Increase Boom Volume Quickly

If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.

DragThing 5.9.7

Send Article to a Friend

TLA Systems has released DragThing 5.9.7, a small but significant update to its popular application launcher. The most significant change in this release is compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which comes in the form of several user-interface tweaks and the correction of a number of Lion-related bugs, three of which could cause crashes. It’s also worth noting that DragThing 5.9.7 now requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later. ($29 new, free update, 5.1 MB, release notes)
