The best software should combine the following characteristics: no tree organization: most information organizers are organized in a tree and oblige the user to begin by entering a note title or deciding where the note should be included.

Duet Display - Ex-Apple Engineers Turn Your iPad into a Second Display for your Mac Applenerd | Best reviews from Fans of Apple heresthethingblog Did you know that there’s more than one desktop on your Mac? Yep, it’s true—and in “Lion,” the just-released update for the Mac operating system, you can pretty much have as many desktops as you want, each filled with its own assortment of open documents and applications. Sound confusing? Once you get the hang of it, though, these additional desktop spaces—which you manage in Mac OS X Lion with a new feature, dubbed “Mission Control”—can become addicting, even essential. Once you get the hang of it, though, these additional desktop spaces—which you manage in Mac OS X Lion with a new feature, dubbed “Mission Control”—can become addicting, even essential. Indeed, when I switch to a PC running Windows, which doesn’t have built-in desktop “spaces” like the Mac does, the thought of having only one space for all my windows leaves me feeling cramped and claustrophobic. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. So, that’s the “what” and “how” of Mission Control’s desktop spaces—but what about the “why”?

You can listen to the episode at The Next Track website here or subscribe here in iTunes to make sure you get all future episodes. May 31 2017 - 3:38 pm I have just updated Delete Empty Playlists to v3.0. This latest version can, certainly, delete all the empty playlists it finds. Delete Empty Playlists is free to use with a donation nag and is available to download from this page. May 23 2017 - 7:54 pm Apple released iTunes just about a week ago. I believe this is the third time a release has been updated with a minor build shortly after its initial release. May 22 2017 - 12:00 pm It is possible that a recent change in the operating system may affect the ability to make an in-app donation in several scripts. I am working on updates.

Shawn Blanc The Best Mac Apps of 2012 So Far As you some of you may have seen, we recently asked our Twitter and Facebook followers to name their favorite Mac desktop apps of the year so far – thanks again to everyone who sent us suggestions. After a little in-house brainstorming, we took the decision to add a few apps that were released earlier than 2012, but have become very important in our lives this year. Here’s the full selection we came up with, from blockbusters to hidden gems. 1. If we live in the same universe, chances are it doesn’t need an introduction, but just in case: Angry Birds Space is the latest installment in the Angry Birds franchise, and one of our personal favorites. ➤ Angry Birds Space 2. While Snapseed was launched in 2011, it only became available in the Mac App Store last January. ➤ Snapseed 3. Limbo is a hauntingly beautiful black & white game, which you may also have tested in its Xbox 360 version before its Mac launch last Christmas. 4. ➤ Fantastical 5. ➤ Sparrow and Sparrow Lite 6. ➤ Coda 2 7. ➤ Trickster
