CV Maker 1.2

Individual Software’s $20 CV Maker (Mac App Store Link) helps you build a killer résumé, complete with all the proper information you’ll need to land your next big job.

Market Hub 1.0

Avar’s $10 Market Hub (Mac App Store Link) wants to be, er, your hub for financial information of all kinds, such as stock prices, historical charts, and news.

You can set the app to track, in real time, your personal portfolio of all kinds of securities, including bonds, commodities, futures—and, of course, stocks on all major exchanges.

oncue2
OnCue 2.1

As the saying goes, even the paranoid have enemies, and EggDevil’s $30 onCue2 (Mac App Store Link) is built with the idea of letting you keep an eye on things when you're not around.

The app uses your camera as a motion-detection sensor, recording both video and audio when it senses movement within its range and then either storing it for later viewing, or sending it to your iPhone and iPad securely over the Interent.

onenote
OneNote 15.0.1

Microsoft’s free OneNote (Mac App Store Link) app has finally made its way to the Mac, with a rich client that supports all of the tech giant’s services natively.

As Macworld’s Jeffery Battersby noted in his first look at the app, OneNote lets you and your teammates collaboratively create and manage “notebooks” of documents stored in the cloud, and features support for rich media like images, videos, and more.

outline
Outline 2.2

Speaking of notebooks, Gorillized’s $20 Outline (Mac App Store Link) helps you organize all your notes in a single location, as well as attach media to them.

Notes created with the app can be password-protected for maximum security, shared with your friends, and even synchronized with the app’s $4 iPad counterpart or Microsoft’s OneNote cloud platform.

photosupreme
Photo Supreme 2.0.4

IDimager’s $80 Photo Supreme (Mac App Store Link) is branded as “the most powerful photo manager on the market,” and with good reason: According to the manufacturer, it can easily handle photo libraries that contain hundreds of thousands of images.

Images are catalogued using a wide range of parameters, both automatic and manually-configurable, that can all be used to search. The app also features several editing and sharing capabilities.

songbook
Songbook 1.9

LinkeSOFT’s $15 SongBook keeps track of all your favorite songs and their chord tablatures.

Songs can be typed in using a simple Markdown-like language that makes quick work of adding (and visualizing) chords and splitting a song into verses, bridges, and choruses.

weatherwall
WeatherWall 1.0

WeatherWary’s $100 WeatherWall is designed to bring up-to-the-minute data to the serious weather enthusiast’s desktop.

It comes with support for a wide range of weather imagery, including radar, wind maps, temperature reports, and weather warnings.
