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.

iOS Apps/Updates

Mobo Kids has grown Mobo Greenhouse Garden 1.0. Aimed primarily at children, the $2.99 education app helps young players learn about nature and taking care of seeds. Players need to grow crops, protect them from moles, harvest, extract the weeds and find out what to do with magic beans.

It also improves download speed. Cisdem Video Converter is compatible with macOS 10.9 and higher. It costs $49.99; a demo is available for download.

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 12.0.1, a maintenance release of its professional strength HTML and text editor. It’s a recommended update that includes refinements and fixes for specific reported issues.

BBEdit maintains the recently introduced evaluation model in which the full, complete feature set is available for the first 30 days of use. At the end of the 30-day evaluation period, the permanently functional feature set changes to include BBEdit's editing capabilities, but not its web authoring tools or other exclusive features. BBEdit’s exclusive features may be re-enabled at any time with a purchased license.

Anyone who purchased BBEdit 11 on or after March 1 is eligible to receive a free upgrade, while all eligible customers who purchased directly from Bare Bones Software have been notified automatically via email. New licenses and upgrade licenses are available directly from the Bare Bones Software online store.
