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 this week’s picks.


Dejal has announced Time Out 2.6, an update to their break reminder app for macOS.

Using a computer for hours on end can lead to eye, back, and neck strain. Time Out 2 offers users gentle reminders to take breaks, allowing them to stretch and relax. Version 2.6 adds the ability to have breaks at a fixed number of minutes past the hour, smaller frequency and duration amounts, a new Random Word theme, Catalina support, and more.

Time Out 2.6 requires macOS 10.10 or later. It’s free and is available at the Mac App Store.

The Proof Group and NorthEast DataBase Solutions have launched the first community edition version of fmEZcharts, a chart and dashboard tool for Claris FileMaker. 


They say it offers a tighter, cleaner look and feel, with improved functionality and usability. It also includes new features like the ability to pick themes, colors, and data sets, as well as a larger selection of ready-to-go charts.

The community edition of fmEZcharts is available to download for free. It comes with a locked copy of fmEZCharts, pre-configured chart examples, a demo video to get you started, and community forum support. 

Pomfort has released Livegrade Studio for macOS. Targeted at users working in multi-camera setups, it offers a router control infrastructure that enables handling of multiple live video signals.

Users can view and interactively switch between multiple sources and destinations quickly. They can also create routing presets that help automate the process.

The software comes with a set of grading controls that enable users to create a consistent visualization of the DP's creative intent across multiple cameras. 

Advanced, yet fully ASC CDL-compliant interaction types, like contrast, as well as Lift, Gamma, Gain, and Printer Lights, allow visualization of looks directly on the live images. 

Livegrade Studio requires macOS 10.13 or higher. It’s available as a yearly subscription for $999 or as a project license starting from $249. Livegrade Studio can be purchased in Pomfort's web store, or through authorized resellers. A 10-day demo is available for download.

Developed by thatgamecompany and published by Annapurna Interactive, it can be purchased via the App Store for $4.99. iOS players can experience gorgeous visuals and touch-responsive controls on iPhones and iPads, along with the ability to meet and experience the game with an online companion in multiplayer mode.
