The Sweet Setup

A new project by Shawn Blanc:

The Sweet Setup exists because I wanted a site that highlights the software that has proven to be the best, not necessarily the newest.

Here we will be recommending only the apps which are proven to be the best rather than new.

There is never a lack of new apps and shiny objects for my Apple devices. Websites and blogs that write about these new apps are a dime a dozen as well. I really like the idea of a site dedicated to identifying the best. That's really what I'm interested in—the best, not the newest.

I definitely plan to follow The Sweet Setup. If you use a Mac, iPad or iPhone, you might consider doing the same.

App Deals Edition

 

Over for iOS Free (normally $1.99) Why not add text or artwork to that picture of food that you’re about to post to Instagram?

Day One for iOS Free (normally $4.99) This is the best journaling app out there. Also available for the Mac. Syncs via iCloud or Dropbox.

And More

One Day Remaining for MacHeist nanoBundle 3 ($9.99)

MacHeist nanoBundle 3 The clock is ticking on the MacHeist nanoBundle 3—you've got one day left to pick it up. At $9.99, this bundle is a great value. Here's are the highlights:

Path Finder ($40) – This app has been on my wish list for a long time now. Path Finder is a powerful file manager and Finder replacement for your Mac. It was unlocked as a part of the bundle after 30,000 had been sold. I expect to use this app daily.

Fantastical ($20) – I already own Fantastical. It's my go–to calendar application 95% of the time. It allows you to create meetings and appointments using natural language.

Clarify ($30) – This app makes quick work of creating how–tos, instructions, and tutorials using screenshots, annotations, and text. I'm really excited about putting this app to work.

AirServer ($15) – This is another app I've had my eye on for some time now. AirServer allows your Mac to receive AirPlay feeds, similar to Apple TV. Slick.

xScope ($30) – A set of measuring tools for designers and developers. I'm not a designer or developer, but I can see this app coming in handy every now and again.

iStopMotion ($50) – Create your own stop motion animation. I doubt I'll use this app often, but I'm definitely looking forward to playing around with it.

Little Inferno ($10) – Burn stuff.

CleanMyMac 2 ($40) – I've never been a big fan of utilities like this, but I might just give it a try. I can use all the help I can get getting rid of junk and freeing up space on my modest–sized SSD.

Totals ($40) – A tool for creating invoices.

?????? – There is one application yet to be revealed. It's identity remains a mystery.

This bundle includes several great applications and it's selling at an outstanding price. Jump on it soon—there's only one day left.
