  • Keka

    Free Mac Website

    Keka is a full featured file archiver, as easy as it can be.

    With Keka you can compress as many files as you want in a bunch of formats. Divide files and protect them with a password is now a kids game. Just drop the files you want to compress to the Keka icon in the Dock or the main window.

    Also Keka can extract lots of compressed files, from ZIP and 7Z to RAR archives, even parted ones. Just double click on those files and they will be extracted using Keka, or drop them to the icon in the Dock or the main window.

    So simple, so strong

    You do not even need to open Keka to compress a file, keep it in your dock and use it from there.
    Just drag and drop your files and folders to the Dock icon or the Keka window to create a slimmer version of them.

    Privacy is very important

    Share safely just setting a password and creating highly encrypted files.
    Using AES-256 encryption specification for your 7z files and
    Zip 2.0 legacy encryption specification for your Zip files.

    Still too big...

    If the files are really huge and they do not fit your mail or server, just split them into pieces.
    Don't worry, they will still expand to produce your original file :)

    Keka can create files in these formats:

    7Z ZIP TAR GZIP BZIP2 XZ LZIP DMG ISO

    And extract all of these formats:

  • Midair

    Freemium Windows Steam Website

    Midair is a fast-paced jetpack shooter set in a breathtaking new sci-fi universe. Use movement to your advantage, outwit your enemy from every angle, build defenses, and fully customize the way you play.

    TRUE FREEDOM
    Movement in Midair is an art. It's a flow. It's a learned, practiced skill that when you know it… you just feel it. Using your jetpack and frictionless boots, launch high-speed airborne assaults, expertly dodge enemy fire, and soar from hilltop to hilltop. Free yourself from the ground or become a quick frag for your opponent.

    The jetpack draws from your armor’s energy pool, so strategically manage your use of the jetpack and energy-based weapons to ensure your battle advantage. Depending on the situation, adjust your jetpack from pushing you upward to giving more maneuvering power. Veteran players know how to manage their jets and energy by instinct.

    TEAMWORK IS CRITICAL
    A team without coordination is like a shooter without jetpacks. In Midair it's critical that you coordinate your assaults for maximum effect. Take down their automated defenses one by one or sneak past the guards and destroy the generator to cripple their base and expose their flag for a quick grab.

    But remember, you'll need to keep your flag home too. They'll start by using bombers and tanks to bombard your fortifications and break your ranks. Heavily armored attackers with explosive weaponry will follow, trying to deal critical blows to your infrastructure. After that, elite light-armored enemies who have spent hours studying the terrain and perfecting their movement will race in, grab your flag, and get out -- and FAST.

    Repel the attack by keeping your base's main defenses operational, deploying forward sensors to track their movements, strategically place turrets deal out some extra damage, and get some fighters in the sky to maintain air superiority. With the right team and friends you can depend on, this will be a breeze.

  • 1.1.1.1

    Free Mac Windows Linux Web Windows Mobile ... Android iPhone Blackberry Chrome OS Windows S Android Tablet BSD Windows Phone iPad Blackberry 10 Apple TV Playstation Roku Xbox Website

    http://1.1.1.1

    DNS: Internet’s Directory
    Nearly everything on the Internet starts with a DNS request. DNS is the Internet’s directory. Click on a link, open an app, send an email and the first thing your device does is ask the directory: Where can I find this?

    Unfortunately, by default, DNS is usually slow and insecure. Your ISP, and anyone else listening in on the Internet, can see every site you visit and every app you use — even if their content is encrypted. Creepily, some DNS providers sell data about your Internet activity or use it target you with ads.

    We think that’s gross. If you do too, now there’s an alternative: 1.1.1.1

    Privacy First: Guaranteed.

    We will never sell your data or use it to target ads. Period.
    We will never log your IP address (the way other companies identify you). And we’re not just saying that. We’ve retained KPMG to audit our systems annually to ensure that we're doing what we say.

    Frankly, we don’t want to know what you do on the Internet—it’s none of our business—and we’ve taken the technical steps to ensure we can’t.

    Faster than anything else. 28% faster, in fact.

    We’ve built 1.1.1.1 to be the Internet’s fastest DNS directory. Don’t take our word for it. The independent DNS monitor DNSPerf ranks 1.1.1.1 the fastest DNS service in the world.

    Since nearly everything you do on the Internet starts with a DNS request, choosing the fastest DNS directory across all your devices will accelerate almost everything you do online.

  • Doughnut

    Free Mac Website

    Doughnut is a podcast client built using Swift. The design and user experience are inspired by Instacast for Mac which was discontinued in 2015. After experimenting with alternate user interface layouts, I kept coming back to the three column layout as most useable and practical.

    Beyond the standard expected podcast app features, my goals for the project are:

    • Support an iTunes style library that can be hosted on an internal or network shared drive
    • Ability to favourite episodes
    • Ability to create podcasts without a feed, for miscellaneous releases of discontinued podcasts

    Previously Doughnut was built on top of Electron which worked ok, but using 200+ MB for a podcast app, even when it's minimized felt very poor. This version is archived in the electron branch. Doughnut is now written as a 100% native MacOS app in Swift.

      o In the context (right-click) menu for the current page, and for all links.
      o In the toolbar, just customize it to drag the button in.
