TOKYO (MacHouse) – Last year, we exclusively developed Windows application. For now, we are done with Windows because Microsoft appears to destroy the desktop application community. So we started developing iOS applications last November. We did so just till the very end of the last month. Then we’ve suddenly switched back to Mac OS X. So far, we’ve released two Mac applications. Before this month ends, we happen to have one more Mac application to introduce. This new Mac software title is called JustTomato. JustTomato? You mean, grow virtual tomatoes on your Mac? Nope.
JustTomato is a little Mac application that allows the user to convert a group of image files (PNG, TIFF) into Mac OS X icon files (ICNS). JustTomato also lets you convert square-ratio images (PNG, TIFF) into iOS icon files (Icon72.PNG, Icon.144.PNG) at the same time. Continue reading
TOKYO (MacHouse) – It was just a couple of days ago when we last introduced the first Mac application in about 1 and a half years. And we are ready to introduce another Mac application. This new software release is called DotsSweep.
DotsSweep is a small desktop application that lets you delete invisible files in a folder of your selection. Actually, you can clean up multiple folders all at a time.
If there are invisible files in a folder, what’s the big deal? The question depends on how you use that folder. For example, if you use Xcode to develop iOS or Mac applications, that can cause a serious problem because referencing files directly to an existing folder can prevent you from sending a binary to iTunes Connect with Organizer. Also, if you have a folder that contains image files, importing it to other operating systems like Windows can make invisible files visible and make a mess. Continue reading
TOKYO (MacHouse) – Every time we introduce a new software title we have to switch to Windows so that we can use the Windows version of Img4Web, which allows us to create thumbnail images, generating HTML code at the same time. We did have a Mac version of Img4Web except that it’s buggy and can crash for an unknown reason. Well, we are tired of switching to Windows just to use Img4Web. So…
Just submitted to Mac App Store is a new Mac version of Img4Web. It’s a Cocoa-built and is developed with Objective-C from a scratch. And this build is quite stable. Seriously, you are back to the Mac platform? Yes, it sounds like we are joking. Seriously, we are back after some 18 months.
Img4Web lets you batch-create thumbnail images out of source files you specify. The purpose of using Img4Web is not just to create thumbnail images. Img4Web will automatically generate web code for displaying thumbnail and source images in a HTML table. The application is designed for those like us who want to spend as little time as possible in writing HTML code. Simply, use a drop box to read one or more source files. Then set an export format, thumbnail name, resize dimensions. Also, configure HTML settings so that Img4Web can generate HTML code. And? Just click on the Export button. Continue reading
TOKYO (MacHouse) – A few minutes ago, we released FontsView Portable. We are releasing a pair again. And the freeware title we introduce at the same time is FontsView Portable Lite.
FontsView Portable Lite is designed such that users can compare different styles of text with a color and a size of your selection. When you have several dozen fonts, it won’t be easy to pick the best choice for a particular text string. So the idea is that you enter a string of text and then select this font and that font so that you can make the best choice visually. Continue reading
TOKYO (MacHouse) – We thought we were going to end the month of April with Presenta and Presenta Lite. I guess we were wrong. We just released another pair of iPad applications some 10 minutes. The first iOS application to introduce today is FontsView Portable.
We initially developed FontsView for Mac OS X. It’s also available for Windows. Now, it’s available for iPad.
FontsView Portable (hereafter, FontsView) is designed such that users can compare different styles of text with a color and a size of your selection. When you have several dozen fonts, it won’t be easy to pick the best choice for a particular text string. So the idea is that you enter a string of text and then select this font and that font so that you can make the best choice visually. Furthermore, using Compare, you can compare different styles of text side by side in a list. Continue reading
