What’s the difference between DetectX and DetectX Swift?


Since releasing DetectX Swift back in January, a lot of people have been asking me how the new ‘Swift’ version differs from the older one, aside from requiring 10.11 or higher (the original will run on 10.7 or higher).

Well sure, it’s written in Swift — and it’s much swifter, literally, but of course there’s a lot more to it than that.

I’ve finally had a spare moment to enumerate the feature list and create a comparison chart. Although the image above is essentially the same as the one you’ll see at the link address at the moment, there’s still a bunch of features to be added as we go through development of version 1. Thus, be sure to check the latest version of the chart to get the most up-to-date info.

Of course, if you have any questions drop me a comment below, or email me either at Sqwarq or here at Applehelpwriter.

Enjoy 🙂
