June Demo by David Aston

CopyPaste 4.4.2
CopyPaste X 1.2

One of the early wonders of the Mac was its revolutionary ability to do copy and paste across various applications. Unlike other areas in the Mac's system software that have changed and progressed over the years, copying and pasting has not evolved. How many times have you found yourself going back and forth copying in one application and pasting in a different application, wishing to yourself that you could copy 5-10 items at a time, then go to another application and paste each of these items. CopyPaste gives you this and much more. It turns out that having additional clipboards is incredibly useful. CopyPaste eliminates tedious repetitive work and increases your ability to get the job done. Requires OS 7.1+ or OS X 10.1+. $20.

DiskTracker 2.2
DiskTracker X 2.2

DiskTracker is the complete disk cataloging and labeling system for the Apple Macintosh. It features an extremely intuitive user interface and a bunch of useful features. DiskTracker has these great features, plus many, many more:

Requires OS 7.5.3+ or OS X. $30.

FileTyper 5.5.1 (Cls)
FileTyper is the classic "drop box" program for quickly changing types, creators, attribute flags and date stamps. It includes many powerful features such as batches, filtering, and directory searches. Requires OS 7.0+. $10.

Iconographer 2.3
Iconographer X 2.3

Iconographer is a icon editor. It allows you to both change the icons of items, as well as edit the icon resources used by various programs. Iconographer has been created from the ground up to deal with many icon formats. These include: classic Mac OS (8-bit icons only), Mac OS 8.5+ (32-bit icons with 8-bit masks), Mac OS X (128 x 128 icons in .icns files), Windows (.ico files), and Mac OS X Server (48 x 48 icons in .tiff files). Due to its flexibility, Iconographer is useful to both beginners and advanced users. It can be used for a wide range of tasks, ranging from simply creating some customized folder icons to editing complex resource files for an application to converting icons between platforms. Requires OS 7.5.3+ or OS X. $15.

KeySwapper 1.11 (Cls)
Are you missing any keys on your new iMac, G3, G4, PowerBook or iBook keyboard such as the Forward Delete key, End key or the function keys F13-F15? Wishing you had these keys? KeySwapper will allow you to use any key(s) you like to emulate other keys that your computer may not have (such as the Forward Delete key, the Page Up key, the End key, function keys F13-F15, Delete, Arrow keys, etc.)! You can also disable the Caps Lock key if you wish (very useful for PowerBooks that seem to always have the Caps Lock key down when you didn't want it that way! This program performs functions that will benefit any Mac user and is extremely simple to set up and use. You can now define all those useless function keys on your extended keyboard (or any other keys) to perform extremely useful tasks! Requires OS 6+. $5.

MacMAME 0.5.8 (Cbn)
MacMAME is a port of the PC multi-emulator MAME. It allows you to play many of the classic arcade games from the early eighties on your Macintosh. It accomplishes this through emulation of the original hardware and the use of the original ROM code from those games. Requires OS 9.0+ or OS X 10.1+. Free.

QuickPop 2.11 (Cls)
QuickPop does just two things, but was designed to do them very well. The first is to allow you to assign "Hotkeys" to up to fifty (50) applications, documents, Apple Menu Items, control panels, FKEYs, monitor depth (colors) or speaker volume settings. When the "Hotkeys" are pressed from within most any application, the selected item will instantly launch (or change speaker or monitor settings). The second is to allow you to have a menu pop up anywhere on the screen when you hold a key (option, command, control or shift in any combination) and click and hold down the mouse button. From this pop-up menu you can launch your favorite documents, applications, control panels, FKEYs, Apple Menu Items, change monitor depth (colors) settings, change the speaker level or switch to any other running application. Requires OS 7.0. $10.

Quit CSM 2.2 (Cls)
With Quit CSM you can:

Requires OS 7.5+ and Control Strip. $8.

Beware geeks bearing grifts.-------------------------------------------------

Tip O' the Month

Version Tracker keeps you up-to-date on the latest releases of shareware, freeware, commercial ware, and any other kinda-ware. But within the last month the site underwent extensive revisions. Unless you subscribe to their service, at whatever $ per month they are charging, you cannot go back to previous archive days. This is most unfortunate, as I do that a lot. Since I don't have a lot of dough, I'm not going to subscribe. So the new product releases column is going to be decidedly skinnier in future. Sorry about that. I don't like what Version Tracker did, but I concede SOMEBODY has to pay the bills.



Mac basics we sometimes forget


NEW PRODUCT RELEASES 04/18 thru 04/30

My choices, only, out of hundreds of items every month. Drop me a note for YOUR favorite. Not listed are important monthly updates for anti-virus software: McAfee, Norton, VirusBarrier, Virex. You might check out Version Tracker for more.
® means update to recently released CDOQ item. Wish we could catch them all....
