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.
Today $3.99 Normally $8.99




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.

WindowClipMBI is a menu bar app that takes single shots and composite shots of windows, including menus and tool tips, of any other app to the clipboard. The app is conveniently accessible from the menu bar all the time, from any app. There is no need to remember numerous key combinations or search through layers of windows for generating multi-window shots.

What can WindowClipMBI do for me?

Displays thumbnails of all app windows.

The menu contains images of all current visible app windows, including menus and other auxiliary windows, like the menu bar, tool tips, Desktop and Dock. Simply select a menu item to take its picture and put it on the clipboard, optionally opening it in Preview also.

Scale, filter and reflect clips.

Clippings can be scaled, and special effects can be applied, such as converting to monochrome. Reflections can be added to each clipping, with various options.

Timed screen shots and composites.

Screen shots and “all windows” composites can be timed so you can set up the windows prior to capture. For screen shots, options for including the current mouse cursor or hiding the Desktop is available. Composites can be full screen or trimmed to the smallest bounding box. WindowClipMBi is also available from an app’s Services menu.

System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.5 or later. Mountain Lion Ready.

Developer Interview…

Hi, my name is Joe Pagliaro, and I am the founder of Limit Point Software. I have been developing Mac software for about 20 years, from System 7 to today’s Mac OS X Mountain Lion.

Now, we not only develop for the Mac, but of course also for the iOS platform. This is a very exciting time due to the growing synergy between the iOS and Mac platforms. I love developing for these platforms because there are so many possibilities and I am excited about the future products we will provide for them.

Now for questions and answers related to this product and the Mac.

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

    The ability to list all apps that currently have visible windows in the easy to reach, ever present system menu bar menu and to preview each of those windows from within that menu and take their picture.

  • Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    I actually created this app for myself to take pictures of all my other app’s windows. I have written many apps and WindowClipMBI facilitates technical support, documentation and website creation for all my apps.

  • What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac platform.?

    A great source of interest, and one of the best perks of being a Mac developer is attending the annual World Wide Developer Conference where all new things Mac are exhibited by the people who created them.

    Also interesting is the constant generation and evolution of an enormous amount of fun technologies and requisite hardware, including the close symbiotic relationship between the software and hardware.

    It is also interesting how Mac development is made possible by a complete set of many free development tools for building, testing and distributing apps.

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

    One of the features I like most about WindowClipMBI is its ability to create timed composite shots of an app’s windows. But I also like the ability to create full screenshots that include the mouse cursor, whatever it may be at the time the shot is taken, and the integration of one of our other apps, Shade, which “cleans up” the desktop for lucid full screenshots.

  • What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?

    Through all the years I have been developing on the Mac I have been immensly impressed with how most products remain almost 100% reliable and stable across upgrades, even major version updates. For example, with Mountain Lion absolutely no modifications to any of our numerous products were needed for compatibility!

    OS upgrades have enabled us to enhance our apps in unexpected ways, or even create apps that would have been very difficult otherwise. For example, WindowClipMBI itself was easy to create because of a technology introduced in Mac OS 10.5 Leopard.

    With the introduction of Mac OS 10.6 Lion we took advantage of the opportunity to enhance and perfect almost all of our apps for inclusion in the new Mac App Store, and that has dramatically increased our success and excitement to be a Mac developer.

  • What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?

    My favorite app has been, for a very long time, Mathematica, by Wolfram Research. This is because I am a mathematician! Math is what I majored in at college and attended grad school for, and back then I used Mathematica a lot to aid in my course and research work.

  • What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?

    To include the windows of apps on other machines on the local, or even remote, network. Less improbable/impossible: It would also be nice to be able to selectively include multiple windows from any and all apps, selected from a graphical list display.

  • What would you like a user to ask you?

    Will you always support this product for as long as possible? Answer: yes.

  • What should I ask that I’m forgetting?

    How long did it take for you to write this app? Answer: just a few days because of the development environment and the system software at my disposal. This is one of the great advantages of developing for Mac and iOS, speed and ease of development.

  • What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?

    This is a very simple and straightforward app, so I do not get very many questions about it at all. One question that is interesting is the inquiry as to whether I will support other destinations of the snapshot, such as a file or an email message attachment. Answer: It is planned. Currently the output is the clipboard, and optionally a new document in Preview app.

User feedback is a huge asset to me, and I always encourage users to ask questions and offer suggestions for my products. I very frequently implement user suggestions. So if anyone has any questions or feedback during or after this promo, please send them to me at joe@limit-point.com. Thanks, and enjoy!

Logoist

“Easy to use and incredibly versatile, this program will make designing logos, icons and other graphics a breeze.”

Normally: $19.99

ZOT Price: $9.99

Fabulous Value
★★★★★

by Dr.Bop
This is an amazingly full-featured vector graphics editing program. The screen shots with (kinda cheesy) sample logos really don’t do it justice. With completely configurable and editable layers, the capacity to import and modify your own art, save your own custom presets, export individual layers as .png files or as a .psd file (and on and on), Logoist is a stunning value at twenty bucks. (So the ZOT Price is Out of This World!) I’m no artist but was able to execute immediately ideas I had in mind — faster to finish in Logoist than the time it took me to just START with the demo versions of more “full featured” apps. These only left me baffled — and with an empty canvas. I turned to Logoist, and BOOM!, projects drafted, reviewed, refined, exported and implemented in a few hours. Perfect.



Available Exclusively in the Mac App Store. 

macZOT and Avis Nocturna have joined forces to bring you this Super Popular App at 75% Off! Try the Demo here – and Buy it in the MAS while the price is ROCK BOTTOM!






