DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1 Adds Performance and Search Enhancements

DEVONtechnologies updates its desktop search assistant DEVONsphere Express with performance-related enhancements and AFPS support. It also works better with ePub books and searches PDF annotations and forms. The update to version 1.9.1 is free and recommended for all users.


DEVONsphere Express is DEVONtechnologies’ desktop search assistant. It runs as a menulet and indexes documents and other data in the background with the same AI-based technology used in DEVONthink and DEVONagent. Unlike traditional search utilities DEVONsphere Express is highly context-aware. It focuses automatically on what the user is working on and finds related documents, email messages, web pages, and more.


* Find other items related to what you’re working on
* Search like with Spotlight on steroids
* Context-aware, always focuses on what you do
* Runs as a menu extra, always available


What’s new in DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1: The update to version 1.9.1 brings many performance-related improvements, especially when indexing large numbers of documents. DEVONsphere Express also works better with the AFPS filesystem which Apple started using in macOS High Sierra. On the search side DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1 searches text in PDF annotations and forms, handles ePub books better, and improves finding related websites. Connections to Google and Bing are encrypted with SSL now. Finally, auto-completing search terms makes typing queries more comfortable. The update also enhances the overall reliability and uses less resources when building the index in the background.


“We’re all drowning in the information flood. DEVONsphere Express is one of our answers to the question how to tame it. Like Spotlight it searches your computer but it does more: it adds relations between documents, email messages, even websites. And being context-aware it doesn’t wait for you to enter a well-formulated query but proactively shows data that could be interesting” comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.


Device requirements:
* macOS Yosemite or later


Pricing and Availability:
DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1 is available world-wide for $9.95 (USD) from DEVONtechnologie’s online shop or $9.99 (USD) in the Mac App Store.

Discover Plate Tectonics With New iPad Apps From Tasa Graphic Arts, Inc.

Tasa Graphic Arts, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of three new iPad apps that provide a thorough introduction to the theory of plate tectonics.



First, the Discovering Continental Drift app introduces students to Wegener’s continental drift hypothesis. Students learn about his scientific reasoning and how he developed his hypothesis by studying fossil evidence, rock types, fit of the continents, and climate. The continental drift hypothesis provides the groundwork for learning about Earth’s dynamic surface and the theory of plate tectonics.


Next, the Probing Earth’s Interior app describes the internal structure of Earth and how that structure results in the motion of Earth’s tectonic plates. The physical properties of each of Earth’s layers are described and illustrated with drawings and animations. Students learn how scientific measurements of seismic waves were used to determine the structure of Earth’s layers.


The third app, Discovering Plate Tectonics, illustrates how studies of the ocean floor led to the discovery of seafloor spreading from oceanic ridges that occur in the middle of Earth’s major oceans. The features of the ocean floor including deep-ocean trenches, volcanic islands, and the oceanic ridge system are related to the motion of tectonic plates. Students will also learn the names and positions of Earth’s major plates. Three types of plate boundaries are introduced and illustrated with drawings and animations.


These apps encourage higher-order thinking skills; display data that requires analysis; and discuss and test various theories. “Explore” activities help students reach beyond basic facts to thoroughly understand concepts. Assessment features include thought-provoking “Notebook” questions and multiple-choice quizzes; student’s answers can be shared or printed.


These apps also correlate to these Next Generation Science Standards for Earth Science:
* ESS2.A: Earth Materials and Systems
* ESS2.B: Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions
* ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth


Pricing and Availability:
* Discovering Continental Drift is $2.99 USD
* Probing Earth’s Interior is $1.99 USD
* Discovering Plate Tectonics is $2.99 USD
* Available worldwide exclusively through Apple’s App Store in the Education category
