Usually Apple World Today adds a list of remarkable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not be new, but they are popular and deserve mention. Here's the week's choice.
St. Clair Software has debuted Go64, a free app that helps Mac users prepare for the transition to MacOS 10.15 Catalina.
In the past year, Apple has prepared users to surpass 32-bit applications, which no longer start on MacOS 10.15, which is due this fall.
While users can use the built-in system information tool on their Macs to identify their 32-bit applications, the Go64 makes this process faster.
In addition, Go64 should scan 64-bit applications to ensure that they do not contain 32-bit plugins, frames, utilities, or services embedded within them. These additional bits of code can also show compatibility issues on Catalina, as it cannot be run either.
When Go64 identifies incompatible or potentially incompatible applications, it provides a number keys in the toolbar to speed up the search for compatibility and upgrade information. After selecting an app, users can launch it, reveal it in the Finder, move it to the Trash, visit the developer's website, or search the developer's website for more information. There is also a column to post some costs related to upgrading each app, so the Go64 can provide a continuous sum of the cost of making the entire system Catalina-ready.
Go64 requires MacOS 10.11 or higher. You can download it by clicking here.
4BitApps has launched Color Ray, a Mac app that allows anyone to visually enhance their images by combining artistic color effects such as black and white, sepia, sketch and oil painting.

Color Ray is priced at $ 4.99 and can be purchased from Mac App Store and from 64BitApps online. It requires MacOS 10.12 or later.
CogSci Apps Corp. has created Hook 1.0. The MacOS app (10.12.6 or later) allows users to access the information that is most relevant to their current task by allowing them to instantly connect other documents, projects, web pages, and more to their current open item.

The app, based on cognitive science, allows users to instantly create notes related to a document or other information element, and provides instant navigation between the two.
