iCaching 5.0.5

Last Thursday we released the long awaited version 5.0 and received a lot of enthousiast reactions. Although we tested a lot and had a beta period, there appeared to be a few issues with this version. Fortunately the database conversion issue we reported here before seems to be contained to just a few cases. We […]

Version 5.0 is out! [update: please report conversion issues]

This morning we could finally release version 5.0! The update is available in the app store. Explore the new features like the location picker to insert coordinates, the photos tab and the improved performance. Happy caching! WARNING! There are some reports coming in about databases that are not correctly converted to version 5.0. We’re researching […]

Version 5.0 Public Beta is out

Two weeks ago we could send out the first public beta of iCaching 5.0 and last week the second beta. Eventually, version 5.0 brought much more code changed than initially intended, so it took much more time than expected to finish it. But with this version we have a good foundation for the future.

A small update on it’s way

Just pressed the submit button for version 4.97.7. A small update which fixes some little bugs reported by customers. Also added some small improvements. The most important one: in addition to the existing cmd-backspace keystroke (like in Finder), you can delete a cache from the list with just delete or backspace alone. So when Apple […]

See screenshot). To implement these features I had to make major refactorings in the existing […]

Export blues

While working on version 5.0 (which unfortunately takes more time than expected), I still want to do some maintenance on version 4.x. Once in a while I also like to add a few features in that version too. Recently some users asked if it were possible to add attribute names to the cache description when […]

Tips and tricks: The Map window

The Map window has some nice (hidden) features. So it is worth a separate post. What to show By default the map shows the caches in the active folder. So the caches on the map are the same as the caches listed in the cache list of the main window. When you click on a […]

New look

Within a few days we hope to release iCaching 4.90. We changed plans after the bumpy road to this version. Both 4.80 and 4.85 unfortunately had some serious bugs. Fixing these bugs took some time, therefore we decided to implement (the biggest part) of the new Yosemite style look, planned for version 5.0, into this […]
