Fresh

Watching this video will get you up to speed – recommended. Close to all the manual you will need.

Fresh was born on that sinking feeling we have whenever we head into the Finder to ‘Find’ that file that we are working on, just downloaded, or like to keep handy. Fresh is designed to hide itself when you are not using it – keeping your onscreen clutter of windows more managable. Note that although the Fresh window is large, it disappears as soon as you drag a file out, so you can drag to any location.


Ironic Software and macZOT have come together to offer you a GREAT deal on the Mac App Store version today as well! Click the App Store button below to grab it while the price is in the ZOTzone.

Two Main zones.

There are two main areas in Fresh. The top one shows files that Fresh has identified as new to you, currently being edited, etc. When you download a file from the internet, or save an attachment in Mail, or edit a file in Word, it will show up here. As new and changed files appear on your computer, then are added to this area. If you click on an item, then press the delete key, then that item is simply removed from the list, with the file on disk left alone. To throw a document into the trash, just press ‘command – delete’ or drag it to the trash can in the dock. Since new items will be appearing in the ‘Fresh Files’ area all the time, if you see a file there that you will be working with today, just drag it into the ‘Cooler’ below.

 

The ‘Cooler’ on the bottom is a like a shelf where you can put things for storage. In this respect it it sort of like your desktop – with two important distinctions. One is that the files listed in the cooler can be anywhere on your computer. The other is that this cooler features an ‘autoclean’ function – it automatically throws out items that overflow. This means that you don’t have to worry about cluttering up the cooler with too many items. All of the items shown in Fresh are really pointers to the actual files, so don’t worry when something falls out of the cooler due to disuse, it won’t really be thrown out.

 

Searching

You can search from within Fresh using Spotlight, or dig down into any folder on your computer to select the folder you need. This keeps your workflow going. Fresh always appears on the screen of the application that you are using.

 

Tagging

Fresh can tag files – to tag a file simply select it (or multiple docs) then press the return key. You can pick from recently used tags, or simply type in tags. To move onto the next document, press the ‘tab’ key. You can also rate files with 1 to 5 stars.

Note: To create two word tags use the underscore character ‘_’.

 

Tips and tricks.

Fresh uses a large window so you can see the files that you are dealing with, but keep in mind that as you drag something out of Fresh, the window vanishes, leaving you with plenty of space to complete your drag.

In the Fresh zone, you may see 4 to 10 items listed, depending upon your monitor size. Fresh actually keeps track of more items than this – you can use the arrow keys to look a bit farther into the past. Same thing applies to the cooler. As you add items, other items will drift out of view. Fresh allows you to go back and find items that have recently fallen off the front view. Don’t forget that in the cooler you are free to rearrange the order of the documents as you see fit.

When you use a file in Fresh – it automatically gets added to the cooler. You can reorganize items in the cooler as you see fit.

There is a menu available for each document that allows you to see the path of the item. In the Fresh zone you can also use this menu to add exclusions: You can exclude all files of a certain type, specifically that single file, or exclude any folder. This allows you to keep unwanted files from appearing in Fresh. You can edit these exclusion settings in the preferences.

The Elevator Pitch

Flying Logic is a revolutionary tool for proactive thinkers, whether you want to change your personal life for the better, or grow a world-class business that impacts thousands or millions of people. Flying Logic is a highly visual, easy to use software application that does for reasoning what spreadsheets do for numbers. Just as you would not do detailed financial projections in your head, you need Flying Logic for all nontrivial planning and reasoning endeavors. Project management software won’t help you when you have no idea what part of a complex system needs improvement, or what that improvement might look like, or how to cause that improvement. Answering these questions is a critical and often-overlooked part of the planning process, and this is where Flying Logic shines. Flying Logic diagrams are not static images— they are working models of your reasoning that you test as you build and that stay “live” as you share your reasoning with others.

Version 2.0 Now Available!

