Automatically Track Miles With Swift Miles

Tekton Technologies today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Swift Miles – Mileage Tracker 1.4.4, an important update to their popular mileage tracker app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The App automatically tracks users’ mileage, simplifying the process of collecting business mileage information for the annual IRS tax deduction. The App also uses the latest IRS mileage rates for calculating deductions.

 

 

Swift Miles can automatically track mileage, provide accurate route maps for business trips, and create convenient reports in PDF or CSV format with just a tap. The app simplifies mileage tracking, providing automatic trip detection and mileage tracking, and automatic classification based on the user’s past trips. All of this happens automatically in the background, while also consuming less battery power.

 

Key Features Include:
* Automatic mileage tracking – Tracks and logs mileage automatically in the background
* Tax deduction – Uses the latest IRS mileage rates for deductions
* Accurate route maps – Plots the actual route taken on a map
* Auto-classify trips – Classify trips as business, charity, medical, or personal
* Track trip expenses with image receipts for each trip
* Custom reports – Email detailed trip reports in PDF or CSV format.
* Low battery consumption, thanks to optimized tracking algorithms

 

Battery consumption is always a worry when using functions like GPS in the background. Swift Miles uses optimized algorithms designed to limit the iPhone’s GPS usage and surprisingly, the App consumes very little battery power.

 

Users receive a 2-week free trial of the app’s automatic trip detections and unlimited miles. Afterwards, the free version of the app will provide 100 miles per month of automatic trip detections and tracking. A convenient in-app purchase unlocks unlimited automatic mileage tracking.

Swift Miles – Mileage Tracker 1.4.4 is free and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Finance category. Convenient in-app purchases are available to enable unlimited automatic mileage tracking, $47.99 per year for annual subscriptions or $5.99 per month for monthly subscriptions.

Station 2.6 is the Multilevel Dock Replacement for macOS

True North Software today is very proud to announce the release of Station 2.6, the company’s multilevel (hierarchical) launcher for macOS. Station promotes a more natural organization of applications and documents into folders. With nested folders, you can arrange items in Station in a way that fits your workflow with an uncluttered look and feel. Scalability is greatly increased through logical groupings thus increasing the sheer number of items that can be added to Station without having to shrink the launcher size.

 

 

Productivity is increased because related items can be grouped together into a single folder. For example, one folder can contain work related items and another folder gaming items. Another useful feature of Station is the ability to launch, all at once, the items in a launch folder. This is useful when switching between tasks like business and spreadsheets to graphics work. With ten levels of folders available, enough space is provided to spread out even the most diverse set of applications and documents.

 

Station has been quickly evolving through new features and enhancements over the past several releases and version 2.6 continues that growth. Many customers looking for an alternative for DragThing have found a new home with Station.

 

What’s New for Version 2.6:

New Features:
* Bookmark files (Finder aliases) are supported
* Web URLs from programs like Safari are supported
* Dropping files on a Finder folder in Station will now move or copy the files to the actual Finder folder
* Added a utility menu item to delete all items in the current panel set

 

Enhancements:
* Enhancements to file resolution
* Bug fixes

 

Pricing and Availability:
Station 2.6 is priced at $14.99 (USD) and is available through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category. A demo version is available from the True North Website. For more information, please contact Brendan Murphy.

DEVONthink 3.0 Public Beta Now Available for Mac

DEVONtechnologies today releases the first public beta of DEVONthink 3.0 for Mac. The popular smart document and information manager receives a complete user interface overhaul. It now comes with support for dark mode, an extended search language, and a new menu extra for capturing notes and more. Version 3.0 also adds custom metadata and tables with typed data and form views. Office users can add imprints to PDFs and images, use the improved OCR engine, and share databases via the rewritten web interface. Smart rules and reminders make DEVONthink 3 easier to automate than ever before.

 

 

DEVONthink is DEVONtechnologies’ document and information management solution. It supports a large variety of file formats and stores them in a database enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI). Many document formats can be directly viewed, edited, and annotated. A powerful search language finds documents in an instant, smart groups keep them always at hand.

 

Sophisticated organization tools, AI-based techniques that handle even the largest collections, and numerous integration options make DEVONthink the work environment of choice for researchers, lawyers, and educators. Smart rules, flexible reminders, and deep AppleScript support allow automating even complex repeating tasks. And with its fast, reliable, and secure synchronization users keep their data available on all their Macs.

 

DEVONthink To Go for iPad and iPhone completes the DEVONthink ecosystem.

* Keep your data together in one place
* Scan your paper, archive your email
* Let artificial intelligence help you organize your data
* Automate tasks with smart rules and reminders
* Sync your data to all your devices, fast and secure
* Share your data with anyone, whether they use Mac or PC

 

New in DEVONthink 3.0:
The long-awaited third DEVONthink generation debuts, quite literally, hundreds of new features and improvements.

 

As the most obvious change, DEVONthink 3.0 brings a completely overhauled user interface including support for macOS Mojave’s dark mode. It follows a modern single-window design that integrates many elements that used to appear in separate windows.

