These icons are available in various colors and resolutions (including Retina), and allow you to add a touch of personality to your OmniFocus custom perspectives. Once installed on your Mac, they will sync to the…

Phone Clean for Mac — Free Up Space on iOS

I recently looked at my iPhone’s usage statistics and noticed Spotify was using 1.1 GB. For an app that is supposed to be about streaming music—I don’t download anything locally—that seemed like a lot. I’ve run into this situation before. Over time, Dropbox and Google Drive can grow to 800-900 MB without much effort. I used to deal with this by deleting…

Stache for Mac and iOS

My day-to-day bookmarking needs are already covered by Pinboard (and happily so), but I must say Stache is an interesting alternative. It’s a brand-new bookmarking app for the Mac that makes it easy to archive entire webpages and find them again later. Unlike Pinboard, which is displayed as a simple list of links, Stache takes a more visual approach by attaching a…

Notifyr

Notifyr is a new app that pushes notifications from your iPhone to your Mac. If you’re working from your Mac with your iPhone in a pocket or nearby bag, you no longer have to worry about missing out on anything. It works with notifications from any iOS app, and the free Mac client is compatible with these machines: The iPhone app is…

Transistor for PS4 and PC

From the makers of the ever-popular Bastion comes the new game Transistor, a sci-fi themed action-RPG with lush graphics and an awesome soundtrack. You can watch the reveal trailer and the launch trailer to see the game in action, both of which are way better than me trying to describe it. Transistor is available for $20 on the PS4 and on Steam…

Sketch 3 for Mac

If there’s one tool digital designers love to hate, it’s Photoshop. It’s ideal for editing photos and creating complex graphics, but not so much for designing user interfaces. Sketch is a Mac app specifically designed for building UIs, icons, CSS-friendly web elements, and much more. Today, Sketch updated to version 3, bringing all sorts of new features with it such as “Symbols”,…

1Password — Easy Password Management

It’s been over a year since we last mentioned 1Password on T&T. Given the recent discovery of the Heartbleed SSL bug that has people all over the internet changing their passwords, now seems a good time to remind everyone why 1Password is awesome. Rather than memorizing a bunch of different, complicated passwords, most people opt to use a single login for everything.…

Deckset for Mac

Deckset is a Mac app for making slide presentations with Markdown. Compose your thoughts in your favorite text editor, send them to Deckset, and it uses one of several themes to give your words a little flair. Deckset recognizes Markdown formatting for headers, code (with automatic syntax highlighting!), blockquotes, and more. You can also add photos and videos to your slides. It…

Instashare — Better AirDrop for iOS and Mac

Instashare is yet another file-sharing app for iOS and Mac. You can send photos, PDFs, and more, all over a local Bluetooth connection (no WiFi or login necessary). The nice part is that the sharing goes both ways; it’s not just Mac-to-iOS, but also vice-versa. It’s all done via drag-and-drop—about as simple as it gets. The universal iOS app is free (with…

Scribe — Copy/Paste from Mac to iOS

I recently linked to an app called Command-C that allowed you to copy and paste between Mac and iOS devices. It’s an awesome thing to have, with one caveat: it won’t work on any WiFi networks where multicast has been disabled, and thus, Bonjour connectivity (which is the case at my local coffee shop). In those cases, your devices won’t see one…

Command-C — Clipboard Sharing App for OS X and iOS

Thanks to a review by Federico Viticci, I got to hear about an awesome app for Mac and iOS called Command-C. It allows you to push the contents of your clipboard between devices over a local network. Thanks to the backgrounding features of iOS 7, you can share between an iPhone and iPad without even having to open the app on the…

Eastgate’s WinterFest 2013

Eastgate, the folks behind note-organization app Tinderbox, have put on a winter holiday sale featuring several awesome writing apps for the Mac. The sale includes Tinderbox itself, Scrivener, Scapple, DEVONthink Pro, and Nisus Writer Pro. In each case, you can use the promo code WINTERFEST2013 to get 25% off the normal price. These are some great apps for writers (especially Scrivener) so…

Writer Pro for Mac and iOS

Sometimes a new writing app comes out that has everybody talking about it for a while. Right now, Writer Pro, the successor to the ever-popular iA Writer, is the new hotness. This app is designed around the four basic stages of any writer’s workflow – note-taking, writing, editing, and reading – each of which is represented by a different typeface and color.…

MarkDrop

MarkDrop is a new text editor for Mac OS X (10.8 and above) that combines Markdown with Droplr for easy sharing and storage. The left pane, with its monospaced text and format-highlighting, is where you’ll do your writing. The right hand pane provides a real-time preview of your Markdown output. Once you’ve composed something in MarkDrop, it can be saved directly to…

AppViz 3

AppViz is a popular sales-tracking tool for iOS developers that I believe dates back to 2009. Yesterday, The Iconfactory announced AppViz 3, the latest and greatest iteration of the service yet. The Mac app has been completely redesigned, with easy-to-understand graphs and statistics about how your apps are doing on the App Store. You can monitor in-app purchases, read reviews of your…

Marked 2 for Mac

Brett Terpstra’s awesome Markdown-preview app for Mac, Marked, has been updated to version 2. For those who don’t already know, Marked acts like a sort of extension for any Mac text editor, allowing you to preview your Markdown-formatted plain text in its rich-formatted state, every time you save your document. The preview can be customized to look however you like, even as…

VSCO Film 01

The wonderful folks at VSCO, makers of VSCO Cam for iOS, have released an update to their VSCO Film 01 preset suite for Lightroom 4 & 5 and Adobe Camera Raw 7 & 8. This update adds support for pro-level Sony, Olympus and Leica cameras, in addition to their previous support for Fuji, Canon and Nikon rigs. To celebrate the occasion, they’re…

Coffitivity

Some people like to work in an office, while others – like myself – are at our creative best in a comfortable environment like a coffee shop. For those of us in the latter camp, Coffitivity is an excellent app for Mac, iOS, and the web that recreates the acoustic experience of working in a bustling coffee shop. Choose one of three…

Downcast for Mac

Downcast has long been one of the most popular “podcatcher” apps for iOS (I’m more of an Instacast guy myself, but the fact remains). If you’ve been wishing for a Mac version of Downcast, you’re in luck because it just released today. It’s got all the features you’d expect, such as subscription management, importing and exporting of OPML files, auto-updating schedules, smart…

Ember for Mac

Ember is a brand-new Mac App that wants to be your digital scrapbook. It’s a beautiful app made by the same guys who made the Clear to-do list app for Mac and iOS. Even the icon is gorgeous. Browse the web, subscribe to websites, save and share images, annotate those images, post to Tumblr, and generally keep all your favorite stuff from…