Logos, Title Art, Icons, Banners, Web Site Elements, Greeting Cards, Buttons, iBooks Author Titles, Picture Collages, Desktop Backgrounds….You name it!

Create stunning imagery with Logoist for Mac. Logoist allows you to design images using layers, sophisticated effects and eye-catching shaders. Logoist comes with over 3.000 vector clipart images, over 200 configureable effect presets and over 150 patterns!

Click to Developer’s Site for Extensive info…

Feature Highlights

• Layers
Layers are the centerpiece of Logoist. Insert rectangles, ellipses, text, clipart and paths to create the basic shape of your image. Layers can even be combined by boolean operations like substract or add.

• Shaders
Logoist offers sophisticated shader algorithms that allow you to create metal, glass, plastic and several other materials for your work ranging from a subtile embossed look to a glossy and reflective metal or glass appearance.

• Effects
Assign as many effects as you like, for example inner and outer shadow, glow, blur or borders to layers. Create presets from your effect configuration to easily apply them to other layers. Combined effects with shaders in any way you like.

• Borders
Every layer in Logoist can be bordered with either a flat color, a pattern, a gradient or even using a shader for awesome results. Add multiple borders combined with other effects to any layer if required.

• Clipart
Logoist includes over 3.000 vector clipart images for designing your logo, heading or icon. Of course, effects and shaders can be applied to all clipart images you’ve added to your Logoist project.

• Patterns
A huge collection of patterns is also included with Logoist. Every layer can be filled with a pattern. Additionaly apply effects or shaders like bevel, inner and outer shadow or glow. Patterns can also be used as borders on all layers.

• Transformations
Text and clipart can be transformed using several built-in methods like trapezoid, pinch, ripple, wave or sheer transformations. This way, you can bend text around shapes to create impressive results.

• Easy to use
Logoist features a well thought-out user interface which makes it easy to understand and use. Built exclusively for Mac OS X, Logoist nicely integrates all features OS X Lion offers like Versions, Autosave, Resume and Fullscreen Mode.

• Paths
Editing paths has never been easier: Logoist comes with a sophisticated tool to edit paths including Bézier paths and straight shapes which can even be combined with other paths, clipart and text using boolean operations.

• Fonts
Logoist features a handy font selector that previews all fonts installed on your Mac as well as a live preview of the text including all shaders and effects applied to it. This way, you can easily choose the best fitting font for your composition.

• Samples
Logoist comes with over 100 samples you can use as templates for your own logos, headlines or banners. Furthermore, several tutorials are included teaching you how to get the most out of Logoist.

• Export
Logoist works completely resolution independent. Export your artwork either in screen resolution or print-ready resolutions of up to 600dpi in several file formats. You can use the results in Pages, Keynote, iWeb, Microsoft Office and almost all other apps, Mac or PC.

• Native Photoshop PSD export
Use Photoshop, Pixelmator or any other graphics app supporting the Photoshop file format to refine your logo or include it in an existing project. Logoist exports Photoshop PSD files including layer information and blending modes in up to 600 DPI.

• Technology
Logoist uses advanced technologies from OS X to offer a flawless uninterrupted workflow. Grand Central Dispatch distributes the work evenly to all available processor cores of your Mac. Most shaders and effects work directly on your Macs graphics card by using Apples Core Image technology.

• Ready for OS X Mountain Lion
Logoist already supports OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion offering iCloud Document Storage for automatically saving your Logoist documents in the cloud and syncing them to all your Macs. Furthermore, Logoist uses the Share Sheets feature from Mountain Lion allowing you to mail your work to your colleagues or post them on Twitter, Flickr or Facebook directly from Logoist.

System Requirements
Logoist requires Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is fully supported. It fully makes use of 64 bit capable processors found in all recent Macs but also runs on older 32 bit based Macs.

AvisNocturna Software
has been founded in 2001 and has been a developer of Mac Software ever since. The flagship product TerraRay has garnered a large following with a dedicated Flickr group and has received numerous favorable reviews, for example from TUAW.com (4 out of 5 stars).


Developer Interview
Mendel Kucharzeck of Avis Nocturna Speaks…

1 What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?
It is common that you spent hours in graphics apps to get a nice and unique effect, for example glass text, right. In Logoist, it is just a few clicks away. The best thing is that all effects are completely configureable to adjust them to your personal taste and your current project.


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

Simple tasks require so much effort in common graphics apps, that had to change and it did with the arrival of Logoist in the Mac App Store.


3 What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac and/or iOS platforms?

Mac users are spoiled. They demand eye-catching apps, great features at a reasonable price. Users push developers into making great products!

4 What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?
Simply add a few layers, select presets for these layers to get a first impression of the powerful features.

5 What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?
For well-written software, OS upgrades are mostly a non-issue. Don’t write bad code and test early with beta OS releases.

6 What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?
Despite having a horrible user interface I have to say that it is Cinema 4D by Maxon. Never saw a software this powerful.

7 What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?
Version 1.1 will be available in August bringing background presets, flames filter, better path handling and maybe video tutorials.

8 What’s your upgrade policy?
Free upgrades in the foreseeable future (definitely not in the next 2-3 years!)

9 What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?
The question I receive the most is that how the sample documents are created. Look closely at the layer list at the right of the main window. Check each layer and the associated effects to get a hang to how you can create your own effect combinations.

Everybody loves digital cameras because they are easy to use and there’s no film or developing costs involved.

    So simple – Your Grandmother could use it!



    “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. This will be another tool that will fit very well in my marketing.” — David Quisenberry, Images That Speak, McKinney Texas

I have seen others even tried them but the ease and i’ll admit the pricing too totally hooked me!I I already made 3 Apps and the clients loved them!” — Adita Perez, Adita’s Photography, New Jersey

    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…
