Modesitt Software has released BackTrack 3.0, an application designed to bring Mac users a new level of safety by logging all text typed from all applications. Logged information includes the application name, window name, date as well as time, and how long the window was active as the front window. "Suppose you're working on a Microsoft Word document, you haven't saved the document for awhile, and Word crashes. Normally you would have lost all the text you typed since your last save, however, since the text is also in the BackTrack file, the text you typed has been saved. Simply copy the text from BackTrack to the clipboard, and paste it onto your Word document," says Modesitt Software. BackTrack 3.0 is available for $15, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
