macOS New App Release – Wakefy 0.2.0


Product Announcement – Independent developer, Javier Ramirez of Madrid, Spain has released Wakefy 0.2.0 for macOS. Wakefy is a simple, beautiful free app that turns your Mac into a Spotify alarm clock. It forces you to actually get up and walk to turn off the alarm, and allows you to wake up to your favorite Spotify tunes. It works even if your Mac is not awake.

“I have a sleep disorder called DSPS that makes me a really heavy sleeper in the morning,” explained Javi Ramirez, indie developer. “And you know, sleeping next to my phone, as we all do, did not help at all. I subconsciously mastered the ability to turn off that awful alarm without even opening an eye. I became desperate to wake up on time most days. That’s why I decided to put an end to my problem and created Wakefy. I just want people to solve their waking up problems or just enjoy better mornings.”

Some other benefits of using Wakefy are:

  • Useful for those nights when you fall asleep watching Netflix and forget to set the alarm on your phone
  • It’s a tiny, unobtrusive tool that lives in your menu bar and only pops up when you need it – Set it once, forget about it
  • Nice for travelling: it can save you from situations where you ran out of battery on your phone or even left it at home

The fact that you can set a Spotify playlist as the alarm sound implies you can wake up each day with a different song, preventing you from getting used (and ignoring) a single alarm ringtone. It prevents you from hating a single alarm sound, too!

Wakefy 0.2.0 is freely available, and can be downloaded directly from its official website. macOS 10.12 or later required.

Product Review – Grammarly Extension for Safari

Product Review – I read about Grammarly in a recent “Working Smarter for Mac Users” newsletter. This is written and distributed by Bob “Dr Mac” Levitus from The Mac Observer. As you might expect from the product name, Grammarly is an extension for Safari on your Mac. As described on the extension website:

Grammarly – Will help you communicate more effectively. As you type, Grammarly flags mistakes and helps you make sure your messages, documents, and social media posts are clear, mistake-free, and impactful.

The free version does a nice job. Below are three examples of what it will catch. Text that it has a recommendation for is underlined in red. Move your cursor over the underlined word or phrase and the pop-up will appear. You can then click on the ‘green’ recommendation (if you agree with it) in the pop-up box and it will be implemented in the text you are writing:

  • misspelling
    Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.05.28 PM
  • unnecessary comma
    Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.05.39 PM
  • wrong word
    Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 1.05.47 PM


While I have not tried the Premium paid version, the level of writing I do just doesn’t, in my mind, justify the cost of the paid service. I will continue to use the Safari extension as I do like how it reports recommended changes.


My recommendation: Install the free version and pass on the paid Premium version



  • Easy to use
  • Easy to install
  • Base service is free
  • Works with any writing you do within a Safari window



  • You do have to create an account
  • You must be connected to the internet for Grammarly to work
  • Paid (Premium) version is expensive ($29.95/month, $59.95 for 3 months, or $139.95 for a year)

macOS New App Release – LinkOptimizer


Product AnnouncementsZevrix Solutions of Toronto (ON), Canada has released LinkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign which is now available on the new and improved Adobe Exchange. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and helps users reduce the size of InDesign links, save prepress costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

Adobe Exchange provides a new way to search, discover, and install plug-ins, extensions, and other content for Creative Cloud products.. As a unified destination that brings third-party integrations with Creative Cloud, Document Cloud & Experience Cloud under a single umbrella, Adobe Exchange will make it easier for customers to discover and install integrations that expand and enhance what they can achieve on Adobe’s Clouds.

“We are delighted to have products like LinkOptimizer from Zevrix Solutions available on Adobe Exchange”, says Jonathan Ferman, Adobe Exchange Product Manager. “This provides users with an easy way to install products and see updates as and when they become available.”

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

  • Optimize dozens of InDesign files
  • Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
  • Change their resolution to 300 dpi
  • Convert RGB images to CMYK
  • Resave JPEGs as TIFF
  • Run a Photoshop action on each image

As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Adobe Exchange for $259.95 USD (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Zevrix website and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.13 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2018.


macOS New App Release – HoudahGeo 5.2


Product Announcements – Houdah Software of Luxembourg City, Luxembourg  has released HoudahGeo 5.2, a major upgrade to the photo geotagging tool for Mac. HoudahGeo tags photos with GPS coordinates and location names. Geotags allow photo cataloging tools to organize and find photos by location.

Location information adds to the “story” of a photo. A photo pinned to a map has context. A series of tagged photos documents the path taken.

That’s why we took a GPS track logger on our trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Later on, this allowed us to geotag our photos using HoudahGeo.

