Performance enhancements, new features
App4mac has announced updates to its project management app, Projector, as well as the online backup utility, Twin. Projector provides tools for keeping track of tasks and calculating project costs. The latest version has been completely rewritten in Objective C 2.0 for improved performance and enhanced 64-bit support. The update also features a redesigned user interface and a new engine optimized for both small and large projects.
Projctor 2 offers improvements to the process management and resource management features, while allowing users to integrate to-do lists. New options have been added for managing hours, days and global cost, amongst hundreds of other small improvements.
Twin provides tools for configuring data backups, using either web-based services or local drives. Version 1.2 features upgrades to its core engine for enhanced performance, while adding support for FTP servers, AFP servers, and Apple's latest Snow Leopard operating system. New user-feedback options have been included, with an overlay window displayed on top of the screen, and additional preferences are available for managing larger backups.
Both apps require Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and are available as free downloads for all owners of existing licenses. New users can download either program from the app4mac website, with Projector 2 available for an introductory price of $75 until the end of December. Twin 1.2 can also be downloaded by new users for $75.
