CloudApp
CloudApp 2.0 launches with a major redesign and lots of new features.

Sharing documents with others can be hassle. You could mail attachments, or make use of services like Google Docs, but what if you’re looking for a quick and easy hassle-free way to share files, photos and other media via simple links rather than clogging up people’s inboxes with files they may have no interest in receiving?

CloudApp could be the answer. It offers a free account with up to 10 daily uploads at a maximum of 25MB per file. A $5/month Pro option ups the figure to unlimited uploads (250MB limit), but for the casual user the free version should be ample.

Sign up with an email and password, check your mail for the activation link and you’re good to go.

Now your account is up and running, you want a simple way to share files with your friends, which is where CloudApp comes in. This free app creates a cloud icon in the menu bar: drag your chosen file to this (or select the file and press your choice of hotkey combination – [Alt] + [C] is the default) and the program does the rest: uploads it to your online space and copies a short link to your clipboard. Just open up your email or chat tool, paste the link and you’re done.

You can take screenshots of anything on your Mac and share those too. CloudApp also ships with a range of plugins known as Raindrops: activate these to integrate the service with other apps too. Job done. No, seriously, that’s it.

Version 2 adds the following new features:
+ Instant Drops: share your links before uploading completes.
+ Lightnight fast screenshot shortcuts
+ Complete redesign of program interface.
+ Thumbnail previews of drops, infinite scroll history.
+ OS X Mavericks support.

Verdict:

Absurdly simple tool for sharing files and images via whatever medium suits.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
