iBetterCharge

leave a comment

iBetterCharge is a great little app that reminds you when your iOS device is running low on juice. Simple, free, and easy-to-use, it’s still in my Menubar today.

My review is at Macworld.com.

Briefly Review

leave a comment

Next up for me in Macworld’s Mac Gems fest, Briefly, a tool that helps you combine hundreds of sequential photos into a single stop-action video. While iPhoto offers the same capabilities, Briefly makes quick work of what might otherwise be a tedious project.

SnapNDrag Pro Review

leave a comment

Not 100% sure on this yet, but SnapNDrag Pro may become my new go-to screen capture app. Simple and intuitive, it also offers annotation traction. Pretty slick app overall. My Macworld review, and my first entry in this year’s Macworld Gem Fest, here.

QuickBooks app for Mac Review

leave a comment

My new review of Intuit’s QuickBooks app for Mac is now live at Macworld.com.

QuickBooks app for Mac is a standalone application that lets you manage your QuickBooks Online account using an app on your Mac rather than a Web browser, which is the way you’d normally manage QuickBooks Online. In terms of appearance, there is no difference between the online and app-based versions of QuickBooks Online, but in the future Intuit promises offline access to your QuickBooks Online data, which could be hugely beneficial.

If you’re using QuickBooks Online I highly recommend QuickBooks app for Mac.

Moneydance 2014 Review

leave a comment

My Moneydance review is up at Macworld.com. Nice little java-based Mac financial app that does a fine job of helping you harness your personal financial info. Not perfect, but still good.
