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 for Mac OS X and iOS.
Mac OS X Apps/Updates
The first DLC pack for XCOM 2, Anarchy's Children, is now available for the Mac from the Feral Store and Steam. This rebellion-themed pack introduces more than 100 new customizations for the entire arsenal of armors available to your XCOM soldiers.
These options are cosmetic and don’t alter the stats of a soldier. If you have purchased the Reinforcement Pack, or the XCOM 2: Digital Deluxe edition, don’t purchase Anarchy’s Children separately, as you will be charged for it again. For more information about Anarchy's Children, go to the XCOM 2 minisite.
Paul Matthijs Lombert, Roelof de Koning and Boy van Amstel have created Hedge 1.0. It’s a Mac OS X (Yosemite or El Capitan) video importing app designed to streamline the process of importing data from cameras.
Hedge creates multiple copies simultaneously, and guarantees every file is bit-for-bit perfect, says Matthjis. It imports files while verifying others and cross-references every copy against its source. Hedge shows transfers as “copying” or “completed” viaprogress indicators.
The app auto-launches AppleScripts for extendable workflows (sorting, transcoding, renaming, tagging. It supports all regular drives, including REDMAG, Compact Flash, XQD, SxS and P2.
Hedge is available to purchase for $15 a month or $150 for a year outside the EU, or Euro15/Euro150 within the EU. A free version, limited to two simultaneous transfers, is available for download.
