Aged and Distilled has released Napkin 1.1 with a new automatic guide feature added to the visual communication and screenshot tool (reviewed earlier this year by Josh Centers; see “Napkin Offers a Fresh Take on Visual Communication,” 16 February 2013). A temporary visual guide is now displayed when moving or resizing a Napkin item, and its edges and center point snap to other items on a napkin. You can turn off the automatic snapping by holding the Command key when moving or resizing. The update also fixes a crash that occurred when deleting an image from a napkin that contained a Call-Out, and patches some small memory leaks. ($39.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 8.6 MB, release notes)
Track Bandwidth Use with VirusBarrier X6
If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.
