Sponsor: Lucidchart, Visio for Mac

10:46 AM, Feb. 11th, 2015 · · Weekly Sponsorship

It's my pleasure to thank Lucidchart for sponsoring TMO this week. Lucidchart is, in short, Visio for Mac users. In your browser. No separate app to download, but it sure does feel like a Mac app. Digging deeper, Lucidchart features a robust shape library with many templates including flowcharts, floor plans, business analysis, network infrastructure, and more. Additionally, Lucidchart can import and export Visio files, allowing Mac users to easily work on files with Visio for Windows users. Read more for how to get started for free.

Sponsor: Merlin from Project Wizards

It is my distinct pleasure to have Project Wizards on board this week to sponsor TMO with their awesome project management app, Merlin. Long-time followers of TMO history will note that Project Wizards has been sponsoring our Cirque du Mac party for the past 5 years straight, contributing directly to the benefit of our collective community here. Please join me in offering our sincere thanks for all of this.

Sponsor: The Omni Group

This week it is my absolute pleasure to welcome The Omni Group as our sponsor. And not only is The Omni Group this week's sponsor here, they were also instrumental in helping to make Cirque du Mac 2014 happen. They deserve (and got!) a big round of applause just for that. But that's not all. The Omni Group has been making fantastic apps for decades, and their iOS and Mac apps are all best-in-class.

Sponsor: Leawo Blu-ray Player for Mac

1:45 PM, Feb. 11th, 2014 · · Weekly Sponsorship

We would like to thank Leawo for sponsoring TMO this week. Listeners of recent Mac Geek Gab episodes have heard us discussing all manner of Blu-Ray topics, and one frustration is the fact that the Mac won't natively play DVDs, even if you've got a USB Blu-Ray reader. Enter Leawo's Blu-Ray Player for Mac.

Sponsor: PDFpen from Smile

3:41 PM, Nov. 27th, 2013 · · Weekly Sponsorship

In what perhaps will be my final post before Thanksgiving, I would like to offer my thanks to Smile, this week's sponsor here at TMO. Our focus for this spot is on PDFPen, the all-purpose PDF editing tool for the Mac. Our world lives half in paper and half online, and PDFs are the bridge between those halves. And while we can all create PDFs as easily as we can print them (hint: check the menu in the lower left of your Mac's print dialog), to modify them you need PDFPen.

Sponsor: PDFpen Scan+

2:56 PM, Sep. 26th, 2013 · · Weekly Sponsorship

I am happy to welcome Smile back as this week's sponsor here at TMO, and especially so this week because they've asked me to talk about their brand new product, PDFpen Scan+. Your iPhone's got a great camera, and it also has a really killer processor. Put those two things in the hands of the smart folks at Smile, and they turn out an app that will use the camera to scan documents and the processor to perform optical character recognition (OCR) on the text contained therein. The result can be a PDF with real text, not just a picture, or the raw text itself for you to edit.
