A few months ago back in January, Apple launched the Mac App Store. To keep track of all the cool new apps that were launching, I started the Mac Apps That Rock blog. Since then, Mac Apps That Rock has been a wonderful success. It’s now home to 150 apps, has over 450 followers on Tumblr, and has over 1000 subscribers via RSS. Today, I’m taking it to a whole new level, with the launch of Mac Apps That Rock 2.0.An All New Design
The first thing you’ll notice about the new Mac Apps That Rock is the all new design. While the previous site used a stock Tumblr theme, the new site features a custom theme that I built from scratch. Notice the CSS3 download buttons, which take you right to the Mac App Store. Try clicking on the Categories in the sidebar. Navigation has been streamlined, too: at the bottom of each page is an easy to click “more” button. Looking for great Mac apps is now more enjoyable than ever.Search
You may have noticed the search box in the top right corner of the new redesign. That’s right, you can finally search Mac Apps That Rock. Thanks to Google Custom Search, you’ll get your familiar list of ten blue links. And best of all, the page doesn’t even need to refresh with each query.Social Media
Before MATR 2.0, you had to either follow it on Tumblr or subscribe to the RSS feed. Now, you can find MATR on both Twitter and Facebook:
It’s easier than ever to keep up with the amazing new apps coming to the Mac platform.
Mac Apps That Rock 2.0. I think you’ll really like it.