Our first paid upgrade includes a huge number of new features and enhancements including our top request: Incremental Layout! The document window has a completely new design including inspectors that can be shown, hidden, and resized to suit your work style. Also: custom symbols, colored groups, zoom the canvas up as well as down, group hoisting, and too many more to list here! So check out the list of new features, read about the new features in detail in the Flying Logic User’s Guide, and watch for articles, tips, and videos in our blog.

“Flying Logic is a powerful tool for visual support of critical thinking. I have used the diagrams to explain the rigor behind proposed methods for solving customers’ challenges and have enjoyed great feedback. I have successfully used the tool to define inter-related actions and requisite conditions required to effectively mitigate Organizational Conflict of Interest (OCI). Flying Logic elevates my ability to think visually and to rethink with minimal rework in the diagrams. It is a true enabler of constructive thought.”
Rich Petersen – Principal, Capridea, Inc.

Fast, Beautiful, and Truly Compelling Plans

If there is anything in your life, business, or organization that needs improvement? Flying Logic is a highly visual, easy to use software application that does for reasoning what spreadsheets do for numbers. Just as you would not do detailed financial projections in your head, you need Flying Logic for all nontrivial planning and reasoning endeavors.

Critical Thought More Critical Than Ever

Rational thinking, planning, and communication skills are key to every field of human endeavor ranging from personal growth to building viable, competitive businesses. Even the ability to successfully articulate non-rational concepts such as emotion and intuition ultimately depends upon the mind’s power to reason. And anyone from young children, to governments, to the CEOs of multinational corporations can benefit from well-developed reasoning abilities and a common language in which to reason. Flying Logic is a revolutionary tool that fills a widespread need for software that supports, simply and beautifully, the practice of reasoning. However, no software can do your thinking for you, so Flying Logic was inspired by the Theory of Constraints.

The Theory of Constraints (TOC)

The Theory of Constraints is an overall management philosophy founded on the idea that all real-world systems; whether personal, interpersonal, or organizational; have at least one constraint: something that holds the system back from accomplishing more of its primary purpose, or goal. The rate of this accomplishment is called throughput. If a system had absolutely no constraints, it would be capable of infinite throughput. But though infinite throughput is impossible, amazing throughput gains are possible through the careful identification and management of the system’s key constraints. The purpose of the TOC, originally developed by Eliyahu M. (“Eli”) Goldratt and first popularized in his bestselling business novel The Goal, is to give individuals and organizations the tools they need to manage their constraints in the most effective manner possible. Originally applied to manufacturing lines, TOC principles have been successfully adapted for areas as diverse as supply chain, accounting and finance, project management, health care, military planning, and software engineering.

TOC claims that a real-world system with more than three constraints is extremely unlikely, and in fact usually only one constraint is key. Perhaps counter-intuitively, this is because the more complex a system becomes, the more interrelationships are necessary among its parts, which results in fewer overall degrees of freedom.

A major implication of this is that managing a complex system or organization can be made both simpler and more effective by providing managers with few, specific, yet highly influential areas on which to focus — maximizing performance in the areas of key constraints, or elevating the constraint (making it less constraining.)

The Five Focusing Steps

To accomplish this, the developers of TOC developed the Five Focusing Steps, which define a process of ongoing improvement. (Step Zero was later added for additional clarity.)

  1. Articulate the goal of the system. How do we measure the system’s success?
  2. Identify the constraint. What is the resource limiting the system from attaining more of its goal?
  3. Exploit the constraint to its fullest. How can we keep the constraining resource as busy as possible, exclusively on what it does best?
  4. Subordinate all other processes to the decisions made in Step 2. How can we align all processes so they give the constraining resource everything it needs?
  5. Elevate the constraint. If managing the constraining resource more efficiently does not give us all the improvement we need, then how can we acquire more of the resource?
  6. Avoid inertia. Has the constraint moved to some other resource as a result of the previous steps? If so, don’t allow inertia itself to become the constraint: go back to step 1.

The Thinking Processes (TP)

The Thinking Processes emerged as TOC practitioners worked with organizations that needed to identify their core constraints and how to manage or elevate them. They needed the answers to three deceptively simple questions:

  • What to change?
  • To what to change?
  • How to cause the change?

