Cookie Stumbler (5 Macs) 2.0.9 - Scan for ad and tracking cookies. (Shareware)

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sun, 20/04/2014 - 19:47
We are also selling the Single User license of Cookie Stumbler for $9.95, that's 47% off!

Cookie Stumbler eliminates Ad & Tracking cookies and allows you conveniently to maintain only the cookies on your computer which you really want to keep. This eliminates threats to your privacy and helps your web browsers to run faster. It will recognize known Ad/Tracking cookies via definitions which are updated frequently similar to anti-virus software and so far unidentified Ad/tracking cookies via an intelligent heuristics engine, which is built-in. Cookie Stumbler isn't dependent on advertising companies to "allow" users to opt out as some other applications. It does its job independently and it will do so without interfering when you browse the web.

Cookie Stumbler is extremely easy to use. Once you have chosen either one of the default selection criteria such as your bookmarks or history or have put the cookies of some sites which you really want to keep on your 'keep-list', you can run the cleaning process automatically to a schedule which suits your needs. The schedules can be built easily and as customized and flexible as you want them to be. Supporting almost every commonly used browser in the market (currently Safari, Firefox, Chromium, Chrome,Roccat Camino, OmniWeb, Flash) you can use this program either to investigate exactly what websites are storing on your computer or clean it in one click or just let it run without you even remembering to run it. You can even integrate Cookie Stumbler actions into your own workflow by using our Automator Actions. Whatever you chosen workflow might be: Cookie Stumbler will make your Mac more safe and run smoother.

For more details see our website (WriteIt! Studios' website will open in a new window).

Cookie Stumbler 2.0.9 - Scan for ad and tracking cookies. (Shareware)

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sun, 20/04/2014 - 19:35

Cookie Stumbler 2 is here. Rewritten from scratch and featuring a re-engineered heuristics engine that detects up to 6 times as many tracking cookies as its predecessor and that processes cookies up to 40 times faster, Cookie Stumbler 2 still includes all the features that you love, but takes them all a step further to make the best even better.

Time Saving... Cookie Stumbler 2 quickly analyses your Mac's cookies and lets you know how many tracking cookies it has found - a task that would have taken a lot of time when going through a large amount of cookies by yourself. Thanks to Cookie Stumbler's unmatched heuristics engine, you'll get a reliable, up-to-date tracking report within just a few moments, regardless of the number of cookies stored on your Mac.

Smart Cleaning... Cookie Stumbler 2 introduces "Smart Cleaning". Rather than going through the tedious process of telling Cookie Stumbler your domain preferences one by one, Smart Cleaning allows you to achieve the same effect using a single rule. You choose the criteria and what to do with cookies that match it - Cookie Stumbler will handle the rest.

Centralized control over your cookies... Rather than having to manage each Web browsers' cookies separately, Cookie Stumbler 2 consolidates them into one convenient location. And thanks to Cookie Stumbler 2's brand new categorization and search tools, this kind of a task has become simpler than ever.

Compatible with major Web browsers... Cookie Stumbler 2 supports all major Web browsers out of the box, which include Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Opera, iCab, Camino, Roccat, Adobe Flash Player, and Microsoft Silverlight. Support for additional Web browsers can be achieved using web browser plugins.

Maintains your Mac... Cookie Stumbler 2 features various maintenance programs, which ensure that your Web browsers use less hard drive space, are faster, more reliable and safer to use. You can run these programs anytime by yourself or as part of a regular cookie cleaning operation.

Keep track on tracking cookies... Advertising companies use cookies to track you. Time to return the favor. Cookie Stumbler 2 features an intuitive statistics system which will provide you with a clear overview of your recent cookie activity. And, using Cookie Stumbler 2's new mapping system, you can even track cookies back.

