A canvas for developers
This week’s app roundup brings you an app that can paint with code—and one that can tell you just how sharp you’ll look in that brand new blazer.
Dress Assistant 5.1
The app provides a veritable treasure trove of teaching tools that make learning the ins and outs of harmonica-playing easy, and includes a number of annotated songs for all skill levels.
Some days, getting your life in order feels like a major accomplishment—which, perhaps, explains the name of Chronos’s $50 iTriumph.
The app helps you get a grip on your calendar and to-do list with a convenient month view that keeps all the information you need at your fingertips.
Mail Designer 2.0
Equinux’s $30 Mail Designer 2 (Mac App Store Link) features a wide range of templates you can use to build great-looking email messages for everything from party invitations to professional communication.
The app’s WYSIWYG interface makes designing HTML e-mail easy, and its output is compatible with the vast majority of mail clients.
The latest version of the software supports Swift, Apple’s new programming language, and introduces a number of sophisticated manipulation tools that make creating pixel-perfect images inside your source a cinch.
The app shows you data on memory and CPU usage, network status and connection, and so forth—a great tool to have if you’re an administrator and want to have an at-a-glance view of what’s going on with your computers.
Bits and bytes
Perhaps not the same as the real thing, but 3Planesoft’s $1 Sandy Beach 3D (Mac App Store Link) turns your desktop into a beautiful animated beach scene, adding a bit of sunshine to an otherwise dull workday.
And, speaking of beautiful vacation spots, Aidaluu’s $8 Travel iBlog (Mac App Store Link) is an app designed to help you document your adventure with text, pictures, and maps—wherever life may take you next.
