Post Haste for OS X creates project template folders

A rather curious app crossed my desk this morning. Aimed at creatives who make complex project folders repeatedly, Post Haste (free) enables you to create named directory hierarchies over and over again.

Alfred 2.0 adds workflows, improves preferences, more

Alfred is one of my favorite Mac utilities (here's my review of version 1.0). After a long beta period, version 2.0 is now available. I've been using it throughout the beta period and I can say that it's a huge improvement over version 1.x. The new workflows are fantastic, the preferences are...

WaveJamr promises Bluetooth audio freedom, but delivers frustration

Update: The RadTech team has responded to this post (see comments below) and asked me to evaluate a more recent revision of the WaveJamr that resolves many compatibility issues. As soon as it arrives, I'll give it a try. No doubt, the idea of the US$39.95 WaveJamr audio adapter is a fine one....

Call Bliss for iPhone a would-be alternative to Do Not Disturb

Call Bliss for iPhone (US$2.99) from Clarke Hill is promoted as an alternative to Apple's Do Not Disturb feature. It would be handy to have this week, as Do Not Disturb is currently malfunctioning. While it works, I'm hesitant to recommend it. Here's my look at Call Bliss for iPhone. UI When...

Unclutter offers digital pockets for your OS X miscellany

I have really mixed feelings about Unclutter for OS X (US$2.99). On the one hand, it's a pretty cool idea. The app offers a pull-out "drawer" on your desktop that lets you store files, make notes, and view your clipboard. On the other, parts of the app are unintuitive to use and could stand some...

Korg microKEY-25 keyboard lets musicians practice and perform anywhere

Although the iPad was initially thought of as a media consumption device, it quickly became a popular tool for musicians on the run. And while a lot of musicians quickly got the hang of playing on virtual keyboards on the screen, many others opted to wait for "real" keyboards (aka MIDI keyboard...

Daily iPhone App: QatQi is a free word game that's different enough to try

QatQi is, I am almost sorry to say, a new word game on the App Store. To be quite honest, I'm tired of spelling things out on my iPad's screen. That's not to say that there aren't good word games out there. Spelltower and Puzzlejuice are two great recommendations, but it's easier than ever...

Algoriddim's vjay for iPhone puts video mixing in the palm of your hand

With the ridiculous number of photo manipulation apps available for the iPhone, it's sometimes easy to forget that Apple's smartphone can actually be a powerful video editing platform as well. Developer Algoriddim aims to prove this by bringing its popular iPad video mashup app, vjay, to the...

iHouseWatcher is a great idea with flawed execution

iHouseWatcher is a free, 4 channel house monitor that that's ready to work with a Mac or PC with a webcam, or an iOS device you're willing to leave at home. I downloaded the universal app to my iPad and my iPhone. After creating a free account, I identified my iPad up as the camera, left the...

Note Anytime helps make notes easy and elegant

There are quite a few note-taking apps for the iPad, but I have to say Note Anytime has features that are compelling. Notes can be as simple as writing on a legal pad, or more complex with images, hand-drawn illustrations, diagrams and documents that can be helpful in anything from project...
