When you think of research and writing long documents, you inevitably think of Scrivener. There is an alternative approach, though, in the form of three apps that communicate with each other like you couldn’t imagine. DEVONthink Pro 3, Ulysses and Agenda combine to make a great long-document writing system.
The Delock SATA to USB 3.0 adapter is built around the most reliable chipset, the Asmedia one. The €24.00 Delock “Adapter USB 3.0 > SATA 6 Gb/s” is a three-part adapter. The box contains the actual SATA to USB adapter with a DC input and USB 3.0 type micro-B female connector, a corresponding USB 3.0 cable and a power adapter.
Serif, the developers of Affinity Photo and Designer, last week released their much-anticipated publishing app, Affinity Publisher. The new layout design app comes with a good deal of unique and very clever features, including “StudioLink”, an integration system – that re-defines the adjective “seamless” – between Publisher and their Designer and Photo apps.
My favourite text expander Typinator has reached version 8 and except for its Regex capabilities, its assistant for creating forms to enter variable data in an expansion, its calculation features and its ability to set your cursor where you need it after an expansion, Typinator 8 now also offers usage statistics, literal support for inclusion of the Mac’s modifier keys in abbreviations, and time zone support.
DEVONthink Pro 3 comes with a re-designed system-wide extension that lets you grab entire web pages in various formats from any web browser. When you combine it with DEVONthink’s content capabilities you’ll have an extremely powerful research annex information collection tool at your fingertips – much better than Bear app, which I am using now.
I remember buying my first and last Power Mac Pro many years ago. It looked gorgeous, it was blazingly fast and I used it for about eight years. Keep in mind that last figure as I take you on a city trip to the price level of the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR.
What is better? An external desk accessory that communicates with your Mac to track the time you spend on tasks and pleasure? Or an app that requires you to start and stop timers, or even an app that captures your activities, catalogues them per your instructions and – when everything’s been set up to your satisfaction — does away with having to start/stop anything yourself?
Timing is the brain child of an ex-Google developer. It’s a rare app that’s been made in Europe (Austria) to make it to the hit charts. And it does so for a reason. Timing delivers on its promise to track your activities over time automatically.
More or less out of the blue, DEVONtechnologies released its first beta of DEVONthink 3. DEVONthink is what we used to call a “freeform database manager”, which basically means its records can be anything from images to text snippets and complete documents.
Mac users who thought the Spotlight search features that are readily available in the Finder are all there is to it, are wrong. HoudahSpot is a ﬁle search utility that builds upon the existing Spotlight engine but allows for vastly more options to search through your files.
