BlackBerry Converter

I don’t know how many of you still have BlackBerry cellphones, but at one point BlackBerry was cutting edge and considered cool, and in my opinion they still are.  I do not own one so I’m not familiar with the system etc, but I found this application which is PowerPC friendly and I would like to share it with you here:

* DVD to BlackBerry Converter for Mac ($28.00) – http://joboshare.com/dvd-to-blackberry-converter-mac.html – PowerPC G5 / Leopard – 10.5.  It’s a professional Mac DVD to BlackBerry convert tool.

#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:

Citrix – ShareFile

When we stop to think about how the internet has changed in last ten years it’s almost unbelievable.  When the internet first started, most people didn’t know how to handle it and to get to the position that we are today is just awesome.  Most PowerPC users are old enough to remember how things were in the early 1990s and now twenty years later we see that the most common thing is to share information and sync devices on the cloud..,it’s just a common fact of computer life now!  A while ago, I was very impressed because Google released a new operating system entitled Google Chromium, which ran on the web, which I thought would change everything, especially the way we purchase computers.  The cloud services were also something which improved and brought everything to another level in a short time span.  Citrix ShareFile is thinking ahead and decide to hone in and focus on the business market.

Citrix ShareFile – It’s easy to use, Professional and Secure.  It’s the easiest way to share large business files with your choice of one person or a hundred.  Just click to send a file link on a navigation bar, enter an e-mail address and upload your file.  It uploads files up to 10GB in size. Desktop tools, mobile apps or just launch your browser to manage your account.

Citrix also offers Secure Virtual Data Room.

Spending All Your Money – Now Tracking All Your Money

Everybody knows that even small expenditures add up…  In my opinion, tracking your money and your expenses are fundamental to the health of your pocket.  PowerPC computers are a great tool to help you in tracking because they run some of the web’s best applications that have been specially designed to help you in your quest.  Check back to some of our previous posts here on Mac PowerPC and you will find quite few of them in our archive.  But today I wanted to share the following with you;

* Budget Workbook – 1.7.5 (Shareware) – PowerPC friendly – Panther / Tiger / Leopard – 10.3/10.4/10.5. http://www.snowmintcs.com/products/workbookmac/  It’s a simple expense tracker, easy to use with a very friendly interface that will easily help you to find where your money is going.

Jers Novel Writer – PowerPC

My Facebook friend Gregory will be very happy because I finally got some time to check  out the application that he mentioned on Mac PowerPC’s Facebook Page a long time ago, which I had bookmarked but never had enough time to get to.  Here you go!

* Jers Novel Writer 1.1.12 – (Demo $30.00) – http://jerssoftwarehut.com/jers-novel-writer/download-jers-novel-writer  – PowerPC friendly Panther / Tiger / Leopard – 10.3/10.4/10.5 – It’s a simple but not restricted writing application.  I’m very impressed with the quality of this word processor, as it has everything to keeping you writing and saving your ideas without messing things up.  It has a main window like any other word processor but the coolest feature is that it has a tab running along the side that allows you see all your other saved projects!  It also has a notes tab that allows you to post all your brainstormed ideas and subjects that keep you on track as you write.  In my opinion, this is great software that totally deserves to be installed on your machine.    Attention Writers:  Now it’s time to make your Mac buddy work a little bit harder.

QuarkXpress is a professional and very powerful page layout and graphic design software that lets anyone create and publish rich, compelling material for print, the web and other digital media using one easy tool.  Its proven QuarkXpress is the must have software for in house, agency and independent designers.   The newest version 9.5 is Intel only but looking back, I found some previous version that are PowerPC friendly.

Bento for Mac PowerPC

I believe most Mac users are very organized when it comes to their data, music, movies, office, set-up, etc, etc.  So to find an application that helps you to organize your database is very important.  For example, iTunes is great piece of work that puts all your music on track.  Anyways, this post is not about music, it’s about Bento for Mac.  This software is unbelievably easy to use as it organizes all of your important information in one place.  You can manage and sync your contacts, address book, iCal, iPhoto, To Do Items into your project as easy as drag and drop.  The latest version 4 is for Intel only, but after doing some research and installing old versions I found out that 3.0.6 is fully compatible with PowerPC 10.5.  Bento is not free, so before you guys purchase please contact FileMaker and make sure they are still providing the right license for your version.

Bento 3.0.6 (PowerPC – Leopard 10.5) – http://www.filemaker.com/products/bento/

Run LinuX Run!

Who ever thought to install a second Operational System on your machine?  It could have been for fun, for security reasons or even just to have an extra option, why not?  In fact there are tons of personal reasons why you might install your favorite distro, but questions like “Which distro should I install?”, “How do I know that I will like CRUX PPC instead of Debian, Fedora, Lubuntu, Xubuntu?”.  Which distro will best fit your needs?  It’s hard to tell.  We have saved some links and are happy to share some shortcuts with you.  Choose your favorite distro and let it run free!
