BusyCal is on Setapp

As if there weren't enough reasons to subscribe to Setapp, the team have announced that the popular Calendar application, BusyCal is now available. 

BusyCal is a great application and fulfils a lot of needs for the Power Users among you. I love the way you can customise the views to suit your needs - the ability to change the number of days in a week to 10 is a real benefit! There are integrated to-dos, the ability to include Travel Time with your appointments and much, much more. 

Check out what BusyCal has to offer here.  The value offered by Setapp goes from strength to strength. 

Link - Working from an iPhone

There are people that scoff at the idea of being able to work from a device as small as an iPhone. I know this because, until recently, I was one of them.

Advances in Cloud storage technology and in-sync applications have made this more of a reality and this article by Ryan Christoffel at MacStories goes into lengthy detail about how he has been able to make it work.

Even if the idea of working from an iPhone doesn't appeal to you, I'm sure you'd love to find out how you can make using it more efficient. If so, then read this article and see what you think. You'll come away with something from it, I guarantee.

ScreenFlow by Telestream

ScreenFlow by Telestream is my screen recording application of choice. As far as I'm concerned, it is streets ahead of the competition. When people like Don McAllister at Screencasts Online are using it as the core piece of software for their business, you know it's good!

The main thing that impresses me about this software is the simplicity in use. Yes, there are a LOT of features contained within, however I never feel as though anything is further than a couple of clicks away. Trimming clips, inserting images and annotations, implementing callout actions to highlight parts of the screen, blurring content - it's all there. One thing I've recently learnt is how to speed up clips that involve a lot of typing, which viewers aren't interested in seeing. That tip was picked up on the main ScreenFlow forum hosted by Telestream.

Also, it would be remiss of me to omit the fact that Don has a host of videos on Screencasts Online covering how to use the many features available within ScreenFlow.

It's a great application and if you have any interest in screen recording on the Mac, this is a must-have purchase.
