Keep Your Stuff In A Safe Place

No comments:



Hubapps has announced the release of Vault 1.1, the best way to create and use encrypted file storage vaults on the Mac. The only app of its kind in the Mac App Store, Vault is built to balance the needs for maximum security and ease-of use. Its animated, point-and-click interface couching state-of-the-art file encryption promise users a portable, convenient, trustworthy file storage solution. Vault also provides a set of useful, built-in actions for files contained in vaults.

"You have files you need to keep private and secure. You want password-protected, encrypted folders to put them in. You do not want to deal with techno-jargon. You want Vault."

Vault lets anyone easily create, access, and safeguard "encrypted disk images" - basically secure folders on the Mac.

* Just create a new vault with a password, and then it can be opened and closed at leisure. Files dropped in the vault will be visible while the vault is open - and not visible when the vault is closed. It's that simple.

* Vaults are completely portable and can be opened with (and only with) the correct password, and are protected with 256-bit AES encryption (superior to Blowfish).

While a vault is open, contents are easily worked with using the integrated file browser which puts incredible features right at the users fingertips:
* Automatic, constant, live-updates instantly as new files are added
* Image grid (like iPhoto) to see thumbnails of all your files
* Sortable table shows details of files (size, type, etc)
* Quicklook integration to look inside any file (just like Finder)
* Search for specific files
* Move, open, print, or delete
* Show file in Finder
* Lots of sharing options: email, make a zip archive, upload it to the cloud and share the link, etc.

Pricing and Availability:
Vault 1.1 is $9.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.

MenuStrip 3.5 Released

No comments:




Indeeo has announced the release of MenuStrip 3.5, now available exclusively on the Mac App Store. MenuStrip 3.5, an update to the popular menu bar utility application, adds support and compatibility for Mac OS X 10.6 and the Mac App Store.

MenuStrip allows users to create their own fully customizable drop-down menus for easy access to their most commonly used applications, files, and folders. Users can also create "Action Buttons" that launch, hide, and quit groups of applications at once. MenuStrip's menu items can be displayed in the menu bar, or in a floating collapsable control strip that can be placed anywhere on the screen.

Along with the ability of creating custom menu items, MenuStrip includes several built-in menu utilities: a fast launcher that quickly finds and opens files and applications, an application switcher menu with options to hide background apps and the desktop, a customizable date/calendar item with alarm settings, and more.

MenuStrip can also be expanded with plugins. The currently available plugins allow menu bar access to Address Book contacts, an easily browse-able organized Safari history, and iTunes playback controls.

About MenuStrip:
The first version of MenuStrip originally launched on Mac OS X Public Beta, before the official release of Mac OS X (10.0). With that initial release, Mac OS X did not yet have any menu bar tools ("Menu Extras") and MenuStrip filled the void for users who were transitioning from Mac OS 9 and longed for the missing menu and control strip features. Mac OS X has evolved a great deal since then - and MenuStrip has evolved along with it, adding many more features to the menu bar and improving upon those which were later added to the OS.

Features:
* Create fully customizable drop-down menus with commonly used applications, files, and folders
* Add shortcuts in the menu bar to any application
* Launch, hide, or quit groups of applications at once using customizeable "Action Buttons"
* QuickLauncher: quickly launch applications and open files by simply typing their name
* Hide background clutter using 'Auto-Hide' and 'Hide Desktop' options
* Control Strip: place custom menus anywhere on the screen
* Expand with plugins: Contacts Menu, Safari Menu, and TunesControl

Pricing and Availability:
To celebrate the launch of MenuStrip on the Mac App Store, it is currently on sale for only $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies). MenuStrip is available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store.
