OodyMate Empowers People to Eat Like a Local

CrossAxis Inc. announces OodyMate 3.1.1, an update to their social travel app developed for all travelers. This app provides the opportunity to meet other foodies, anywhere in the world. OodyMate is not an itinerary recommendation app, nor is it a dating app. Female solo travelers with safety concerns can request to meet with other women only.



For vegan travelers, there is also the option to connect with other vegans. OodyMate leverages the power of community to help travelers around the world. How do you find a good place to eat without spending hours researching online or ending up at a tourist trap? If you don’t speak the local language, the chances of finding somewhere that provides a truly authentic dining experience are reduced even further.


The app’s innovative matching system allows users to eat like a local. After downloading the app, users can browse through the list of open requests and locals in every city. Posted OodyMeet (open request) will remain on the list for other users to see. Once there is a match, start chatting to get to know each other and coordinate the meeting. Travelers using the app can choose in advance if they want to split the check with a local or pay for their host’s meal in exchange for being introduced to a good dining establishment.


OodyMate 3.1.1 is completely free of charge (free from advertisements) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Travel category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

HistoryHound searches History and Bookmarks in Multi-Browsers

St. Clair Software releases HistoryHound 2.1.1 for macOS. It lets you search the content of all web sites you’ve visited recently, plus all the pages you’ve bookmarked. It’s a “personal web search.” Just type in a few words that you remember reading and HistoryHound will give you a list of pages you’ve viewed recently, ranked by relevance. You don’t have to remember the title of the page, which browser you were using at the time, or when you saw it – HistoryHound will find it for you. With respects to your privacy, indexing and searching is all done locally on your Mac, not in the Cloud.


This version adds support for Microsoft’s Edge browser and improves its indexing engine so it scans pages faster and more accurately. For existing users who want to use the recently-added capability to search for exact phrases, this also significantly cuts the time needed to rebuild your search index, a step that is necessary to add the feature. Also, a number of issues and bugs have been corrected.


HistoryHound 2.1.1 is a free update for existing HistoryHound users. It costs $14.95 (USD) for new users. Please see the St. Clair Software web site for screenshots, a full change log, and additional feature information.

There are no servers in between, and Numerics does not replicate the user’s data anywhere, except for on device. However, with a recent update in Google’s security policies for applications, Numerics had to go through their rigorous app approval process. As a result, customers were unable to use the integration within Numerics. Cynapse has worked with Google to get all app flows approved and Numerics 6.1 has fixed the integrations with all Google services.

  • Scale images in Photoshop to match their dimensions in Illustrator
  • Change image resolution to 300 dpi
  • Convert RGB images to specific ICC profile
  • Resave PNG files as TIFF
  • Sharpen images and run Photoshop actions


In the end of processing ArtOptimizer reimports images to Illustrator at 100% in their precise position. As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually. In addition, ArtOptimizer helps users accelerate document printing and exporting to PDF, speed up file transfer to service providers, reduce job turnaround, and cut costs through faster processing.


ArtOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix web site for $120 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers and Adobe Exchange. Licensed users of earlier versions can upgrade to ArtOptimizer 3 for $60.
