This week, I found a fantastic app that runs and works great on PowerPC – Leopard! Screenium 1.5 or 2.1.8 is software that allows the user to record what’s happening on the screen. Super convenient if you’re someone with a youtube channel, or someone who needs to create an instructional video or training for an online function or program!
There are nice features like recording a fixed area, full screen, mouse area or a single window. Also it has support for microphones, so you can add your comments as you record. You can use a camera as well!
It’s easy to use and the results are fantastic.
It’s not free – so please make sure to contact them before purchasing because you need to make sure they still providing license to this version. The currently version is 3.1.3 and it’s Intel only. This version does however allow a demo try.
I’m very satisfied with the results and this app has a great deal of potential, even being a bit outdated, it still gets the job done very well.
So ladies and gentlemen, this is another great reminder to take your PPC’s out and use them to their full potential!
Sometimes we have these apps that are a must to have installed and we always forget to mention them because we assume everybody already knows about them…
I realized that Audacity is one of these fantastic apps…so I am going to break the cycle of not mentioning the basics…right now.
Audacity is a powerful music editor, recorder and player (also it’s free open source). You can either record your music, edit your tracks for DJs or wannabe sound editors or even for the newest millennial podcastor! A lot of features that you would probably pay big bucks with other apps (that you’d have to purchase), you end up getting for free with Audacity.
So get your PowerPC out of the closet and start playing with Audacity. It’s really fun and maybe we can find yourself with a new hobby or even a new profession.
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.
Happy New Year to all of us and 2016 just started and I think from now only the strongest PowerPC users will keep on keeping on.
viJournal 2.3.9 Lite – PowerPC friendly (10.5 (Leopard) It is a free lightweight version of viJournal. It’s designed as an old-fashioned page-a-day bound diary. You write your entries under dated headers and save them collectively by month and year. ViJournal has many powerful features, all added in such a way that they do not clutter the interface or detract from the original purpose of having viJournal work like a traditional bound diary. It’s simple and light, runs very good on 10.5 and It a definitely an app to have installed.
SJphone® is a VOIP softphone that allows you to speak with any other softphone running on a PC/PDA, any stand-alone IP-phone, or using Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP) with any traditional wired or mobile phone. It supports SIP and is fully inter-operable with most major VOIP vendors and ITSPs.
I would say that djaying is one of the most time consuming thing to do with your computer if you are into music and throw party to friends.
Sad news to get the newest Macbook Air or Macbook Pro just to djaying is very expensive, so why not look for an old cheap option like PowerBook or iBook, most of people won’t know the different unless you are using a very cool colour iBook G3 or a PowerBook Pismo/Wallstreet that the Apple logo is upside down.
Either way you can install a old version of Djay (3.1.2) totally compatible with Mac OS X 10.5. Of course there are some limitations when you compare the most recent 4.2.3, but the application run just fine and you will rock the party… …as long as your music rocks, of course.
Have fun guys.
