Allume Systems Announces Ten For XCollection of utilities gives you fourteen more reasons to love your Mac (February 07, 2005)
Allume Systems, Inc., an IMSI company, today released Ten for X Utilities volume 3, with fourteen best of class utilities to help Mac users get the most out of their Macintosh.
"Our latest Ten for X: Utilities volume, includes tools to help with everything from opening and saving files, typing special characters, printing the information from a web page, customizing the Dock and Finder and Instant Messaging. There's even a tool that will let you run your favorite screensaver as your Desktop background," said David Polzine, product manager at Allume. "The only thing Macintosh users enjoy more than their Mac is customizing it and finding new ways to get more out of it. This collection is for Mac lovers."
Ten for X: Utilities volume 3 collection includes fully registered versions of:
* CopyPaste Lite-A lite version of the award winning clipboard management tool that turbo charges nearly any writing or editing job.
* Default Folder X-This 5 Star utility makes opening or saving files faster and easier whether a Mac is obsessively organized or terminally cluttered.
* DockFun!-How about a doc for the Internet and one for Graphics? Or one for work and one for play? DockFun! Provides this and more, like hot key access to dock items and the ability to open/launch a group of items with a single click.
* Fire-Instant Message friends on iChat, family on Yahoo!, coworker's on MSN, all from one application. Fire a single Instant Messaging client to handle all these plus, AIM, ICQ, irc, Jabber!
* KeyCue-Menu or Keyboard shortcuts are a great time saver, but with the average Mac OS X application having 40 or more, how can anyone remember them? KeyCue pop's up a cheat sheet of all currently available shortcuts each time it's activated! It's a short cut for shortcuts!
* MenuMeters-Wonder how fast an Internet upload or download is? Whether the Mac would benefit from more RAM? What's slowing it down? MenuMeters gives meters for Network, CPU, Memory, and Drive performance right in the menu bar and can be configured to give just the information needed.
* Nudge-Where'd that just downloaded file go? How about the one just pasted into this folder? Now "Nudge" the Finder into updating now instead of when it "gets to it."
* PopCharX-If only you had four hands and a better memory, typing those foreign characters, or special symbols like ©, ®, etc would be much faster. Pop Char X makes it simple, simply tap the Pop Char X button and select from any of foreign or special character in any font without holding down 3 or more keys to do it!
* RCDefaultApp-Five Mice can't be wrong about this gem that allows users to set which application handles which type of URLs, which application handles different file types and filename extensions, and does it all in a single PreferencePane.
* Safari Magic-Gather, edit and print just the information (text & graphics) users want from one or more web pages with Safari Magic. Save time, ink, and paper while getting just the portions needed.
* TinkerTool-Access a variety of Finder, Dock, Safari, Addressbook, etc preferences from a single place or enable hidden options and modes as well with TinkerTool which has access to over 30 different system enhancing settings.
* xBack-Run a favorite screensaver as a Desktop background. From psychedelic effects, to virtual aquariums, or just a slide show from iPhoto. Make any Desktop come to life!
* XRay-"GetInfo" on steroids, now control files with XRay by seeing each file's properties and editing each and every one of them from creation date to invisibility, permissions to sticky bits.
* Zingg!-See all options of opening a file, or just those desired. Avoid launching Classic when you don't have to, or quickly open a shell script, or webloc for editing instead of launching with Zingg!
