WWDC: get it for free (OSXClock)
Apple’s WWDC 2016 conference is about to start. Is it the end of OSX? Rumours are widespread that the venerable old operating system is about to change its name to macOS.
Right or wrong, commiserate or celebrate, we thought we’d mark the occasion by giving away free copies of the full-paid version of our OSXClock.app.
The offer is already up and live and will continue to be available until WWDC 2016 closes on the 17th.
We’ve also just released an update to OSXClock yesterday adding world time zones, so there’s no better time to take advantage of this giveaway.
DetectX v.2.22 released
We’re now up to v2.22 of DetectX.
The major change is that we’ve moved to a generous 60-day trial period for non-license holders. Prices for home use and commercial use remain at $15 & $79.99, respectively, as promised for the remainder of v2 releases.
Heads up though, folks. DetectX 3 is nudging over the horizon (we’ve been working on it since late last year and only need to get the next FastTasks update out of the way first!) and the price of both home and commercial license keys is expected to rise for unregistered users. DetectX 3 will bring a modern UI interface and a whole new suite of tools intended to make it the most powerful tool on the market for analysing and troubleshooting you mac. If you hold a license key for any version of DetectX 2 prior to the release of version 3, you’ll get a free upgrade to DetectX 3.
The release notes for DetectX 2.22 can be found here.
news: sqwarq app updates
ust a quick post to let y’all know of a couple of updates to my apps.
1. OSXClock v1.8 has got a few new features including a handy ghost mode and variable transparency. Even better, I’ve removed the time-limit on the demo version, so you can now use OSXClock for free indefinitely (well, if that’s not an excuse to download it I don’t know what is… 🙂 ).
2. DetectX v1.21 now has the ability to trash files found in the search. I didn’t really want to add this, but so many users were having problems finding the invisible files belonging to MacKeeper I didn’t really have much choice. Note that the “Trash” function may require entering an admin password for each and every file that is outside of the user domain. DetectX is, of course, free to download and use, though donations are appreciated if you find it useful.
3. App Fixer is now out of beta and into first public release, version 1.0. Along the way it’s added a couple of extra fixes for Safari browser hijacks.