RedHand 1.9.4 - Smart and flexible locking solution for your Mac. (Shareware)

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sun, 20/04/2014 - 19:34


RedHand locks your computer. Manually via global hot key, menu bar or dock. Automatically after a period of inactivity (much like a screensaver), depending on the presence of a Bluetooth device, or whenever your computer goes to sleep.

Whenever someone tries to gain access to your computer, RedHand takes a photo and informs you about it.

You don't have to think about locking your computer. You don't even have to remember your password. Use your phone as the key! Just tell RedHand to look for a specific Bluetooth device. If you leave the room your computer will be locked. As soon as you are back you'll find it unlocked. Unlocking via password still works-just in case your mobile ran out of juice.

With its ability to execute scripts (AppleScript or anything you could launch via command line) RedHand lets you perform any action you want: send an email or play an audio file when an invalid password was entered. Perform maintenance tasks when the computer was locked. Its up to you. The scripts can access the photo taken.



Version 1.9.4:
  • Improved stability.


  • OS X 10.5.8 or later
  • iSight or other video capturing device (optional)

ToDo X 2.4 - To-do task organizer. (Shareware)

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sun, 20/04/2014 - 19:32


ToDo X is a native Cocoa to-do list application for Mac OS X. Its user interface is deliberately, almost ruthlessly simplified, yet it provides plenty of power under the hood: it allows you to maintain multiple, prioritized lists of to-do items, each with unlimited attached notes and clickable links to Web locations, documents, folders and addressbook entries; you can link items to multiple lists and use drag & drop to copy, link or move items between lists; you can search, display or print the union of selected lists. You have instant access to your to-do lists from the dock or the menu bar, and you can create a to-do item from selected text in any application that supports the Services menu. ToDo X can import from iCal, from other Mac or Windows applications that generate .ics files, and from the classic Mac OS desk accessory "ToDo!".

Version 2.4:
  • The warning alert that confirms deletion of a non-empty category now has no default button.
  • The warning alert that confirms a dire action, such as deletion of everything, now has a red background.
  • The appearance of the main window is now set by control-clicking in the window border area. The "Use textured appearance" option has been removed.
  • By default, the application no longer quits automatically when its main window is closed. The old behavior is available as an option.
  • A new hidden preference named HideOnEdit causes the main window to hide automatically whenever a New/Edit Item window is active. HideOnEdit is experimental, can be set only via the Terminal, and will not be documented outside this release note.
  • In ToDo X version 2.3, choosing an item from the dock or status menu could leave the Edit window inactive. This has been fixed.
  • In ToDo X version 2.3, there was a cosmetic issue in dock animation when activating with a miniaturized window. This has been fixed.
  • In pre-Leopard releases of Mac OS X (10.4 and earlier) the main window occasionally failed to refresh when reappearing with a modal window in front. This has been fixed.
  • Snow Leopard and later releases presume to add items from the Services menu to the context menus of the Categories and Things To Do lists. Such additions have been eliminated, since they were often not appropriate.
  • If you are using Apple Mail in Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later, you can create to-do items from selected email messages using the free Mail to ToDo X AppleScript. This now uses message URLs in favor of file URLs, where possible.


OS X 10.2 or later

Users finding first-generation Apple TVs unable to connect to iTunes Store

9 to 5 Mac - Apple Intelligence - Sun, 20/04/2014 - 19:25

Some users of the first version of Apple’s set-top box are reporting that their devices are suddenly unable to connect to the iTunes Store, according to a 19-page discussion thread (via MacRumors) on Apple’s support website. A backend change is likely responsible for this problem, though Apple hasn’t yet clarified whether this is a permanent change or a temporary glitch.

The issue was first reported three days ago, with new reports coming in every day since. Thus far no one has been able to find a remedy. At least one user in the thread notes that his Apple TV is working fine while connected to the internet via an Ethernet cable, but it seems such successes are few and far between.

Second- and third-generation devices (the small block “hockey puck” models) seem to be unaffected. This outage follows a similarly mysterious drop in FaceTime connectivity for users of iOS 6.
