Just a reminder as we start the new year that we have an active Twitter account, a hoppin' Facebook page, our very own Tumblr (where the weird stuff goes), and Google+ and App.net pages. You can sign up for our daily app newsletter using the box to the right (cleverly labeled "Subscribe to Newslet...

This is a compendium of the best of the best, the apps and physical products that we felt best represented the top of a specific category. Some of the products are brand-new, others are old favo...

Bless Keyboard Maestro. It's not as if we haven't already given it coverage here at TUAW, but I fought to make it today's Friday Favorite because it pulled my grits out of the fire after I upgraded to Mavericks. Me? I've been a Quickeys user since the freaking 1980's. One gets used to an app. Use...

I'm a huge fan of Ecamm's Printopia utility. For just 20 bucks, it enables you to print from iOS to any printer connected to your Mac. You don't need to buy a high-priced AirPlay-enabled system. I'm running Printopia with an old piece-of-junk Brother laser printer that is older than some of my kid...

It may not be "World Backup Day" by the letter of the law, but it might as well be in spirit. iOS 7 is due to drop tomorrow, and we at TUAW would gently like to remind you to perform a backup before the new firmware is released. You'll want a clean, recent copy of all your files (especially all t...

I've been a huge fan of Rogue Amoeba products for years. They offer clever audio solutions for OS X. Rogue Amoeba's new Intermission (US$15) utility fills a role on my Mac that I never even knew I needed. Intermission enables you to pause, rewind and skip through live audio streams. This lets you t...

Not every Dollar Store accessory is going to be a great success and, sadly, this case with a built-in stand was an utter piece of crap. I selected it for review because I rather liked the notion of a flip stand, especially for watching YouTube videos and the like. The case clicked onto my 4S easi...

Now here's a way to make your MacBook look almost like it's floating in mid-air: the design wizards at Twelve South have announced GhostStand (US$34.99), a transparent Lucite platform that elevates a MacBook about six inches off of the desktop for easy viewing. The two blades that make up the Gho...

Yakit for iPhone (free) is possibly the silliest, stupidest fun you can have with an iPhone and a photograph right now. A bunch of us here at TUAW love this ridiculous app. You snap a photo or pick one from your camera roll. You then interactively animate one or more mouths in the picture. The int...

Continuing with our series exploring dollar store accessories, I recently picked up a pair of sleeves compatible with original and bite sized mini iPads. Widely available at most dollar stores, low-cost sleeves provide utilitarian tablet protection. The ones I bought and tested consisted of a spon...
