Adobe Flash 11.5 for PowerPC

I found this on Mac OS X Tiger PPC’s Facebook’s page and it seems to be working very well, at least the comments are very positive… It’s basically Adobe Flash 11.5 for PowerPC! I know this steps away from our norm, but the policy of Mac PowerPC is to share all options for PowerPC, with a focus on the free and readily available!

P.S.: This is infact a hacked plugin! We decided to share it with you because the idea of Mac PowerPC is to share all the information/apps/news about Mac OS X PowerPC. This is not 100% secure, if you do try it – do so at your own risk.

Sparrow e-Mail Client for PowerPC

If you guys follow MacPowerPC’s Facebook Page you probably are already aware that we are on vacation at the moment.  This means that I had to leave my good buddy (my iMac G5) at home because I can’t take such a large machine overseas….  Can you picture someone at the airport taking an iMac G4 out of their carry on?   LOL!  Anyways, even while we’re away, I’m still trying to update our blog and found (on twitter) that someone installed Sparrow on a Mac PowerPC running 10.5/Leopard.  I took a closer look and found that version 1.5 might work for us!  I’m very glad to share this information with our readers and if you guys want to do the test and share the results with us, your comments will be most appreciated.

Sparrow 1.5 $9.99 – PowerPC 10.5 (Leopard) – 

This is a very powerful e-mail client and very minimalist as far as I can see.  It’s easy to organize more than one e-mail account and has great support. Imap or Pop, it’s up to you.  Also compatible with e-mail accounts like Yahoo + Hotmail that is very hard to sync these accounts.  I think is a double plus.

Recently I took a look at the app’s website and there is a notice that Google bought this amazing app, so let’s hope they keep up the work or even make it better, but I’m not sure they will release something for PowerPC…  anyways here is the link:

You guys know the drill very well, but make sure before you purchase any PowerPC app, contact the developers and make sure they will provide the right license for PowerPC architecture.  :)

P.S.: Our reader Xenosage once mentioned that he had some issues to install an old version of Sparrow but just now I had a chance to find some sites that support the old version.

Folder Cleaner 1.1 – (Free) PowerPC 10.4/10.5 (Tiger/Leopard).

I’m not quite sure if I need this application yet, but Folder Cleaner is a very simple and handy application.  Folder Cleaner deletes .DS_Stores files, resources forks and .Trash folders from a folder or an external hard drive.  It could be very helpful if you use pen-drives very often and don’t want to waste your time waiting for Secure Empty Trash.

Let’s talk about nostalgia… I was checking few blogs and web sites and I found a great article on LowEndMac talking about the old Mac OS System. I thought that it would be great to Know a bit about OS 6 or OS 7, just to play around and do some tests.

For the entire article of LowEndMac:
