Writing copy text that’s easy to read is, well, not easy. Especially Germans like me tend to build long nested sentences popup: true. Fortunately there are simple mechanical tools like, e.g., the Automated Readability Index popup: true. It counts the sentences, words, and letters in a text and returns an estimate on how difficult it is to read. The number it spits out correlates roughly to the US grade level. (mehr)
As the older among you may already know I cannot resist to sometimes post a nice comment we’ve received from a happy user. Last week the following message reached us:
Doing some work on an SMB server and we are having such difficulty finding anything. We tried bridge, even spotlighting the entire server. This is a Fortune 500 company and me and my boss gave up on IT and started using EasyFind. Just wanted to share my thanks and praise. We have started just saying, “Squirrel It” for short. Personally I would make a mini site off of “Squirrel It” but that’s just me. Thanks for your hard work. (mehr)
We love the Mac and the Mac user community. Quality freeware is one of our ways to say thank you for your long-standing support! Today we have updated the find-file utility EasyFind, our image converter and thumbnail generator ThumbsUp, as well as the customizable menulet XMenu with new localizations, adjustments for Mavericks, and bug fixes. Visit the Download page popup: true or use the apps’ built-in Check for Updates if available.
The Mac user and YouTuber Cliff Ghrigsby has just published a short video demonstrating how he uses EasyFind to quickly finding files that he couldn’t locate using Spotlight. That’s just what we had in mind when we wrote EasyFind. Watch his video here. popup: true
Spring is in the air on the northern hemisphere, which means: time for some spring cleaning here at DEVONtechnologies: DEVONsphere Express is still new on the App Store and we’ve already submitted the second update. Not enough, we’ve also updated all our other applications, too, from DEVONthink and DEVONnote to DEVONagent and our freeware apps.
It’s update season here at DEVONtechnologies — and you shouldn’t miss it! We have added new functionality and eye candy, made all apps faster and more reliable, and, of course, fixed dozens of bugs and glitches. And we have added a brand new freeware app: Grid!
If you want to take part in the financial market hysteria PhotoStickies can be of help: Find a good live ticket image you want to keep an eye on and open it as an image sticky in PhotoStickies. Now use some of the filters to make it transparent and move it to the background layer. Voilà. No more reason for staying calm just because you “don’t know”. (mehr)
Today we have released compatibility updates for DEVONnote, DEVONthink, EasyFind, and PhotoStickies that mainly fix compatibility issues on OS X 10.7 Lion. If you’re on Lion we highly recommend to install them.
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.