The Thinking Processes are based on the scientific method, to which is added a simple visual language for describing and reasoning about situations, arguments, and plans using the language of cause and effect. There are two basic kinds of reasoning: sufficient cause and necessary condition.

“Flying Logic is easy and intuitive to use. For those of us who use the TOC Thinking Processes, Flying Logic has succeeded where every other tool — whether it’s software, sticky notes, or pencil-and-paper — has failed. First, it eliminates the time spent on drawing and arranging the entities, and leaves us with more time to do the thinking! Second, it enables us to test our assumptions quickly, easily and visually.”

- Lisa Scheinkopf, author, Thinking For A Change: Putting the TOC Thinking Processes to Use

From these, the practitioners developed several methodologies called application tools designed to answer the three questions. The application tools provide the ability to develop a complete picture of a system’s core constraints and how to overcome them.

Current Reality Tree

Used to move from an articulation of the undesirable symptoms (or desirable strengths) present in a system to the core cause that has the most influence over them (i.e., the constraining resource or core issue.)

There are illustrations and explanations for many other “trees” on the Flying Logic website.

The Need for Software Support

Although there are many success stories of organizations that have implemented TOC using the Thinking Processes, so far there have been two problematic approaches to working with the application tools:

  • Groups work with a facilitator in front of a white board to capture their thinking. This has the drawback that as they grow, whiteboard diagrams quickly become disorganized and difficult to understand.
  • Individuals create their own plans or memorialize plans created by other groups using tools such as Visio. The primary drawback to this approach is that the planner often becomes bogged down in diagram layout details: fonts, sizes, colors, placement, styles, etc., that have nothing to do with the actual planning process.
  • Either way, there is no easy way to test the logic inherent in the diagram.

Flying Logic was designed to eliminate all of these constraints by allowing groups or individual planners to create Thinking Process diagrams using an intuitive interface that requires no attention to layout issues, and by producing presentation-quality output as a by-product of the planning process.

By providing a clear, visual language of causes and effects, Flying Logic encourages detached, rational thinking. By removing constraints around re-working the diagram, Flying Logic encourages people to painlessly consider every factor that really matters, and address every blind spot as it comes up. A good analogy is spreadsheet software – before spreadsheets, people still did financial projections, but they were laborious, error-prone, and there was a great deal of resistance to rework. After spreadsheets, people take many more factors into consideration and easily explore many more alternatives in their financial planning.

Just as a spreadsheet allows you to play “What if…?” with numbers, Flying Logic lets you play “What if…?” with plans, arguments, and ideas.

The Flying Logic Interface

Flying Logic uses a simple, gesture-based interface. Drag from the list of entity types on the left to create your diagram. Each time you place an entity, it “snaps into place” with arrows that represent the causal relationships automatically appearing where you want them. Drag from entity to entity to create additional causal relationships as desired, or drag from entity to arrow to combine causes into necessary condition relationships. Relationships representing AND, OR, and NOT are easily created.


System Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.5 or later • 26MB free disk space

    Everport

    Backpack to Evernote

    Normally: $12.99

    ZOT Price: $5.99

    Click to MacZOT



    infiniteNIL Software and macZOT have come together to offer you a GREAT deal on this Mac App Store only App. Click the App Store button below to grab it while the price is in the ZOTzone. $5.99




    Everport is a Mac OS X application that helps you quickly move your 37signals Backpack data to Evernote. Just add your Backpack accounts, select the pages to import, and click import.

    Easily import your Backpack data into Evernote with a graphical user interface (GUI). No more hunting for scripts or writing your own and running them from the command-line.

    Features

    Supports multiple Backpack accounts. Imports data into Evernote in an organized way.
    Each Backpack page becomes an Evernote notebook. Each item on a Backpack page becomes a separate note in Evernote.
    New notebooks are placed in a new stack named after your Backpack account. Images, galleries, and attachments are moved to Evernote as well.
    Lists are kept as lists with checkboxes Everport is built so that other services may be added in the future, such as 37signals’
    Basecamp, and others that customers request.

