Acorn 4 – The Image Editor for Humans
Website | Mac App Store

** On Sale for a Limited Time **

Grab Acorn 4 at a super low price, down from $49.99

I bought Acorn 1.x some years ago and used it in conjunction with Pixelmator and Adobe Photoshop.

Acorn is a more than capable image editor, especially for those who would not want to pay a lot of money to Adobe. (Sorry David)




New and Thinner Square Reader

April 18, 2014

I received the new and thinner Square reader for a few weeks already. I finally took it out of the packaging and compare it with the older reader.

The new Square reader is roughly half the thickness of the old one, but has a slightly larger surface area.

The new Square reader is required by June 1, 2014.
