Introducing the New Mac App to Download and Watch Youtube Audio and Video Files

Introducing the New Mac App to Download and Watch Youtube Audio and Video Files

Mac is making it easier for us to watch quality video, offering us all the means necessary in order to have a great viewing experience. A great innovation from Apple, is the retina display which allows you to view anything displayed on the Mac screen, perfectly from every angle. Apple reduced the reflective surface by removing the front glass and by adding a thick anti-reflective coating. With improved features such as better color accuracy through its 14.7 million pixels and contrast ratio, the 27 inch diagonal offers everything the user needs for a complete visual experience.

A Bit About Your Favorite Tunes

YouTube is the world’s most popular online video site, and throughout time, it started becoming more intuitive to user’s needs, including and improving the user’s possibility to make playlists and save videos for later, create and personalize their own channel, but it forgot about mobility. The YouTube phone app works great on your phone, the only downside being that it can’t run in the background, allowing you to use your phone freely while listening to your favorite tunes.

Having your playlists or favorite videos to listen to or share with your friends no matter the place or time could always come in handy. The same as being able to listen on your Mac or iPod to the songs that maybe you can’t find on iTunes. You and me both know that when you’re absolutely crazy about a song you try to get it no matter what, searching through tens of sites that would allow you to purchase and download the track.

Nowadays we are used to ease of access to content and we expect to get it no matter where we are, that’s why when we end up with no Wi-Fi at a cafe or in any place for that matter, we feel disappointed.

3 Reasons Why You’d Want to Take Your Video and Audio With You On Your Mac

Here they are. Although feel free to add your own.

1. Slow Wi-Fi Connection

We all know how annoying it is to experience a slow Wi-Fi connection while you’re out and have your laptop with you. The video stops every couple of seconds to load and your whole experience becomes a blur of interrupted sound.

2. Ease of Access

If you have no internet connection, you can still listen to your favorite tunes or watch your favorite vlogs or videos by taking them with you from home.

3. Look Better Prepared

Demonstrations and quality guarantee during presentations by avoiding any loading interruptions caused by slow Internet connection or maybe lack of access because of the place’s Wi-Fi connectivity settings

There are a lot of apps that allow you to download YouTube songs or videos but as you know, they usually miss that little something that makes them re-usable, or they are simply not that Mac friendly. Recently, I discovered an app called FLVTO. It is really easy to download and is very user friendly with a familiar interface for all mac users. The app exports automatically to my iTunes list everything that I download, saving me the time spent with browsing through folders .

The other reason why this app has the edge over the others in that it’s not only YouTube you can download videos and songs from, but also other sites such as Vimeo, Daily Motion, Metacafe, Facebook etc. offering you a high download quality and a wide variety of sources to choose from where you get your content. It’s really easy to install and use so let me show you how to get your music faster. You can use FLVTO online or download the app and install it on the computer.

On www.flvto.biz, press the Download button to download the converter installation kit on your Mac. Run the Exe file and allow it to start installing. Once the wizard pops up you follow its steps. You can take a look at the FLVTO installation guide for a better idea of how the process looks.

Once installation is done, you are free to explore the application and enjoy it. Here you can find a more detailed way of use for Mac users that guides you through the first time you will use the app.

Takeaways

No matter the platform we use, at one point there’s always something we would like to share or have to show when it pops up in a discussion. FLVTO is an easy to use application that helps you get your favorite music and videos at their highest quality for you to enjoy on your Mac or PC. Whether you have Mac, Windows or Linux, the app works fluently and allows you to download content legally and free of charge.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
