Now hear this: The Soulmen, developers of the best writing app on the Mac, plan to release a new version of Ulysses on August 3. Ulysses will then be at version 2.6. The update will be free for existing customers. With v.6, publishing a blog post on WordPress will be a matter of exporting directly from Ulysses. WordPress authors will be able to publish their texts with a few clicks on macOS and a few taps on iOS. They won’t have to export as HTML (as I do) or Markdown and then paste the lot to the WordPress backend.
Ergonis Software released KeyCue 8.1, a new version of the company’s highly acclaimed keyboard shortcut cheat sheet. So what, you’ll say, to which I would answer: KeyCue 8 introduced a clever new way to define triggers. These can be used to perform different actions.

And that, my friends, allows Typinator users to quickly show snippets in a head-up display and insert them with one click.
Ergonis Software today announced the release of Typinator 6.9, a new version of their popular text expander. The new version offers improved import of TextExpander snippets, an extended DOuble CAps exceptions set, support for the Sogou input method for Chinese, and 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.
DssW, the developer of the only Mac energy saving software worthy of that name, released Power Manager 4.5 for OS X. This release adds new triggers, Schedule Assistant tasks, and numerous refinements and is fully compatible with El Capitan (as was its predecessor). I personally am really excited about the new capabilities that let you […]
My test unit of the Doxie Go, released about three years ago, still works today, so why should I want to upgrade to one of the new models, the Doxie Go Plus or Go Wi-Fi? Well, for starters because Apparent offers one of the newer models at an upgrade price and I don’t even have to send the old one back. But there’s more: a better image quality should be part of the two new models, while the one that is really, really interesting has Wi-Fi.
