MacXDVD Software Announces Significant Upgrade to MacX MediaTrans 6.3

MacXDVD Software has released a significant upgrade to MacX MediaTrans 6.3. Customers already have the most advanced solution to transfer, backup, delete and manage iPhone photos (videos, music, books, and other data), and now they can enjoy a major boost in speed with the latest Version 6.3. With an incredible average photo transferring speed of 0.03s per image, users can enjoy a speed increase of 38% than before.


All existing users can upgrade to the last version for free and new users can enjoy a 50% discount during MacXDVD’s official Halloween Offer.


Before the upgrade, users have already benefited from the super-fast speed – case in point, 8 seconds to transfer 100 4k photos. Now, V6.3 gains 38% photo transferring speed increase, being able to transfer 1000 photos within 30 seconds only. Users who suffer from performance lag, keep paying monthly fees for cloud storage, or have gigabytes of pictures to backup can offload iPhone memories instantly, all in one click.


In addition, Version 6.3 takes the photo management capabilities even further, extending the photo album categories to cover Recently Deleted, Favorite, Live Photos, Animated album, etc. The upgrade also answers a longstanding complaint – users can now export both edited and original versions of iPhone photos (Live Photos incl.) instead of being smarting over the limitation that they can only export the edited (cropped/filtered) iPhone photos in unedited original form with an AAE file.

DEVONagent 3.11 Reorganizes Search Sets and Brings Mojave Compatibility

DEVONtechnologies updates all editions of its smart research tool DEVONagent. The update brings compatibility to macOS Mojave, reorganized search sets, and updated search plugins. New plugins becoming available are installed and updated automatically. The update for all three editions of DEVONagent is free and recommended for all users.


DEVONagent is DEVONtechnologies’ web research solution for the Mac. It finds information searching multiple sources in one go and applying powerful filters to the retrieved data. The presented results can be further processed and saved to the internal archive or handed over to other applications, e.g. DEVONthink. DEVONagent also offers a range of automating options to run searches unattended. It adds found data to the user’s archive or send reports by email.


Sophisticated research tools, AI-based techniques that handle even the largest result sets, and a high degree of integration and automation make DEVONagent the #1 web research tool on the Mac for scientists, lawyers, engineers, and educators.

* Get pre-filtered, organized results from many sources
* View and analyze the results the way you want
* Create reports in many formats
* Save searches so you can continue later
* Run searches unattended to stay up-to-date on important subjects


New in DEVONagent 3.11:
Version 3.11 reorganizes search sets into groups. Search sets store search settings, plugins, sites, and more that can be quickly reused for similar searches. Grouping them allows to create more search sets for various use cases without cluttering menus or losing track.


In addition, version 3.11 updates the Mac News, Mac Software, and Marketing example search sets, the Qwant, Yandex, Google Blog Search, Google Patent and various world news plugins. The Thumbnail Galleries scanner received an overhaul as well. Plugins connect DEVONagent to search engines; scanners post-process the search results by e.g. looking for images, RSS feeds, webcams, or thumbnail galleries.


New search sets and plugins can be automatically installed and updated now as they become available. DEVONagent Pro 3.11 also cleans up the editor for search sets by combining the Advanced and Exclude tabs.


Search sets are part of what makes DEVONagent Pro powerful for professional researchers. Whatever the topic for the search is, search sets run them on multiple search engines, add some sites to crawl to the mix, and post-filter the results. And they are where automation happens: DEVONagent Pro can run search sets regularly, archive them, hand them over to AppleScript scripts, or deliver them to, e.g., DEVONthink. With this release we’ve made it even easier to work with search sets tailored at even the most specialized needs,” comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.


Other improvements in DEVONagent Pro 3.11 include better automatic selection of web page content, improved keyboard navigation in lists, and enhanced VoiceOver support. The new version also handles RSS feeds more efficiently, and filters and retrieves links better. It also uses the rendered web page, instead of the underlying HTML code, as a more accurate source for See Also, translation, and scripting. Finally, version 3.11 uses a new web service for generating web page thumnails and fixes some bugs and minor issues.


The updates for all three editions of DEVONagent are free for existing users and highly recommended.


* DEVONagent Pro: US $49.95 (App Store: $49.99)
* DEVONagent Express: US $4.95 (App Store: $4.99)
* DEVONagent Lite: free
