I'm kind of a weather buff -- I have way too many weather apps on my iPhone and iPad, and even have not one, but two "connected" weather stations at my house. So it was not surprising for me to fall in love with InstaWeath...

How do I dislike iBooks for OS X? Let me count the ways...

I banged the drums for OS X iBooks for years. Now, finally, Apple delivered. OS X Mavericks includes a desktop version of Apple's signature e-book-reading app. And after finally getting the iBooks I asked for, I've discovered that it's sadly not the iBooks I wanted. If anything, the desktop iBooks ...

Friday Favorite: Yet another reason to love Printopia

I'm a huge fan of Ecamm's Printopia utility. For just 20 bucks, it enables you to print from iOS to any printer connected to your Mac. You don't need to buy a high-priced AirPlay-enabled system. I'm running Printopia with an old piece-of-junk Brother laser printer that is older than some of my kid...

Preview, sips, and more: OS X image processing tools

On a recent trip, I found I had failed to add copies of my auto-resizing drop tools to my travel MacBook Air. My droplets allow me to convert images to TUAW-standard sizes, namely 225 pixels for small images and 456 pixels for banner images. (See? Information you never thought you'd need to know.)...

Road Not Taken is coming soon from Triple Town's creators

Triple Town is one of my favorite games on iOS over the past few years -- it's a puzzle game with a simple ruleset and a whole lot of complexity. The creator of that game, called Spry Fox, has announced a new title in development called Road Not Taken, and you can now see some concept art from it ...

Wonderputt creator Reece Millidge talks about the upcoming, beautiful Icycle: On Thin Ice

I saw the upcoming iOS game Icycle: On Thin Ice back at GDC, and I think it was the best game (out of maybe fifty or more) that I saw that week. Reece Millidge is an animator and game developer based in Britain, and I first came across his work while playing the Flash version of an abstract putt...

Hands on with NimbleBit's next title, Nimble Quest

I am a huge fan, as you may already know, of the two brothers behind NimbleBit and all of their work, from the earlier titles like Scoops and DizzyPad to the much larger freemium hits they've had like Tiny Tower and Pocket Planes. The last time I talked to either of the Marsh brothers in person...

Simogo's latest, Year Walk, coming to iOS next week

Simogo is an iOS developer best known for games that are cartoony and fun, like the great Beat Sneak Bandit and the charming Bumpy Road. But the company's next title is going to take a much darker turn, apparently. Year Walk is Simogo's next project, and as you can see above, this game looks ne...
