At the desk
In this week’s roundup, you’ll find a few apps designed to help you ease back into your school days, whether being a student is your full-time job or just a part of it.
If you’re a developer who has to deal with that most heinous form of torture known as Web-based issue tracking systems, Neat.io’s $30 Bee could be the source of some much-needed respite.
The app is a full-fledged native client for several popular bug-tracking systems, including Jira, FogBugz, and GitHub—and also doubles as a convenient Markdown editor.
Developer Margaret Burke’s $1 GraphPaperGenerator gives you a handy way to quickly create graph paper in a variety of formats and output it directly to any printer connected to your Mac.
The app allows you choose from several standard paper formats, or specify your own grid measurements and pick the colors of the lines printed on the paper.
Just in time for school to begin, ZenithLab’s $4 Perioden is a full-fledged periodic table of the elements for your Mac.
The app allows you to explore every element in detail, providing a handy reference for would-be (and actual) chemists.
ZeoSpace is a free app that allows you to instantly and safely share files with your friends and colleagues.
The free app sits quietly in the menu until called upon, at which point it assigns unique URLs to the files that you drop on its icon and uploads them to a secure server in the background.
Bits and bytes
HappenApps’s $10 Quiver is a note-taking app designed for developers that lets you quickly record code snippets in any language and associate arbitrary information with them.
