WriteRoom is a little strange.  It essentially turns your screen black and provides you with a writeroomdistraction-free space to write.  Once you’ve finished your writing, exit the WriteRoom and your text is copied to TextEdit for easy copying/pasting into your blog or email.  If you’re confused, don’t worry, I don’t get it either.

twitterrificTwitterrific is one of the most well known Twitter applications on the iPhone.  This version is a very simple desktop Twitter client with a clean, black interface that’s easy to use.  If you’re familiar with Twirl, you’ll find Twitterrific an easy substitute and possible long-term replacement.

TinyGrab is an application that allows you to quickly share screenshots taken on your Mac. tinygrabPressing  Command, Shift, and 4 brings up crosshairs to select the area you want to screenshot.  TinyGrap will upload the screenshot and return a URL so you can automatically share your picture via email, twitter, or IM.

The last included application, Mariner Write, will be unlocked for everyone once the download marinerwrite count reaches 500,000 bundles.  Mariner Write is a word processor with a simple interface to easily create word documents.  If you’re using the buggy Mac Office ’08, you’re going to want to spread the word as fast as possible.
