The NLMA (NeatLittleMacApps) podcast is my tribute to those neat little Mac apps that are out there. Expect an inspired enhanced review podcast that throws screenshots at you, so fast, that you'd think it's a movie ;). Occasionally I'll be interviewing a developer and talk about his take on his software. How he came up with the idea of making it, how he made it and whether he likes milk.

NLMA 057 Vinoteka

About this episode: You Mac nuts all remember the wonder that was Delicious Library, not? It set the scene for an era of Mac Apps that were developed with an eye for detail and looks. Vinoteka is a classic example of that art! Not only is it extremely userfrienly, it also looks stunning. It's apps like Vinoteka that made me start this podcast, and frankly, I'm glad I found out about it. As for it's purpose? It's a wine management app. You can store references, actual bottles you own and...

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. It's a technique to create vivid cool looking pictures that grab their colors and detail from a differently exposed set of pictures... Sounds difficult? It's not with Photomatix Pro.

1/22/2009
More
For those of you freeloaders who refuse to pay good money for an app that allows you to create Icons... Here's your chance. It appears our friends at Apple have all the tools you need, all at your disposal, for free. Isn't that nice? And what is more. It works (what else are we accustomed to from Apple) in the most simple way possible.

NLMA 051 Timeline 3D

1/5/2009
More
Screenshot based on Wikipedia article. Timeline 3D offers for a great way to display... wel... events! But these aren't the dull grey timelines one had to make in school. These aren't the numbing presentations where all the stuff just turns into one big pile of dates and facts. Timeline 3D will offer you a visually stunning overview of all your timelines. With the various export features, this app will deliver you the goods, for teachers, writers, business people or students. This...

DMG Architect Style. It's what makes the difference in a lot of cases. And continuity of that style allows for good branding. And good branding is good for business... But it doesn't stop with the creation of a good nicely styled Application for example. The delivery should be nicely packaged too. DMG Architect gives you that option, no matter what the package is.

NLMA 047 Billings 3

Usability: If ever there was a thing that attracts me the most in Mac software, it's clean UI design and usability. It's this thought-out approach that a lot of Mac devs have on their software. It's often the little intrinsic details that get me excited about an app. You actually 'want' to start working with it just for the sheer fun of it. This weeks app is no different. Except,... I also need to work with it instead of just 'wanting' to work with it. App name: Billings...

NLMA 046 Systemtrash interview Leo Laporte

What's this all about? A few years ago I cohosted this vidcast called Systemtrash. It has podfaded by now, but I had a series of interviews with some very famous people in the podcastosphere (Leo Laporte, Ze Frank, Marshall Kirk McKusick, Adam Christianson,..). Looking back I realize that those were the beginning days of podcasting. Ze hadn't even started to do his 'The Show' series, the TWIT army just had it's first few shows to listen to. Adam practically was the only real Mac-related...
