  1. iPhoto Export - The Possibilities (Google Translate)

    iPhoto to Aperture to Lightroom seems like the most promising way to move to Lightroom and keep your metadata. Can’t believe it’s this hard.

  2. Burn - Home

    Really nice and easy Mac app for burning files to different kinds of disc. Also, free. (via Infovore)

  3. ImageOptim – a PNG/JPEG/GIF optimizer for Mac OS X

    Good. To get my PNGs to be the same colour as CSS backgrounds in FF/IE I had to use the PNGCrush optimiser to remove gAMA, sRGB, ICCP and cHRM. Now you know.

  4. PhoneView for iPhone - iPhone Disk Mode, SMS, Voicemail, Call History, Music, Photos, Notes Access - Ecamm Network

    Among other things, lets you export all of your iPhone SMSes. $20 saved me spending more time messing around with binary plist files, sqlite, etc.

  5. Burn a playable DVD from a VIDEO_TS folder - Mac OS X Hints

    Just works. I tried a couple of free GUI things, neither of which worked. This command line thing did.

  6. iClarified - Mac OS X - How to Setup Facebook Chat Within iChat

    I didn’t know you could do this. A bit odd having my “Facebook friends” (rather than my usual, “online” friends) there all the time. Plus they think I’m using Facebook *all day*.

  7. Hidden - Apple Mac theft recovery for just $20

    Annoyingly lower-cased, but sounds good, and cheap. (via Preoccupations)

  8. MemoryMiner: Digital Storytelling for Macintosh & The Web

    “It lets you zero in on the stories depicted in your photos by linking them to each other based on people, places and time.” Haven’t tried it, unclear why I should.

  9. Install Movable Type on a Mac - Adventures in Movable Type

    This is always more pain than it should be. A handy guide.

  10. Video Monkey

    “A free video encoding application exclusively for Mac … it borrows heavily from the Visual Hub video conversion tool.” (via Yoz)

  11. Cadence | your music. your motion.

    Mainly for Cadence Desktop, which claims to apply BPM values to your iTunes songs. I’ve heard that before, but you never know. (via Lee)

  12. Equinux - Mac software to watch, chat and record digital TV

    The Tube. Looks like an interesting alternative to something like EyeTV for watching and recording TV, if you have a tuner. Plus social gubbins.

  13. iPhone / iPod Touch Backup Extractor

    Need to try this out. I’d like an archive of my SMSes and this might help me extract them.

  14. Fader | iPlayer Grabber, the iPlayer downloader for Mac OS X

    iPlayer has ceased to function on my G4 PowerBook - it gets about one frame per second. But iPlayer Grabber lets me watch things on it. Hurrah!

  15. Anki - friendly, intelligent flashcards

    Free software for learning stuff off flashcards.

  16. RipIt

    I used this to rip some DVDs a couple of weeks ago and it Just Worked, where others failed.

  17. Run Internet Explorer 6 (or IE7, or IE8) images in VMware Fusion on Mac OS X - Ryan Parman

    I’ve avoided IE 8 so far, but guess I’ll need to give it a whirl soon. Harrumph. (via Tom Taylor)

  18. Developer Color Picker

    Quite handy, although I wish it gave the option to display the Color Values in CSS friendly hex too. (via Daring Fireball)

  19. Tow.com » MsgFiler

    This is a handy little thing to make Apple’s Mail application a bit more wieldy if you have lots of folders.

  20. LittleSnapper - Screenshot and Website Capture for Mac OS X Leopard

    Extremely handy for taking screenshots of websites. Very slightly flaky in places but otherwise a joy.

  21. MailSteward

    A pay-for Mac app that archives email into SQLite or MySQL databases. Looks pretty awesome for searchable backups. Need the pro version for large volumes of email (>100,000 messages).

  22. Safari 4 benchmarked: 42x faster than IE 7, 3.5x faster than Firefox 3 - Crave at CNET UK

    Shockingly bad bar charts. 3D bars drawn in perspective don’t help with comparisons.

