Neo for Leopard for Mac PowerPC

Neo for Leopard 1.0.33 (PowerPC friendly)

NeO is a powerful outliner built for MacOS X. Using NeO, you can efficiently manage and organize pieces of information. NeO supports basic outliner facilities, such as creating, moving, sorting, grouping, combining and gathering items. And the useful facilities help you manage and organize information.

 

For some reason I’m getting an issue when I launch this app, I sent report and I hope they will fix it soon, until there let’s wait.  The installation went well and seems to be promising app.

MacNote3 for Mac PowerPC

If you’ve been searching for a great notepad for a long time and have yet to find the right fit for your needs, I think your search is about to end right here.  MacNote3 is a very complete product that goes beyond the capabilities of a simple notepad.  It’s fast to use and has a very clean interface.  One very interesting point is MacNote3 is similar to Notepad or Scrapbook (applications familiar to users of Mac OS9).  This is such a powerful app, and I highly recommend it to all of you!

But now let’s check out the features, please pay special attention to feature #7 because it’s essentially what is missing from Notes and iCloud.

MacNote3 – 3.0.1 (Trial – $15.00) 10.4 Tiger / 10.5 Leopard / PowerPC – http://nsek.net/SYW/software/english/macnote3/index.html

If you check “Downloads” you can see a list of other interesting apps that they  have developed.

Features

1. Simplicity

The most important feature of MacNote3 is its simplicity. It can be used in a fairly intuitive way, and there is no need to pay any attention to its file structure, or worry about saving data. New data is saved automatically and in a manner compatible with unhindered use. I hope that, for purchasers, MacNote3 will always be the stationery of first recourse.

2. Link

The user is able in any MacNote3 page, to install links to URLs, Files, other pages of MacNote3 and messages in Mail.app. Thus, pages can serve as an application launcher or a bookmark. In OSX 10.4 or higher, it is possible also to make a link to a message in Mail.app, so it’s easy to organize a To-Do page.

3. Multi-Window and Tab

MacNote3 allows the opening of multiple windows. In addition, multiple pages can be opened, via a tab, in one window.

4. Incremental Search

MacNote3 provides a swift incremental search. The user can quickly locate a needed page, even though it may be hidden among many others. MacNote3 also provides a list of “Frequently-used pages” and “Recently-used pages”, so the user is free to store as many pages as required.

5. AppleScript

MacNote3 is AppleScript compatible. Text data from MacNote3 can be transferred to another application via AppleScript. For example: templates for creating mail messages may be stored in MacNote3, and by employing AppleScript, new email messages can be created from these templates. Or, by means of AppleScript, lyrics from iTunes can be imported into a newly-created page. AppleScript can edit text of MacNote3 too, so it’s easy to insert HTML tags and so on. Of course you can write a new script and expand the ability of MacNote3 by yourself.

6. Iconize

If the user so desires, MacNote3 windows can be made to appear as tiny icons, and thus can be displayed separately on the desktop. In this mode a MacNote3 window is unobtrusive, yet allows the convenient entering of new data.

7. Export to iPod

It’s easy to export page data to an iPod, and therefore memos can be read on an iPod. MacNote3 can export its page data to any kind of iPod – from the oldest models to the most recent touch iPod or iPhone (with the exception of shuffle). Now MacNote for iPhone and iPod touch “mmNote” is available (freeware). MacNote3 can synchronize its data with mmNote via Wifi, so the users can refer to and edit MacNote3 memo and its images on iPhone and iPod touch too. (Screenshot 1, 2, 3, 4, “mmNote” manual)

8. Compatible with other standard services of Mac OSX

MacNote3 is compatible with other services that apply in Mac OSX. A new page can be created via the “Service” menu of another application; a page in MacNote3 can be opened via Spotlight; a page previewed via QuickLook, and so on.

Multiples Dock (Dockyard) for Mac PowerPC

Let’s start with the bad news:  “this application is no longer developed or supported” referring to both PowerPC and Intel.  PowerPC users from all over are so used to it that they it doesn’t phase them anymore.  There’s an application called Dockyard which is a dock switcher that will allow you to have multiples dock and you can access all with just one click.  You can also have multiple dashboards with the docks but you can choose not to, if you don’t want them.

Having multiple docks is an excellent option for organizing our apps as you can customize 2 or 3 different docks with themes for work, personal use etc.  For sure you will find dozens of themes which will make your life easier, thanks to this great Mac OS X feature.  Ah! you can now create an empty dock so you can work with only open applications.  The best part is coming: it’s compatible with 10.3 10.4 or later.  Way to go Tiger and Panther!

Dockyard 1.0.1 (Free) PowerPC 10.3 / 10.4 / 10.5 – Panther / Tiger / Leopard – http://belkadan.com/dockyard/

I think the only downside is that it would be nice if we could work with 2 docks simultaneously.  But…beggars cant be choosers!

From the same developer (Belkadan Software) you can download others apps called “menu extras” or “dockyard widgets”.  One allows you to control your dock from the menu bar and the second one lets you control your docks from the dashboard.  Cool!

