Mountain Lion updates for all editions of DEVONagent
Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), Aug 14, 2012 — DEVONtechnologies LLC updates its smart research assistant DEVONagent Pro as well as DEVONagent Express and Lite which add web search to your menu bar. The updates make the applications compatible to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, improves 64-bit support, add support for Sharing Services and Notification Center to DEVONagent Pro, and fix known issues.
Last week we have tamed the Mountain Lion with DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.4, this week it's the turn of DEVONagent to pass the Gatekeeper. That being not enough version 3.3 of DEVONagent Pro carries support for Notification Center and the new Sharing Services in its bag. Share found results with one click via iMessage, Mail, Twitter, Facebook, or Airdrop or add them to Safari’s Reading List. Notifications let you know when a lengthy search run is done.
If you're using the unique topics map, which graphically shows the most important topics from the search results and how they relate to each other, you will like that it now lists also combinations of three words if it makes sense. For further analysis you can export the topics as OPML and import the data into outlining or mind-mapping applications.
"f you're working in a team or found something exciting or helpful, then it's likely that you want or need to share your search results with others. DEVONagent Pro always allowed to you send results by email but with Mountain Lion you can now use all other supported services and social networks, too. And if this is not enough export the digest and the topics map in a variety of formats including OPML," mentions Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
DEVONagent Pro and Express 3.3 further improve the usage of 64-bit mode allowing you to collect result sets limited in size only by the amount of available RAM and the speed of the computer. We have revisited all Google plugins and added a new Google Scholar plugin that let's you search for legal opinions and journals. Use the improved Tube scanner to quickly filter for video material and use the updated pre-made Marketing search set as starting point to build your own search sets.
"DEVONagent Express brings the power of DEVONagent Pro to your menu bar and let's you search the web as simple as searching your computer with Spotlight. Google, Bing, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, even the Mac App Store, whatever you're looking for is just one click away," says Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann.
Finally, DEVONagent Pro and Express 3.3 are more compatible to websites using pseudo-anchors, and the updates improve TextExpander compatibility for all three editions. As always the updates fix known bugs and further boost the performance that our applications are well-known for. We recommend this update for all users with an Intel-based Mac running OS X 10.6.8 or later.
