Dare to be Creative releases SlidePad 1.2 – Sliding Note Taker

    Dare to be Creative Ltd. today announced the release of SlidePad 1.2, an update to its note-taking application for Mac OS X Leopard. SlidePad, recently awarded an Apple Staff Pick, allows users to quickly and unobtrusively write down notes, thoughts, and ideas on a notepad that slides in from the side of the screen. The new features include importing and exporting notes, more formatting options such as bulleted and numbered lists, as well as customizations to adapt to the user's workflow.

    Importing and exporting notes:
    With the new version users can import notes from RTF, HTML, Microsoft Word and text documents. Moreover, users can export notes to RTF for backup or for editing in word processors such as TextEdit, Microsoft Word or Apple Pages.

    More formatting options:
    In the new version users can create bulleted and numbered lists, change the line spacing, set the text alignment and many more formatting options that would normally be found in a word processor.

    Adapting to the user's workflow:
    The update allows users to resize the width and height of the notepad area, as well as turn off sliding the notepad in and out with the mouse and instead work only with the keyboard shortcut.

    Minimum Requirements:
    * Mac OS X Version 10.5 or higher
    * Universal Binary for Intel and PowerPC

    Pricing and Availability:
    SlidePad is $20 (USD), and available as a free download from the SlidePad website. It runs initially in a 15-day trial mode with all features active. This is a free upgrade for registered users.

      Toughturtle Launches AppFiend 1.1 – App Rating Service on App Store

        Toughturtle announced today the availability of its free AppFiend application for the iPhone and iPod Touch on the Apple App Store. This simple and efficient application rating system eliminates the need to constantly tell your friends what Apps you are holding.

        "Since the iPhone and iPod Touch offers over 25,000 Apps to its users, it is difficult to know which are the best and worst. Also you never know who has written the reviews on the App Store", said Todd Barnes, Lead Developer of Toughturtle. "We hope people find AppFiend useful. Loaded with the trustworthy reviews from your friends, this free tool should make the good applications easier to find and the bad ones easier to avoid."

        Here's how AppFiend works. Create a free account for yourself, add Apps you have tried to your App List and write an honest review. Invite your friends to join your network so you can see what Apps they like and figure out what Apps you would like to get, and vice-versa. Features include:

        * App List. Your personal list of the Apps you have tried. Rate them, and write a review for everyone in your network to see.

        * Gimme List. A list of the Apps that you have yet to try or that you want to learn more about later. One tap and the App can be added to your App List.

        * Friends List. A list of the Friends within your network. From here you can drill-down to a detailed list of each Friend's App List.

        * Find Friends. Look up Friends by Name or by Email Address and then tap to send them a Friend request. Once they approve your request, you are linked and can share App information.

        * Search Apps. Look up Apps by Name and add them to your App List or your Gimme List. One tap and you can read the App's complete description and one more tap and you are connected to iTunes to purchase and download.

        * Activity. See activity from within your Friend network as it happens.

        AppFiend for iPhone and iPod Touch works on all versions of the mobile device, including first generation iPhone and iPod Touch, with a valid Internet Connection. AppFiend is also available on the Web at the AppFiend website from any computer with a valid Internet connection.

        AppFiend is the best way to get iPhone App information, from the people you know and trust, your friends. And it only gets better as more users join your network. "I am still working on ways to improve the service", said Todd Barnes. "For the next release of AppFiend, I am looking into integrating it with Facebook. That should give users another way to mass-broadcast their App experiences to their entire group of friends, even if they don't have an iPhone ... yet."

        AppFiend for iPhone and iPod Touch is available free on the Apple App Store.
