Cronette 1.0 runs Mac tasks automatically

updated 11:35 am EDT, Tue October 21, 2008

Cronette 1.0 released

Tension Software is shipping the first version of Cronette, a utility for Macs and Mac servers. The software executes a variety of tasks automatically, without any user input; tasks are organized into a master list, where users select a task to edit details. Actions can be assigned to launch daily, weekly, monthly or yearly, and as frequently as up to 10 times per day.

Sample functions include opening a script, document, program or URL, running Unix commands, or performing common system functions such as sleep or shutdown. All tasks are run in the background, though the program holds on to information such as schedules and any error diagnostics. A license for Cronette costs $30.
