Omaha, Neb.-based developer
introduced three new applications on Thursday: the CD- and DVD-burning utility
MacBurn; a five-pack of applications called
MoreMacFonts, which expands the number of fonts offered in their MacFonts compilation. They will be available on April 2 with a US$29.99 price tag each.
MacBurn offers the ability to burn data to CDs and DVDs as well as audio tracks to CDs. You can use it to burn mixed audio and data to CDs, create “Burn Lists” for later use, cull tracks from multiple audio CDs to one compilation CD, erase such rewriteable media as CD-RWs, and make discs readable on Macs or PCs. It supports file formats including MP3, MOV, WAV, AIFF, MPEG, and others, and it’s compatible with all CD and DVD burners that work with iTunes and the Finder.
In addition, Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther” owners can employ MacBurn to create ISO and DMG disc images. The minimum OS requirement is Mac OS X v10.2.6 “Jaguar.
MacPac features five applications: FontManager, which allows you to preview, install, and activate or deactivate fonts; RadicalPhoto, which lets you modify the contrast and brightness, add effects such as motion blur, and perform other changes to digital photos before exporting them into the format of your choice; RadicalSqueeze, which compresses files for back-up or transfer and supports the Zip and Tar formats; AppSwitch, which allows you to quickly switch between running applications; and MacCabinet, which offers a place to store miscellaneous files, including downloads, and keep your desktop clean.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.6 “Jaguar” or higher, 256MB RAM, and 20MB free hard drive space.
Finally, MoreMacFonts features 750 TrueType fonts, including traditional ones aimed at business use, ornate ones for adding flair to promotional materials and greeting cards, and elegant fonts that bring a touch of style to invitations, stationary, logos, and other personal projects. They all offer full font families and character sets.
The application also comes with the FontManager utility found in MacPac and the original MacFonts compilation. It’s been updated from the one included with MacFonts, however, with the addition of a preview pane that allows you to type in text and alter the font color, style, and size to see how it looks before you apply it in a document.
System requirements are Mac OS X v10.x or higher, 256MB RAM, and 8MB free hard drive space.
