…Poladroid keeps the Polaroid style alive?

Poladroid

Poladroid is an easy and fun Polaroid image-maker for the Mac.

To make high-resolution Polaroid-like images out of your digital photos, just drag and drop your images into the program, and wait.

Getting a little impatient?

You can shake the picture to make them develop faster, just like the real thing.

The app automatically crops your images to the appropriate size, and even adjusts the colors and clarity to match the Polaroid style.

…iPhone Apps are going to be amazing?

If you’re wondering what kind of capabilities and unique features iPhone Apps are going to have, look no further than OmniFocus and Schmap.

OmniFocus

OmniFocus is a professional-grade personal task manager that taps into the iPhone’s GPS to provide you with location based task lists.

OmniFocus Demo

At the store?

OmniFocus automatically pops up with the grocery list that you put together when you drive up.

Back at work?

OmniFocus automatically switches over to your list that you put together with work related tasks.

Neat, huh?

Schmap Logo

The second application, Schmap, which is actually a currently available web application, though it will no doubt be something that takes advantage of becoming a native App as well, uses the iPhone’s gyro sensor to automatically change the view based on how you are holding the phone.

Schmap Demo

Hold it vertical, and a list of available destinations pops up; but switch and hold it horizontal, and you’re automatically presented with a map of locations and additional information.

What will they think of next?

MacHeist Retail Bundle

A new MacHeist bundle is on its way, and according to the Teaser that was just posted on the MacHeist site, it’s going to be “12 Top Mac Apps…and a price that’s a steal!”

The video’s a bit tough to make out, but it looks like the applications include Cha-Ching, CoverSutra, XSlimmer, Awaken, Nanosour 2, Bugdom 2, WingNuts2, WriteRoom, DevonThink, EarthDesk, TextExapnder, and iClip.

If a few of those sounded like what you’ve been looking for, and $49 doesn’t seem out of your price range, then you should definitely keep an eye out for when this bundle goes live.
