The Tweetbot for Mac public Alpha has received a significant update today that packs several new features, including the ability to edit a profile. Borrowing from the popular iOS version of Tweetbot, users can now setup muted keywords on the Mac. Many of you will be happy to learn that animated support for .gif images (like these) have been baked into this version as well.

The latest Cult of Mac Deals offer delivers something that ensures you can create (and publish) your own professional-looking websites without having the skills of a professional web developer. That’s because MacFlux 4 makes it so easy – and we’re offering it for 50% off at just $50!
What is MacFlux 4?
MacFlux 4 is an advanced HTML5 website design application, capable of creating stunning sites completely from scratch. This powerful Mac web design software is a creative design environment rather than a template-based solution (although it does include free website templates to help get you started). And if you’d rather not create HTML5 websites, MacFlux 4 can handle standard HTML, PHP, Ruby, JSP, and more…no coding required.
Popular keyboard shortcut launcher Alfred has been updated with several new features and improvements. Version 1.3 of Alfred for Mac integrates with Apple’s Quick Look in OS X to let you see previews of files inside Alfred. A neat feature called file buffer gives you quick access to app and file placeholders above Alfred’s main search window.
The developers of Alfred have also added numerous other improvements and bug fixes in this 1.3 update. We’ve got the full change log.
Evernote had released a new update for its Mac app that brings stunning Retina graphics and a new feature called Activity Stream. Version 3.2 of Evernote for Mac is available now on the web and soon in the Mac App Store.
The new Activity Stream acts as a notification hub for your Evernote account that is automatically updated within the Mac app. This latest update from Evernote also includes a few other improvements.
The guys at Tapbots released the highly anticipated Tweetbot for Mac today with a catch. The app is available for free, but it’s in alpha form. This means that the developers are still working furiously to iron out the kinks and create the complete, public version. But for now, those who feel so inclined can download Tweetbot for Mac 0.6 and give it a go.
I’ve been playing around with the app, and for an alpha release, Tweetbot for Mac is very good. The app has already become my default Twitter client on the Mac for a few reasons.
The day has finally come. Tapbots has released its highly anticipated Tweetbot for Mac application. After releasing an acclaimed iPhone app in April of 2011 and a native iPad app back in February, Tweetbot for Mac is now available to complete the family… albeit in alpha form.
The new Twitter client comes with stunning graphics for the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, and the app’s design borrows heavily from the iOS interface. Tapbots designer Mark Jardine leaked a screenshot of the Mac app a few weeks ago. We’re all excited that it’s finally here!
There’s something about a really well-edited photo that just “pops”. And then there are the photos that have had creative filters applied and you just see the image in a whole new way. You know it’s not magic right? You know that all it takes is practice, the right image, and…the right software.
Sure, iPhoto is pretty good and Aperture is powerful, but neither of them are really designed for effects (or layering effects), which is where FX Photo Studio Pro comes in. Part of the Cult Of Mac Deals FX Photo Studio Pro is usually $40 in the Mac App Store, but you can get it for $20 now!
It’s June 1st, and that means Apple’s deadline for when Mac developers need to have their apps sandboxed has come to pass. After months and months of extending the deadline to iron out technical details, all apps submitted to the Mac App Store must now obey Apple’s sandboxing requirements. All existing Mac App Store apps cannot be updated until they meet the guidelines.
While sandboxing will mean safer and simpler Mac apps, there are some negative effects developers have to consider.
Fantastical is one of my favorite Mac apps. The handy calendar app sits in my menubar and manages my schedule like a personal secretary. The beauty of Fantastical is that, unlike iCal on the Mac, you can quickly add complex events to your calendar using natural, everyday language. “Lunch with John at 12 on Thursday” translates to an event titled “Lunch with John” that’s automatically scheduled for Thursday at noon.
Flexibits, maker of Fantastical, announced a nice update to the app today. Version 1.3 adds Reminders integration, allowing you to add and edit reminders on your Mac and have them synced via iCloud to your iOS devices.
A great app called Dropzone had a killer sale yesterday. The Mac app normally sells for $14 in the Mac App Store, but the developer decided to participate in Two Dollar Tuesday and drop the price of Dropzone to only $2.
After taking the gamble, Dropzone made an astounding $8,000 in one day. The dev says the money is “beyond my wildest dreams,” and this reinforces how profitable price cuts in the Mac App Store can be.
