Last Week's Top Downloads

Every week, we share a number of downloads for all platforms to help you get things done. Here were the top downloads from last week.


The Blood-Pumping Desktop

Reader McTarkus submitted this beating heart desktop to our Desktop Showcase, and in animated form, we can’t help but show it to the world. Here’s how he made it, and how you can make it too.


How To Type Accented Characters

If you have to Google/copy/paste every time you want to type a word with an accented character, we have good news for you: There’s an easier way. Read on for the fastest way to type these letters on Mac, Windows and Linux.


The Hulking Robot Desktop

Giacomo’s Windows 10 desktop doesn’t have a ton of skins or moving parts, but combined with that wallpaper it’s pretty dramatic. Here’s how he set it all up, and how you can too.


Pomodoro Time Is A Super Simple Timer That Lives In The Menu Bar

Mac: There are plenty of Pomodoro timers to choose from but I like apps that disappear when you don’t need them — and are a single click away when you do. With that in mind, Pomodoro Time lets you time your tasks and manage your to-do list right in your menu bar.


The Faded Getaway Desktop

Good wallpaper, faded app launcher in the corner, and a visualizer. Reader Ciysco’s desktop looks sharp and we love it. Here’s how you can make it your own.


The Drops Of Clarity Desktop

Reader ravenclawwit is no stranger to our featured desktop series, and submitted this beautiful setup to our Desktop Showcase a few weeks ago. It looks great, from top to bottom, and is pretty heavily personalised. It also has a little secret.


The Alfred Emoji Pack Makes Searching For Emoji On A Mac Less Painful

Mac: The newest version of Alfred introduced improved text expansion. The cool thing is you can easily download packs from other people to implement them in Alfred. Joel Califa created a series of auto expansion rules and searches that makes finding and adding emoji a ton easier.


The Departure Songs Desktop

We’ve seen some simple desktops and some busy ones, but this one from reader Peregerine, walks the line pretty well. It keeps a lot of the space in the center clear so you have plenty of room to work, but also adds some widgets and tools around the periphery that are useful and informative.


Hemingboard For Mac Instantly Suggests Synonyms, Puns And Rhymes 

Mac: Hemingboard began as an iOS keyboard that works like an amped-up thesaurus, not only suggesting synonyms to whatever you’re typing, but also rhymes and similar-sounding words that you can use as puns. Now they have brought their wordplay weaponry to your desktop.
