FREE iOS, tvOS AND macOS Software for 10/2019

software
I have been publishing a list of free software for iOS, tvOS and OS X each month for some time. 

macOS software is now being compiled in a large, cumulative table. Many titles were appearing repeatedly in this list. I think the macOS Software directory will both take less time for me and provide users with a better way to discover Mac software. 

The macOS Software directory is updated frequently and currently contains more than 280 entries. More than 100 of those entries are available for FREE download.

Product Review – Texas Historical Marker Guide App

web-artwork

(See my other 2019 Road Trip and iOS related posts) – On our recent road trip, my wife and I passed several Texas Historical Markers along the roadside. We were curious as to what they said but really didn’t want to take the time to stop and read them. That made me remember a book my father had “Why Stop?: A Guide to Texas Roadside Historical Markers“.

51Bvzgr1LfL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

This book was published in 2013 and contains the information of more than 2500 Texas roadside markers. They are still available on Amazon for $15.76 (paperback) and $9.59 (Kindle) at the time I write this.

Of course, the information in that guide is dated and I didn’t have a copy with me on our trip.

I checked to see if there was anything on-line about the markers. What I discovered is the “Texas Historical Marker Guide” App for the iPhone. Not only does this App have more than 16,000 Historical Markers included in its database, but it also has the ability for users to contribute updates.

The App can be purchased through the App Store for $2.99. Per the App website:

Texas is home to over 15,000 historical markers. And now there’s an app to help you find them!

Features:
-Onboard marker database means you can browse markers without an Internet connection.
-Browse markers by geographic locations including cities and counties.
-Browse markers by type, size, and subject.
-Browse attractions where markers can be found including cemeteries; state parks; historic districts; etc.
-Uses Location Services to find your current location and display markers in the current county. (Internet connection required)
-Check-in at markers to keep track of visits!
-Update marker coordinates! (Device with GPS radio required)
-Record marker conditions!

-Includes conditions of marker where reported.
-Includes text for many markers with more being added frequently.

-Take pictures with an in-app camera or import from camera roll! (Pictures are not included with app.)
-Share your favorite markers via FaceBook, Flickr, Mail, and iMessage!

Includes:
-Texas Centennial markers and monuments from 1936!
-Old San Antonio Road markers erected by DAR and the State of Texas in 1918!
-San Jacinto Battleground markers erected by DRT and the State of Texas in 1912!
-Complete Texas works of Pompeo Coppini!
-Selected Texas works of Waldine Tauch, Frank Teich, Elisabet Ney, and others!
-Blue Star Memorial markers (all the ones we know about.)
-New markers erected since 2012!

This is an App that we will use almost every time we are out on the roads (not the Interstates) of Texas.

IMG_1319

If you and your family drive Texas, this might be an inexpensive App to help pass the time on the road while learning more about our state.

In the 34 county Hill Country region of Texas, the App shows more than  2300 markers. More than 25 markers show up in the App within 5 miles of my home location.

I used the location of the CapMac (Capital Macintosh User Group) meetings (red arrow) I attend monthly in Austin and found all of the markers shown in the image to the left. You can literally find markers all over the state.

If you really like the App, follow them on Facebook.

 

 

Pros

  1. Inexpensive at $2.99
  2. Automatically tracks your location
  3. Nearby markers pop up on map
  4. User can easily drill down to details of marker

Cons

  1. Text is a little small and can be challenging to read in a moving vehicle
  2. More of a desire than a Con: it would be nice to be able to touch a button to have the details read to you
  3. More of a desire than a Con: it would be nice to have a setting that would automatically read you every marker within a set distance

Revised and Expanded FREE iOS, tvOS AND macOS Software List for 08/2019

software
I have been publishing a list of free software for iOS, tvOS and OS X each month for some time. Starting with the June 2019 list I have expanded the coverage to include many more titles for macOS. This month I have decided to change the format again.

Moving forward, I will continue to post free iOS software, but macOS software will be compiled in a large, cumulative table. Many titles were appearing every month and I think this will both take less time for me and provide users with a better way to lookup Mac software. The table with the first 22 entries can be found on the macOS Software page.

Please give me feedback if this expanded list is valuable to you.

You may find some of these programs of interest. I have also attempted to mark which Apple OS the title is targeted at (iOS, macOS, tvOS) as well as the category of the App.

This is NOT a curated list. All I know about these titles is what you see below. None have been tried or tested by me.

macOS New App Release – Toolbox for iWork

Jumsoft of Vilnius, Lithuania has released an update to their popular productivity assistant Toolbox for iWork. The update brings some of the most anticipated features just in time for the new academic year. The most notable change is that Toolbox for iWork becomes truly cross-platform and allows using purchased items on any macOS or iOS device with a single purchase.

“Toolbox for iWork is by far our largest and most comprehensive collection of templates designed for the Apple iWork suite. It offers items for Apple Pages, Keynote, and Numbers – all in one place. It is truly an unmatched product in terms of quality, quantity, and price in the market” – said Algirdas Unguvaitis, CEO of Jumsoft. “We always wanted to give our users a truly integrated experience with our products across any number of devices. The update brings our users something they were eagerly waiting for quite a while – seamless cross-platform activation. It means that Toolbox for iWork users will now be free to use the app on any macOS or iOS device, regardless of where they purchased the app originally!”

The technical changes required to implement cross-platform purchase activation meant that the app had to transition to a free download with in-app purchases business model. This allows handling activations via iCloud instead of requiring users to sign up to additional, completely unnecessary accounts. As a side-effect, this also enables users to download the app, browse its content and try out some items before having to commit to a purchase. Users of previous versions of the app are automatically granted the “Lifetime” activation, which can always be re-activated by using the “Restore Purchases” option.

Toolbox for iWork is the largest productivity templates collection available on the Mac and iOS App Stores. It currently contains over 40,000 original, hand-crafted and quality-checked items. Jumsoft update content regularly: 700 new items have already been added to date in 2019 alone! The range contains everything from comprehensive and professional presentation layouts and themes for Keynote, a plethora of infographics templates, to an expansive collection of print templates for Pages – it is a perfect choice for any student, educator, business-owner, and anyone in between. The updated Toolbox for iWork is available worldwide on the Mac App Store and iOS App Store.

  20. iOS/Games – If you like puzzles and have a knack for finding the right placement of pieces, then check out Puzzle Place by Steven Grinder. A simple app, it provides players with endless hours of entertainment, testing visual acuity and aptitude, to correctly judge where block formations will go to create the final assembly. Final assemblies can differ, so no two puzzles are the same, which is what you would want from a good puzzle app. The colorful and responsive app makes movement of pieces and the ability to view the entire playing screen clearer, which makes it easier to move around and see how you are progressing as you select pieces and slide them around and fit them.
