MacXDVD Pumps 4K into MacX YouTube Downloader- Download 4K at No.1 Speed

No Comments

Chengdu, China – MacXDVD Software, a leading multimedia solution provider, announced today the support for 4K videos in the company’s smash hit MacX YouTube Downloader. The 4K upgrade marks a significant industry milestone. It unlocks 4K movies & videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Vevo, Instagram, Liveleak, BBC, IMDb and 300 more other popular movie & music sites and lets UHD content reach users’ 4K home-theaters, mobile devices & computer set-ups at a 5X faster speed.

Designed with a purist approach for online videos download in mind, MacX YouTube Downloader has been synonymous with the most refined video download experience, with extended ability to free download any videos available online, ranging from SD, HD 1080P, 720P, Blu-ray, to 3D and VR 360 videos. Today, MacX YouTube Downloader has over 50 million users around the world, with its superfast speed and high reliability listed as the main driver behind the wave for its huge downloads. Beyond that, the program has been recognized as a “must-have” free HD video downloader by prominent sites like CNET, Techradar, and MacWorld.

Now its download performance and universal compatibility are further complemented by the support of 4K HEVCs, VP9, and H.264 videos. This enhancement combines the latest technology with MacXDVD’s many years of experience in downloading the high-quality video. A customized 4K download engine integrates MacX YouTube Downloader’s built-in multi-threading and batch downloading tech, to ensure smooth and reliable 4K UHD and 8K (8192×4320) video download even for low internet bandwidth.

The upgrade also breaks the barrier of current 4K video download speed, and increases to that was thought to be unachievable. The new industry speed record is now nearly 5 times faster than an average downloader. E.g., with the help of MacX YouTube Downloader, a full 4k music video will be saved offline to your devices in no more than 30 seconds. Since the Ultra HD formats are still very new, ongoing speed boost can be expected to further push the limits.

“Owners of devices like the latest iPhone, iPad, Macs and 4K TVs are eager to jump into 4K; MacX YouTube Downloader’s upgrade couldn’t be better timed,” said Jack Han, CEO of MacXDVD Software. “As we all know, UHD contents place an ever-growing data demand to stream the large volumes of 4K videos quickly and smoothly. But our unbeatable download speed and impeccable video quality break those limits. So everybody, let’s embrace the magic of 4K.”

Pricing and Availability
MacX YouTube Downloader 4.1.3 is free, safe and light. It works well with the latest macOS High Sierra, Sierra, El Capitan or earlier.

DEVONthink 2.9.17 updates web interface, searches PDF annotations

No Comments

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – DEVONtechnologies updates all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink for Mac with usability enhancements and bug fixes. Version 2.9.17 makes the web interface of DEVONthink Pro Office compatible again to current web browsers and improves importing email via drag-and-drop. It also adds support for tables created on iOS, facilitates cross-linking documents, and lets users search for PDF annotations and text entered into PDF forms. All four updates are free and recommended for all users.

DEVONthink is DEVONtechnologies’ document and information management solution for the Mac. It supports a large variety of file formats and stores them in a database enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI). Many document formats can be directly viewed and edited, PDFs annotated. DEVONnote is DEVONthink’s little sibling with a reduced feature set targeted at users with notetaking-centric needs.

Sophisticated organization tools, AI-based techniques that handle even the largest collections, and numerous integration options make DEVONthink the work environment of choice for researchers, lawyers, and educators. With its fast, reliable, and secure synchronization users keep their data available on all their Macs. DEVONthink To Go for iPad and iPhone completes the DEVONthink ecosystem.

* Keep your data together in one place

New in DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.9.17:
Version 2.9.17 brings an updated web interface for DEVONthink Pro Office which allows users access their data again with current web browsers on Macs and Windows PCs. Importing email messages via drag-and-drop skips already imported messages, and not yet downloaded messages don’t stop an email import anymore.

In addition, it’s now possible in all editions of DEVONthink to insert a cross-link to other documents or groups into plain text or Markdown documents from the contextual menu. The inserted item link is a robust URL that works even across platform boundaries when the database has been synced to another Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

PDF annotations and text entered into PDF forms are searchable now, audio files resume playback, and stylesheets can customize the colors of Markdown documents. Finally, version 2.9.17 features a URL command for initiating a search and adds compatibility to tables created with DEVONthink To Go 2.4 or later on iOS. The update also improves the overall reliability and fixes bugs.

