Keep It for Mac 30% off for Club MacStories members

Saturday, September 15th, 2018

Keep It for Mac is 30% off for Club MacStories members until September 28, along with a host of other apps and services, in celebration of its third anniversary.

Club MacStories is written by true enthusiasts, and stands out in an age where you can read the same press releases regurgitated on countless sites, often verbatim, but trustworthy reviews and in-depth looks at apps and technologies are rare, as the ad revenue and affiliate payments that once paid for such content dries up.

Supporting such sites is vital, not only for their survival, but for the survival of independent app developers who fill the gaps that big players simply don’t care about, and who listen to their customers and respond. 

Check out all the perks of membership, and the sample issue of MacStories Weekly, on the Club MacStories web page.

The Hit List 1.0

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

The Hit List iconAndy Kim has finally announced the release of the final version of The Hit List 1.0 for Mac, and The Hit List Sync Service, with The Hit List for iPhone awaiting Apple’s approval.

I’ve been helping to test all these of these for the last six months, and I can say that it’s truly worth the wait.

Too often with Mac apps that have iOS counterparts, something is released that turns out to be a disappointment. Not so with these two apps and the incredible sync service that ties them both together, providing seamless over-the-air syncing for THL between your Macs and iPhone no matter where you or they are.

What Andy has done is not only created an amazing Mac app, but a just-as-amazing phone app and an incredible sync service to tie them all together. This is a gargantuan task for a single developer, one that could not have been estimated, but the result is sweet because it just works so well.

Reinvented Software in the Mac App Store

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Feeder and Poster are on Mac App Store for its launch today. Together requires more changes than those two apps and should follow in a couple of weeks, provided it is accepted and depending on how long the review process will take.


Poster IconPoster is now $9.99. The version on the Mac App Store is identical in its functionality, however it will not offer to install export plug-ins for Aperture or iPhoto, as installing additional software is prohibited. Versions of the plug-ins are available for download from my site. These new versions of the plug-ins will check for updated versions as those cannot be delivered through the main app. On the price drop, existing customers will be refunded the difference.


Feeder IconFeeder is on the Mac App Store with its price unchanged. This version is almost identical to the regular version with the exception that it will not offer to wake your Mac from sleep for scheduled publishing, because that requires admin privileges, which is also prohibited by the Mac App Store. A workaround is to schedule wake from sleep manually in System Preferences.

Finally, a note about version numbers, which aren’t quite in line. Poster 1.0 in the App Store has all the relevant fixes from Poster 1.0.1. Feeder 2.1.6 is on my site today to bring it in line with the App Store version, but doesn’t add anything significant for existing users so it won’t appear in Feeder’s automatic software update.

Mac Power Users Podcast on Information Managers

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

The Mac Power Users podcast recently covered information managers, including Together: MPU 016: Information Managers.

This has been one of our most requested episodes. We talk all about information managers. These are applications that handle all those random bits of information that don’t seem to fit in any other type of organizational system. We’ll give you a general overview of some of the options available on the Mac and Katie and David go more in depth on the systems we use.
