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!

Typinator 5.4

Send Article to a Friend

With the release of Typinator 5.4, Ergonis’s typing expansion utility now enables you to export abbreviation sets using either tab-delimited text format or comma-separated value (CSV) format. The update also improves imports from TextExpander with conversion of date/time calculations, special keys, and input fields. The release also avoids a delay after opening the Typinator window for the first time, fixes an issue with Default Folder X, and provides improved compatibility with Photoshop CS6 droplets. (€24.99 new with a 25-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.0 MB, release notes)
