Goodies from the Mac Section of Brothersoft

Brothersoft, one of the leading software download websites in the world, has a Mac section (still in Beta) that offers more than a few goodies for new and old iOS users. As a new iOS user myself, I found their "Software for New Macfans" a nice place to start. Here are a few of the more interesting and impressive free apps and software I found:

MajicRank gives iPhone developers a simple way to keep track of how their apps are doing around the world. You can export the list as a csv file, keep track of top-grossing ranks, and download the latest top 100 statistics for any iPhone app, and for any category in all App Store regions. You can also graph results over time.

Mobile Mouse

This one really impressed me. Mobile Mouse will turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into an in-air mouse, trackpad, or wireless remote for your computer. Wow! The app uses the built-in accelerometer to turn your hand motions into mouse movements on the screen. The app even knows what kind of application is open and makes available the appropriate keys to operate with ease. you can control all your media and web applications from a single screen.


Apple FaceTime

Seems like a no-brainer. Face Time allows you to video chat with anyone on an iPhone 4, iPod touch, or Mac from your Mac over a Wi-Fi connection. You need an Apple ID and an email adress to set it up on your Mac.


With more and more iPhone users surfing the web, you need something to let you see how your website will show up on the iPhone. iPhoney does just that. The app gives web developers a canvas where they can test the quality of their 320 by 480 (or 480 by 320) website design. It gives you a pixel-accurate web browsing environment powered by Safari, and allows you to see the source code for the page you're viewing, which comes in handy when checking iPhone targeted pages.