    Customer Testimonials:

    Saved me a boatload of time (4 stars)

    I’m very happy with this find. I recently decided to cancel my backpack acct and transfer all of my 50+ pages to evernote. The manual process was killing me so I decided to try this app. I’m happy to report that out of the 50 or so pages I transferred, I only had one error (only have the page transferred). I’m guessing this little app saved me about 3+ hours. In my case, it was a one time use app since I don’t plan on creating or transferring over any new backpack pages.. but from a time-value standpoint… it was totally worth the $12.99. Oh and as an extra bonus, I received almost an immediate response from the developer when sent in a support email for the 1 page I was having trouble with. Great support!

    Requires Mac OS X Lion

    Developer Interview

    1 What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?

    I think the most unique feature is the main feature of the product. If imports your Backpack data into Evernote.

    2 Why did you create this product? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    37signals hasn’t shown Backpack a lot of love lately. In face, they’ve stopped taking new users. I thought there would be a demand to move that data to something else. Evernote seemed like it would be a popular target. Plus Evernote had this API and a contest as well.

    3 What is most interesting to you about developing for the Mac platform.

    I love the Cocoa APIs. I’ve been a fan of them since the NeXT days. I always wanted to use them and I finally had a chance when Apple bought NeXT. They are well designed and make you very productive.

    4 What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?

    Basically, just look at how easy it is to move your data from Backpack to Evernote. As one customer said, it will save you a boat load of time.

    6 What’s your favorite Mac product out there from another developer? Why?

    I think I would have to say Things from Cultured Code. It looks great and it just works. Especially their cloud syncing they just released.

    7 What features would you like to add to your product in the future?

    I would like to add support for importing data into Evernote from other sources such as Basecamp and any other web service that makes sense. That’s something I’m waiting for feedback from potential customers.

    “Even though I have just started using MyPhotoApp it is already bringing big dividends with my clients. One client showed it off to a friend and the friend called to book the next day.

    How to integrate Pro Select with MyPhotoApp.com

    This video was provided by one of our users, Arjen Eeken, and shows how easy it is to integrate MyPhotoApp with Pro Select.

    Click to Developer’s Site for more info.


    Highlights include:

    • You can create all the apps you want — no limit.
    • 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee. We only want happy customers! We want to give you time to see if this works for your business. Give this an honest effort of creating apps and putting them into your clients hands and watch your referrals increase. Just one new client should easily will pay for your subscription!
    • Usage Statistics – See how many times your apps have been installed and how many times they have been viewed.
    • Works On iPhone, iPad, iPod and Android mobile devices.

    Everyone knows that word of mouth marketing is the best. You get well qualified clients. It is not enough to just create a remarkable service where people are willing to refer you. The problem is how to keep reminding your clients to refer people to you without nagging them.

    MyPhotoApp is the perfect referral enabling solution.

    iPhone usage is skyrocketing. It is normal for our clients to have an iPhone… especially the more affluent ones who have disposable income to spend on things
    like photography. When people get together it is usual for people to use their iPhones often to check on mail, text, answer the phone, etc. Having their own personal icon on their iPhone is a constant reminder of your photography business and a very natural conversation starter “Hey look at this cool personal app my photographer created for me! They ROCK!!!” .

    Another scenario is that during a conversation, photography comes up. Your clients will have all the marketing collateral they need right there in their handy iPhone. You can even include special offers that your clients can share with their friends. James Cook Photography includes a coupon for a “free iPhone” app in every app they distribute. This is a low cost, high value incentive for people to book you. They want to be cool too and have their own iPhone app.

    How MyPhotoApp can benefit your business…

    There are several reasons why MyPhotoApp apps are wow items. First, it is very practical. People like to have pictures on their phones. Everyone has pictures on their phone because they are easy to store there. Finding pictures they want to share is usually a several minute task at least. With MyPhotoApp, their (your) pictures are only an icon push away. Second, there is the vanity factor. Who else has their very own icon on their phone? Not many. So your clients feel special and cool, especially when they are around friends.

