Mac app PhoneExpander frees up storage on your iPhone or iPad

Mac app PhoneExpander frees up storage on your iPhone or iPad

At launch, the 16GB option for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus seemed entirely too limited. If you were one of the anxious bunch who snapped up a new iPhone with the smaller memory option, or have an older one with a similarly svelte internal storage, we’ve got good news for you. A new app for your Mac can help clear up some space, and even tell you which apps might be soaking up more memory than you’d like. Even better, the app is free.

Star Wars Humble Bundle summons the Dark Forces

Star Wars Humble Bundle summons the Dark Forces

Today Humble Bundle brings heat with a number of Star Wars-themed games for PC, Linux, and Mac. The team behind Humble Bundle have successfully high-fived the folks who own the rights to these games - previously called LucasArts - and are pushing cash to charity. Users are asked to pay $1 or more - hopefully a lot more - to gain access to a number of rad games from Star Wars history. And what's that - at least one super classic title - Dark Forces, the original 3rd-party Dash Rendar-like character first person shooter back from the dead.

Any.Do brings their simplified to-do list app to Mac

Any.Do brings their simplified to-do list app to Mac

Continuing on their quest to keep you organized everywhere you go, Any.Do has released an app for OS X. The app is their first for the desktop operating system from Apple, and closely mimics their mobile apps available on iOS and Android. With the app, you can create task lists for whatever you need to get done, and even share those tasks with colleagues, friends, or family. Attaching notes will find favor with desktop fans, but the story might be what the app lacks more than what it brings to your desktop.

Logic Pro X adds new sounds, better drummers, more

Logic Pro X adds new sounds, better drummers, more

Logic Pro X has had a quiet update, with new backing percussion options and tools, tweaks to how the music app handles edits, and - maybe most important of all - smarter balancing of automation versus musicality. The new release to 10.1, a free update through the Mac App Store for existing Logic Pro X users, adds ten new Drummers in a variety of styles including techno, house, trap, and dubstep, along with special tools for tweaking drum tracks in electronic and hip hop music. Meanwhile, there's also AirDrop sharing and Retina support for those lucky enough to be composing on an iMac 5K.

Strafe: a game reveling in retro-graphics FPS glory

Strafe: a game reveling in retro-graphics FPS glory

Back in November of 2014, we first saw the face-blasting pixel-blood glory that was the first "sneak peek" at the game Strafe. Here in January of 2015, the Kickstarter has begun, and the glorious mix of old-school graphics and new-world humor has been revealed. Even if you have no interest in investing in a game before it's released, even if you're not planning on playing any gore-filled first person shooters any time soon, you absolutely must watch the "banned commercial" this group has created to push their product.

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

A designer by the name of Michelle Vandy has begun using her nose to do her job on her computer. Instead of using her arms, wrists, and fingers to tap into graphic design, she's rigged up a tripod, a stand, and an Apple Magic Trackpad to construct what may be the world's first "Nose-pad." Without the use of this Nose-pad, Vandy might otherwise have had to give up on design altogether, entering a different working field where she'd not have been able to use her talents to such a fine degree.

Google Drive update for Mac, PC brings new look, features

Google Drive might be the best cloud storage solution there is. It’s available anywhere, securely tucks your files away, and is free to use. For mobile, it’s amazing. For the desktop, Drive is fairly utilitarian, but that’s about to change. Today, Google is announcing a few changes to Drive for PC and Mac, which will give users more control and a new menu. The new-look drop-down menu provides updates on uploads, and even gives you access to recently synced items.

Apple delivers first ever automatic software update to Macs

Apple delivers first ever automatic software update to Macs

There are bug fixes and there are bug fixes. And then there are bug fixes so severe that they need to be plugged up immediately. But no matter how fast software providers try to patch up things on their end, bad users habits sometimes mean that these patches don't get downloaded or applied immediately, if at all. That is why Apple is making use of a feature it already had launched two years ago to deliver a critical bug fix to Mac users without them having to lift a finger.

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

The MacBook Air hasn't changed in a massive way for the past several years. It hasn't really needed to. Apple's PC sales have done exceedingly well in the recent past - since the MacBook Air was launched, really. Now it might be time for a new design in the form of tiny feature changes. The first - and perhaps largest - of these is a click-less TrackPad. This wouldn't be a big deal in a PC - the "tap to click" feature has been in play for several generations - but for Apple computers, it's relatively new.
