Witch 4.3.2 released

January 31st, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Witch 4.3.2 is out. There aren’t a ton of changes in this version (release notes), but one of them could prove very useful: Witch’s status menu item will now tell you when secure input mode is enabled. (To see this, you need to have at least one switcher enabled in the menu bar.)

Why would you want to know this? Because if you have Witch set to use Command-Tab, we can’t capture those keys when secure input mode is active, and you’ll see the stock macOS switcher instead. Now Witch can (usually) tell you which app invoked secure input.

We also squashed a bug that caused some Chrome tabs not to respond to the ‘w’ key.

Updates are available within the Witch System Preferences panel, or you can just download a full new version from our site.

Desktop Curtain 3.0.9 released

January 31st, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Desktop Curtain 3.0.9 is out with some minor changes and a fix for an occasional crashing bug for Mac App Store users (full release notes).

Direct customers should see an update available within the app (or they can download the full version directly from our site), and App Store customers should see the update in the App Store app.

Leech 3.1.3 released

December 18th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Leech 3.1.3 is out now; this is primarily a bug fix release—see the release notes for the gory details.

There is, however, one new addition to the Safari extension: You can specify a regular expression to help filter matches when using the extension’s “download all links” feature. You set the expression on Leech’s Advanced tab, and Leech then applies the filter so that only matched items are downloaded. (There are a couple examples of how to use it in the help file.)

App Store users should see the update in the App Store app; direct users can update in-app, or by downloading a new copy of the app from the Leech web page.

Butler 4.3 released

December 18th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Butler 4.3 is out now, with some bug fixes and a couple new features:

  • Chrome bookmarks can now be imported.
  • Deactivate defined hot corners by clicking the active radio button; it will deselect.

Check the release notes for all the details. You can get the new version via the in-app updater, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app from the Butler web page.

Witch 4.3.1 released

November 8th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Witch 4.3.1 is out. As with today’s Moom update, this is primarily a bug fix release…and also like today’s Moom update, Witch also gets a nice new icon. (You may not notice when looking at Witch in System Preferences, as it’s much smaller there.)

As always, you’ll find a full list of changes in the release notes. In today’s release, Witch gains support for Mojave’s Dark Mode (yes, just like Moom did, too), and we worked around an issue switching between Chrome tabs and windows across displays and/or when using full screen windows. We also fixed a memory leak that was affecting some users.

Check for the update in-app via About tab in Witch’s settings, or just download a new copy of the app from the Witch web page.

Moom 3.2.13 released

November 8th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Moom 3.2.13 is out. This is primarily a bug fix release, though you may spot a new icon if you’ve got a keen eye…or if you just glance over to the right a bit.

As always, you’ll find a full list of changes in the release notes; other than the icon change, Mojave’s Dark Mode users should see some improvements with Moom 3.2.13. We also worked around a change in iTunes that prevented Moom from moving or resizing the iTunes window under certain conditions.

Direct customers can check for the update in-app via the menus or preferences (or just download a new copy of the app from the Moom web page). App Store users should see the update in the Mac App Store app soon, if not already.

Butler 4.2.3 is out

November 4th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Butler 4.2.3 is out, with a number of minor changes and one notable new feature: You can now assign names to plain text smart items, making them easier to find and organize. We also fixed an incompatibility with macOS 10.8 and 10.9. You can see all the details in the full release notes.

We’ve updated a number of our apps…

October 3rd, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Following on the heels of Butler, Keymou, Moom, and Witch, we’ve updated the rest of our main app suite (excluding Name Mangler). As always, you can find the updates within the app or by downloading a new version (direct customers), or in the Mac App Store app (App Store customers). Here’s a little bit about what’s new in each app…

Desktop Curtain 3.0.8

Some behind the scenes changes, and a fix for an annoying bug that could cause Desktop Curtain to stall for a few seconds after clicking a Desktop-covering curtain. [Release Notes]

Leech 3.1.2

We’ve rewritten the Leech extension to work with the new rules of Safari 12, and added support for Full Screen and Split View modes. [Release Notes]

Resolutionator 1.1.2

Fixed a long delay before the menu appeared for those using dynamic desktop images in Mojave, and Resolutionator now supports Dark Mode in macOS Mojave. [Release Notes]

Time Sink 2.0.1

We’ve added a checkbox so you can include windows from menu bar apps, fixed a bug that broke Time Sink on 10.9.5, and the Escape key can now be used to cancel interval dragging in the Activity Report window. [Release Notes]

Usher 1.1.17

Yes, it’s no longer for sale, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get updated. This update adds more fields to the CSV export, you can search for ‘or more’ star ratings by adding a plus (***+), and we fixed a preview-related crash when previewing a huge number of movies. And oh yes, if you use Smart Playlists with subdivisions, try selecting more than one subdivision—notice the search bar now lets you see the Union and Intersection of those selections. [Release Notes]

All of these updates are live now, though App Store customers may not see them just yet—but they should show as available very soon now.

Moom 3.2.12 now (mostly) works in Adobe apps

September 27th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Moom 3.2.12 is out now (direct and hopefully in the Mac App Store shortly, if not already). The big news in this release is that Adobe’s apps work with Moom, with one visible and unfixable (by us) exception: The green pop-up menu will not appear.

But you can now use Moom’s keyboard mode (or global hot keys) to move and zoom windows (and you should be able to save window layouts, too). Hopefully a future Adobe update will enable the green pop-up menu to work, but again, that’s out of our control.

There are some other new features and fixes, too, as detailed on the release notes page: Touch Bar support when using Moom’s keyboard controls; we’ve worked around incompatibilities with Subliminal and DockShelf; and fixed a pesky bug that prevented reassigning the same keyboard shortcuts if you’d moved an action around in the list of other actions.

Direct users can update via in-app updating, or by downloading a new copy from Moom’s web page. App Store users should be able to update now, or if not now, shortly.

Butler 4.2 increases its bit count by 100%

September 25th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Butler 4.2.2 (see update below) is out now, and the big news is that headlined 100% increase in bit count. That’s right, Butler is now a 64-bit application, so you can say goodbye to that annoying macOS 32-bit nag dialog! This was a huge project for Peter, though from the end user perspective, you won’t see any different except in Activity Monitor…

In other news, Butler gained some additional tricks…

  • There are no longer four separate menu bar sections on macOS 10.12 Sierra and newer. Instead, each top-level item in “Menu Bar” automatically gets its own menu bar representation that you can command-drag around.
  • The “Recent Clipboards” window can now filter entries based on the text they contain. Matching is fuzzy by default, but you can uncheck that via the little magnifying glass’s pop-up menu.
  • Deleting all clipboards via the “Recent Clipboards” window’s action menu now triggers an alert at first, unless you hold option while choosing the menu item.
  • Added some new built-in icons. The new black & white default menu bar icon (hat & bow tie, a.k.a. Butler’s Regalia) in particular goes well with an all black & white menu bar.
  • Modernized the user interface ever so slightly, renamed some things for consistency reasons, and fixed various other bugs and issues.

More changes are detailed on Butler’s release notes page, and you can get the update by checking for updates in the app, or by downloading a new copy of the app from the Butler web page.


Update: Butler is actually at version 4.2.2 now. Version 4.2.1 fixed two regressions (broken right clicks; pasting of Plain Text Smart Items), and version 4.2.2 fixed yet another regression (broken hot keys on older macOS versions). We apologize for the inconvenience!
