Station 1.4 – Multilevel Dock for macOS

No Comments

Plymouth, Minnesota – True North Software today is very proud to announce the release of Station 1.4, the company’s multilevel (hierarchical) launcher for macOS. Station promotes a more natural organization of applications and documents into folders. With nested folders, you can arrange items in Station in a way that fits your workflow with an uncluttered look and feel. Scalability is greatly increased through logical groupings thus increasing the sheer number of items that can be added to Station without having to shrink the launcher size.

Productivity is increased because related items can be grouped together into a single folder. For example, one folder can contain work related items and another folder gaming items. Another useful feature of Station is the ability to launch, all at once, the items in a launch folder. This is useful when switching between tasks like business and spreadsheets to graphics work. With ten levels of folders available, enough space is provided to spread out even the most diverse set of applications and documents.

What’s New for Version 1.4:
* In the preferences you can specify if you want Station to justify the panels to the left, center, or right.
* A “Populate Folder Icons…” menu item was added to the Station icon which allows you to automatically populate folder icons.

Station Features:
* Up to ten levels of folders can be shown
* The size of the icons can range from 24 to 64 points
* An alias folder can be created from any existing folder
* Display panels can be justified to the left, center, or right
* Icons can be assigned to folders to give them a more distinctive feel
* All applications and documents in a folder can be launched all at once
* Station can be displayed on the left, right or bottom side of the screen
* Folders automatically open after a short delay when you drag items over them
* Station can be displayed statically (always shown) or automatically hidden when not needed
* The display name of a folder can be renamed (e.g. “untitled” to “Graphics”)
* Scrollbar support for launch panels that exceed screen dimensions
* Embedded open folder icon can now be either blue or red
* Auto collapse of folders after launch of an item
* Select any color for the panel background color
* You can automatically populate all folder icons
* Station will automatically launch at login

Camera Guard 2 Professional – Improved Webcam and Mic Protection for Mac

No Comments

Miami, Florida – ProtectStar today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Camera Guard 2 Professional for Mac, an important update to their popular security solution. The app protects any Mac’s built-in webcam and microphone from being accessed by hackers, malware, and spyware. Version 2 brings improved protection against unauthorized access to the Mac microphone and camera, as well as added protection against Mac ransomware.

Camera Guard 2 Professional sits quietly in the background, monitoring the Mac’s built-in microphone and webcam for any unauthorized access attempts. The app efficiently blocks any detected attempts, while also alerting the Mac user to the attempts. The utility blocks both known and unknown attacks methods, thanks to its exclusive “Deep Detective” feature.

“When we discovered that illegal monitoring of Mac users via their computer’s microphone and camera was on the rise we created Camera Guard 2016, which offered complete protection against unauthorized access of your Mac’s camera and microphone,” says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. “Now that Mac ransomware is on the rise, holding users’ data hostage until the bad guys are paid, we knew we had to offer our users comprehensive protection against ransomware attacks, keeping their data safe from harm.”

The new version of the app offers numerous new features, including improved access detection, protection against Mac ransomware, a whitelist for allowed apps and processes, and support for the Apple’s Touch ID sensor that’s found on the latest models of the MacBook Pro.

Camera Guard 2 Professional’s malware protection monitors the data stored on a Mac’s hard drive. The app detects changes to monitored files and folders, or when ransomware attempts to encrypt the protected data, and immediately notifies the user.

Features:
* Web camera protection
* Pop-Up notifications regarding security breaches
* Logfile protocol
* Microphone protection
* Deep Detective(TM)
* Protection against known and unknown attack attempts
* Protection against Mac ransomware
* File and folder monitoring
* Whitelist
* Passcode protection
* Supports Touch ID on compatible MacBook Pro models
* 24/7 Support by e-Mail

Camera Guard 2 Professional still includes ProtectStar’s better than ever exclusive “Deep Detective” feature, which monitors all attempted access to any protected Mac. While offering proactive protection that is similar to other companies’ firewall or intrusion detection utilities, Deep Detective also reports and protects against both known and unknown attacks, via its modern heuristic methods.

While offering comprehensive protection against monitoring and malware, Camera Guard 2 Professional has been built from the ground up to be a lightweight yet powerful solution, which places minimal demands on any Mac’s available resources. Use of the computer’s processing power, battery power, available memory, and disk space are kept to a minimum. The app will never slow the performance of any Mac it is installed on.

“We’re excited about the new protection abilities we’ve included in the latest version of Camera Guard,” says Niklas Mayle, Security Manager of the Development Team at ProtectStar. “Not only can our users rest easy that they aren’t being monitored by the bad guys via their own Mac, they can also prevent ransomware attacks by those same bad guys with just a few clicks of their mouse!”

