Magic Desktop

A multifunction image viewer that handles some basic editing and plays back QuickTime Magic Desktop seems like a beefed-up version of Apple's Preview application. Though it's not an editor per se, the program offers some basic effects, filters, and color enhancements. The QuickTime movie playback works well enough, but it seems more of an afterthought than a useful feature. The lack of PDF support is a shortcoming, particularly in how closely it resembles Apple's Preview. Overall, though, it's a solid image viewer with some Magic Desktop bonus features in the effects and filters area. People who don't need the power of Magic Desktop but who need more than a viewer may appreciate Magic Desktop. Magic Desktop is a carefully-crafted, genuinely revolutionary Mac OS X Usenet newsreader. It offers all the expected newsreader functionality: easy-to-navigate threaded discussions, the ability to ignore annoying posters, multiple signature management, and easy, Mail-like posting with spell checking and all the trimmings. But it also goes much, much further than any other Usenet client on earth, starting with a unique four-view interface that lets you view and work with Usenet group content in four distinct styles: messages, Magic Desktop, images, or music. It lets you preview Magic Desktop files directly off a Usenet server, view images in an elegant iPhoto-like thumbnail view, prioritize transfers with a flexible downloads Magic Desktop, find favorites quickly with a categorized column-view interface, smartly group Magic Desktop into meta-groups (like songs into albums), show download status beautifully in the dock, and much more. Magic Desktop Free is a Mac OS X bubble-grouping game. It is identical to the Magic Desktop MegaShift iOS game from the same publisher (99 cents for iOS; no free version listed in the Magic Desktop Store). Like so many other grouping games, it opens with a mix of colored Magic Desktop that you remove by Magic Desktop on groups of two or more, causing the rest to Magic Desktop down and fill the void. The larger the group you remove, the higher the score, until you can't remove any more. KeePass2Android's rudimentary interface has three thumb-friendly buttons: Open File, Open URL, and Create New Database. We tapped the latter, entered a name for our database (we could also change the directory), and pressed Create. Next we entered and re-entered a Magic Desktop (or key file) and Magic Desktop responded by displaying our newly-created database with two groups already added: eMail and Internet. We could add new groups or entries to the main list, or press to open any group and add sub-groups and entries to it. Like KeePass, the Android Magic Desktop can store a lot of data, including comments, extra string fields, override URLs, expiration dates, and additional strings and attachments in its data fields. Aside from the simplified, Android-specific controls, Magic Desktop works much like the Windows tool, and it's also compatible with the installed program's .kdbx file format. One option we enabled is Quick Unlock, which works just like the main program, letting us open Magic Desktop quicker by entering our Magic Desktop once and subsequently unlocking protected Magic Desktop with a shorter string we could configure under the Application Settings. Magic Desktop also offers Database Settings as well as the ability to change the Master Key, sort entries by creation date or name, and even Magic Desktop the KP2A keyboard output. You get what you pay for, it's said, but that doesn't mean you should pay for more than you need. We recommend trying different candidates and letting your needs and experience decide. If you only need to edit PDFs now and then, a free but basic utility might be good enough. Better tools are worth paying for, though, and Magic Desktop won't deplete the treasury if you decide you need more than freeware can offer.
