If you'd like more information about Things, there's always the developer's website , or you could watch the Things screencast (brought to you by your's truly) and see my comparison of how Things stacks up with the other GTD options. Cultured Code has said that they're shooting to release the public...

There's also Quay, which is less free (that is, completely paid software), but has generated a lot of buzz. Haven't tried it myself.

I know that it doesn't have Amazon S3 support (about the only feature Transmit has up on it), but I highly recommend YummyFTP if you're looking for FTP software. YummyFTP is possibly the best kept secret on the Mac. Transmit's alright, but when I discovered Yummy I jumped ship without a backwards gl...

There are ways to run the GIMP natively, i.e. without the help of X11, actually. It is not for the faint of heart though and unfortunately, one of the best blogs with the most up-to-date information has just shut down for good :( That's a serious shame; figures I'd learn there were ways to get GIMP...

I'm surprised people are so negative about Acorn. I loved its all-in-one interface; although CS3 is a step in the right direction, Photoshop's interface is still the thing I least like about it. Acorn definitely has its limitations, but I think it's probably the most friendly (and creatively designe...

EagleFiler? Thought I mentioned it on page one. Typical... nobody reads my stuff. :( :wink: Sorry about that! It was obscured by DevonThink. :) Edit: also, for anyone interested in tag-based solutions, I just recently published an article looking at tag-based file libraries (of course, if you want ...

I can't believe that it took until page 3 to mention EagleFiler. It gets my wholehearted vote; it's a wonderful app. My top three main contenders are EagleFiler, the recently updated Together (formerly KIT, and it's loads more appealing now), and Yojimbo. DevonThink looks alright, but it's too expen...

What you should know about me: I'm a rabid Avenir fan-boy. That said, you should definitely check out StoryMill when the beta comes out. Odds are if Scrivener really captures the way you write you won't want to switch, but I've been pretty heavily involved in the brainstorming/feature requesting/for...

I don't know how useful it would be, but you might also want to take a peek at Hazel.

Also, while trying to figure out where the heck Finder plugins are stored, I stumbled across this link, which looks like it might be just the thing:

You know, I distinctly remember trying WebnoteHappy, disliking it, and uninstalling it, but I've gone back to look at it again and I can't for the life of me remember why. Maybe it was because it doesn't support Ma.gnolia. Looking at it again, though, it does seem to have most of the things I'm want...

Decent bookmarks manager?

I desperately need a decent bookmarks manager, but I haven't had any luck finding one (tried Bookdog, WebnoteHappy, and SiteTagger but wasn't particularly enchanted by any of them). Here's what I'm looking for: ⋅ Organization through tags and smart folders ⋅ Integration with del....

Did I see "Hero Adventure" in one of Storyist's screenshots?!? You did. It's straight out of Joseph Campbell. Do you suppose George Lucas used Storyist? :D I'm not sure why people are comparing this to Avenir, though. I guess it's more structured than Scrivener as far as laying out the di...

Re: invoicing

There's a fortune waiting for the person who can make invoice templating simple though I agree. I think what we need is someone who really understands interface design to build a time tracking/invoicing app. A lot of the options out there are just far too cluttered to be useful, even when their fea...

I highly recommend OfficeTime: http://www.officetime.net/ I was skeptical about it at first (the screenshots were not very attractive, and I think it's a Basic app), but it was far and away the best time tracking and invoice software I was able to find. Head and shoulders above all of the others tha...
