TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – We still have 10 more days left this month. I guess I have time enough to release a new software title. In fact, I submitted a new desktop application to Mac App Store several minutes ago. This new software submission is called Cut Extreme 2.
If you want to make a rectangular cutout of a picture, you can do so with Preview. What if you want to make a cutout with a complex shape (like a heart, a tree, a star…) other than a rectangle?
Cut Extreme 2 is an upgrade version of an existing desktop application titled CutAround Extreme, which was first introduced in June, 2015. These applications let you make a cutout out of a picture with a shape made by a bezier curve. This application is now free. Shape collections are available as in-app purchases.
After selecting a picture to work with, select a shape with a drop-down menu so that you can make a cutout as to how you make one out of a picture. Then use the combo box right below to set a size of a cutout. Finally, click on the cut button (looking like scissors) to make a cutout. All cutouts are saved in the list to the right.

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – I thought we were going to have a rainy day. I guess the Weather widget that comes with the System is not that reliable. And it has turned out to be a very beautiful November day, which is what we need before we enter a long, cold winter.

Super Patterns 2 is a desktop application that lets you create a pattern with shapes, images, rich text strings. It is an updated version of a desktop application called MiPatterns. Create a pattern, which can be saved as an image file to your disk. Continue reading

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – The time passes quite fast once the summer is over, don’t you think? We only have two months left this year. Anyway, I’m ready to introduce a pair of applications to you. One of them is called Robo Desk Central.
Robo Desk Central is a desktop application that lets you use your iOS device as a front office receptionist. It works with its iOS counterpart called Robo Desk, which is designed to answer visitors at your office. The iOS counterpart asks a visitor what their name is, who they are visiting at your office with a list of employees to choose from, whether or not they have an appointment. Once it gets all answers from a visitor, the iOS counterpart will make a call to this application, telling that you have a visitor. And Robo Desk Central records every visit. Continue reading
