A Review of Daylite – Business Manager

I try not to do many application reviews on this site, I would rather post them on iLoveMacApps, however the creators of Daylite have since bought an advert on this site, as a thanks I am going to tell you how wonderful this app is. This isn’t some marketing hype, Daylite is a proper professional application. Its dubbed as an all-in-one productivity suite designed to manage a team of one, to 50 users. It is the sort of tool which you use to make sure every one knows what they are doing in relation to everyone else in your business. It has a lot of features.

Getting To Grips With Printing – Noob2Pro #25

Making sure you can print a document properly is a major concern. Nothing is worse than having a printer that doesn’t work. This post will hopefully enable you to set up your printer and allow you to use it. At the moment I don’t currently have a working printer, it broke, however this is the method I employed when I set up my printer the first time. If you have any problems please leave a comment.

Scribbles – Simple Fun Image Drawing App 0


Scribbles – Simple Fun Image Drawing App

To start off the posts again I am going to do a review of an app that I have grown to love. Its called Scribbles and it is designed as an intuitive drawing app that makes it fun an interesting to draw. It doesn’t have a trillion features that take years to learn, it takes the simple method of using your mouse to draw an image and make it even easier.

DaisyDisk – Visualizing Disk Space 3


DaisyDisk – Visualizing Disk Space

Its been a long time since I have done an application review. Todays app, DaisyDisk, is one I have been using a while. Its designed to visualise in a very funky way, the contents of your hard drive. In a nutshell it allows you see which files and folders are taking up the most space. The interface does look quite complicated at first, however with a bit of understanding you can quickly get to grips with it. Once as you have learnt what everything does it is a very powerful application.
