Easy Fetch Upload

If you want to upload an open file (e.g. in Photoshop or BBEdit) to a remote server via the Fetch FTP client, you can use drag-and drop without switching to the Finder. Just drag the small document icon in the window title bar to a Fetch window. If the icon won't drag, make sure the file is saved.

TextExpander 3.3 -- If you’ve dreamed of automating an automation utility, TextExpander 3.3 is here for you. The new version of Smile Software’s utility for turning short text snippets into longer blocks of text (or for fixing common typing errors) adds AppleScript support, along with a couple of sample scripts. The update also includes toolbar customization options for the Backup Now, Restore, and Logging commands; adds support for guillemets (« ») as delimiter characters; allows keypress macros (Tab, Return, Esc, Enter) to be nested in fill-in snippets; and automatically capitalizes contractions of “I” (such as “I’m” or “I’d”) at the beginning of sentences. ($34.95 new, free update, 5.6 MB)

iTunes 10.2.2 -- The changes may be minor in Apple’s release of iTunes 10.2.2, but they’re still welcome. The update addresses an issue when iTunes can become unresponsive when syncing an iPad, and a separate issue that could cause syncing photos with iOS devices to take longer than necessary. Also corrected is an issue with skipping video previews in the iTunes Store. (Free, 75.59 MB)
