We knew this was going to happen. Those who downloaded Messages when it was available in beta version for OS X Lion will have to consider their alternatives.
I think I have a new favorite ebook reader for OS X. That, my friends, is Ehon. It’s meant to be a digital comic book reader and it’s a good one, too, able to open comics in CBR and CBZ formats.
But Ehon also supports epub files and there are a number of reasons why it makes a great ebook reader.
Laptop and desktop computers are a great way to read comics. One of my favorite comic book readers for the Mac is Comical. Comical is free and it can read CBR and CBZ files and is available for OS X, Windows, and Linux. But there’s a catch.
Comical runs on older Macs running OS X 10.3 Panther (see screenshot above, from the developer’s website) and OS X 10.2 Jaguar.
I’ve used it on OS X 10.4 Tiger and OS X 10.5 Leopard. It should also run on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
Unfortunately for Comical fans using newer Macs, the app does not run on OS X 10.7 Lion 10.7 or OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It’s a pity because Comical is a mighty good comic book reader.
Download Comical for OS X 10.2 to 10.6:
Video Monkey is a free and easy-to-use video converter for OS X.
You can use it to convert video files from one format to another. You can use it to encode files into AVI, MP4, Quick Time, Flash, MPEG, and DV. Or you can use the presets that converts the video to the size and format of iPods, iPhones, and Apple TV.
