Web Finds for July 7, 2017

Web Finds are from my web surfing travels. You’ll find some unique, informative, and some of the coolest websites and apps that you may have never known existed. Enjoy!

CheatSheet
CheatSheet is a free Mac app that displays an app’s keyboard shortcuts in an opaque pop-up in the vein of a Quick Look preview. Holding down the command key for a couple seconds brings up the entire list of shortcuts for the active application. While holding down the command key, you can click on commands with your mouse cursor to activate that command. If you want to learn all of the useful keyboard shortcuts to get the most out of your Applications, CheatSheet is what you’ve been looking for. It runs in the background without taking up menubar or dock space on your Mac.

AppCleaner
AppCleaner is a small Mac application which allows you to thoroughly uninstall unwanted apps. Installing an application distributes many files throughout your System using space of your Hard Drive unnecessarily. AppCleaner finds all these small files and safely deletes them.

Screenfloats
Use ScreenFloat for Mac to create floating screenshots that are always visible, no matter which application you’re in. This way, you don’t have to move or resize windows around to keep information visible on your screen. You can send shots created with ScreenFloat to any application that handles image files. I love this app.

Yoink
Yoink for Mac simplifies and improves drag and drop between windows, apps, spaces and fullscreen apps. When you start dragging files in Finder or content from an application, Yoink fades in a tiny window at the edge of your screen so you can drag to it. This frees up your mouse so you can comfortably navigate to the destination of the files and resume the drag from Yoink’s window more comfortably.
