  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. Anki - friendly, intelligent flashcards

    Free software for learning stuff off flashcards.

  4. RipIt

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

  5. 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)

  6. 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)

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. 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.

  11. 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)

  12. 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)

  13. 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)

  14. 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.

  15. 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.]

  16. 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.

  17. 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)

  18. Cornerstone vs. Versions, Again

    Comparing Mac Subversion clients. (via Daring Fireball)

  19. 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.

  20. Versions - Mac Subversion Client (SVN)

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

  21. Billings 3 / journal / hicksdesign

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

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. iSquint - iPod Video Made Easy.

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

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. HyperPort - HyperCard Export Utility

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

  29. WideMail

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

  30. 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.

  31. 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.

  32. Adactio: Journal — Hacky holidays on OS X

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

  33. Software projects - For Omnigraffle

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

  34. Leopard finally supporting ssh-agent at login

    To remember when I upgrade. (via Blech)

  35. 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.)

  36. 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)

  37. Orbicule | Undercover | F.A.Q.

    Fascinating software and service to help trace your Mac if it’s stolen. Even sounds vaguely feasible. (via Daring Fireball)

  38. Taskpaper

    To-do list organizer application for Mac which uses plain text files. (via Daring Fireball)

  39. iLAS

    Almost identical to iTunes-LAME, except it works. And with a newer version of LAME. What I’m now using.

  40. StuMoD - freight train of wit and cleverosity

    NMP3 Ripper is another alternative for encoding MP3s using LAME, but I haven’t tried it.

  41. Max from sbooth.org

    Blacktree’s iTunes-LAME script for encoding MP3s with LAME malfunctions with recent versions of iTunes. Max is an alternative, but seems a bit overkill just for this job.

  42. Plain text wiki (20 May 2007, Interconnected)

    Great idea from Matt Webb: make wiki-style linked pages in TextMate. I think I’ve wanted exactly this without realising it before.

  43. Living-e AG: MAMP - Mac - Apache - MySQL - PHP

    One-click install of Apache, MySQL, PHP for running sites locally on your Mac without all the httpd.conf etc malarkey.

  44. Apple - Pro - Tips - Become the Ultimate Menu Master

    I never knew that. If only I could get a Control key working on my non-Apple external keyboard.

  45. Common fonts to all versions of Windows & Mac equivalents (Browser safe fonts) - Web design tips & tricks

    Because I’m always using losing this and having to Google for it or something similar.

  46. Review: iDefrag for OS X - PaulStamatiou.com

    Raves for a disk defragging tool for Macs, and discussion about the fact it is needed despite what many think.

  47. Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime components

    Makes QuickTime work with all the video formats you’re actually likely to use. Free. (via Haddock)

  48. Correo - a new mail client for OS X

    Thunderbird-based email client from the people who do Camino. (via Blech)

  49. How to Backup Your DVD Movies

    Excellent screencast on how to back up DVDs on your Mac. (via Daring Fireball)
