★★ NOTES ON YOUR MAC - FINALLY DONE RIGHT ★★

*** FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY ***

NotesTab is an indispensable app and is the easiest piece of software you will ever use. Try it for a day and you'll be hooked for life! This nifty app sits on your Mac's menu bar and is available at the click of a button. It is perfect for jotting down a few lines as well as drafting that essay you've been pushing aside :)

⁕ HOW CAN SUCH AN AWESOME APP BE FREE?
Good question! Whilst developing NotesTab, we found ourselves using it a lot more than we even expected. Soon after, we were convinced that this would be an app that literally everyone would find useful - so we thought, why charge for something that everyone should have the pleasure of using?

Unlike other note taking apps, we focused on making a streamlined, practical and beautiful app that you will find yourself using each and every day. We avoided unnecessary features that may sound cool, but in reality, never get used as they are way too overcomplicated.

⁕ HOW IT WORKS:
Write down your thoughts and important pieces of information into NotesTab and have them saved instantly, character-by-character, ensuring you never need to click save.

⁕ MULTITASKING:
Via the Settings panel, you can set NotesTab to remain visible above other apps. This means you can easily copy/paste useful tidbits of information from other apps faster than ever! This is perfect for students, professionals... actually it's perfect for everyone :)

⁕ SHARE NOTES VIA EMAIL:
By clicking the 'Share Note' button at the bottom bar of an open note, you can instantly transport its contents to your e-mail client, with the body of the note becoming the body of your drafted e-mail. Pretty cool, huh?

⁕ TIME STAMPS:
Each note you write features a time stamp by its side which lets you view at a glance when that particular note was jotted down.

⁕ SEARCH FOR NOTES:
Are you an obsessive notes taker? No problem, our high powered dynamic search allows you to find the particular note you're looking for in seconds.

⁕ CUSTOMIZABLE HOTKEY:
The Settings panel in the app lets you assign your own hotkey for making NotesTab readily available with with just a click of your keyboard.

⁕ BEAUTIFUL DESIGN:
We take pride in the fact that we've made NotesTab the slickest, simplest and best looking note taking app that you will use. The user interface, menu transitions and app icon are pixel perfect and a joy to use and look at :)

Not convinced? Well, here's how you can use NotesTab for all your every day needs:

⁕ Take notes without opening a new app - NotesTab simply rests on your menu bar at all times
⁕ Particularly useful for students during lectures/classes, professionals in a meeting, etc.
⁕ You can easily copy and paste in text that you may later require
⁕ Got that million dollar idea? Make sure you take a note of it using this ever present app!
⁕ A great tool to help manage your passwords
⁕ Names, numbers, email addresses can all be jotted down in a jiffy
⁕ Take your MacBook to your kitchen and use NotesTab as a recipe manager!
⁕ Birthdays and presents - make a list of both to always keep at hand.
⁕ And much, much more.

We've spent a great deal of time thinking about the details and after using this app for a few days, you'll begin to notice our small yet creative touches. We plan on a very active development cycle, so please spread the word and keep sending us your feedback!

Droplr is the easiest way to share images, documents, files & links.

Drag and drop something on Droplr's icon in the menubar, or use Droplr's keyboard shortcut to upload it to Droplr. Droplr will let you know when it has been uploaded and copy a link to your clipboard that you can paste in to emails, instant messages, Twitter, Facebook, etc…

The keyboard shortcut can also perform actions depending on what app you're using. Viewing a cool photo in iPhoto you want to share? How about a contact in Address Book? Or maybe a design in Photoshop you need to quickly get feedback on? Droplr's plugins integrate with your favorite apps to make sharing from anywhere painless.

Have a note to share? Droplr handles many different text uploads including markdown notes, plain text & code snippets with syntax highlighting and line numbers.

Sharing screenshots has also never been easier. With a custom keyboard shortcut, Droplr will let you take a screenshot with OS X's screenshot tools you're already familiar with. Droplr will then upload the screenshot and give you the link, all without the screenshot file cluttering up your desktop.

Droplr is designed to stay out of your way but always be ready for when you need it.

"Droplr is the original file & link sharing app for the Mac that I couldn't live without. All the other imitations fall short." - Stephen Hubbard, Photographer.

GREAT FEATURES

* Keyboard shortcuts for faster access to uploading.
* Custom keyboard shortcut for taking a screenshot and automatically uploading it in the background.
* Easy to understand menu with options for viewing past drops, copying links, opening a drop & deleting a drop.
* Thumbnail previews of your images in Droplr's menu.
* View tracking - see how many people have viewed your drops.
* Native text handling - makes sharing notes and code snippets incredibly easy and fun.
* Many plugins to integrate with your favorite apps.
* Growl support if you'd prefer it over Droplr's notifications.
* Cloud-based web application to manage all your drops and account options.

"The biggest software advance for writers since the word processor."
- Best-selling novelist Michael Marshall Smith

Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers designed for composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on getting you to the end of that awkward first draft.

Compose your text in any order and in pieces as large or small as you like. View the components of your draft individually or as a whole. Import and refer to research files such as images and PDFs alongside your writing.

Whether you prefer to outline first, hammer out your first draft and restructure later, or do a bit of both, Scrivener's corkboard and outliner tools are completely integrated with the text, so working with an overview of your draft is just a click away.

Scrivener's users include best-selling novelists, screenwriters, students, academics, lawyers, journalists and translators. It won't presume to tell you how to write - it just provides an array of flexible tools that allow you to do things your way, no matter what kind of writing you do.

★ “Not sold on life in the cloud? Polkast may be just the thing.” – GigaOm ★

★ “Polkast rocks and is the way I now push my files around. Why? I have terabytes of video files at home that I’m not going to upload to Dropbox or any cloud storage. Now I can get access to them while on the road.” – Robert Scoble, Scobleizer ★

Connect directly to your Mac from your mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android device) or Windows 7 with Polkast, and get access to 100% of your files, photos, videos, music.

Already use iCloud? No problem, we’re complementary. Whereas iCloud limits you to 5GB of free storage, Polkast provides access to all your files. Those thousands of photos you have in iPhoto, all easily accessible and organized in Polkast. No more pre-planning what files to sync to the cloud. No storage limits. With Polkast, all of your files are available to you whenever you need them, no matter where you are – across the room or across the world.

Because we let your devices communicate directly and securely over Wi-Fi, you get almost instantaneous downloads when on the same local network. Fetch a 1GB video in minutes, not hours.

If you also have a PC, you can use Polkast to access your Mac from your PC – e.g., from work or home. This is great for people who like to keep their work and personal lives separate.

Thank you Apple for making us #1 on the New & Noteworthy in iTunes app store!!!

Features:
• Search through thousands of computer files instantly while on the go.
• Transfer files, photos, and videos directly between devices over the air.
• Send files from your computer using your mobile phone or tablet as a remote control. Great for large home video files!
• Easily access all of your photos and videos stored in iPhoto

• Save files back to your computer when you modify them on the mobile.
• Enable remote access to external drives by mapping them to Polkast.
• Secure your files through a protected password and SSL encryption – the same methods used by banks and the military. None of your files are kept in some online Internet storage site.

Note: For every device you want access to or from, a client (Mac, PC or mobile) is required. Your Mac or PC must be turned on to access files.

"Twelve passwords for banks and bills so high,
Seventy for retailers with their online stores,
Ninety for communities of Men to whom I say "Hi",
One for me, 'cause I can't know more
In the land of Crypto where the Secrets lie.
1Password to rule them all, 1Password to find them,
1Password bring them all, and in the vault to bind them
In the land of Crypto where the Secrets lie."