Browsing the photos we took during this once-in-a-lifetime vacation, we can retrace our steps through the rainforest, into the heather zone, the mountain desert and finally to the summit. Seeing the photos and track log on a map helps recalling details, understanding the route we took and makes telling our story so much more visual and interactive.

For details on the equipment we used on the Kilimanjaro trek, check out the Houdah Software blog. There you will also find examples of what our photos look like in Google Earth and Google Photos.

HoudahGeo makes it easy to geotag digital photos with GPS location information. It writes future-proof EXIF, XMP, and IPTC tags to JPEG and RAW image files. HoudahGeo also supports XMP sidecar files.

HoudahGeo can load photos from Apple Photos, iPhoto, Aperture, and Adobe Lightroom catalogs. HoudahGeo can then tag original image files and add location information to photos in Apple Photos, iPhoto, and Aperture libraries. This gives the users of Apple’s photo cataloging tools access to the many photo geocoding options HoudahGeo has to offer:

  • Automatic geocoding using GPS track logs
  • Geocoding using reference photos taken using iPhone, a smartphone, or a GPS-enabled camera
  • Geocoding without a GPS. Use the built-in map to double-check, adjust, or assign locations to your photos

How is geotagging different from assigning locations in Apple Photos?

Geotagging writes location information to metadata tags within the original image files. This creates a permanent bond between a photo and the location where it was taken. HoudahGeo writes the same industry-standard EXIF and XMP as used by GPS-enabled cameras. Such geotags can be used by Apple Photos as well as other photo cataloging or publishing tools.

Location information added in Apple Photos exists only within the library database. The original images remain unaltered. Only exported versions of the photo can be set to include geotags.

HoudahGeo feature highlights:

  • Supports many methods of geocoding: GPS track logs, built-in maps, Google Earth, etc.
  • Writes GPS data, location names, title, description and keywords to EXIF, XMP and IPTC tags
  • Works with JPEG as well as a large number of RAW file formats. It also supports XMP sidecar files
  • Notifies Apple Photos, iPhoto, and Aperture of changes made to photo location information
  • Exports photos and track logs for viewing in Google Earth

New in HoudahGeo 5.2:

  • Support for Lightroom Classic CC. Import photos and metadata from Lightroom catalogs
  • HoudahGeo now offers autocompletion when editing location, city, province/state, country names
  • HoudahGeo now reads and writes the EXIF v2.31 OffsetTimeOriginal tag. This specifies the camera clock time zone
  • HoudahGeo now updates the XMP MetadataDate tag when writing EXIF/XMP tags
  • Greatly improved performance of bulk changes. E.g. setting the location name on all selected images

Notable additions in previous releases:

  • Apple Photos: HoudahGeo can now add locations to photos in the Apple Photos library. Requires Photos 2.0 on macOS Sierra
  • Places: Quickly assign photos to favorite places and apply coordinates and location names
  • Drag-and-drop geocoding: Drag images to the built-in map and drop them at the location where they were taken
  • Reverse geocoding: Look up location names in English, German, Spanish and French
  • Camera import: Download photos from your camera. Geotag photos before importing them into your photo library
  • Lightroom integration: HoudahGeo reads location metadata directly from the Lightroom catalog
  • Keywords editor: The new keywords editor makes it easy to assign keywords in bulk
  • Map search: No GPS? No problem! Search for landmarks, cities, as well as your favorite places
  • Publish KML to Dropbox: Upload photos and track logs to Dropbox. View in Google Earth and Google My Maps

System Requirements:

  • OS X Version 10.10 or later. Fully tested with macOS 10.13 High Sierra
  • Some features require macOS 10.12 Sierra
  • It is recommended that iCloud Photos users geotag their photos before uploading these to the cloud
  • Digital camera
  • Optional GPS track logger
  • Optional iPhone, smartphone, or GPS-enabled camera
  • 55 MB of disk space

HoudahGeo 5.2 is priced at $39 USD (+ tax) for a single-user license. A full-featured demo version is available. Licenses are available from the Houdah Software in-app and web stores.

macOS New App Release – FmPro Migrator Platinum Edition 8.48


Product Announcements – .com Solutions Inc. of Fremont, California has released FmPro Migrator Platinum Edition 8.48 with enhancements supporting the automated conversion from Microsoft Visual FoxPro to FileMaker Pro Advanced 16. This release supports FileMaker Pro Advanced 11 – 16 on macOS and Windows.

The Problem: Visual FoxPro has been discontinued by Microsoft for more than 10 years – and you need to upgrade to a supported custom app development platform.

