Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Evernote 5.4.3

Send Article to a Friend

Updating its eponymous information management app to version 5.4.3, Evernote improves support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks as well as support for the ScanSnap Evernote Edition scanner. The update now enables you to rotate or delete pages from a PDF, add a markup summary page to annotated PDFs, and flip or rotate pages. Evernote 5.4.3 also improves support for dragging images into the app from Web browsers. One known issue with the latest release is the inability for Spotlight to index notes created in Evernote when running Mavericks, but a fix is promised. (Free from Evernote or the Mac App Store, 50.6 MB)
