Flowchart Designer 3
I'd been looking for a great way to create flowcharts, and I came across Flowchart Designer 3, which was just what I needed for some simple charts.

Plus it lets you save as a transparent PNG or PDF. I do wish it would let you save SVGs directly from the app though.

From the why the heck didn’t I think of that. This guy is selling time on a website that repeats daily and lets you promote something by the second of the day. You can buy several seconds and your ad will play on the site at that time everyday.
MD Block is probably not for everyone. It's a small script that lets you create a new tag in your HTML that you can use to insert internal or external markdown. For Markdown nerds like me, it makes it easier to write markdown inside an HTML document.
