24U releases 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In 5.0 for FileMaker Pro 14

No Comments

Prague, Czech Republic – 24U Software today is proud to announce a major upgrade of 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In to enable FileMaker Pro 14 to display dynamically created professionally looking OS-native error messages, input dialogs, and progress bars in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes.

24U SimpleDialog Plug-In 5.0 has been rewritten to use the latest OS technologies and take the full advantage of the 64-bit architecture, so that it works well with FileMaker Pro 14 and the current and future versions of OS X and Windows. Other improvements include better performance and better stability when multiple copies of the plug-in are accidentally installed at the same time.

Major changes introduced in the version 5.0:
* Full compatibility with FileMaker Pro 14 in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes
* The dialog displaying and handling core updated to use the current OS technologies
* Resolved collision of multiple copies of the plug-in being installed

Other recent changes and new features:
* Full support for text styles in dialog fields (except for color on Windows)
* Dialogs can be updated on the fly without dismissing and re-displaying
* Conditional popup menus

About 64-bit architecture:
FileMaker Pro gained support for 64-bit architecture with the release of version 14. Users can choose whether to use FileMaker Pro 14 as 32-bit or 64-bit application. However, if plug-ins are used they must match the architecture of the FileMaker Pro application. It will take some time before all plug-ins are updated to support 64-bit architecture natively. So, if a user needs to use 32-bit plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 14 it is necessary to run FileMaker Pro in the 32-bit mode as well. On a Mac it is as easy as opening the Get Info dialog for the application and enable the option to run the app in 32-bit mode. On Windows the appropriate architecture needs to be chosen before installing the FileMaker Pro 14.

24U SimpleDialog Plug-In 5.0 addresses the need for different architectures by providing versions for both 32-bit and 64-bit environments, letting users use the version that suits better their actual needs depending on other circumstances.

About 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In:
24U SimpleDialog Plug-In allows FileMaker solutions to interact with users via professionally looking dialogs to provide excellent user experience with minimum development effort. Since its first release back in 2001 the plug-in has grown to a feature rich user interaction addition for FileMaker solutions, while still retaining its ease of use and offering syntax that’s as simple as the dialog it is supposed to display.

Most customers use 24U SimpleDialog primarily to save development time and provide better user experience in their solutions…

Vincenzo Menanno, director of FileMaker development at Beezwax, said at FileMaker DevCon 2014: “The biggest value that we get with SimpleDialog is creating solutions that look professional, keep the user informed, and provide us with a great solution for our clients. SimpleDialog is very easy to use and once we use it we use it over and over.”

Paul de Halle, CEO of Linear Blue says: “One of the reasons we really like the 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In is not just it’s ease of use but its added value to the solutions that we develop for our clients. It allows us to put a level of functionality in some systems, that would not be possible with anything else.”

System Requirements and Compatibility:
24U SimpleDialog Plug-in 5.0 requires Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or newer and FileMaker Pro 12 or newer. Recommended is Mac OS X 10.10 and FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced or newer.

Windows XP SP3 and FileMaker Pro 12 are minimum requirements for using the plug-in on the Windows platform. Windows 7 or newer and FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced or newer are recommended.

At least FileMaker Pro 14 is necessary to take advantage of the 64-bit architecture. Older versions of the plug-in are available for FileMaker Pro versions 4 through 11.

Pricing and Availability:
24U SimpleDialog Plug-In 5.0 is immediately available for download free of charge as a fully functional 14-days trial version, which can be activated after purchasing a license. Licenses for 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In start at $49 (USD) per user, volume discounts are available for 5 or more users. Existing customers can upgrade to the new version at 50 % off the regular prices if placing order within 14 days upon release, and 30 % off if buying later.

Pomodoro Time Pro 1.3 Time Management App Adds Apple Watch Support

No Comments

Odessa, Ukraine – XwaveSoft today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Pomodoro Time Pro 1.3, an important update to their powerful productivity tool developed specifically for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Pomodoro Time Pro incorporates the principles of the Pomodoro Technique(TM), which is a systematic approach to getting things done, helping to achieve a user’s set goals faster and more efficiently. Anyone can create tasks, configure breaks, and track their progress throughout the day, week or any custom time period. Progress can be tracked via an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or Mac – all devices are always in sync.

Pomodoro Time Pro 1.3 now supports the Apple Watch, making many of the same features users love about Pomodoro Time now available on their wrist. Any Apple Watch owner can now quickly view the Pomodoro timer information on their wrist, without the need to take their iPhone out of their pocket to view it. This makes keeping track of the time remaining much more efficient.

