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.

My review of iBank 5 is now up at Macworld.com.
I don’t use anything like this to manage my finances anymore, but if I did, iBank 5 would be the ticket. Great application.
My review of VIPOrbit is up at Macworld.com.
Great little app created in part by one of the original developers of ACT!. While it’s definitely a first gen product, meaning I saw a few glitches here and there, overall it’s a fantastic app that, as it grows, should become an amazing tool for managing your relationships. I highly recommend it.
My review of QuickBooks 2014 for Mac is now up at Macworld.com.
This, sadly, is still the same-old same-old from Intuit. It’s not a bad product, it just doesn’t add anything of super-duper value to the product.
And nope… no file level compatibility with the Windows product… Although it is a little better at getting your accountant’s changes updated to your live data without having to send the entire data file back and forth between you and your accountant.
I found the iCloud beta to be pretty impressive. While it may not satisfy everyone, it’s going to be a boon to iOS users who don’t own a Mac as well as the occasional student who needs to make document or presentation edits at schools where Macs are not the standard computing platform.
Overall, a great set of Web-based apps. I highly recommend that you give them a try.
My review of Office 365 for iOS is up at Macworld.com.
Sad to say… not much there.
My review of iBank for iPad is now up at Macworld.com. I really like this app and it’s probably the time I’ve felt like a personal finance app for iOS held its own against similar apps on the Web or designed for your Mac.
On another note, you may also have missed my Macworld First Look at Office for iPhone. Not exactly a stellar app, but if you’re desperate, Office for iPhone just may offer you options in a pinch.
