Bookshelves on your desktop…it’s sexy!

I love cool apps for my Mac.  I found this one today on my favorite website and thought I’d pass it along because it’s only $5 and it’s called Desktop Shelves.

Desktop Shelves is normally a $15 app so this is a really good deal.  The app takes all your documents, pictures, or whatever you’d like and lets you drag and drop them on a “shelf” that is on your desktop.  This is no mere wallpaper and you shuffle everything over it and pretend there’s a shelf.  No, no, no.  This is an actual shelf, equipped with cover-flow style browsing and sorting.  Previews of documents and pictures and all.  So I love it.  I think you will, too.  Check it out by following the link below if you think you’re interested.  You can also watch this quick video to see how simple it is to use.  I don’t get paid anything if you buy it.  But I do get brownie points so go check it out!

You can follow this link to take you to get the app…but you better hurry because I think today is the last day to get it.  It said the offer expires in 11 hours when I got mine.  And let me know if you like it or get it!  I’d like to know if you like my recommendations here.

Facebook Gains “Save For Later” New Feature…

I found about a cool new feature coming to Facebook in the next day or so.  According to iMore.com, Facebook has added a new feature to the Facebook for iPhone and iPad app that allows you to save posts for later. In reality, this works similar to what other services call “favorites”. If you browse the Saved posts, you are able to scroll through them later as their own feed. You have to physically mark them as Unsave to remove them from the Saved folder.

To save a post. Simply hold your finger down on the post you want to save and a popup that says “Save” will appear. Just tap the popup and you’re done!

To access your Saved folder, you must first scroll to the bottom of the sidebar menu and tap on Edit Favorites. Next, tap the + sign and select Saved from your list of Apps. Then tap Done. Now, you should see your Saved folder in the Favorites section of your sidebar menu!

All saved stories are private, so you don’t have to worry about somebody being notified that you saved their relationship change to Single. You wouldn’t want them to think you’re some weird creepy stalker!

You do not need to download an update to receive this feature. You should see a notification informing you of the feature at the top of your news feed when you use the Facebook app on your iPhone.  I don’t see this feature on my iDevices yet, but it is supposed to roll out tomorrow or Wednesday.  What do you think?  Do you think you’ll use the “Save For Later” Feature?