AudioFile for iOS 1.0 – Find Your Voice Memos

No Comments

Houston, Texas – Independent developer Stephen Morris today is proud to introduce AudioFile – Voice Memo Notes 1.0 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, his intuitive, easy-to-use audio recorder that features tags, notes, and more to help you find your voice memos and use them later.

AudioFile provides a number of ways for users to organize and augment their voice memos. In addition to a title, recordings have notes that can include both text and photos. Tags serve as attributes that help to identify a recording’s contents and surface it later on when searching. Projects allow users to group recordings that pertain to the same work. Users can also mark their favorite recordings, so that they can quickly browse only the most promising ones.

“I’m a (very amateur) musician, so I occasionally come up with a melody or chord progression that I want to remember,” said Morris. “I’d usually record it with the stock Voice Memos app, but too often it would just become New Recording 47, get buried in the app, and I’d forget about it. AudioFile was my attempt to solve that problem.”

Recording is as easy as the tap of a button. Users can import audio from other apps into AudioFile, and share their recordings through Messages, Mail, and more.

Whether you’re a musician, journalist, student, or just like to use voice memos, AudioFile can help you keep things organized, take informative notes, and make better use of your audio recordings.

Feature highlights:
* Quickly record voice memos
* Add notes with text and photos

Typinator 7.4 With Improved Quick Search and 30+ Further Enhancements

No Comments

Perg, Austria – January 16, 2018: Ergonis Software today announced Typinator 7.4, an improved version of their highly acclaimed text expander for macOS. Typinator’s primary use case is to type an abbreviation and get the expansion inserted into your document. But finding good, short, and still unique abbreviations can be a challenge, in particular when you have hundreds of similar items. Instead of inventing and remembering hundreds of abbreviations, Typinator’s Quick Search feature helps to find all items that match certain keywords or phrases. But until now, the list of matching items was limited to the height of the screen and therefore contained only the most relevant items. Typinator 7.4 removes this limitation and displays all matches in a scrollable list.

The new version now also works with text entered via Keyboard Viewer. With a long list of more than 30 further usability and compatibility improvements, version 7.4 is a must-have upgrade for every Typinator user. Visit Ergonis Software’s website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download and try the new version.

Typinator is a powerful, yet elegantly simple solution that boosts your productivity by automating the process of inserting frequently used text and auto-correcting typing errors. Across all applications, it detects specific sequences of typed characters and automatically replaces them with text snippets, graphics, URLs, dates and special characters.

System Requirements:
* Requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer
* Compatible with macOS High Sierra

Availability and Ordering:
Typinator 7.4 can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website. The upgrade to Typinator 7.4 is free for Typinator 7 license owners and for anyone who purchased a license for Typinator 6 in or after January 2016. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses. For information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, and upgrade pricing offers, see the company’s web site.

Babble-on Wants Trump to "Make American Apps Multilingual Again"

No Comments

San Francisco, California – Babble-on Inc., a leading app localization service for iOS, Android, and Windows applications, has vowed to return American apps to multilingual glory. The company is asking patriotic corporations and loyal indie developers to send their English app strings for translation into any of the world’s not-English languages, like Spanish, Japanese, or Canadian. Developers answering the call of duty will receive 10% off the first-time localization of their apps until February.

“If America is going to keep winning – and I think that’s exactly what the President aims to do – we have to put our USA apps into every home, hut, and hovel in the world,” says Benjamin Zadik, the company’s founder. He further warns that languages other than English are everywhere. “If American companies don’t get there first, China will.”

The San Francisco-based translation company specializes in translating iPhone apps into dozens of languages at a time, and has localized apps by Tinder, Under Armour, IDEO, and more in its 14-year history. But as the number of app developers in China outpaces domestic gains, entire apps might soon be available only in Chinese, according to at least one person with an ominous prediction.

To meet this challenge, Babble-on offers its service all over the world, even in places President Trump has described as “s***hole” countries, allowing those with less fortunate languages to translate their apps into standard American English. For example, Chinese app developers can have their applications translated into English, so they can be used like real apps by real people downloading from a real App Store in America.

While some have called for making all apps English-only, Babble-on’s team believes that America must lead the world by spreading the nation’s values and culture through its apps. Localization can significantly increase downloads and multiply revenue. It boosts customer loyalty and offers a key advantage over competing apps. It’s also a matter of respect for any app developer’s international user base.

