Printworks 2, an enhanced all-purpose publishing app for Mac, is out!

BeLight Software released Printworks 2, an all-purpose page layout and desktop publishing app for the Mac. Printworks 2 brings a great variety of new features, including new publishing tools, stylish interface, improved program performance, a collection of heading presets and much more.

Printworks is a versatile app that can satisfy all the desktop publisher’s needs. Not only does it provide templates and layouts for such common desktop publishing documents as brochures and flyers, but also gives an opportunity to easily create CD and mailing labels, envelopes, business cards and much more.

Apart from pre-designed and blank project templates for different document types, Printworks delivers specific tools and capabilities for each type of document (contact import for labels, track info import for discs, direct-to-disc printing support).

New in Version 2
Design and Layout

Spread Mode
Spread Mode allows a user to view and edit two pages simultaneously on the same sheet. It is useful when creating newsletters, magazines and other types of documents in which common design elements on the spread are used.

Customizable Grid
A customizable grid helps enhance the accuracy of work by conveniently setting the horizontal and vertical grid spacing.

Improved Text Box Linking
Text box linking has evolved in version 2 by allowing the linking of existing text boxes or breaking the links between them.

Pixel and Pica Measurements
Printworks 2 enables work with pixel and pica units. Pixels are useful when working with web banners and social network images, while picas are widely used by designers and in typography.

Easier Layer Management
Layer management was moved to the Inspector, which is much more convenient than the drop-down menu.

Style and Performance

Optimized for macOS High Sierra
Printworks 2 is fully compatible with macOS High Sierra.

Interface Enhancements
The user interface has become more stylish and intuitive! Check out the new tabs in the Inspector and the state-of-the-art icons on the toolbar.

Support for Touch Bar
Printworks 2 enhances the keyboard experience for those owning a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

Significantly Improved Performance
Program performance has been significantly improved, allowing the user to edit large, multi-page documents smoothly and efficiently.

Useful Add-ons

Artistic Headings
A collection of 2D and 3D artistic heading presets guarantees that documents will stand out. Each and every heading preset was carefully created by a professional designer who selected the textures and shapes.

New Templates
New professionally designed templates were added to be used as a starting point when creating documents.

Art Text 3 Integration
Integration with Art Text 3  helps unleash user’s creativity by providing the opportunity to create own text effects and artistic lettering with Art Text and use them in the Printworks document (requires the purchase of Art Text 3).

Google Maps Integration
Make sure your clients can always find you. Include a street map with driving directions in your brochure or flyer. You can even add high-resolution satellite imagery of your area for advanced navigation.

Integration with Depositphotos
Depositphotos integration provides access to one of the largest picture banks with more than 60 million pictures that can be added to the document with just one click. It is possible to buy single pictures or get a subscription. For demo purposes, a user can download pictures with a watermark right into Printworks 2.

Pricing and Availability

Printworks 2 is available directly on BeLight Software website and on the Mac App Store for $29.99. Previous versions users can buy an upgrade for $19.99 on BeLight Software website.

Prescription medications provided at discount prices.

A few years ago, I worked with a nonprofit organization that helped to provide people who were uninsured or underinsured with affordable health care options. It was part of their mission to ensure that all people had access to health care. In our area, we have a few options for organizations that offer options for low-cost or even free doctor visits and treatments. One thing these organizations cannot help with though is the cost of prescription medication. I myself have been without prescription insurance in the past and I can say that it’s frustrating to need medicine to help you feel better and not be able to afford it. Fortunately, there are programs, like Good RX, available to fill the gap between insured and those who need financial assistance for treatment.

Good RX is an amazing program that provides users with discounts and coupons for prescription medications. You can use their service free of charge and don’t even have to set-up a user account to take advantage of the discounts they offer. They do have an account set-up option, which will give you, even more, options as a user, but it’s an optional feature and not required to search their databases.

Good RX states that with some medications, users can save up to 80% off of the list prices (I personally typically save around 40%). The best part about Good RX is that you don’t have to print anything out to use it. You can keep the app on your phone, search for a medication when you go to the pharmacy, and then show your phone to the pharmacist to receive the discount. They will input the code in their computer/register and you reap the benefits!

In addition to the discount feature of the service, Good RX also gives you an option to compare prices between pharmacies. It’s sort of like Gas Buddy for medicine. You are given a list of pharmacies and the prices they are offering the medication for so that you can make an educated decision about where to get your medicine from.

When you first start up the app, you will see a screen with a simple search field in the center. There is also a Settings menu (indicated by a ‘gear’ icon in the corner) that allows you to connect the app to a registered account if you choose to make one. When you tap in the search to enter your medication, a list of most recent searches will appear beneath it along with some suggested searches including Browse Popular Drugs, Find Drugs by Condition, and Identify a Pill. Once you enter a drug name, you will be asked to select the form, dosage, and quantity. The app uses Location Services to locate pharmacies close to you offer the medication and it shows the prices they currently offer it for. From here you select a pharmacy option and the coupon information will appear on the screen.

Good RX is an exceptional option for finding prescription medications at an affordable price. I was faced with using this app recently when I had to fill a prescription for our dog who was obviously not on my insurance plan. The medication was offered at a discount and it ended up saving us more than 50% on that medication. The list price was well over $70 and I paid less than $30 for it. Good RX can be used anytime you are faced with purchasing a medication at list price. This means that even if you have insurance, you can opt to use the discounted price from Good RX if it’s a better option. You can also use Good RX through their website, which is listed below.

Update to iOS app adds augmented reality to features.

With the release of iOS 11, Sky Guide 6.5 adds an exciting new feature: augmented reality! You’ve been so patient and Sky Guide AR is here, at last!

Finding stars, constellations, and planets is easier than ever thanks to augmented reality. To activate it, first tap the center compass button to turn motion on. You will then see a new camera button appear which toggles AR mode.

Some tips for getting the best results from AR mode:
Augmented reality mode works great under a blue, daytime sky, but it has also been designed to function under a twilight and even nighttime sky. When your surroundings are very dark, you may notice some ghost-like trails behind moving objects. This is normal behavior due to the longer camera exposures needed.

Sky Guide automatically tries to adjust the blending of the augmented reality constellations with your real sky but if the constellations are not appearing quite right (if they appear noisy or patchy), you can use a two-finger up/down gesture to fine-tune the blending point.

Sometimes real objects and their corresponding augmented objects are not perfectly aligned. We first recommend giving the compass a few moments to settle in. If things are still not lined up, use a touch and hold gesture to activate the Compass Correction option. Then drag left or right to offset the augmented object until it is aligned with the real object. Sky Guide will retain this offset preference for your current session.

Also in this release, for those with a new iPad Pro: Sky Guide now supports 120 frames per second (requires iOS 11).
