These days, everybody is a storyteller. But if you want to be effective spinning yarns in the 21st century, you need the right tools. So this roundup of six powerful Mac apps is a must-see for any modern storyteller.
This year is off to a stressful start for many people, making the awesome gear and gadgets we get into the Cult of Mac Store every week a welcome relief.
As March comes to an end, we’ve gathered some of the best deals we’ve seen this month. They include a massive bundle of top-shelf Mac apps; a set of extra-long, MFi-certified Lightning cables; a powerful tool for unlocking PDFs; and a lifetime of VPN protection. There’s something here for everybody!
You get three solid apps plus a ton of clip art (don’t think for a moment that you won’t need some clip art at some point) for $89. It’s a nice, and inexpensive, way to get a solid dev environment started.
I know it’s a slow news day and all. Not like anything was announced or anything…
Anyway, let’s talk Windows. Since we got BootCamp way, way back … and then Parallels and VMWare Fusion (and before that anyone remember the Orange cards you’d install to run Windows on a Mac?) Mac users have been trying to find the best way to run Windows apps on their Macs. Yeah we love our Macs, but sometimes we have to use a Windows app. Personally I’ve always gone the Parallels/VMWare route, I’ve tried Wine a couple times but it couldn’t run the apps I wanted/needed. Now there’s a commercialized version of Wine called Crossover XI and guess what? It’s part of a new bundle we’ve got!
We have another great bundle for you today. This bundle includes 8 great apps:
– PDF Editor Pro (edit and enhance your PDFs with optical character recognition.)
– CrossOverXI (run Windows applications on your Intel Mac.)
– Invoice 3 (create and manage your invoices.)
– Fantashow (making your own movie has never been easier)
– Logoist (create logos, title art, icons, banners, web site elements, greeting card headings and more.)
– iClip (get past the limitations of a single clipboard)
– Speed Download 5 (speed up your download times so you can get your assets faster.)
– My Living Desktop (monitor your Mac for possible security infringements.)
While all the apps are great there is one that stands out for me as the “killer app” for me: PDF Editor Pro. So what makes it great? Read on…
