The official Twitter for Mac app has just been updated to version 2.2.1 and includes support for Notification Center. Notification Center is now supported for incoming @replies and direct messages so you can more easily be informed on what your followers are tweeting you.

However, Designed by M aims to fix this issue with its new case: the AL13. The AL13 is a bumper-style case that
The folks at Realmac Software have pushed an update to its popular to-do app Clear. This update has been pushed to both iPhone and Mac users bringing them to version 1.2.2 and 1.0.1 respectively. The update is pretty minor, but it brings one much requested feature to the app: the ability to share lists via email. On the iPhone, simply shake your device while viewing a list to email it. On the Mac, the email option resides in the Actions menu. When you receive a Clear list via email, you will be able to open it on the Clear app
