EagleFiler Organize e-Mails, Web Pages, Files, etc…

The question before I write this post is Why we do not save our documents?  I just lost my entire post because of sheer laziness…  Lesson learned and now it’s time to move on!

We have been posting here for awhile now and my PowerPC friends know that I always try to find free or low cost applications to share for many reasons.  Sometimes I come across some non-free applications that I think my readers would be interested in, and post them anyways.  These products often have features that the free ones do not…

EagleFiler 1.5.10 (Demo) – PowerPC 10.4 – Tiger / 10.5 – Leopard.  It’s an easy way to archive and manage all your documents, and various other pieces of information including e-mails, web pages, etc.  Organize everything into folders and add tags and notes to make it easier to search for later!

LibreOffice + Dropbox are PowerPC Friend

I’m assuming that most of you are already aware of some updates available for PowerPC’s applications, but I decided to make a post just in case you missed it!  So this post is really just one for “checking” out information you may not have been aware of.  Let’s see how up to date you are!

1 – LibreOffice recently released LibreOffice4, but now its LibreOffice 4.0.2 is already available for download – http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?type=mac-ppc&lang=en-US (There is the next version available for test if you feel like checking it out, too! 4.0.3.

2 – Our good friend DropBox recently released an update and for our great surprise its actually compatible with PowerPC.  DropBox 2.0.8 – http://dropbox.com

These 2 softwares are fundamental for any PowerPC machine or better yet, for any computer because they’re so friendly, free and work across multiple platforms.

How many of you have installed LibreOffice + DropBox?  Please tweet:

#Twitter Clients for PowerPC pt 1+1

All Mac PowerPC users are well aware that when it comes to Social Networking our applications are limited.  It’s hard to find something that might work well for Mac OS X Tiger.  In fact it’s virtually possible to find options for  the Mac OS X Leopard.  I actually still prefer use a good old fashioned Browser, when it comes to searching for these types of media.  But this post doesn’t end here, previously we mentioned some applications for Twitter and we got really great feedback from our readers and I wanted to share some  more options with you here.  the list starts with:

* Echofon 1.5.7 – Twitter Client (I didn’t find a safe web-site to download from, but as far as I can ascertain, this version might work on PowerPC 10.5 / Leopard.  If you find or have a safe .dmg file please share with us. http://mac.brothersoft.com/echofon.html / Echofon download here: http://www.milocker.com/pg/file/read/79630/echofon-for-leopard-powerpc Thanks @rjCalifornia

Hard Times 

The blog MacPowerPC is currently off until further notice, I’m trying very hard to come back posting new info/apps/softwares compatible with PowerPC. This moment I really would appreciate a little bit donations, because my iBook G4 just died and I need to buy any Mac PowerPC to keep this project on, without a PowerPC machine I can’t do my research. If everyone understand my work here and would like to help me with $5 or $10 would be appreciate. Thank you very much for the support.
