[Blog] The Safe Mac Announces AdMedic

This morning, the well-reputed Mac Security Blog, The Safe Mac, released the successor to their older Adware Removal Tool and the System Reporter script, named AdMedic. The older tools did a great job, but ran as scripts, and required full app re-downloads to update the adware signature database. This was one of the driving forces behind[…]

[Review] PhotoSweeper – Get rid of those pesky duplicate photos

15 years ago, you rarely took a 2nd photo of something, since it cost you money to develop them afterwards, and a pretty penny at that. But now…a slightly different problems exist. We are all too happy to just start snapping and keep at at, without fear of creating doubles, triples or even more. While[…]

[Review] Never lose your iDevice again, with Marco Polo

I don’t know about you, but easily one of the most regular things that I utter to my wife is: “Honey, have you seen my phone anywhere?” Until now, that is. Now I utter, to the room: “Marco!” One of the funniest ways, yet most effective, to find your iDevice when you misplace it (without[…]

[Review] Undercover – Bad news for Mac Thieves

Undercover was easily one of the best pieces of software that I have had the privilege of reviewing for 2014! Like any good Apple user, you probably have Find my Mac (Find my iPhone, you know what I mean) enabled, and hope to heck that you will never need to use it. Touch wood though,[…]

[Review] Hide your secret stash on your Mac with Hider 2

Those folders that are fine and dandy for your eyes and fingers, but not quite for anyone else’s. And remember, you can use the age-old “hide it in plain sight” technique,[…]

[Review] Track exactly how much time you spend on your iPhone!

It’s something that I have been made aware of before, but like most less-exciting things in life, I chose to just ignore it. “Are you on your iPhone again!?” Enter the clever little app called Moment. Moment comes from developer Kevin Holesh, who actually wrote the app for himself, who suffers from the same problem[…]

[Review] Command-C. Clipboard sharing, made easy

We’ve all been there…  Working on your iPhone or iPad, you come across a website address, phone number, image or a particularly foreign name or surname, and you need to copy and paste it to your Mac, or other device.  Between sending text messages, emails and note syncing with iCloud with myself, I came across[…]

[Review] Multiple Attachments – iOS Email Bliss

If you’re an avid user of your iPhone and iPad mail app, and who isn’t, then you know the frustration; 1 email means 1 attachment! Sending 3 mails for 3 attachment is not an option. So what can you use as an alternative? Multiple Attachments attachments from developer Jan Mazurczak is an excellent choice! From any[…]
