Tools for developers, designers, and more
This week’s roundup of new Mac apps brings you a selection of apps that help developers measure twice and market once, designers manager their assets, and everyone else add a little bit of reflection to their photos.
Be more productive with Justin Mitchell and Jaden Geller’s HeliumLift, an app that places a translucent browser right on top of your desktop.
The browser is designed to be visible without interfering with your other apps, and can be used in conjunction with a free extension for Google Chrome.
The app supports several different diagram styles, including GANTT and flow charts, and even allows you to export your work to an interactive HTML format that can be easily published on the Web or sent to others via e-mail.
KeyFlow Pro 1.0.1
The app supports a variety of media types, including many image and video formats, supports customized editing workflows, and makes sharing assets with coworkers a breeze.
Pixel Winch 1.0
Instead of relying on complicated screen overlays, the app allows you to “grab” a portion of your screen and display it in a more traditional graphical editing interface, where sophisticated algorithms visually measure the width and height of every individual feature—a perfect tool for designers and developers alike.
Radar Extreme 1.0.2
The app allows you to examine both local and global weather radar reports from anywhere in the world—including sites that track lightning strikes—and superimpose their content with realtime local weather reports.
Reflect Studio 1.0
A great tool for all developers, Daft Logic Studio’s $2 StoreView (Mac App Store Link) helps you perfect your marketing message by rendering a copy of your app’s page as it appears in the App Store—before you actually publish it.
StoreView supports unlimited previews, offers fully-interactive renderings, and even allows you to import metadata from existing apps for a more streamlined experience.
Swift Note 2.0.1
The app allows you to create notes on your screen (and on your Today panel) that you can customize and fill to your liking. A special time-travel feature then allows you to review their contents as they have changed over time.
TurboCollage Lite 6.0.1
All you need to do is feed the app a selection of photos, and watch it do its magic as it produces a beautiful rendering that you can customize to your heart’s desire—even adding your own captions and layout.
