Notable apps and app updates for June 13, 2018

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they’re popular and deserve mention. Here are today’s picks.

macOS Apps/Updates

CampSoftware has released SpeakerCue, its’ “confidence monitor” for Macs and Windows systems. It’s a “confidence monitor” for professional producers and presenters. 

Featuring a customizable clock with a variety of color and display options, SpeakerCue is designed for those on both sides of the podium, including the person who is speaking, an assistant during a live presentation, or a producer of speaking engagements. 

SpeakerCue requires a Mac or PC for the person who is controlling the time and messaging, and an external display within view of the speaker to receive those messages. On the Mac, macOS 10.9.5 or later is required.

You can visit SpeakerCue online to download a free demo. In demo mode, SpeakerCue will auto-quit after 10 minutes, but it can be relaunched as often as you’d like.

Ergonis Software has announced Typinator 7.6, a new version of their text expander for macOS. Preparing the way for compatibility with Mojave, the upgrade offers many usability, stability, and compatibility improvements.

In particular, Typinator contains built-in helper applications that have now been updated to 64-bit, which is required on Mojave. What’s more, Typinator 7.6 allows to suppress update checks in full-screen mode, which prevents update messages that kick in during presentations with Keynote, PowerPoint, etc.

Typinator requires macOS 10.6 or newer. It can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website. The upgrade to Typinator 7.6 is free for Typinator 7 license owners and for anyone who purchased a license for Typinator 6 in or after January 2016. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses.