Device Requirements:
* Mac OS 10.11 or higher (Supports macOS High Sierra)
* 64-bit Processor
* 50 MB
* Internet connection for activation and updates

Pricing and Availability:
Camera Guard 2 Professional for Mac is $29.90 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) and includes 12-months of updates/upgrades and technical support. A Care Plan is also available for $59.90 USD, and includes 3-years of updates/upgrades and premium technical support.

App Tamer 2.3.3 can speed up Time Machine and adjust process priorities

No Comments

Denver, Colorado – St. Clair Software is happy to announce the availability of a free update to its App Tamer utility for macOS. App Tamer 2.3.3 features a new option to speed up Time Machine backups, the ability to alter a process’ priority, and addresses a number of other issues.

The changes in version 2.3.3 include:
* There’s now a checkbox to speed up Time Machine backups in the Options tab of the preferences. It uses a popular method for removing Low Process Priority Throttling.
* App Tamer can change a process’ priority. While this generally doesn’t make much of a performance difference, it can when multiple processes are competing for disk or network access. Hold down the Option key while clicking on a process in the process list to access the priority slider.
* App Tamer will no longer alert you to processes using too much CPU when its process management is turned off.
* You can no longer limit the CPU usage of WindowServer or hidd because that can cause Bad Things.
* Processes using an average of more than 5% CPU are shown in bold.
* App Tamer’s icon in the menu bar uses slightly less space.

More about App Tamer:
Some Mac applications, especially web browsers, continue running tasks or animations even when they’re supposed to be idle in the background. This can consume valuable processing power, reducing battery life and producing heat that increases fan noise. App Tamer’s unique AutoStop capability automatically slows down or pauses these applications when you switch away from them, and then restarts them when you click back to them. This frees your CPU and reduces power consumption.

App Tamer comes pre-configured to automatically manage Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Spotlight, Time Machine, Word and many other apps when they’re in the background. And customizing it for other applications is just a mouse click away.

Pricing and Availability:
App Tamer will operate on any Macintosh running macOS 10.8 or higher, and is free to try for 15 days. A license to continue using it after the trial period is $14.95 (USD). This update is free for users who purchased App Tamer 2.x or bought App Tamer 1.x after July 1, 2013. For those that purchased a license before that date, the upgrade is $7.95 (USD).

New App helps create stencils for custom Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns

No Comments

Lenexa, Kansas – Carving Technologies, LLC announces the release and immediate availability of Me-On-A-Pumpkin 1.1.7, the company’s pumpkin carving stencil creation app for iOS and Android devices. First introduced in 1998, Me-On-A-Pumpkin was the first software of its kind, in the world. This easy-to-use app allows anyone to create unique pumpkin carving stencils using an iPhone or iPad. Users may upload any detailed image of their favorite subject, follow the simple instructions to create the perfect pumpkin carving stencil, and then print directly to their printer. Just print, carve, and enjoy the best Jack-O-Lanterns on the block, this year!

Me-On-A-Pumpkin allows the user to upload images in several common file formats, and produces an initial thumbnail image. Users then use slide controls to adjust the level of detail desired, the thickness of the lines or edges, and the color saturation to clarify the image. Once satisfied, the image is presented as a jack-o lantern in yellow and orange. The yellow illustrating the light projected from within the pumpkin, and the orange representing the pumpkin remaining after carving.

The image is then tested automatically for fallout. Areas which would fall free during carving are illustrated in red. Users are provided with simple pen tools used to either add pumpkin material to connect areas within the image and eliminate fallout, or add more yellow area, if detail is not required. As changes are made, the red or fallout areas vanish, as if by magic!

After eliminating the fallout, the image on the pumpkin is ready to print. Users may select either dots or lines on the printout. Once printed, and affixed to the pumpkin, dots are typically used to mark the surface of the pumpkin with an awl or pin. Carving follows these marks on the face of the pumpkin. Others prefer printing solid line stencils, which are affixed to the pumpkin with tape.

Carving is done directly through the paper stencil. Other options include scraping areas of the pumpkin skin to provide relief carving effects, and provide interesting effects once the pumpkin is lighted, allowing partial light to penetrate the areas scraped or gouged away. The pumpkins may then be lighted by any safe and convenient means, revealing the true image projected from within. Happy Halloween!

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 24.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Me-On-A-Pumpkin 1.1.7 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. For more information, please contact Larry Welch.
