Summer of Mac gems: Here's what you missed

Macworld Staff | Sept. 3, 2012
It seems like it was just yesterday that we kicked off our annual Summer of Mac Gems marathon, where we featured a quality, inexpensive Mac app every weekday. We got through a lot of different programs, from tools for managing your Instagram photos to battery saving utilities and everything in between. In case you missed a few, here's our complete list of products from GemFest 2012.

Streambox 4.2 is a Pandora Radio client that you can control using the media keys (previous track, play/pause, next track) on your keyboard or, if you prefer, custom keyboard shortcuts.

beQuiet 2.4 ensures that your Mac's external speakers stay muted, which is especially helpful when working in a quiet environment.

Looky 1.0.0 is a menu-bar utility for quickly popping open a live view from your Mac's built-in camera--perfect for keeping an eye on who might be sneaking up behind you.

Daypart 2.1.1 lets you schedule playback of iTunes playlists. The app works with regular, Smart, and Genius playlists.

Screeny 2.0.1 is a solid tool for basic screen sharing and screencasts, great for demonstrating how to fix a technical problem or showing off a Mac feature.

ReFind 1.1 is useful for anyone--developers, designers, audio pros, you name it--who uses a large number of frequent folders. It provides the capability to jump directly to a frequently used folder or file from within any application--without searching or clicking through stacks of open Finder windows.