Organized (widget) for Mac PowerPC

Some people don’t use their dashboard very often and disable it because it uses some memory ram to run all those widgets, but sometimes there are nice widgets that could help your day by day browsing, getting news or just using the computer regularly.  In fact, Apple was really smart to set up a location (like a desktop) for all your favorite widgets.  To take it a step further, there is a great widget I came across entitled Organized.  It’s a simple and fast way to check your calendar, events, world clocks, notes etc. All in a single widget.  If you like the idea, you should just visit the developer’s web site to gather more information.  It’s free to use and installation (and uninstallation) of this widget is VERY easy.

Wunderlist for Mac PowerPC (Task Management)

Wunderlist for Mac PowerPC (Task Management) 1.0.0 / 1.1.1

I took this Saturday, a good day off to make few extras post to upload during the weak, we know sometime the day pass by and we are very busy having our day-by-day responsibilities, work, home, blog, bills, appointments, grocery stores, concerts (of course) and etc.  You probably  know very well for having your own.  If you browse at App Store you will find tones of todo/task management things for Intel, but we are not allowed to use App Store, so we have to find our own way to get things done and we need to keep our day-by-day organized using PowerPC machines.  After browsing around I have found this app called Wunderlist that is available for PowerPC, it’s very easy to use and keep all your task organized, with this app you will be able to manager all your appointments and even sync with your devices like iPhone, iPodTouch, iPad, Blackberry, etc.  There is a really cool feature that you can ask for help with your Twitter or Facebook friends or even send by e-mail what you need to do and who could help you with.  I have to say this Cloud sharing and the synchronization with the devices are really good.  It would work very similar to iCal on iCloud.

I also need to point out the layout is well done, it’s an app that they took very well care about the design, it totally could be an Apple application and best thing “IT’S FREE”.  It’s very light to run, it uses about 50MB of RAM only.  I think the only downsize in this app is it doesn’t have alarm or reminders (yet) but it totally compatible for PowerPC so no complains from my side.

Wunderlist 1.1.1 (PowerPC Leopard) – http://cl.ly/3a122I0K0c1o082m3m15

After I finished this post I was checking for more informations about this app, and I found out they do have some product called Wunderkit, and this pack offers you more than a task management, but it looks they brought everything to browser, it looks like become an twitter account with task management, anyways worth a try: http://get.wunderkit.com/

Wundelist’s layout was inspired by David Allen’s best selling book “Getting Things Done”.

 

Evernote for Mac PowerPC

Evernote for Mac PowerPC (2.2.3)

When I found out that this app worked for my Mac PowerPC I was really excited and right away I installed it on my iPod Touch 8GB.  I think we Mac PowerPC users score one more point without having iCloud!    I highly recommend all PowerPC users try the Evernote app.  It’s the perfect solution to synching all your notes, drawings etc.  A great feature even allows you to take a picture of a document, make notes/mark-ups/edits to the Evernote, and then later it will be synched to your Mac.  You also can make and upload voice and audio notes, and share your notes with your friends on facebook and twitter.  There really is nothing quite like Evernote!    You can even create grocery lists and check off the items as you buy them in the store, or organize your favourite recipes, and then search by ingredients when you’re in the grocery store…makes shopping and meal planning so easy!  Gosh, I’m really hungry now! Most of the web-sites they released were for Intel only, but this weekend I was trying everything available for 10.5 and bingo, it worked perfect!  I immediately made my account and am ready to go!

If productivity means to be more productive, then Evernote is the epitome of Productivity because you can actually capture your ideas and inspirations on the go!

And we have a warning, look at the picture bellow.

Word Processor / Text Editor For Mac PowerPC

Productivity! Most people need a computer for their own organization and productivity.  A Mac computer is a very personal machine for this task otherwise the name wouldn’t have started with “i” – iBook, iWork, iMac and many iOthers that you can imagine.  But if you are looking for a good word processor and for some reason you don’t feel like you want to install an entire suite of applications like Open Office / iWork / Neo Office, here are some of the best options that you can find for a Mac PowerPC.

* Bean – (is a great software) It’s one of the best choices in my opinion, easy to use, fast, small and it does have a very clean interface, it’s not like other apps that have so many things going on in the window.  Runs perfect on Mac PowerPC 10.4.  http://www.bean-osx.com/Bean.html 

* AbiWord – (is a really good text editor ) This program is very similar to Microsoft Word, so the interface looks very busy, but this is just a detail of this open source app that is very suitable for a variety of word processing tasks.  Perfect for docs, letters, memos, etc.  http://www.abisource.com/

* iText Express – (another great app)  It’s a simple word processor, but it’s very powerful, you can not go wrong installing this small and fast application.  There are so many features that you will be impressed with it.  It’s very similar to Text Edit that comes in your Mac, but exceeds the limitations of Text Edit.  If you need something more powerful you can choose iText Pro, compatible with PPC 10.3 or later and Intel Mac too.  http://homepage.mac.com/lightway/iText/iTextExpress/pad_file.htm 

* iText – (is very cute) Sometimes when I start looking for a few applications to post here, it is a very hard task, but sometimes I find many great options to share with you.  This is one of these apps, that is absolutely unbelievable.  It’s fast, simple, very powerful features and it’s completely Free.  It runs perfect on PowerPC but is almost identical to Text Edit, and is worth a try.  http://homepage.mac.com/lightway/iText/ 

* Style X – (is very fast) This app is very simple, fast and compatible with PPC 10.0 or later.  http://www.merzwaren.com/style/
