SCO0272 - OSX Menu Bar (Part 2) Trailer

As promised, this week I continue exploring the applications and utilities installed on my Production Mac Pro, specifically, those apps and utilities that reside in my OSX menu bar. I briefly describe some of the applications including some I've covered before such as: TextExpander Default Folder X Tags PogoPlug Drive ScreenFlow but I really only focus on why they are in my OSX menu bar, and how I use them. However, two applications are brand new to ScreenCastsOnline and they are: Skitch - a fantastic screen capture and image annotation tool. I cover the basics of Skitch and show some ways I use the app in my workflow. Skitch also includes a backend web service and as part of the download, you get a free Skitch account to use the web service. This allows you to upload and share your images in a variety of ways. This section also demos this extremely useful and free service. Alarms - a new application and one that is designed as a lightweight reminder service. Ideal for when you just want to remind yourself to do something later without the overhead of opening iCal or BusyCal, Alarms sits in your menu bar and allows you to drag objects to the menu bar icon to set up reminders immediately.
