Presentations, gardening, and New Year's resolutions
The holidays are nearly here, as is a new helping of great apps for your Mac. In this week’s roundup, you’ll find tools for everything from making beautiful presentations to rendering great pictures—with a little chemistry thrown in for good measure.
Daydream Doodler Pro 3.0.0
The app’s latest release offers a simplified interface that keeps its many options conveniently at your fingertips, supports layers, and can keep multiple “work in progress” drawings in memory.
FlowVella is compatible with most common file formats, and makes sharing your work over e-mail or social media a cinch.
Garden Planner 3.2.24
The app offers a simple interface that includes most common backyard furniture, in addition to a variety of shrubs, flowers, and vegetables that you can place just about anywhere.
Now that OS X can make phone calls through your iPhone, you’ll want to take a look at Eytan Schulman & Harrison Weinerman’s $1 Keypad (Mac App Store Link), which allows you to dial and call arbitrary numbers, even if they are not in your Contacts.
The app sports a simple user interface that works just like a traditional phone, and can even be used to dial directly from Notification Center.
Weight Tracker Pro 1.0
The app supports multiple users, can work both in imperial and metric units, and can even illustrate just how badly you’ve missed your New Year's resolution mark with a series of beautifully damning graphs.
