Today is your chance to update Write on the Mac App Store. Write 2 is part of the TwoDollarTuesday. More discounted Apps can be found here.
Simple. Fast. Powerful. iCloud* enabled. Retina-aware.
Write 2 is a cute lightweight word processor for our daily writing tasks. It is fast, clean, intuitive to use and has a native (Mac-like) and uncluttered interface. Most important of all – it is very user-friendly. It’s the word processor for the rest of us. For those who just simply want to write and for all those missing WriteNow :–)

Four months later CocoaBox finally just hit the Mac App Store. Main problem was (and is) the iCloud integration and the App sandboxing. So – directly pasting snippets into Xcode is unfortunately not possible (for now). However, you can directly drag them into Xcode (or any other Editor – like SimpleEdit.
Life is like a box of code.
It is up to you what you do with it.
This is true for CocoaBox as well:
Store unlimited Cocoa/Objective-C snippets. Thanks to iCloud, use them on all your Macs.
Directly insert snippets into Xcode. Even drag multiple snippets out of CocoaBox. Directly create new snippets with a global hotkey. Or easily create snippets from files.
Add unlimited files. Quick Look them. Thanks to iCloud, use them on all your Macs. Directly drag them into Xcode. Or into CocoaBox. Open them with one click. Or a single keystroke.
Operate CocoaBox completely by keyboard. Tag everything. Filter its content with those tags. Or multiple tags. Of course, everything else is searchable too. And printable. And exportable as well.

Call 2 for your Dropbox.
Call 3 for your Pictures.
And for your recently used files you don’t need to call at all.
They are right there.
At your fingertips.
Dammit is now optimized for the awesome new Retina display.
Dammit can now show you recently used documents as well.
Dammit. Where is that important folder?
Dammit. Do I have all files for my latest application?
Dammit. Why did I just closed that Finder window, again?
Dammit. Where is that document I just used a minute ago?
Even the best computers in the world with the most advanced system have one problem.
Us humans dealing with our daily obstacles in front of them.
Dammit will of course not solve every problem – but it will surely make your life much easier.
Think of Dammit as the speed dial buttons to your most often used and most important files, folders and recently used documents.
Just create a stack. Add up to nine files or folders per stack and simply open them with the keys 1-9. Or just click onto them. Of course you can create unlimited stacks and you can add whatever you want.
Folders, images, Apps, bookmarks and even drives and servers.
Swipe between Stacks and replace items in a blink by drag-and-drop. If needed – you can lock items or even flag them.
Dammit runs in the background, can be activated by an own custom Global Hotkey and if you like you can disable the Dock icon. Dammit has a very small footprint, is optimized for speed and can be completely operated by keyboard.
So – why not replace the daily:
Dammit. Where is that folder again?
Dammit, what a great little helper!

Cute Recipes App is available for only two bucks today as part of the TwoDollarTuesday Mac App Store Deals.
Recipes is the most beautiful way to create, manage and share your recipes. It’s iCloud enabled, so all your recipes can be accessed on all your Macs, all the time. And it has a beautiful, full-screen cooking view, which you can operate entirely by gestures.
One of the great things about Recipes is it’s powerful search, so you will never lose a recipe. You can search all recipes and for any type of content. You can search by anything: an ingredient, the kind of recipe, your notes, etc.
With just one click you can also:
• Print a recipe
• Print a whole recipe group
• Print the complete library of all your recipes
• Share your recipes by email, Twitter or Facebook
• Publish your recipes, so that everyone can see, use, download and share them
• Import recipes from other Apps like MacGourmet, YummySoup or Paprika
Sharing and printing is nice – but in the end it is all about cooking. That’s why recipes has a built in fullscreen cook view that can be operated completely by gestures.

I’ve just submitted the latest AppLauncher version for review and because I am currently freeing all my Apps from Apples imprisonment – you can now also directly download AppLauncher – it is not sandboxed but code signed.
This updates improves the support for multiple display setups, the Google suggestions and its guessing algorithm…
After weeks Apple has finally approved the latest Free update. This updates adds support for the awesome new Retina Display and comes with a German localization and I’ve prepared other localizations for future updates.
I’ve also worked on the iCloud integration that will hill to get the iPad version done.
The website, its manual and the tips and tricks page are now also optimized for retina displays …

Free on the Mac App Store
Yes, I know – it is an inaccurate headline. But I hope one gets the point. I guess it is becoming my favorite new sport: freeing my own Apps. In this case:
With Free I have freed my second App. Besides Write – Free is now also available ‘without’ the Mac App Store and other Apps of mine will follow. I simply had enough of Apple’s Review-Bullshit and this way I can offer a demo version, a cross grade for existing myTexts users and updates will be available the moment I’ve finished them and not in weeks, months or never.

Everyone wins – except Apple. I guess this is not such a bad thing for a change…

I am sick and tired of Apples review crap. So tired.
Just to be clear – I don’t have a problem with the review of Apps itself. I have a major problem with the way Apple handles it.
It is a joke. Even after years they pull the same crap all over again and again and again.
Yes, I know they are understaffed – but c’mon. From my fees alone they could hire an additional guy (or girl). Let alone the fees they collect from Rovio.
And it can happen sometimes – but not as a rule! If I would screw my customers that way – I would be out of business in less than a month.
The last Recipes update got stuck for over a month without a single note/comment/word. And there wasn’t a major problem with it. Just a wrong entitlement and that was fixed in two minutes.
Write 2 is now stuck for months again. And I bet it had something to do with Pages and they don’t wanted another third party App to be the first in Retina-aware.
Then they had a problem with me using the word Retina in the description. Hey Apple, you don’t own the word Retina. But hey, I removed it. And it still is stuck for weeks now. Again.
Little independent developers don’t have to pay bills and rent. We are just happy to deliver quality content for you :–(
And the Retina-aware update of Free is stuck again. For weeks now. And before that it was rejected because its App Store Title is not Free alone.
And that is for a reason. And it was not a problem for all my other Apps and probably every third/second App on the App Store before – simply because your search is
a joke crap (or sucks, if you prefer that).
But hey – I removed it – so that my customers – who gave you thousands of bucks for a Retina MacBook Pro – can use it. But guess what. It is stuck again. For weeks. Without a word/note/comment.
Screw you, Apple!
I am already preparing all my important Apps for a world without your stupid App Store and Review Hell now (again!). We all sold our Apps before you ‘invented’ the App Store and some of us had a better living.
I can sell my Apps in my own store (again).
will be available tomorrow is available here and all existing myWritings owner can update for a reduced price and Free will be available next week. And others will follow.
Both in Retina-aware and built-in Dropbox support instead of your half-baked beta-iCloud-thingi…
In case you’ve missed it. Apple has approved the latest AppLauncher update. It is now Retina-aware, faster and now also support your Safari bookmarks and Google Suggestions. I’ve also worked on the prediction logic – means, not only often used items will sorted first but AppLauncher now also tries to ‘anticipate’ what you want …
