DEVONagent Express and PhotoStickies Passed the Review

Finally, three weeks after we have posted version 3.0.3 of DEVONagent Express to Apple for review the new release is finally available in the Mac App Store. You can download it through the App Store app (which sounds a bit like a hiccup, BTW).  And PhotoStickies has made it, too. That means that our first freeware application for the Mac ever released now also made the jump. Click here to get it.

EasyFind and XMenu Updated

Today we have updated EasyFind to version 4.7.2 and XMenu to 1.9.3. We have added minor new functions, e.g. the possibility to drag search results with modifier keys pressed to the Finder to move, copy, or alias them. EasyFind also copes better with encodings and shows its name in Services menu entries. XMenu can be added to the startup items from its preferences, now, too.

Updatemania @ DEVONtechnologies

Updates! We cannot get enough of them. And so we created a whole bunch of updates for you: DEVONthink, DEVONnote, DEVONthink To Go, EasyFind, and XMenu — with cool new features and tons of bug fixes. Especially when you're using DEVONthink To Go you will like what we have submitted to Apple today. It's not only much more robust, it also comes with voice and video notes now.

Bug fixes for DEVONthink To Go & Better Spotlight Integration

Just a quick note that we have today released version 2.0.6 of all editions of DEVONthink and of DEVONnote. The update fixes bugs, e.g. the 'Sync group missing' bug that affected only some Macs but not all of them. It also brings better integration with Spotlight and improves the overall performance. Use your applications' built-in update function or download the new versions on our Download page. (more)

Use the Services Menu

The Services menu is one of the most underestimated features of Mac OS X. It provides useful commands that work from within almost any application on the Mac without hacking them (unlike, say, contextual menu items which run inside another application's memory space and so can crash it). Both DEVONthink and DEVONagent provide useful commands which allow, e.g., to quickly clip selected text to your database, summarize text, or run a web search. In addition we provide useful Services menu plugins as freeware.

If you have this problem, please simply re-download EasyFind from our download page and replace your copy with the silently updated one.
