Tweetbot for Mac

It looks like our absolute favorite iOS Twitter app, Tweetbot, will finally be making its way to the Mac. While praising the Retina display of the new MacBook Pro (it deserves that praise - check out our MacBook Pro with Retina display review!), Mark Jardine of Tapbots included an image of his notebook display, and Tweetbot is front and center in the shot. It's sorely needed, too. The official Twitter for Mac app hasn't been update since May 2011, while Tweetbot for iPhone and iPad are both constantly updated with a host of new features. If you've never given Tweetbot a try and you own an iPhone or iPad, we recommend checking it out.

Dropbox will give you 3 GB of extra free space to upload your photos and images

Dropbox photo upload free space

Dropbox has updated its Mac and Windows apps with the ability to upload photos and videos directly from cameras, smartphones, tablets, SD cards (pretty much anything that can capture photos or media,) directly to your Dropbox account. The feature has been in beta for a couple of months, and has now been rolled out to the masses.

Worried about all those extra pics taking up your storage space? Dropbox has you covered there as well. With the first image you upload, Dropbox will increase your storage by 500 MB. Then, for every additional 500 MB of photos and videos you upload, they'll grant you another 500 MB of space, up to a total 3 GB of extra storage. Even better, if you decide you no longer want your images in your Dropbox, simply delete them--you'll keep the extra 3 GB of space!

Download the latest version of Dropbox to get in on the action.

Amazon Mac Download Store

Following up on the Lady Gaga album sale earlier this week, Amazon continues their digital download battle against Apple with the launch of their own Mac app download store. They've got quite a variety of available titles (though, not as much as the Mac App Store of course,) which include big games like Civilization V, productivity suites like Microsoft Office, and a bunch of others. Right now they are offering Airport Mania for free, and your first paid download will be $5 off. We like it.
