Hyperbolic Software's utility app, Tidy Up!, has been updated with the release of Version 3. Tidy Up! can search for duplicate files and packages so users can eliminate unneeded information. Improvements to the latest version include a new user interface, as well as the ability to search for duplicate folders by content or in preferred playlists and albums. Prioritization is now available, with customization options featuring 'Smart Baskets', that sort files based on criteria input. Requiring OS X 10.6.6 or greater, Tidy up! 3 is currently available for $30 for new users, and $20 for those running version 2.0 or later.
Bluetooth Low Energy keyfob Sesame secures Mac while unattended
Atama, a UK start-up that focuses on app-enabled products, released its Mac security product Sesame, a Bluetooth Low Energy keyfob with companion application. Enabling users to secure their Mac whenever they leave the computer, the small Bluetooth 4.0 keyfob engages a system screensaver from inside a pocket. This prevents others from accessing files or any open applications, and automatically unlocks when the user returns. Sesame also supports two-step authentication with the option to enable a system password to unlock. Available for pre-order with free shipping, Sesame is currently priced at $40.