    The uses in your business are limitless. Here are some common ones…

    • Giving free apps to everyone of your clients has a hugh impact on your referral marketing. Not only are you giving them a “wow” gift — having their very own icon on their mobile device, you are also arming everyone of your clients with marketing collateral that is always with them. And because having their own icon is cool, they will want to share if more often.
    • If you are providing thank you gifts to your clients (if not, you should be), you can use the app as a surprise thank you gift. If you have any volume at all, the cost per app you create is not significant and has a high perceived value to your client. The perfect kind of gift!
    • Using apps as a bonus item only available in your higher collections or when they achieve a certain spend level is another fabulous way of using MyPhotoApp to increase your bottom line. Having apps then turns into a prestige item for your better clients.
    • You can create apps for other businesses that you have, or want to have, a relationship with. For example, if you are a wedding photographer, create apps for wedding planners, venues, florists, etc. that you have a relationship with. Be their preferred vendor to work with!

    The potential uses are only limited by your imagination…

    With your busy routine and a large number of new email in the inbox every day, it is difficult but essentially critical to take control of your inbox. You have to have a process to keep your email organized and inbox clean so that you can find a message when you need it. At the same time, you also need to make sure that you archive and backup your email to prevent the loss in situations like accidental loss of data from email servers, hacking of account, forget password, over size inbox or unpredictable scenarios.
    There are five basic functions that we all need to perform in order to manage and safeguard our email- backup, restore, archive, transfer and organize the data. Beyond Inbox can help you perform all of these in a very efficient and easy way.

    What does Beyond Inbox do?

  • Backup your email for Disaster Recovery.
  • Archive your email.
  • Organize your inbox.
  • Transfer your email to another account.
  • Restore your email
  • You can accidentally delete an email or your password can be compromised and web based email providers will not recover those emails for you. You need your own email backup.

    Beyond Inbox is the easy way to backup, archive, organize, transfer, and restore your email messages from any IMAP-enabled email client! With Beyond Inbox, you’ll never have to worry about falling victim to lost or corrupted email servers, hacked accounts, even forgotten passwords!

    Why do you need to backup your email?

  • You may forget your password
  • You may accidentally delete some messages
  • Automatic loss of email
  • Your account may be hacked
  • Blackout of Email servers
  • Upper limit on data storage
  • Backing up your email from one or many accounts is absurdly simple with Beyond Inbox. Backup your emails to another email account or store them on your computer’s hard drive as individual files in a non-proprietary open format. Best of all, if you choose to backup to your computer, you can easily search for specific information using Desktop Search, no matter which account it originated from!

    Restoring your email messages in the event of a disaster is quick and easy, thanks to Beyond Inbox’s wonderful Drag and Drop Restore functionality — just drag your selected messages back to your IMAP account, and you’re good to go!

    What about those emails that you want to keep, but aren’t necessarily critically important? Stop clogging up valuable inbox space, and instead use Beyond Inbox to archive them, in the same way you perform email backups!

    For categorization purposes, nothing beats Beyond Inbox! Just search and tag selected email messages (such as payment confirmations), then either copy or move these messages to a different email account or file folder.

    Why to backup with Beyond Inbox?

    There are many email services like Outlook Express, which themselves provide options for email backup. There are also a few software tools available in the market that claim to backup your email. These are the advantages of using Beyond Inbox for email backups:

    No more single large backup file for entire inbox. Beyond Inbox stores each and every email as a separate file: This way you can store different email at different places and you do not need to worry about backing up one large file. Most of the other backup services store all your emails in a single file causing one huge back up file for entire account.
    Much safer backups. No risk of deleting email from backup while deleting from inbox. Beyond Inbox does not work in synch mode: Once you back up your data on your local disk using Beyond Inbox, it is not at all linked with the email account. Most of the email backup services work in sync mode however, and hence, when an email is deleted from the email account, it is deleted from the backup also. This is a very big advantage that Beyond Inbox offers over its competitors.