 

An extended sidebar gives access to databases, favorites, smart groups, smart rules, and filters as well as to a new reading list, import options, and more. Inspectors present metadata about documents and groups, offer AI assistance, and let the user set reminders or search within the document.

 

Capturing text, audio, and voice notes, screenshots, or web clippings becomes much easier with the redesigned Sorter. It also allows finding groups in all open databases for adding files or data from other apps via drag-and-drop. The Sorter is available as a menu bar extension or a tab docked to the side of the screen.

 

More subtle are the numerous changes to the search engine which now better supports Asian languages, indexes also PDF and RTF attachments, and highlights search hits more precisely. Its enhanced search language allows prefixes for mouse-less specific searching, and filters quickly focus the displayed items on tags, dates, marks, or geolocation.

 

For the office environment DEVONthink 3 brings a new 64-bit optimized OCR engine that supports multiple CPU cores, Asian languages, barcode detection, and multiple output formats. It’s now possible to add custom imprints to images and PDFs including placeholder text and Bates numbering.

 

The rewritten web interface gives coworkers or clients access to the document databases even when they’re not using a Mac. User accounts and per-database permissions give fine-grained control over what web visitors see and can do. TLS support makes sure all connections are encrypted.

 

Other improvements include geolocation metadata, ratings, and custom, typed metadata that can be added to all documents and that is, of course, searchable. When importing documents metadata can be converted to tags, and images can be automatically tagged using machine learning.

 

Markdown and HTML documents can be edited side-by-side with a rendered preview, sheets with tabular data support specific data types and have a form view. Formatting and editing bars keep frequently used tools at hand and adding cross-references has become more versatile with improved WikiLinking and support for the square bracked syntax. DEVONthink 3 now also supports EPUB ebooks and, useful for research, collects highlighted search hits and metadata into summary documents.

 

Last but not least, DEVONthink 3 massively extends its automation options. Smart rules perform actions based on events and search queries, where events can be anything from a scheduled time to the arrival of a newly imported document. Users can also attach one-time or repeating reminders to any document. They support several alarm options including running scripts. Placeholders insert dynamic data in templates, imprints, or smart rules without requiring any programming skills.

 

Of course, DEVONthink 3 brings a large number of under-the-hood enhancements. To name just a few: better file system integration for indexed files, better background processing, e.g. for email archiving, indexing, or generating thumbnails, and an improved overall performance.

 

Availability and Pricing:
DEVONthink 3 is available in three editions for different needs and budgets: regular, Pro, and Server. DEVONthink 3 can be downloaded for free from the DEVONtechnologies website. The public beta does not require a valid license key but to use email archiving and text recognition beyond the trial limits it needs to be properly licensed. After the public beta phase DEVONthink 3 will require a license key for one of the three available editions which can be purchased starting today:

* DEVONthink 3: US $99
* DEVONthink Pro 3: US $199
* DEVONthink Server 3: US $499

DEVONthink 3 is currently not available in the App Store but will become so after the public beta phase. The former DEVONthink Personal and DEVONnote editions have been retired.

Heartener for Apple Watch Now Available in App Store

Independent developer, Mark S. Morris is today announcing the release of Heartener 1.0, his free new lifestyle app for Apple Watch. Heartener lets you hear the effects of meditation and exercise on your heart rate, or eliminate distracting thoughts while trying to fall asleep by focusing only on the sound of your heart. Heartener does not require an account to work and has no hidden fees or in app purchases. Heartener only uses your heart rate data on your devices, it does not transmit any information off the devices, and contains no analytics keeping track of your actions within the app.

 

 

Heartener uses the heart rate sensors on your Apple Watch to translate your heart rate into a sound that is played on the iPhone paired with the Watch. If your heart rate moves outside a range you select on the app, a very loud siren alert will automatically sound. You can also manually trigger this alert sound from your Watch or on the companion app running on your iPhone.

 

Heart rate information is transmitted to your iPhone every 3-5 seconds, and a heartbeat sound effect is played when this data update arrives. The pitch of the heart beat sound is lower for slower heart rates, and gets higher as the heart rate increases. The color of the heart rate text display varies from green to bright orange depending on the heart rate beats per minute.

 

To begin the Heartener session, first open Heartener on your iPhone. Open Heartener on your Watch, and tap Activate. You’ll get voice confirmation the session has begun, and within a few seconds the first heart rate data will be transmitted. To end the session, tap De-Activate on your Watch, and your phone will give you voice confirmation the session has ended.

 

Heartener requires your authorization as a Health Source on your iPhone to function. Heartener will not function if the Watch paired iPhone is locked or in sleep mode; Auto-Lock in Settings has to be set to Never during Heartener sessions. For workout or meditation sessions, set Require Passcode to After 1 hour or After 4 hours.

 

For sleeping / overnight use, Passcode has to be disabled completely and the iPhone left awake and unlocked. It is recommended the iPhone be plugged into a power source for overnight usage. Alerts will not sound unless the iPhone is awake. All other functionality requires iPhone to be awake also.

 

Pricing and Availability:
Heartener 1.0.0 is free and available worldwide on the App Store in the Lifestyle category.
