Name Mangler 3.7 joins the Universal parade

February 24th, 2021 by Rob Griffiths

Name Mangler 3.7 is out for both direct and App Store users. Version 3.7 is a Universal app, running natively on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs. It also features a new floating window mode (in the Window menu), and many other improvements, all detailed in the release notes.

Direct users can update in-app or by downloading a new copy of the app from our site (you won’t lose your settings or history, etc.). App Store users should see the update in the App Store app, if not now then shortly.

Leech 3.1.5 and Time Sink 2.2 released

February 23rd, 2021 by Rob Griffiths

Leech 3.1.5 and Time Sink 2.2 are out. These are minor updates in that there aren’t a lot of changes in either app, but the big news for both is that they’re now native on both Intel and Apple silicon Macs.

You can read the release notes for both (Time Sink release notes • Leech release notes), but really, there’s not much more there than what you’ve read here.

As always, direct users can update from within the app or by downloading a new copy of the app from our site (you won’t lose your settings). App Store users should see the update in the App Store app—if not already, then very shortly.

Witch 4.3.8 released with a regression fix

February 2nd, 2021 by Rob Griffiths

Witch 4.3.8 is out, and it fixes an issue we introduced (sorry!) in 4.3.7.

The problem was that, for users who have Witch set not to activate the selected item when the modifier keys are released, there would be a half-second or so where the panel sat onscreen after a selection was made and activated. That delay is now gone.

Update from the About tab within Witch’s settings, or just download a fresh copy from our site.

Displaperture 2.1 rounds corners even more better

February 2nd, 2021 by Rob Griffiths

Displaperture 2.1 is out, with improvements to the corner radius slider. There’s a “sticky spot” at the default radius, and you’ll see the radius displayed as a number while you drag the slider. We’ve also made the slider non-linear, so it’s easier to have fine-grained control at the lower (realistic) radius levels.

Use the new-in-2.0 in-app updating to update, or just download a fresh copy from our site.

Witch 4.3.7 released with Apple silicon support

February 1st, 2021 by Rob Griffiths

Witch 4.3.7 is out, and the big news is that it now runs natively on both Intel and Apple silicon—hooray! We also changed something in how the app is bundled that we hope will end the spate of macOS quarantine-related errors we’re seeing in Big Sur, and that’s about it…did we mention it’s now native on Apple silicon?

As always, you can update from the About tab of Witch’s preferences, or by downloading a fresh copy of Witch from our web site.

Pin preferred pixel plans with Resolutionator 2.0

January 5th, 2021 by Rob Griffiths

Resolutionator 2.0 is out, and the big news is that you can now pin resolutions so that your most-used choices appear at the top of the list. Hold the Option key down with the menu visible, and you can pin (or unpin) any desired resolution:

Resolutionator is now a Universal app, running natively on both M1 and Intel powered Macs. There are some other minor changes you can read about in Resolutionator’s release notes.

If you have an M1 Mac, you’ll also notice that resolution switches are nearly instantaneous—this is all thanks to the M1 chip and architecture, but couple that resolution-switching speed with Resolutionator’s onscreen resolution switcher, and switching resolutions has never been easier or faster.

You can update from within the app, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app from the Resolutionator web page.

Displaperture 2.0 released

December 10th, 2020 by Rob Griffiths

Given the newfound popularity of rounded corners in Big Sur, we’ve spent a bit of time spiffing up our nostalgic Displaperture, which lets you round the corners of your display by amounts ranging from subtle to ridiculous.

(Even when using a ridiculous amount of rounding, you can click the items in the rounded area…you just can’t see them. Ridiculous amounts of rounding should probably be used only for entertainment purposes.)

For those who remember them, rounded corners were a “benefit” of CRT displays. Now, they’re back for stylistic reasons, and Displaperture has you covered! Check out the release notes page for all the goodies in 2.0, but it’s not an extensive list. The big news is that it’s now a Universal app for both Intel and M1 Macs, and that it has a built-in software update mechanism.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: Not only is it still free, but there’s a also a brand-new App Store version as well.

For those who haven’t used the app before, here’s an important heads up: It’s a totally faceless app. The only time you see its interface is after launching it—there’s no Dock or menu bar icon. So how do you change your settings, or quit the app? It may seem odd, but you do so by launching it again—this will redisplay the interface, so you can change settings or click the Quit button.

Moom 3.2.20 charts a universal path forward

November 30th, 2020 by Rob Griffiths

Moom 3.2.20 is out, and as given away by the headline, it’s our first universal app: It runs native code on both M1 ARM Macs and Intel Macs…

And now that we’ve got one under our belt, more will follow in the future. But back to Moom…

Also in this release are additional changes to the UI to better fit with macOS 11’s new look, a fix for a visual glitch that only appears in macOS 10.13 and earlier, and Moom now properly remembers its location in the menu bar between relaunches.

As usual, direct customers can update via the in-app updater or by downloading a fresh copy from the Moom web page. App Store customers should see the update in the App Store app—if not now then very shortly.

Usher 2 beta 4574 released

November 30th, 2020 by Rob Griffiths

Usher 2 beta 4574 is out, and the biggest change—at least for users of Apple silicon Macs—is that it’s now a Universal app that runs natively on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs.

This release adds a news feature that makes it easy to change the spacing between thumbnails by Shift-dragging on the image size slider. We’ve made lots of other improvements, too, as you can see in the release notes.

You can update to the newest Usher via the in-app updater, or by downloading a new copy of the app from our site.

Key Codes 2.2 released

November 30th, 2020 by Rob Griffiths

Key Codes 2.2 is out, and it’s now a Universal app that runs natively on both Intel and Apple silicon Macs. We’ve also improved its support for Dark Mode.

Direct users can update via the in-app updater, or by downloading a new copy of the app from our site. App Store users will see the update in the App Store app, either now or very shortly.
