Web Excursions for May 14, 2013

[Tweet : nvALT]

Web excursions brought to you by CleanMyMac 3, all the tools to speed up your Mac, in one app.

FatURL
FatURL takes a text block of urls and captions and turns them into a “bunched” URL for easy sharing. A potential replacement for linkbun.ch for me, and potentially an easier-to-setup replacement for the bit.ly bundle tool I built.
Together 3
I was, at one point, a hardcore user of this app as my central “bucket” for notes, PDFs and, well, everything. I’m really glad to see it making a version leap and am testing it out right now to see if I might be headed back to it.
Curio 8.6 with Panic Status Board support
I don’t use Curio for project management, but if you do, this could be awesome.
Poetreat
Poets are going to dig this, I think. It gives you syllable counts, rhyming dictionary and other tools for writing structured prose. I’m looking forward to trying it out for lyric writing. See also: Verses.
GistBox: The Beautiful Way to Organize Code Snippets
Pretty awesome, web-based snippet storage using Github’s Gist functionality. I still want a good native app for doing the same, but the Github package for Sublime is doing a pretty good job for me.
