TOKYO (MacHouse) – We thought Img4Web was the last release of the month. Hell, we were wrong. The last software release of September (2011) is DeskControl.
DeskControl is similar to Ready2Work. to some extent. It allows the user to change basic system settings quickly. As a software developer, I’m forced to test applications under the Guest account. If you switch to the Guest account, you know that you have to set up your system from a scratch. Opening Finder‘s Preferences to display main volume, external drives, CDs/DVDs, add this folder and that folder to the sidebar, dah, dah, dah… And DeskControl makes switching accounts less stressful.
The beauty of this software title is that you can save your system settings in an application file (.dcl). If you just double-clicking on a saved file, you can load your system settings. Then just click on Run. If you switch accounts, you can still use the same saved file to load system settings.
Just as before, DeskControl is distributed as a freeware title. Why!? I’m too tired to submit it to Mac App Store. Besides, we don’t quite get along with them well, anyway. Though it’s a beta version, it’s fully functional and will expire in December 31st. It hasn’t even a day since I started developing DeskControl. So who knows whether or not it has some software bugs?

TOKYO (MacHouse) – Apple, Inc. is evil, and we are nearly done with the Mac platform. (And, yes, Mac OS X Lion sucks a big time for software developers.) It will take us another several months to release a Windows software title, though. Till then, enjoy our next Mac software release. This new software title is called Img4Web.
Img4Web is a batch image processor that allows the user to generate thumbnail images out of source pictures. It’s not an ordinary image processor because it will also generate an HTML code to encapsulate source and thumbnail images in a table. A table right below is an example.
Img4Web is currently available as a beta release, which anyone can be allowed to use without paying a penny. It will expire at the end of the year. Since it’s a beta release, there’s no User’s Guide.
Furthermore, note that this application will not run under Mac OS X Lion. Version 1.1.0b is compatible with Mac OS X Lion. (10/15/11)

TOKYO (MacHouse) – We are in a big transition as we intend to switch to Windows OS. That explains why we haven’t released many Mac software titles lately. Anyway, we’ve just introduced a new one. It’s called LittleClean
LittleClean will let users batch-change file names in a particular folder. All you have to do is create a new list of file names by removing letters or replace them with others after opening a source folder. What you see in the middle pane is what you will get when you click on Execute.
It sounds similar to NameRanger? Hmm… Yes and no… NameRanger lets you append numbers in a particular folder while LittleClean allows the user to remove a letter or replace a letter with another.
