iCal Alerts You Can't Miss

Did you miss that tiny little iCal alert dialog? Use a more prominent Open File alarm.

First save an image, text file, sound, or movie that will really fill your screen and grab your attention.

Select an iCal event and choose Open File as the alert type. Choose your unmissable file as the one to open.

Set more alerts with more files to open for the same event if you like. You won't miss an appointment with one of these alerts!

Airfoil 4.7.3

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has updated its Airfoil network audio streaming app for the Mac to version 4.7.3, which now offers full support for receiving audio through Airfoil Speakers from devices running iOS 6. The Instant On component receives an update to version 6.0.2 to fix several unspecified issues, and the Airfoil Video Player has been fixed to avoid a crash on OS X 10.8.2. Additionally, audio can be captured from the WebKit application on Mountain Lion and Airfoil has been given an improved update process with automatic downloads and installation on quitting the app (via a newer version of Sparkle). ($25 new with a 15-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 9.1 MB, release notes)