“Nobody respects other languages more than President Trump,” adds Mr. Zadik. “He’s like a philological genius. Although I speak several languages myself, I can hardly understand him most of the time. He’s that lingual.”

Babble-on App Localization Service

Babble-on App Localization was founded in 2004 in San Francisco at a time when apps were still called software. It grew rapidly from a two-person, bilingual translation team to a team of 150+ native translators who work collectively on large multilingual projects in dozens of languages. What sets the company apart is that all translators work in their native language only, specialize in localization, and are all-around good human beings that use actual iPhones and screenshots for context. Even more revolutionary, the project manager is also a translator, and available to speak directly with the developer at all times – in several languages, if necessary. Babble-on is the localization company of choice for some of the hottest startups and large companies in Silicon Valley. Copyright (C) 2018 Babble-on App Localization. All Rights Reserved.

WaterField Holdall Helps Professionals Maintain Healthy Lifestyle

No Comments

San Francisco, California – WaterField Designs introduces the new Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall, a hybrid briefcase-fitness bag, designed to help professionals uphold Americans’ most popular New Year’s resolution: to get more exercise. One side of the Atlas Holdall features a padded MacBook and iPad compartment and organizational pockets for other work essentials; the other side boasts a spacious chamber for clothes and a collapsible, zippered space for shoes. The sophisticated carryall, packed daily for both work and workout, promotes healthy behaviors to improve work effectiveness and fitness in 2018.

Even though fewer than 40% of New Year’s resolutions survive the one-month mark, scientific research shows that it is possible to beat the discouraging odds. “Piggybacking” goals onto existing behaviors facilitates the creation of desirable new habits. The Atlas Holdall helps the fitness-minded professional create an enduring fitness habit by supporting two critical elements of successful habit building: the cue and reward.

Pre-packing work and exercise essentials in the Atlas Holdall each night facilitates the cue – professionals awaken with daily workout essentials ready-to-go. The convenience of carrying a single handsome, American-made bag that separates workout clothes from work gear provides the reward. Since regular exercise is linked to improved concentration, creativity, and mental stamina, the new exercise habits created by the Atlas Holdall will not only improve physical fitness, but will also enhance work performance.

“Now that I have everything I need for the office and for fitness training in my Atlas each day, I’ve created a no-excuse situation that makes it natural for me to exercise during or after work,” explained company owner Gary Waterfield. “I look forward to squeezing in a daily workout; afterwards, I get back to work feeling invigorated and ready to focus.”

The Atlas Holdall combines the best features of a professional briefcase and a fitness bag into one sleek design. In either classic, sturdy black ballistic nylon or rugged, tan, waxed canvas and premium full-grain leather accents, the Atlas Holdall looks as smart with a suit as it does with workout attire.

* A slim chamber, secured by dual waterproof zippers, serves as a briefcase. Inside, two built-in, padded sleeves protect an Apple laptop and an iPad, and additional pockets stow a power supply, cords, a pen or stylus, and other work necessities.
* Corner cut-outs on the laptop sleeve permit laptop charging while the device remains safely within.
*The TSA-friendly briefcase compartment opens flat so the MacBook remains protected inside while passing through TSA screening.
* A cavernous compartment, secured by dual waterproof zippers, stores clothing for exercise or for an overnight trip.
* A discrete, zippered, pouch separates shoes from apparel and work items in an interior pocket accessed from the outside. It recedes when not in use to maximize space.
* An exterior zippered front pocket holds quick-access items. Inside the exterior pocket, an Ultrasuede(R) iPhone pocket and a key fob make it easy to retrieve these items after a vigorous workout.
* An open-topped side pocket stores a water bottle.
* Gold rip-stop lining lights up the bag’s interior for improved visibility.
* Three carry options – dual leather-grip handles, a suspension shoulder strap, and a wheeled-suitcase handle pass-through – add to the Atlas Holdall’s versatility.

The Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall joins a full line of WaterField bags and cases that support Apple-enthusiast professionals in their daily lives. The Atlas is available exclusively from the WaterField Designs online store.

Weight and Dimensions:
* Canvas 3.4 lbs. Ballistic 3.1 lbs
* 16 x 10 x 8.5 inches
* Meets most airline personal carry-on-item size requirements

Pricing and Availability:
The Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall is priced at $429 (USD) and available in Black ballistic nylon with black or chocolate full-grain leather details. Tan waxed canvas with full-grain, chocolate leather details. Available for order now. Pre-launch production run sold out. Next production run ships February 2, 2018.