  23. iCraig » Geotagger

    A Mac app for using Google Earth to add GPS coordinates to photos’ EXIF data. A shame iPhoto doesn’t update its cached data though. (via Lee)

  24. Fraser Speirs – On the Flickr support in iPhoto ‘09

    I know Speirs could be accused of bias but it doesn’t sound like iPhoto ‘09’s Flickr integration is going to be any use to me at all. Sounds awful. (via Daring Fireball)

  25. Mathusalem - Google Code

    Interesting-sounding backup utility for Mac OS X. Backs up in the background to “local drives, iDisk, WebDAV, AFP, SMB, FTP, SFTP or Amazon S3”. Maybe for when StrongSpace finally disappears. (via Tom Taylor on Twitter)

  26. Bandwagon update - Bandwagon Forum

    I thought I’d check out how that iTunes music online backup software was doing and found this exercise in failing to manage users’ expectations. 14 months of “it’ll be ready soon…” Ouch.

  27. Online Backup, Data Backup & Remote Backup Solutions from Mozy.com – Welcome

    One more online backup solution. Heard good things about this in the past I think. [UPDATE: Cool Tools readers gave it the thumbs down.]

  28. CrashPlan – Automatic Offsite Backup » Features - Tech Specs

    Another online backup thing, to backup to your own machine elsewhere or (for a subscription) to their server.

  29. TidBITS Safe Computing: Backblaze Launches Mac Beta of Online Backup Service

    Looks like a great online backup service, currently in private beta. (via Daring Fireball)

  30. Cornerstone vs. Versions, Again

    Comparing Mac Subversion clients. (via Daring Fireball)

  31. Changing the short username in Leopard | Macworld

    This was very useful after Migration Assistant insisted I couldn’t have the same username on my new MacBook as on my old PowerBook. Grrrr.

  32. Versions - Mac Subversion Client (SVN)

    Nice looking Subversion client for the Mac (er, like it says). (via TUAW)

  33. Billings 3 / journal / hicksdesign

    Review of a Mac-based invoicing/time-keeping thing. (via Daring Fireball)

  34. Ukelele - Mac OS X Keyboard Layout Editor

    Could be your solution if you’re trying to use a UK Windows keyboard (or something else non-Apple) with a Mac.

  35. Synium - MacFamilyTree

    Very whizzy-looking Mac software for managing one’s family tree and outputting it in many different ways, including weird 3D grids and a globe.

  36. iSquint - iPod Video Made Easy.

    Free converter for making video into iPod/iPhone-friendly video. (via Haddock)

  37. Nkreeger.com - projects

    “… a native cocoa mail client that uses the Mozilla mail/news library and the gecko browser view that Camino uses.” Early days.

  38. Jaikoz Audio Tagger

    Multi-platform ID3 tagging app, for most kinds of music file, using MusicBrainz and MusicIP. 15 quid, but powerful, even if a bit, you know, Java.

  39. AntiRSI - TECH.inhelsinki.nl

    I’ve tried a few apps that nag you to take a break from the computer. I was using TimeOut but this manages to be both more subtle and more insistent.

  40. HyperPort - HyperCard Export Utility

    Handy. I must try this while I still have a Mac that can run Classic. (via Daring Fireball)

  41. WideMail

    Another Mail.app plugin that gives you a three column interface. Better / worse / different to Letterbox?

  42. Aaron.harnly.net » Letterbox

    A plugin for Mail.app that rearranges the interface into three columns, which might help me survive the switch from Eudora.

  43. Eudora Mailbox Cleaner

    After nearly 14 years with Eudora I might switch to Mail.app when I upgrade to Leopard. This looks like just what I need for exporting and importing my life safely.

  44. Adactio: Journal — Hacky holidays on OS X

    How to set up virtual hosts, PHP5 and MySQL on Leopard, for when I upgrade soonish.

  45. Software projects - For Omnigraffle

    Handy scripts for Omnigraffle. Stars, charts, graphs, spirals, arcs, etc.

  46. Leopard finally supporting ssh-agent at login

    To remember when I upgrade. (via Blech)

  47. Mozy Online Backup: Simple, Automatic, Secure

    Simple-sounding online backup service for Windows or Mac. (via Haddock) (UPDATE, 2009: Heard not so good feedback about it, trying Backblaze instead.)

  48. GarageBuy Homepage

    Free Mac application for browsing eBay and buying stuff. Much nicer than the site itself. There’s also a pay-for app for selling stuff. (via Yoz)
