The best general purpose weather app

In our research for the best weather app, we found CARROT Weather to be the best overall weather app for iPhone and iPad.

MacStories: Pixelmator Pro announced »

Pixelmator has been a staple on my Macs for quite some time, which means I don’t have to worry about keeping an Adobe Photoshop subscription active for simple photo edits. So, like John Voorhees (MacStories), I’m pretty excited about the upcoming Pixelmator Pro. My favorite feature of Pixelmator is the fact that it completely replaces Photoshop for me. If Pixelmator Pro can improve on the original and offer more pro features, it will be an even more serious and cost-effective competitor to the lumbering Adobe product.
