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

Feral Interactive has announced that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II is now available on Mac App Store.

Here’s how the game is described: “The sinister science fantasy universe of Warhammer 40,000 springs to brutal life in a pitiless war pursued by six rival races across the inhabited worlds of Sub-Sector Aurelia. Fight for the survival of your kind in Dawn of War II, Chaos Rising and Retribution, three outstanding games linked by the relentless combat of implacable enemies.”

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II costs US$19.99. It requires macOS 10.11.5 or higher.

Publicspace has introduced Vitamin-R 2.48 for macOS. The app breaks down large, vaguely defined tasks into a series of short time slices of between 10 and 30 minutes, each with specific, actionable objectives.

Vitamin-R features an array of highly configurable visual, audio and speech notifications. Version 2.49 adds support for the Things 3 to-do list manager.

Vitamin-R requires macOS 10.10 or later. The single user version of Vitamin-R is available for $24.99 from the Mac App Store and for $24.95 from the publicspace web store.

The web store also offers family, business and enterprise licensing and customers may chose to include a "forever upgrade" with their purchase. Each Vitamin-R web store purchase includes a free license for its companion product, Noise Machine, which is also available separately starting at $4.95.
