... plus easy backups, window management, and more!
In this week’s roundup of new Mac apps, we bring you tools that help you organize your desktop, keep your data safe, and safely manage and share all of your photos.
Backup To Go 1.2
This easy-to-use (and free!) app lets you synchronize files from your hard drive to external storage (like, say, a USB stick) as a handy way to save important information and make it mobile. A $4 in-app purchase unlocks additional features, like notifications and the ability to find and recover deleted files.
This free app brings thousands of beautiful backgrounds from all around the Internet directly to your desktop, and can be set to automatically rotate them on a time schedule for an ever-changing view of the world around you.
The app works on any kind of photo without the need for special processing, and can produce output in a variety of styles and textures.
The app tracks images as they are added to your hard drive, filters them through a set of criteria of your choosing, and allows you to quickly find and share them with your friends and colleagues.
Reference Tracker 2.5
The app sits quietly in the background until you call upon it, at which point it lets you grab a portion (or all) of your screen, annotate and filter it, and share it through email or text, with the option to encrypt it and even make it self-destruct after a preset number of views or period of time.
Tick Task 1.0
Everyday Tools’s $2 Tick Task helps you organize a hectic day by creating a structure around your tasks work routine.
With this app, you can plan your entire day, and break out individual to-dos into discrete chunks of time that incorporate breaks and “me time.” Tick Task tracks everything for you and even offers a handy set of statistics that show you where your time goes.
