PhotoReviewer 3: Fast image display & organization
(No payment links – PhotoReviewer is freeware)
is a utility designed to help out with the flood of digital photographs folks are inundated with nowadays. It's the fastest way to review, sort, or just look at your photos. Full size or thumbnails, EXIF support, histograms, side-by-side
comparison, sorting folders, direct camera import, bulk renaming... and did we mention it's fast?
Eyeballs 3.5: Eyes that keep you company
(No payment links – Eyeballs is freeware)
provides you with a pair of eyes that watch what you do (and if that sounds odd, well, they're a little hard to explain :->). They're quite friendly and nice, and very configurable; you can even make your own custom skins! [more...
(No payment links – Jiggler is freeware)
is a little freeware app that keeps your Mac awake. When you have some lengthy task for your computer, it's annoying to have to turn off your screensaver and turn off the sleep timer, just to turn it all back on again when you're done. Enter Jiggler. It jiggles your mouse to keep your computer awake. [more...

The apps below this point have not been updated in quite a long time, and may not run on recent versions of OS X.
is a game for Mac OS X that was inspired by Tetris. You have to rotate and position the falling triangles to try to make areas that are all one color.

BigFoot 2.2: Happy feet for your desktop
is a Mac OS X "desktop critter" that provides you with endless entertainment, in the form of a pair of feet. But not just any feet!

They are based on an app I wrote many years ago now; this is a complete rewrite for OS X. [more...
Aquatint 1.1: Make your own Aqua-style images
Price: $15/$50 (PayPal $15 $50

With Aquatint, you'll be cranking out your own custom Aqua icons and images effortlessly. [more...
