Applications that I tried but did not find useful. I deleted the software from my system.
This application allows a user to browse through the history of his browsers. It shows each link in the history file as a thumbnail. It is very nice, only I have not much user for it.
I received a PDF document, which I can not print. So I tried this app to see whether I can open it. It allows me to open only the first page though. And just for one document this application is much to expensive to buy.
An application to download and view videopadcasts. I do not like it to much.
I was looking for a nice architectural drawing app. I had a short look at this one.
This service allows a user to store his files on a central server and synchronise with one (or more) computers. Seems nice when one has broadband, but not for me at the moment.
Tried this game on my computer, but is does not work right. Rendering is wrong and it is to slow.
To me this a silly application. It allows you to create an area with music instruments. Tapping on an instrument will sound the releated instrument. Maybe nice for kids, but not for me.
DrumThing is a simple application which allows to create your own rhythms. It works OK, but it is a bit too limited. I like to have more bars for instance. ANd I want a Djembe-kit, but that might around Internet somewhere.
This application allows you to find the sunrise and sunset over the world. It also shows the Analemma, the time difference between true and mean time. It shows the times either on a world view or on a time view. Nice to see that in the summer it is never dark in the summer (according to astronomers).
Nice application to play a bit with. But I am not sure who has the need for such an application.
An interesting application. It shows geographic things on top of the earth globe. You can see the weather, cities, volcanos, earthquakes and webcams.
Interesting app, but why do I need it?
A stupid name for an application. It allows you to see countries in the world. It starts pretty slow, I guess that loading the image of the earth takes a very long time.
Looks nice, but why do I need this? It does not seem totaly MacOS-X compatible either.
I had a brief look at this application. This application allows you to write HTML-code. I like the preview pane, but I hardly look at the HTML nowadays. I prefer a WYSIWYG approach to web-site development. Only when there is trouble I look at the code.
I am starting to think about a new wbsite and I decied to try out one of those easy website builders. I quite like the interface of this program. It is easy to add pages and easy to change layout. What I like especially is the preview option. That is pretty fast.
What I really miss and really need is the creation of sub-pages.
Real Mac Software
An application to manage your book collection. This is a pretty good application. It has a little bit a three pane approach, although one pane is drawer and thus not always visible. One can create various lists including smart lists. It is pretty good in finding various books through the ISBN-number and this includes Dutch books. I however do not like their interface to much. It could be slicker. And their menu’s are a mess from a usability point of view. They should read Apple’s guidelines and put things where they belong. It has promise, but they can do better.
I had a brief look at this application for managing your books library. I did not like the interface very much. I am now fond of the three pane interfaces. In this interface there is to much clicking. Finding books was pretty good, although Dutch books are still lacking.
