    A Dream Catcher is a native American term for a device that keeps bad dreams away while allowing good dreams through.

    It’s 67% off in the App Store during this ZOT!


    Get either App for .99 during this ZOT!

    These apps help people of all ages record their dreams in writing, orally, and even by drawing. Where this technology exceeds a paper notebook is that the apps allow people to see trends in their dreams. For example, what dreams have this person or that place.

    Understanding our dreams is a healthy activity in one’s life. Most of us have dreams every night, yet have difficulty remembering them. The trick is to wake up and immediately try to connect with the dream. THEN WRITE IT OR RECORD IT - just a few notes will do. Most dreams are forgotten in five minutes. So, have your iDevice by your bedside and just be ready and open. Even people who remember their dreams have some difficulty noting trends and dream associations. This is where these apps truly help.

    DreamCatching includes two built-in Books with instructions and resources. Our website includes this information as well as links to appropriate organizations.

    The apps support English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Greek, Portuguese and Russian. Please forgive my poor translations and send me corrections where necessary. Note that the in-app books are in English only.

    For more information, please visit our website.

    The word dream stems from the Middle English word, dreme which means “joy and music.”

    A powerful, reliable word processor, and a long time favorite with writers and scholars, for long document writing.

    Normally: $39.00

    ZOT Price: $19.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    Mellel is a powerful and reliable word processor for people who are serious about writing. Mellel was designed to allow you to create long and sophisticated documents – from a book to a dissertation… or just a letter to your aunt (she’s on Facebook, though).

    Do not let Mellel’s speedy launch, nimble performance, or humble footprint mislead you – there are no bells and whistles, but there is power. In fact, we’ll openly claim: Mellel is the most powerful word processor for the Mac OS.

    Your documents should look the way you want them to look

    Looks matter, and Mellel has no competitors when it comes to controlling the way your document looks and creating consistent, predictable, and beautiful looking results.Consistency and predictability are the most important things when dealing with text and images.

    In Mellel, flexibility when setting columns or text does not come at the expense of of getting the results you want to get: Images with text flowing around them stay where you set them to stay, columns stay balanced, and headings don’t go strolling down the page just for fun. Looks matter, consistency matters even more.

    And stay in control. Get your documents in order, and keep them ordered

    As your document gets longer, it gets harder to keep all things in it in order. Mellel’s superb Outline feature is just the tool to achieve that. The outline pane gives you a bird’s eye view of your entire document, and lets you, tells you where you are, and lets you move things around easily.

    To streamline your document’s content, you can view elements such as captions for figures, tables, charts, and so on separately – and review them one by one.

    Another excellent streamlining tool is Mellel’s find: It allows you to create GREP-like searches, save them and create sets of Find Actions – allowing you to perform dozens of searches all at once.

    Headings are much more than you think

    Headings are easy, right? You just click the right style (in Mellel, the right auto-title) and there you have it.

    But with Mellel you can achieve so much more: you can set your title to look differently than its numbering, set which headings will be numbered and if they’ll reset the numbering, set headings to always appear at the top of the page, add a running header that changes dynamically, insert tabs and line breaks in a heading (but not in the ToC), set the content of the outline (to include just the title, for example), force appending body text to headings, and so on.

    With most of those, Mellel is the only word processor that allows you to do this automatically and reliably. You control how your document headings look, how the outline will look, how your Table of Contents will look, and so on. Once you’ve tried this with Mellel, it would be tough imagining how you could do without those up until now.

    Cite with ease and power

    Mellel offers you an easy way to handle citations and bibliographies, keeping them always in check, and preventing this delicate task from becoming tangled and annoying.

    The Bibliography palette in Mellel allows you to view all the citations in the document, navigate to them, switch to a bibliography manager, scan, unscan, rescan, etc. Scanned and Unscanned citations in the text are highlighted, and you can open them and easily set special options (e.g., page numbers, omitting author or year).

    Finally, there’s the bibliography: You can use the preferences to set how it will appear in the document, move it around in the document, and otherwise manipulate it.

    General Features

    Mellel offers you a rich and advanced yet easy to use set of features for word processing. The following list highlights some of the features in Mellel.

  • Track Changes
  • Easy to use and powerful Outline pane
  • Outstanding Bibiliography and citation support
  • Tables
  • Sort
  • Bulleted and numbered lists
  • Advanced Find and Replace
  • Advanced Hyphenation
  • Advanced multi-lingual support
  • Cross reference
  • Columns and sections
  • MS Word import and export
  • RTF import and export
  • Insert special characters
  • Live document statistics (word count)
  • Image placing and resizing
  • Document setup and info
  • Outline and Document navigation
  • Full screen mode
  • Smart Quotes (Typographer’s Quotes)
  • Writing the great American novel? Or just a small one? A scholarly book? A complex document? A play? A technical guide? Mellel offers special tools to help you write and organise long documents easily

    Multilingual Support

    If you need multilingual support or are writing bi-directional text, Mellel is just the thing for you. Arabic, Persian, Hebrew and Syriac never looked better on a Mac

    If “none of the above” is what you need, Mellel is still the right choice: reliable, time-tested, clean, and stable.

    Notes from the developer -
    “Your copy of Mellel from macZOT is a permanent license with free unlimited updates. For example: People who bought Mellel via MacZot in June 2008, and in 2009 ALSO got a permanent license. Essentially, the deal with Mellel is simple: You get an application on par, or better, than MS Word, for a fraction of the price MS Word costs. The reason for that is also simple: Because we think word processors are basic, essential tools and they should be affordable.”


    Ori Redler

    System Requirements: Mellel 2.9.1 is compatible with Mac OS 10.5 or later. It will not run on Mac OS 10.4.x or earlier.

    Dejal BlogAssist

    Easy HTML markup for blogs and more.

    ZOT Price: $7.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    BlogAssist is a handy tool to help weblog and website editing by making HTML markup easier.

    There are three easy ways to use it: you can use whichever one you prefer, or all three as desired.

    1. The System Menu: BlogAssist adds a small menu to the right-hand side of the menubar in all applications. You can simply select and copy some text into the clipboard, choose a suitable operation from the menu, then paste the result in the desired location. The text will have been transformed like magic. For example, copying hey and choosing Bold will result in <b>hey</b> – the HTML tags for boldface text, wrapped around the original text.
    2. The Services Menu: BlogAssist also appears in the Services menu, available in most applications. This is really easy to use: just select some text and hit Cmd-< to display a small panel. Simply choose an operation and click OK to drop the marked up text back into your document. The previously copied text also appears in the panel; useful for operations like Web Link that use two values. Copy a URL, select text to use as the link label, hit Cmd-< and choose the operation, then click OK, and you have a web link nicely formatted and inserted.
    3. The Floating Window: This is similar to the Services menu panel, but can be left open as long as you like. It floats above all other windows, always available. It can be hidden and shown via the BlogAssist system menu. With the floating window displayed, you simply drag text to one or both of its Value fields, choose an operation from the included pop-up menu, then drag the formatted HTML from the Result field. Like the Services panel, this window includes a convenient preview of how the HTML will be rendered in a web page.

    BlogAssist comes with several useful operations, including web and e-mail links, bold/italics/strikethrough/etc, LiveJournal tags, and more. But you aren’t limited to those — you can add, change, or remove them via the Operations Preferences.

    Requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