The Solution: FmPro Migrator Platinum Edition 8.48 has been enhanced to perform automated Visual FoxPro to FileMaker 16 conversions.

FileMaker (an Apple subsidiary) is widely regarded as the leader in low code custom app development – supporting Windows, macOS, IOS and HTML5 deployment platforms. Converting legacy Microsoft Visual FoxPro applications to FileMaker 16 offers many advantages including:

  • Cross platform compatibility – FileMaker solutions run directly on macOS, Windows and IOS devices. WebDirect serves FileMaker custom apps via HTML5 to all mobile and desktop platforms running a supported web browser. Visual FoxPro can only run on the Microsoft Windows operating system.
  • Easier database sharing – FileMaker database files can be shared using FileMaker Server or FileMaker Cloud with macOS, Windows and IOS devices. WebDirect serves FileMaker database files via HTML5 to any device or platform using any supported web browser. Visual FoxPro can never run directly on this many platforms without major rewriting.
  • Greatly enhanced file capacity – FileMaker supports a 7TB filesize compared with the anemic 2GB Visual FoxPro DBF filesize limit. If a DBF file ever exceeds the 2GB file size limit, it will immediately become corrupted.
  • FileMaker Cloud Hosting – FileMaker Cloud is a version of FileMaker Server running on the AWS cloud infrastructure. FileMaker Cloud provides secure, reliable access to your custom apps using FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, and FileMaker WebDirect – all without the administrative hassle.
  • Easier Development – Upgrading to FileMaker Pro 16 also offers developers the opportunity to take advantage of the latest design, development and security features included with FileMaker Pro Advanced 16 and FileMaker Server 16 and FileMaker Cloud 16 – including WebDirect capacity enhancements.

FmPro Migrator Developer Edition (8.48) is priced at $600 (USD) per developer, and is available from the website. A functional demo version of FmPro Migrator may be downloaded from .com Solutions online.


macOS New App Release – Script Debugger 7


Product Announcements – Late Night Software Ltd. of Victoria, Canada has released Script Debugger 7, the latest version of its award-winning AppleScript development software. The upgrade introduces Script Debugger Lite, several new features and a raft of other tweaks and improvements, making it even easier to take full advantage of AppleScript.

Script Debugger is an integrated development environment focused entirely on AppleScript. This highly specific focus allows it to deliver a suite of tools that make AppleScript development amazingly productive. You can use it to write and edit code, analyze target applications, debug scripts, and more.

AppleScript is a venerable and proven scripting language for automating tasks on the Macintosh. It uses terminology that is similar to common English words, and is relatively easy to learn in comparison to other scripting languages. But it is also an object-oriented language that is fully capable of handling complex programming tasks when necessary. AppleScript creates script files that can control your computer and its various applications. It can be used to automate repetitive and error-prone manual tasks, saving both time and money.

The biggest change in Script Developer 7 is the free “lite” mode, which offers all the basic editing, debugging and dictionary functions that you need to write your code. Even without Script Debugger’s advanced features, it represents a significant improvement over the Apple’s Script Editor which comes with your Macintosh. We see Script Debugger Lite as the best free option available for working with AppleScript.

Other new features in Script Debugger 7 include document version browsing where you can retrieve past versions of scripts, an improved bundle editor providing greater control over script applications, and the enhanced applet shell offering an improved UI and support for automatic software updates via Sparkle when deploying scripts as stand-alone applications.

“I can’t imagine using AppleScript all of these years without Script Debugger. In fact, it has spoiled me. Script Debugger has paid for itself many times over. One of the great benefits is having a responsive team of developers at Late Night to help. There are so many features that I’m continually finding new functions to use, saving time and frustration. In short, having an editing environment for a small yet powerful language like AppleScript seems like a miracle for over 20 years now. Wow!” Ray Robertson @scriptsmatter

“If you use AppleScript at all you should download this. Even if all you do is use the free version instead of Script Editor.” Jason Snell @jsnell

Script Debugger has a 20+ year history, and during that time has been widely recognized for its excellence as an AppleScript development environment. In 2000, Script Debugger 2.0 was honoured with a MacWorld Editors Choice award for Best Development Software. Script Debugger 3.0 was nominated for the 2002 MacUser Award in the category of Utility and Enabling. Script Debugger has long been the go-to tool for professional and hobbyist AppleScript users alike, and Script Debugger 6 improves upon that heritage.

System Requirements: Script Debugger 7 requires macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) or later

Script Debugger 7 is available now, from the website and retails for $99.99 (USD), with upgrades from Script Debugger 6 for $49.99 (USD).
