KIT Reviewed on Surfbits and MacReviewCast

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007

Keep It Together has received a great review on Surfbits and will feature on MacReviewCast #98 this weekend.

This is one of those tools that has a TON of cool features and capabilities that you can love even if you don’t use all of it.

I didn’t know in advance, but the review was actually done by Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast – a “technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Macintosh bias”. Allison is actually a registered user of both my products, I know her in particular as an enthusiastic Feeder user.

NosillaCast stands out by being quite varied in nature with lots of original content ideas, so it’s always interesting. Allison is also quite brave at doing her own experiments with technology and her friendly style makes the podcast easy listening. Check it out.

Feeder on MacBreak Weekly

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

MacBreak WeeklyFeeder gets a very favourable mention on MacBreak Weekly 31 by Merlin Mann, whose recommendation was echoed by Leo Laporte, who uses Feeder for the TWiT podcast feeds.

If you need to do anything with making an RSS feed, Feeder is going to make it very easy for you […] Fantastic application, I bought it in a minute.

KIT on NeatLittleMacApps Podcast

Monday, August 28th, 2006

NeatLittleMacApps LogoKIT is reviewed on this week’s NeatLittleMacApps podcast with Frank de Graeve. If you’re currently experiencing a mild case of deja vu, that’s because you may recall Feeder reviewed on the same podcast not too long ago.

Don’t think this is some cliquey arrangement with Frank whereby he reviews both my apps; Frank told me he went looking for such an app and wound up back here, at Reinvented Software. 😀

It’s another good review, Frank gives KIT quite a good going over and really gets the app. Frank always gives some developer feedback, in this case he first finds a bug creating a new library (not sure when this popped up, I’ll get it fixed soon!) and also wants KIT to search inside files.

KIT actually does that with as many file types as Spotlight can index – you choose All Contents from the search menu – so I guess I need to make that clearer and add an option to only search the contents. Oh well!

Search KIT files

Also, if you listen to the podcast, there’s a chance to win one of three free copies and a special discount code (which is quite funny) if you don’t. In fact, just about every episode lately has had free copies or some special deal. NeatLittleMacApps is a neat little podcast that quickly showcases a different app each week and Frank’s easy style and warm sense of humour make it a pleasure. Check it out and tell all your friends! 😉

Sounds like NLMA is doing well in the iTunes Technology Top 100 also, so keep it up, Frank, and good luck with building that house!

Feeder on NeatLittleMacApps Podcast

Sunday, July 16th, 2006

Feeder is reviewed on Episode 6 of the NeatLittleMacApps podcast with Frank De Graeve. Each episode of the NeatLittleMacApps podcast features a single application, gives an overview of their capabilities, a quick walkthrough and usually some special offers and/or prizes too.

NeatLittleMacApps LogoIn the beginning there was nothing…

No wait, there was something. There was an RSS-feed creation tool called Feeder. And then there was podcasting.

Ok now combine this with a developer who updates his software so fast that he must be psychic, and you get probably the best and most used podcast/rss-feed creating App out there.

Thanks, Frank! For every app Frank reviews, he gives a developer tip such as a feature request, something he thinks is not quite right or whatever.

I won’t spoil the podcast by revealing that here, but I will say: yes, that is becoming one of the most requested features for Feeder, something like that is coming and you might be pleasantly surprised at how it works out.

It’s a great review of Feeder, check it out as there is also the chance to win some free copies and a promotional code. 🙂

ScreenCastsFullTime

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

It’s great to hear that Don McAllister is quitting his job at a corporate IT firm to focus on ScreenCastsOnline and his new EuroMac Podcast full time.

ScreenCastsOnline is an innovative video podcast that shows you how to use your Mac to its full potential. Each week Don guides you through something new, whether it’s using RapidWeaver or how to get the best out of .Mac, and you can watch how it’s done on your screen or iPod.

Don has found that it takes a lot of hard work to create and maintain the show and that if he wants to take it to the next level and have any kind of work/life balance, he needs to do it full time. I fully understand!

To achieve this Don is now adding Extra! subscriptions that provide exclusive premium content, the ScreenCastsOnline DVD, high definition versions, ad-free shows, monthly newsletters and much more. Check it all out at ScreenCastsOnline.

Best wishes and congratulations to Don for making the jump!

Update: Great to hear Don on DSC #359 and Adam being so encouraging about Don’s plans.
