Duration: 29:20

Show ref: SCOM0456

A Mac Montage show this week, where I take a look at hints, tips or Apps that don't warrant a show on their own.

This week I cover:

Keyboard Shortcuts - A selection of keyboard shortcuts and workflows I use every day.

XtraFinder - A free Finder plugin that boosts your productivity using the Finder, with one extra special feature I can't do without.

Dispatch is an action based email client for the iPhone.

With fantastic gesture support as well as rich integration with other third party apps, Dispatch can definitely be considered a viable alternative to Apple's standard email client with support for most major iMAP based email systems.

If you're frustrated with the lack of support for TextExpander in the standard Apple email client, Dispatch has its own built in snippets, but even better is that it allows you to access all your current TextExpander snippets too.

In this first part of a two part series, I take a look at some of the basics of installing and using Dispatch, along with the rich integration of third party apps.
