    Fresh was born on that sinking feeling we have whenever we head into the Finder to ‘Find’ that file that we are working on, just downloaded, or like to keep handy. Fresh is designed to hide itself when you are not using it – keeping your onscreen clutter of windows more managable. Note that although […]

Mavericks, tags and more.

All of Ironic’s applications set tags using industry standard tagging conventions. We are pleased to announce that Apple has finally ‘caught the tagging fever’. On 10.9 all ironic product use these new tags, while still setting tags that can be seen by anyone using 10.7 or later.

Our products are definitely not all about tagging, though. Take Leap for instance. With it you can show all the images on your hard drive in seconds, and use its folder list and searching to find that photoshop or png that went missing last week.  We don’t know how people who work on their Mac all day can do without Fresh – which is a search tool and ‘file dock’ that makes sense.

Professional workflow

Ironic’s applications support your creative workflow. Yep shows you all your office related documents, Fresh allows you to use your most important and recent documents when you need them – without switching to the Finder. Leap is a ninja quality explorer useful for adept professionals of all types, from creative to developers. Deep allows you to search through all the images on your computer for ones that ‘match’ any other photo – great for finding images that work well together.

Apple’s App Store and Ironic’s Store

Ironic supports two ways to buy its products. You can buy through the Mac App Store, or through one of our own stores, run by FastSpring and Kagi. The downloadable copies of our programs can be licensed by purchasing a license from the Ironic Store. This licence is more suited for some business applications, as it does not require a Mac App Store account.

Buy from our Kagi store