Keep It 1.2 Adds Icon View, Custom Note Styles, Improved Search and More

No Comments

Swansea, United Kingdom – January 15, 2018. Reinvented Software is pleased to announce Keep It 1.2, their notebook, scrapbook and organizer for macOS, which adds icon view, improved Files app support, custom styles for notes, and improvements to search, tag filtering, imports, and more. Keep It is the successor to Together, a brand new app that preserves the very best of its predecessor, but recast for today and the future.

Keep It is a notebook, scrapbook and organizer, ideal for writing notes, saving web links, organizing documents, and finding them again. Available on Mac, iPad and iPhone, Keep It is the destination for all those things you want to put somewhere, confident you will find them again later.

Keep It 1.2 adds icon view to show items as resizable thumbnails, and each list can be set to either use list or icon view. Keep It uses iCloud to make these thumbnails available to Keep It for iPad and iPhone, along with the Files app on iOS 11.

This version also adds custom styles for notes, so that combinations of fonts, paragraph settings and colors may be easily applied to text, and these styles are also made available across all Macs and iOS devices via iCloud.

It’s now possible to set a default import destination; a folder or bundle that can be used as an inbox for un-filed imports, which appears at the top of the list of folders and bundles in the sidebar with a special icon for convenience.

Keep It 1.2 makes improvements to search, so it’s now possible to negate individual search terms (e.g. to find items that have one tag, but not another) and choose what is searched when using free text. The Tag Filter can now be used to show untagged items, and animates on Mac as on iOS.

Other improvements include the ability to find text within PDFs, and save web pages either as web archives or PDFs, improvements to the appearance of various toolbar items and the Favorites Bar, and performance improvements when importing large numbers of files.


Like its predecessor Together, pretty much anything can be added to Keep It, including notes, web links, rich and plain text documents, PDFs, images, or any other kind of file, using drag and drop, its share extension, the Services menu, or a browser bookmarklet. Keep It can also create new files of any type from stationery, and uses iCloud to make everything available across your devices, and to share items with others.

Keep It has all the organization tools you could need, including folders, tags, colored labels, and bundles. Keep It stores everything you add as files in folders that you can access in the Finder on Mac or the Files app on iOS 11, and open in other apps for editing. Saving files to these folders will automatically add them.

Building on Together, just about everything in Keep It has been improved or streamlined to work consistently across Mac and iOS, while taking advantage of each platform’s unique strengths. Keep It’s innovative tag filter that can drill down through combinations of related tags, and works in conjunction with search, which offers suggestions and makes it easy to combine terms. Keep It’s Compact Mode reduces the app to a single column, ideal for using as a floating window, or alongside another full screen app in split view, as you would on iPad.

System Requirements:
* macOS 10.12 or later
* 64-bit processor
* 8.2 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Keep It for Mac 1.2 is available as a 15-day trial. A license for Keep It costs $49.99, and will include all Keep It Version 1.x updates. Together 3 users can purchase a $24.99 upgrade, or get a free copy if Together 3 was purchased during its final 6 months on sale. Keep It is also available on the Mac App Store, also with a free trial, and a choice of one-time purchases to buy Keep It, upgrade from Together, along with monthly or yearly subscriptions.

This list is also published on the Tabby Awards website where these category-leading apps and games can also be downloaded. This news release is intended to aggregate the iPhone/iPad award winners as a supplement to the prior Mobile App Awards and Mobile Game Awards releases.


With all iOS apps and games eligible and under consideration, winners were selected based on a combination of quantitative metrics and qualitative factors.

The analytical evaluation component focused on app store user review scores submitted over the course of 2017 to measure user engagement. The qualitative component – benefiting from the Tabby Awards expertise in judging app and game awards since 2012 – focused on user interface, design, and innovation. The degree of tablet-optimization was also a key factor in the assessment of iPad apps and games.


The Tabby Awards is the most comprehensive awards program honoring the best apps for tablets and iPads. Since 2012, it has held two separate competitions: one for consumer apps and games and one for business and professional apps. Starting in 2015, the Tabby Awards events expanded to include phone-optimized apps and games.

Please refer to TabbyAwards online for additional information regarding our mobile app award events.
