Autumn updates for DEVONsphere Express, PhotoStickies, and XMenu
Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), October 30th, 2014. — DEVONtechnologies, LLC updates its smart desktop assistant DEVONsphere Express with performance improvements and fixes for OS X Yosemite. PhotoStickies 5.6.7 and XMenu 1.9.8 bring Yosemite adjustment and bug fixes, too. The updates are free and recommended for all users.
DEVONsphere Express provides users with relevant data while they're working on their Mac. Version 1.8 adds support for Finder and Open Meta tags, Scapple files, and diagnostic reports. It also uses Open Graph properties of HTML pages and web pages to provide more accurate results.
On OS X Mavericks and later version 1.8 indexes email messages again. The update also reduces DEVONsphere Express' CPU usage and improves its performance and reliability.
PhotoStickies shows photos and web cams on the desktop. XMenu lets the user access documents, apps, and text snippets from the menu bar. Both new versions bring necessary changes for OS X Yosemite.
"DEVONsphere Express gives users contextually relevant information at any time without changing their workflow. And it finds that document with its extensive search language that didn't turn up in Spotlight. As a menu extra it stays out of the way but is always there when needed. When called it looks at what the user is working on and provides a focused wealth of information. Our unique AI technology, seamlessly integrated into the Mac environment," comments Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
