  • Resolutionator — Fast and easy resolution switches

    Switch via pop-up or menu bar (not shown)

    In the days of yore, switching resolutions was no more difficult than choosing an entry from a drop-down menu on your Mac's menu bar. As years passed, though, this easy resolution switching went the way of the dinosaurs, being replaced by a multi-click routine through System Preferences.

    Resolutionator to the rescue—once again, all your resolutions are but a menu bar click away. Or if you prefer, you can use a keyboard shortcut. Oh…you'll also gain access to resolutions that OS X won't even let you use!

  • Moom — Move and zoom your windows

    Moom via mouse (top) or keyboard (bottom)

    Moom makes it really easy to move and zoom your windows—just hover over the green resize button, and the Moom interface appears.

    From there, a single click zooms a window to full screen, or pins it to an edge, sized at half the available space. Hover again, and click the arrow icon to return the window to its original size and location.

    Keyboard mode lets you do all that via the keyboard, as well as centering any window and more.

  • Name Mangler — Batch file renaming simplified

    Name Mangler makes even complex renaming tasks simple

    Renaming multitudes of files can be a slow, tedious process in Mac OS X. Automator can help, but its interface can be daunting.

    Enter Name Mangler, which manages to be both powerful and easy-to-use.

    An always-there preview shows you the effect of your proposed renaming scheme before you implement it, and advanced mode gives you access to a powerful scripting language for more complex renaming tasks.

  • Witch — Window switching with style

    Fast access to any window, with previews

    Switching between multiple windows in multiple applications in Mac OS X isn't as easy as it should be.

    Instead of using Command-Tab and then window switching, try Witch to switch directly to your desired window. Activate Witch, select your desired window from the pop-up menu, and press Return.

    Witch 3.5 switches across Spaces (in Mac OS X 10.6), and provides optional window previews prior to switching.

  • Butler — Your do-it-all Mac OS X assistant

    Butler's setup screen, showing an active Fast User Switching pop-up menu

    Meet the program that started it all—the original "Swiss Army Knife" utility for Mac OS X.

    Fast launch programs and open documents; control iTunes from any application; create hot folders that pop up at the touch of a keyboard shortcut; search web sites without opening your browser; store multiple items on the clipboard; record simple keyboard macros, and oh so much more.

    Why buy 10 different programs when just one can do it all?

  • Baubleries — What the heck is a baublery?

    A baublery is a small program that does something useful. Because our baubleries are small one-trick ponies, we distribute them for free. Note that many were written for specific versions of Mac OS X, and may not work (or be needed) on newer releases. Each baublery page clearly calls out any such issues.

    Our current collection of baubleries let you round your screen corners, display key codes, tint the menu bar, manage the Open With menu, block unwanted Safari window changes, and manage the pre-10.6 Services menu.

    Because these programs are provided free of charge, our ability to support them is limited. You can report bugs using our bug tracker, but there's no assurance we'll be able to address them.
