Apptic Storm: This Week’s Interesting Apps


Here are the apps, hacks and  updates I found interesting over the past week.

Comodo Time Machine.  A simple but powerful system rollback utility that lets users quickly restore their computer to an earlier point of time.  Supposedly more robust than Windows System Restore. 

Add MP3 support to AudacityAudacity is great.  Audacity without MP3 support is useless.

SnipSnip.  Easily share a snippet from a YouTube video.  This will be very useful, if it works.  I tried it, and it started at the selected place, but it didn’t stop at the selected place.

VidCoder.  This Handbrake powered encoder now has a 64-bit version.

Hamster.  While we’re on the topic of video, I’ve started using this free video converter.

Heytell.  I can’t overstate how much I enjoy this app that basically turns your iPhone or Android device into a walkie talkie.  This may become one of my most used app, if I can get my family to give it a chance.  Unlike Flickr, which they still don’t use.  Maybe they were right.

DnD Renamer.  I’m always trying to find easier ways to batch rename files.  Particularly photos.

TuneSwift.  I know from first hand experience that moving iTunes from one computer to the other can be perilous.  I haven’t tried this app, but if it works, it rocks.

That’s it for now.  If you’re a developer with a neat app, hack or update we should feature, let us know.  We’d love to check it out.
