If you’re a freelance, a time tracking app to prepare for your invoices is a must-have unless you never bother to see how much time you spend on tasks. And if you ever find yourself calculating a time-based fee, a time tracking app should really be capable to automatically add up the numbers for invoicing. A small Mauritius-based team of developers may have the time-tracking app you’re looking for. Minco 2 lives in your menu bar, has a small memory footprint and tracks time as none other.
Elgato’s EVE is, as you know, a Home Kit system for iOS 8.4 and later. On my iPad Air 2 it runs on iOS 9.x and I’m very happy with its performance and feature set. There was one tiny thing that I wanted, though and the latest update of the EVE app has finally made me a perfectly happy chap.
I’ve only recently grown accustomed to version 5 and here pops up version 6 already, and I love it from the first moment. Agilebits just updated 1Password and it has more power than ever to keep all your digital data secure. I would dare to go as far as to claim that if you’re not using 1Password, you’re using the wrong app for creating and securely saving passwords, credit card and passport data and much more.
PopChar has been the graphic designer’s award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts for a long time. Version X 7.4 adds support for the flags available in the Apple Color Emoji font, which have been added in Yosemite 10.10.3. These flags are not individual characters — they are created by combining “regional indicator symbols”, and you would have to know them for entering a particular flag by hand.
With the ability to listen to a Qobuz stream, use sound improvement plug-ins and the optional A+ Remote app for iPad and iPhone, Audirvana’s developer has once again raised the bar for audiophile listening pleasure for free. And there’s even more.
Issues represent problems or setbacks within your project, while risks are events that could happen and disrupt the planning of your project. Merlin Project contains issue management and professional-grade risk management.
Merlin Project comes with a risk score system to enable you to evaluate the seriousness of a risk, its probability and impact.
In the previous article we covered the various ways to enrich your project activities with information, files, etc. In Part II we’ll cover every Attachment in detail. We’ll start with Checklists, Events, Files and Information. In Part III we’ll delve deeper into Issues and Risks.
Every project has issues and comes with risks. Just as often, you will find yourself in need of associating checklists, events or files with activities. Meet Attachments, a feature unique to Merlin Project. Attachments are management features that won’t change the duration or timing of a project, but that bear much needed information about an activity. Compare them to e-mail attachments in Apple Mail. In Merlin Project, they can be checklists, calendar events, files, risks and issues, and information. You can have Merlin Project show you these Attachments in a dynamic secondary View.
Merlin Project can be used as a free Microsoft Project Viewer application. Normally, you can’t read Microsoft Project files on the Mac, but with Merlin Project you can. Merlin Project, with all its project management features fully available, is the only app on the Mac that allows you to view Microsoft Project files. Alternatively, you can try out Merlin Project for 30 days and leave it on your system afterwards — it will automatically turn into read-only mode. And if you only want to view project files, both Microsoft Project and Merlin Project files, all you need to do is select “Use without License” in the Welcome screen.
