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.
