Adobe Acrobat Reader 18.011.20063 - View PDF documents.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 07:38

Adobe Acrobat Reader allows users to view PDF documents. You may not know what a PDF file is, but you've probably come across one at some point. PDF files are used by companies and even the IRS to distribute documentation and other pieces of information about their products, and Adobe Acrobat Reader is the essential interpreter. Acrobat integrates directly with your Web browser, so if you come across a PDF document on the Web, you can view it directly from within your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser window. Acrobat also makes printing much more practical, by guaranteeing that the printout will look exactly like it does on your screen.

Version 18.011.20063:

RapidWeaver 8 review: Device simulator can't replace true WYSIWYG editing

MacCentral - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 07:00

Realmac Software’s RapidWeaver is a WYSIWYG (“what you see is what you get”) website development application designed to do most of the heavy lifting for you. Its easy-to-modify templates make it a snap to create a modern, custom website designs though the comfort of a user interface that feels like one that came straight out of Cupertino.

WYSIWYG web apps aren’t as novel as they once were-online services like Wix offer to do the same thing for free or dirt cheap, often bundled with bargain-priced web hosting. And to be fair, even the latest version of RapidWeaver will get you only so far on its own, which is why Realmac continues to foster a community chock full of add-ons including themes, plugins, and stacks that users can purchase to accomplish more advanced tasks the host software alone can’t handle.

Still possible to make money with side projects?

iOS Programming - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 06:41

The market seems very saturated in general so I’m just curious if it’s possible (or if anyone here has any examples) to make money as a sole developer working on some side app projects?

I have a friend who used to make £400 a month with a simple Reddit clone years ago from ad revenue.

The real winner: It’s never Apple

MacCentral - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 06:00

Now that we’ve had some time to digest Apple’s announcements last week, The Macalope wonders who we can, in hindsight, determine to be the real winner.

Writing for the Forbes contributor network and competitive fish slapping circuit, Ewan Spence finds “Three Reasons The Nokia 5.1 Can Beat The New iPhone XR.”

Sorry, The Macalope should have issued a spit take warning for that one. His bad.

Yes, turns out, Nokia still makes smartphones! Or, at least, it slaps its name on them. Who knew? Finland, probably.

GeoGebra Classic 6 6.0.496.0 - Interactive mathematic software (was GeoGebra).

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 04:18

GeoGebra Math Apps (was GeoGebra) is a dynamic mathematics software for all levels of education that joins arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and calculus. It offers multiple representations of objects in its graphics, algebra, and spreadsheet views that are all dynamically linked.

While other interactive software (e.g., Cabri Geometry, Geometer's Sketchpad) focus on dynamic manipulations of geometrical objects, the idea behind GeoGebra is to connect geometric, algebraic, and numeric representations in an interactive way. You can do constructions with points, vectors, lines, and conic sections, as well as functions, and change them dynamically afterwards. Furthermore, GeoGebra allows you to directly enter and manipulate equations and coordinates. Thus you can easily plot functions, work with sliders to investigate parameters, find symbolic derivatives, and use powerful commands like Root or Sequence.

Version 6.0.496.0:
  • Fix for LaTeX fonts

  • OS X 10.9 or later
