Tumblr is easy to use and customize, feature-rich, and offers a lot of latitude for posts and pictures.
As a blogging tool, TypePad might appeal to almost anybody. But it likely has the most to offer users who take blogging seriously as a venue for personal publishing, as a means to promote businesses, or even as a way to make money.
A year after the release of the FileMaker 10 database program, version 11 has arrived, with new tools and great new features that make it even easier to use.
If you want to organize and record your thoughts, have them all in one place, and keep them private, there's nothing better on the Mac than MacJournal.
For an awful lot of users, including users with advanced document-production needs, Nisus Writer Pro is a solid and very satisfactory alternative to Word.
Basic word processor features an elegant user interface.
Do you outline your thank-you notes, number (and then renumber) the items on your shopping lists, or use footnotes in e-mail? Then Mellel is probably the word processor for you. Writers of long technical documents will love the control that Mellel offers over outlines, cross-references, footnotes, table of contents generation, figures, and more.
There’s something for everyone in the latest version of the Mac’s most popular database tool. Thanks to the changes in FileMaker 10, developers can now be more responsive to user actions, while users can now customize certain aspects of the database without having to call in a developer.
FileMaker unveiled new versions of its flagship database product. After taking a look at FileMaker 10, William Porter thinks the upgrade offers lots of gain and almost no pain for developers and end-users alike.
FileMaker’s personal database app boasts a number of significant improvements in this new version, including better data import and export, enhancements to the spreadsheet-like table view, and on-the-fly customization of forms. Because of those changes, Bento has matured into a very useful application.
While the calendar-oriented person can’t be in two places at once, the task-oriented person could well be working on three (or 13) projects simultaneously. For the task-oriented person, 80 percent of success is managing competing demands on time, and you may need more power and flexibility than iCal’s to-do list provides.
For the price, and for most users, there is no better calendar application and calendaring system for the Mac OS. It's a bit weak in the task-management department, but even business users may now find that iCal can manage everybody's calendars easily, effectively, and economically.
If you use Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client, or if you need to access a calendar on a server from different computers running different operating systems, or if you need a bit more help than iCal provides for managing your tasks, Sunbird is definitely worth a look. And Sunbird is free.
Now at version 1.5.7, GyazMail’s price hasn’t changed in three years (it’s still $18), which is very good indeed. Unfortunately, though, not much else about GyazMail has changed either.
It doesn't integrate with Mac OS X as well as Apple's Mail, but Mozilla's Thunderbird is a very capable e-mail client. Thunderbird's support for tags makes it easy to organize the hundreds of emails in your mailbox.
