Notable apps and app updates for Oct. 28, 2016

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

CS Software Consultancy has launched Caato Time Tracker+ 1.0, a new app to track work time & billable hours for macOS and iOS. 

It was designed to make time tracking as simple and as fast as possible. Users can track time for new clients and projects with just one click. There’s no need to fill out any fields; details can be added later. An Apple Watch app lets users start or stop tracking while on the move.

Caato Time Tracker+ is free, though there’s a pro version available for $5.99 a month or $29.99 for six months. The macOS app is available at the Mac App Store, and the iOS app is available at the Apple App Store.

AKVIS has introduced Magnifier 9.0, an update of the tool for increasing image resolution. macOS and Windows compatible, the new version offers more configurability and customization options including the expanded pixel limit, new resolution values, support for Ultra HD, and other improvements.

AKVIS Magnifier automatically removes artifacts and preserves image details and sharpness of edges. Using the Batch Processing feature, it's possible to apply the same settings to all of the images within a directory.

The product is available as a standalone application and as a plugin filter for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. AKVIS Magnifier, Home license, sells for $89. One license key allows activating the software on two computers.  The update is free for users who bought Magnifier in the last 12 months. Otherwise you can upgrade to version 9.0 for $14.95.
