Janus Notes 1.2.4 - Note-taking with respect for your right to privacy. (Free)

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sat, 30/08/2014 - 14:47
Janus Notes is an Open Source note-taking program that seriously respects your right to privacy. It supports plain-text notes, and markdown with preview and free-format attachments. The notes can be seamlessly shared among different Macs and to your iDevices using Dropbox. Or not. It's your call. Your notes can be encrypted on your Dropbox so as to avoid eavesdroppers. This app understands that note-taking is a very personal thing, and it tries very hard to keep your data as safe as possible. The application has no access to your Dropbox beside the specific folder that we use for storing notes, and it is fully sandboxed. We have no access to anything other than the Dropbox folder you choose and the attachments you added to the notes (a copy of them, stored with the notes). The source code is available (MIT licensed) on GitHub under ilTofa/janusnotes.

Your data is safe.

Version 1.2.4:
  • Fixes some small bugs related to quit and save
  • Killed a library that was phoning the App Store

  • OS X 10.7.3 or later

IP Camera Utility 1.0.2 - Utility supporting the EyeSpy 247 F+ and similar cameras (beta). (Free)

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Sat, 30/08/2014 - 14:37
IP Camera Utility is a utility supporting the EyeSpy 247 F+ and similar cameras.


  • Finds your camera(s) on your network
  • Manage motion detection areas
  • View video, listen to sound from the camera's microphone
  • Adds a sound trigger with adjustable threshold
  • Save video to your computer when triggered

Certain cameras like the Eyespy 247 F+ have admin features (in particular, setting up motion detection areas) which make use of ActiveX and therefore aren't accessible from OSX. This free application fills in those gaps. It also adds a sound trigger which isn't built into these cameras.

The list of cameras supported is small, including certain older cameras manufactured by Sercomm for EyeSpy 247, Xanboo and others. If the 'Find Cameras' feature finds your camera, this doesn't mean that your camera is actually supported.

Version 1.0.2:
  • Adds a month to the beta expiry date

  • OS X 10.6 or later
  • Eyespy 247 F+ or similar
