iExplorer 3 Review: get more from your iDevice

The iDevices are great products, the iOS interface is fast and clean but it has some little things that are not so great. For example, you can’t connect an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and use it as a USB Drive, you can’t do anything more than charge it if it’s not from iTunes and sometimes is better just to be going and adding files and music from different computers without the syncing/deleting process.

This can be really annoying sometimes and there’s no reason of why your iDevice can’t do that. This is where iExplorer from Macroplant gets in. Is an amazing little App that can help you a lot, is simple, is nice, great looking and it gives you full access to your iDevice, let’s check the best features of this program.

Windows Magician Review: Mac just got easier for pro users

When you are using Logic Pro, Photoshop or any other big program with tons of windows to manage it can be a mess. As a user for Logic Pro studio I know what I’m saying. Loops window, mixer window, instruments window and many more at the same time. You can use Spaces to get everything in order, but there’s another way now.

It’s called windows magician, an application for Mac that let’s you choose the size and location of every window for every time you open it. For example, in Logic Pro I like to have my loops on the left side, with a medium size and in the bottom the mixer. Before windows magician I had to establish those windows every time I open it but that’s old story now.

FX Studio Pro Review: Simple Is Better

We have reviewed quite a few photography apps for Mac and iOS, and true is that Apple’s platform have a certain attraction with photos, videos and everything related with creativity and memories. There are some great apps that can turn a photo into vivid memory for a family, some of them are hard to use, complicated, dedicated to professionals, others are simple and have a small selection of options so the regular user can have a nice photo too.

FX Studio Pro from Macphun is the second kind of app: is simple, everybody can use it and it has a limited range of options. It is the Instagram for the Mac, has a lot of filters and frames and with a few clicks you can have a great photo. But there’s something that puts FX Studio Pro over a big part of his competitors: It’s not designed for children, it doesn’t look like a core photography photo app; with a few clicks you can have your great photo, the way you want, not the way the filters want.
