    Click to MacZOT Try Now  



    Struggling with Cash Flow?

    People all over the world are stuck with credit card debt, paying high-interest loans, or just losing the battle to know how and where their money is spent. Instead of helping with this problem, most personal finance packages make it more complicated. MoneyWell is different. Instead of forcing you to generate complex reports or click a dozen times on pie charts, MoneyWell shows you all you need to know by just opening the program. Learn more…

    Envelope Budgeting, Bucket Style

    The manual method of dividing up your income into labeled envelopes to control your spending is a great way to budget your money, but it’s no longer practical in our debit card society. MoneyWell emulates this with electronic buckets. You simply assign your bank deposits to an income bucket and MoneyWell flows that into expense buckets for you to spend. Learn more…

    Overspending?

    The hard part with sticking to a budget is knowing when to stop spending. Why do I have to run a report to see if I can go out to eat? With MoneyWell, you just glance at your “Dining” bucket to see if there’s money left in it. Because it’s that easy to do, you’ll probably do it and stick to your budget. Learn more…

    Jumsoft Aperture Themes -

    Normally: $99.95

    ZOT Price: $39.99

    Click to MacZOT



    Save time and get Amazing results.

    Aperture Themes are great for everyone. Whether you’re a professional photographer, a serious hobbyist, or you just love to point and shoot. Your photos will look stunning when displayed with Aperture Themes. If you need to transfer photos to your distant colleagues, but have no time to prepare the photos for display on the Internet, let Jumsoft solve your problem by using one of these five professionally designed Aperture Themes.

    Our artistic color schemes and popular designs will be appreciated on any types of display. Each of the high-quality templates include two-page layouts you’ll love, such as “WebPage” and “WebJournal” that allow you to choose intelligent ways to display your images or photos.

    Three simple steps will get you started: Buy, Download, and Install your favorite theme. Then it’s time to work with your photos or images in Aperture.

    Check out all five themes here…

    Frames Gray Theme

    Frames Gray Theme produces pictures that have a photo frame, with shadows that imitate the real 3D look of the frame. Here, the gallery background coloring is bright, but not too intense, so you can be sure your images will stand out and look perfect.

    Grid Black Theme

    Our Grid Black Theme reveals a straight and solid attitude toward image or photo display. Each picture has a frame and the gallery appears in a table form that evokes a sense of orderliness. If your pictures are bright, or have a lot of color, this dark background will nicely set off your work. As you know, bright colors against a dark background always get attention!

    iPhone Theme

    iPhone Theme is both modern and relaxing. All of your pictures and headings are framed together. That’s why this theme fits collectors’ and photographers’ needs perfectly. All the photos in this gallery have the same subject and are shown as a set.

    Rounded Black Theme

    Rounded Black Theme is similar to the Grid Black Theme, with some differences. The strong line of the Rounded Black Frame for each picture perfectly separates it from the others. The name of the picture on the bottom of the frame is easily read, but will not take away from the picture.

    Mental Image Theme

    Mental Image Theme is informal and has attractive details at the top and bottom of your picture gallery. Details which will not disturb the viewer’s attention to your great pictures.

    Requires – Aperture 1.5 or higher

    Bokeh 1.0 – For people who use software with big needs.

    Normally: $17.00

    ZOT Price: $8.50

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  



    Presenting Bokeh - Pronounced like boquet.
    Bokeh is for people who use software with big needs. When your Mac is clogged with lots of extra processes, the amount of power it can give to any one program is lessened. Running an intensive process like a Photoshop filter or 3D render can be sped up with Bokeh.

    How It Works
    Focusing on a running application with Bokeh suspends all other apps in the foreground. Some programs may seem like they would require very little of the CPU, but could actually be hogging more than their fair share. By suspending these apps with Bokeh, your Mac will be able to dedicate maximum power to your present task. Defocusing will resume your other apps right where they left off.

    Real world performance test
    In our tests, Photoshop CS3 ran 12.9% faster when Bokeh was activated. This was determined with a commonly used Photoshop benchmarking test from retouchartists.com on a Macbook Pro Intel Core Duo.

    And don’t just take our word for it, check out what our users have to say:

    “I recently learned about Bokeh. As I had already used its venerable predecessor “Freeze Frame” and had found it an invaluable tool to increase my productivity I decided to give the new program a try. Well, I admit that it’s exceptionally more intuitive and the new FOCUS function that instantly freezes other programs processing consumption to increase the foreground application resources is really a manna from heaven! This function also blurs other background windows to allow you more concentration on the document you are working on. I also found the developer very friendly and responsive and would like to thank him heartily for his priceless assistance.”

    - Fariborz Amirshahi

    BTW – everyone who bought FreezeFrame – Bokeh’s Predecessor on macZOT in April – got a free upgrade to Bokeh.

    Leech
    Lightweight Download Manager

    Normally: $15.41

    ZOT Price: $7.95

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    Browser Integration   ·   The best download manager is the one that doesn’t get in your way. That’s why Leech can capture all downloads from Safari, Camino, and OmniWeb while staying almost invisible. Just click those download links and use that context menu like you usually do, and Leech will kick in automatically.

    Seamless integration — unless, of course, you uncheck “Download via Leech”
    Playing by Your Rules   ·   Leech’s rules let you define individual download folders and postprocessing applications for any given file type/host combination.

    Defining a rule for DMG files: Download to desktop, then open
    Convenience   ·   You’ve just copied 20 URLs from a text document, and you want all of them downloaded? No problem — just paste them on Leech’s downloads window. You can also just drag URLs to Leech’s Dock symbol, which doubles as a status display.

    left: Slightly more than 50% downloaded
    right: Done
    Take Control   ·   Did you ever wish you could limit the number of concurrent downloads, so you wouldn’t have to wait forever for the first download to complete? Did you ever want to just mark a URL for downloading without starting the download at once? Did you ever wait for a download to complete, just so you can shut down your computer afterwards? If any of these ring a bell, Leech has you covered.

    left: Downloading two files, one queued
    right: Downloading that queued file
    Pause & Resume   ·   With Leech, you can pause and resume downloads whenever you want — as long as the server you’re downloading from is up for it.
    Keychain Support   ·   Whenever you download a file from a site that requires authentication, Leech is happy to store your password in your system-wide, secure keychain, so you won’t have to enter your password again next time.
    Lest We Forget   ·   Leech keeps track of your downloads and stores them in its unique, searchable history menu.
    Home, Sweet Home   ·   If you’ve managed to master any of the applications that come with Mac OS X, Leech will make you feel right at home. Our main goal was to build something that would work exactly the way you expect it to work.
    Focus   ·   Leech doesn’t try to be a peer-to-peer client or look like iTunes and swamp you with spacious user interface elements you’ll never use. Leech downloads files, end of story.

    “I don’t need a download manager…”

    Your Browser Doesn’t   ·   Every modern browser has its own download functionality, so why should you use a separate application for handling downloads in the first place? Most browsers (e.g., Safari) don’t offer a lot of control over downloads. Have a look at the list above — does your browser do all of that?
    No Crashing   ·   Have you ever tried resuming a disrupted download with your browser after it has crashed? Does that even work? Browsers crash a lot. Most of the time, some off-key media plug-in object is to blame and it’s not the browser’s fault, but it’s still unnerving to have your downloads — especially larger ones — disrupted by a browser crash. And the solution is quite simple: use Leech for downloading.
