Path Finder 8 review

Path Finder 8 is the new version of the Finder replacement Cocoatech first released many, many years ago. The major big new thing in version 8 is modules and the way they are organised and used. Everything else in this release is related to modules. Doesn’t that sound disappointing? Well, it did to me and if it did to you as well, read on, because it really doesn’t.

Snagit 2018 recognises text and objects you can move in your screenshots

Screen captures are often a necessity for use with presentations, magazine articles, and tutorials. The ability to create them comes with your operating system, but TechSmith’s Snagit offers a lot more flexibility and adds the ability to create short videos of your screen as well. Its latest version adds the ability to grab and recognise text, while Smart Move lets you move elements on screen that can be considered to be independent screen components.

OWC’s blazingly fast portable drive for pros, the Envoy Pro EX VE

OWC’s portable drive, the Envoy Pro, originally came in a USB 3 version, but with the push for ever higher throughput speeds required for 4K, HDR and 8K video shooting and streaming, the company has introduced another, new 300g lightweight Envoy Pro EX that’s been equipped with a captive Thunderbolt 3 cable. The Thunderbolt 3 Envoy Pro EX actually is a series of devices, all equipped with Thunderbolt 3, but split up in the Envoy Pro EX series and the Envoy Pro EX (VE) series, which is even faster and has bigger capacities.

CalDigit TS3 Plus Thunderbolt 3 Station Review

All-in-one computers like the iMac – even the iMac Pro – rarely have enough ports to satisfy our needs. CalDigit’s small-footprint, cast-aluminium Thunderbolt Station 3 Plus is – what we usually call – a dock that adds a whopping 15 ports to any Thunderbolt 3 machine. The options go beyond the conventional, expanding connectivity as well as charge laptops.

ChronoAgent synchronise your Mac and/or access files remotely with your iPad/iPhone

When I reviewed ChronoSync earlier this year, I saw another app on the Econ Technologies website that puzzled me. It's a small app – more a Preference panel than an app – that allows you to remotely access a Mac from anywhere in the world. It's quite powerful, secure (encrypted traffic) and is a boon …

Scrivener 3.0, the more modern, more powerful long-text editor

Scrivener must be the Mac's best selling text editor for writing anything from blog posts to 800-page novels. I reviewed version 2 some seven years ago, with the app only having been point-updated in those years. Last week, however, Literature & Latte, the developers of Scrivener, decided the time had come to upgrade Scrivener to …

DeltaWalker 2.3.2 review

I reviewed DeltaWalker 1.0 over a decade ago. Back then, it was the only application on macOS that could find file content differences and differences between folders. Today, it's not the only app anymore, with BBEdit capable of comparing files and folders and Path Finder 7 doing the same with files and folders. So, why would you still consider DeltaWalker then? For starters, because it supports 3-way comparisons and also because it can find differences between files, regardless of their format or content.

The BBEdit 12 Review

The golden oldie for anyone involved in text editing, HTML and CSS coding and yes, MarkDown, has been upgraded with new and improved features once again. BBEdit 12, the oldest and best all-round text editor on the market has reached its 12th generation. Twelve is a magic number and that’s a good description of this new version too.