The basic five steps of the Pomodoro Technique are:
* Define the tasks that you’ll be working on
* Set the Pomodoro timer to X minutes (25 minutes by default)
* Start working and continue until the timer rings
* Take a short break (usually 3 to 5 minutes)
* After four Pomodoro alarms, take a longer break (15 to 30 minutes as a rule)

“Before Pomodoro Time Pro, users were forced to use a low-tech approach, using a mechanical timer, paper and pencil,” says XwaveSoft owner Denys Yevenko. “However, by making use of the Pomodoro Time Pro app, users can quickly enter their tasks, configure breaks, and track their progress with just a few simple taps and swipes on the screen of their iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch.”

Users can also track the time left, and take short breaks when notified to by the app. They can also track their tasks on their iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac, as Pomodoro Time Pro syncs all the information about tasks over all of their devices, making it easy to set goals and to keep track of their tasks, no matter which iOS device or Mac computer they’re currently using.

Customize to maximize productivity:
* Pomodoro duration
* Short break duration
* Long break duration
* Number of Pomodoro between long breaks
* Target number of Pomodoro per day

* Now supports Apple Watch
* Manage your tasks
* Track your progress throughout the day, week or custom period
* Fast and easy goal tracking
* Possibility to start/pause/skip the current Pomodoro
* Original ticking sound (optional)
* Custom alarm sound or vibration
* Alarms sound even if the app is in the background
* Interactive notifications
* Widget in the Notification Center
* Full synchronization between iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch and Mac
* One universal app for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

Using Pomodoro Time Pro 1.3 allows users to easily use the Pomodoro technique of getting things done, achieving their goals faster and more efficiently by breaking down tasks into timed periods of activity, followed by short breaks, helping users to power through distractions, gain better focus, and get things done in short periods of time, with frequent opportunities to pause and relax.

All it takes for travelers to enter the contest is to share a funny experience during a trip abroad where cross-cultural communication went horribly wrong. The “Lost in Translation, Found in a Dictionary” contest is open to all travelers who would like to share the hilarious and confusing situations that arose during their travels abroad due to a cross-cultural communication gap.

Slovoed talking dictionary apps aim to be the best way to avoid any confusing situations while traveling abroad, offering more than 180 dictionaries for over 35 world’s languages, available for in-app purchase.

Users will also experience great advanced search, learning and translation features.

“Entrants simply share with other travelers their trip abroad, and any humorous situations that occurred when they tried to communicate with the locals. Such as ordering what they thought would be a delicious dish, but it turned out to be a stomach-turning disaster,” says Paragon Software Group PR Director Katia Shabanova. “Or, how about the time they asked a local for directions to one location, but wound up at a completely different place? Tell us what happened next. Did everything turn out all right in the end?” Anyone who shares their tale of travel miscommunication with PSG will win a license for any of their Slovoed talking dictionary apps (available for 35 languages for Android, iOS, OS X, Windows PC).

The full text features in Slovoed talking dictionary apps allows users to look up words more efficiently throughout the whole dictionary, with content including headwords, idioms and usage examples. Wildcard search allows users who are unsure of the exact word spelling to use “?” and “*” symbols to replace the missing letters. The handy Morphology module allows anyone to translate words in any grammatical form (for German, English, French, Spanish and Russian dictionaries).

* Copy words or phrases from other apps to instantly look them up in the dictionary
* List of similar words in case of misspelling
* Search for anagrams, e.g. tab/bat
* Hyperlinks between articles and directions

Flash card quizzes allow users to add new words to flash cards, memorize them, and test their knowledge until they get it right. The app also includes a handy converter, allowing users to quickly understand foreign units of measure when traveling in a foreign country.

The “Lost in Translation, Found in a Dictionary” contest runs on Slovoed Language Universe’s Facebook page from May 28 to June 1, 2015.

Perg, Austria – Ergonis Software today releases PopChar X 7.1, an improved version of the company’s award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts. PopChar X 7.0 introduced the new shape finder, which lets you find special characters simply by drawing their shape. In the meanwhile, users and reviewers alike have already praised the shape finder as the best feature ever since the first release of PopChar nearly 30 years ago.

Version 7.1 offers extended support for the emoji characters, which are so popular today. When an emoji character is not available in the current font, it is now shown in the Apple Color Emoji font, which avoids empty cells in the PopChar table. Also, PopChar now shows the names of the Emoji skin tone characters.

The new version also highly improves the convenience of getting informed about and installing new versions. When a new version is available, you can now check the new features and enhancements before downloading the new version. The built-in installer has been adapted to new functions and appearance of Yosemite and helps with purchasing and updating licenses when the current license does not cover the new version.

PopChar X 7.1 finally adds many further improvements and enhancements that improve overall stability and compatibility with Yosemite and third-party applications like Filemaker. Visit Ergonis Software’s website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download a trial copy.

PopChar solves a problem faced by every technologist and multi-lingual worker. Inserting special characters into application documents can be frustrating and results in a steady loss of productivity. With PopChar, thousands of special characters are only a few clicks away. Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in your current document right away. Starting with PopChar 7, you can even find special characters by simply drawing them.

System Requirements:
PopChar X 7 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10).
