macOS New App Release – EarthDesk 7

fullscreen

Product Announcements Xeric Design of Incline Village, Nevada has launched a beautiful new cloud image service for EarthDesk Data subscribers. The cloud image is now precisely geo-located and parallax-corrected, contains data from up to 23 satellites, and includes polar coverage. We have worked with the Space Science and Engineering Center’s RealEarth project at the University of Wisconsin, Madison to bring this high-quality data feed to EarthDesk. Previously, only six satellites were used and the data did not extend to the poles.

EarthDesk replaces your static desktop with an image of the Earth showing current sun, moon and city illumination, as well as near real-time cloud coverage. The software allows users to purchase an optional data subscription that offers the new precision clouds with 16 times more detail than the standard cloud layer. In addition, this service displays real-time data including worldwide earthquakes, named storms (typhoons, hurricanes, etc.) and the position of the International Space Station.

The software operates silently in the background, keeping your desktop updated while you work. Unlike a screen saver, which only appears when your system is idle, EarthDesk’s dynamic desktop is continuously displayed as your desktop background (and optionally as a screen saver on the Mac version).

System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.10 or later.

Pricing and Availability:
Single user copies may be purchased for $24.99 (USD). Upgrades are available for $12.99 for licensed users of versions 5 and 6. A data subscription adds precision clouds, earthquakes, named storms and tracking of the International Space Station starting at $11.99 per year. Bundles that include EarthDesk and a discounted data subscription are available. For more details, please refer to our website.

macOS Accessory – Wirelessly Share iPhone or iPad display with Mirror for Mac

Product Announcements – AirBeamTV of Naarden, Netherlands has released “Mirror for Mac or Windows PC“. With this app every iPhone or iPad owner can mirror the display of their phone or tablet on a Mac or PC.

Wireless phone screen sharing:
The idea for the app arose from the demand of app developers and other professionals who could not find an easy wireless alternative for presenting the content of their phone. “Nowadays it is common practice to connect your computer with a cable to a projector or large TV screen during presentations or demonstrations. Our new app makes it possible to share your phone screen with the same setup without the need of an AppleTV or additional cables,” says Jan van Ottele, CEO of AirBeamTV.

Ideal classroom solution:
In addition, according to Van Ottele, the app is excellent to use in a classroom or training environment. “Especially when teaching at external locations, it is usually not practically organized in terms of technology and you are dependent on the computer systems present. However, with our app you can always share videos, photos and apps from your own phone, as long as the computer or screen you are viewing them is connected to the internet and has the free Chrome browser.”

Device Requirements:

  • iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
  • Requires iOS 12.0 or later
  • 124 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Mirror for Mac or Windows PC 3.3.1 is free to download in the App Store. Users can test the app free before upgrading to the paid version ($4.99 in the US App Store).

Further, DEVONthink 2.11.3 improves zooming Markdown documents and formatted notes, adds automatic spelling correction to HTML-based documents, and detects WikiLinks based on names and aliases up to 70 times faster.

The update creates new bookmarks defaulting to *https:* and improves the automatic naming of captured bookmarks. Email archiving is faster and more reliable, the Apple Mail plugin no longer requires full disk access on macOS Mojave, and email messages look better in their alternative representation, especially with narrow or wide windows. It’s now also possible to choose custom encodings for email.

Data backup never comes to people’s mind until it’s too late. World Backup Day (March 31) is such a day to remind people all the times they end up losing all their irreplaceable data. “Always create a backup of important data.” Under this motto, MacXDVD Software is offering free copies of its one-click iPhone data manager – MacX MediaTrans for 20 days.

Wait no more. Grab free license copies and win Apple’s AirPod before April 10, 2019, at MacX World Backup Day Giveaway Page.

There are two kinds of iPhone users: those who have lost data, and those who will. According to worldbackupday.com, 113 phones get stolen or lost per minute, but unfortunately, 30% of users never back up. Without a proper backup, all the one-of-a-kind family moments, travel recordings and other precious data on the iPhone can become “none-of-a-kind”. The World Backup Day – celebrated on March 31, reminds people not to be an April fool.

However, it’s revealed that most of iOS “backup refuseniks” are daunted by the complicated backup routine using iTunes. Even when some use Apple’s official method, many are nagged by various backup & sync issues, wired error codes as well as data loss. Throwing its full support behind the World Backup Day, MacXDVD Software is offering free copies of a no-brainer iOS backup solution – MacX MediaTrans to help Apple users recognize the need for data backup and take actions.

An Easier and Comprehensive Backup Strategy:

  • MacX MediaTrans is an easier-than-iTunes iPhone manager that is friendly to the hoi-polloi, the tech-savvy and the newbie; parents, friends, and coworkers. The one-click iPhone backup solution removes the restrictions and possible errors using iTunes, making iDevices users’ data backup experience better, smarter, faster and most importantly, trouble-free. In honor of World Backup Day, MacXDVD would like to emphasis highlights of its iPhone data backup and recovery solution:
  • Security – With an advanced algorithm and synchronization core, it will back up iPhone live/HDR/HIEC photos, music & playlists, 4k HEVC recordings, ebooks, Voice memos, Podcasts, and other media smoothly without data loss or sync errors. High-grade encryption methods such as AES 256 and RSA techs are applied to safeguard the backups from unauthorized access. Users are entitled to full control over their data.
  • Flexibility – It’s easy to backup iPhone to Macs, PCs or other external hard drives without limits. Users can save iPhone data to any new computer freely without erasing the existing iPhone library. The two-way synchronization allows convenient data restore in case any unexpected issue happens. Add photos, music, videos, etc. (no limits on the number or audio/video formats) from computer to iPhone by drag and drop. It requires no Apple ID or further settings.
  • Speed – When data backup is time-consuming using iTunes and gets stuck at its worst, MacX MediaTrans proves to be a lightning-fast solution, especially for large library saved on 128/256GB iPhone models. Depending on the data size, users can realize speed improvements over iTunes ranging from 5x to 10x faster. A quick example, it needs 3s only for backing up 20 songs.

Pricing and Availability :
MacX MediaTrans, normally priced at $59.95 (USD), is Free for all participators now in celebration of the World Backup Day. All users also stand a chance to win Apple’s AirPod by entering a valid email address. Check the details of at MacX World Backup Day Giveaway.
