Cookie 5.0.7 crashing!

Everyone should please update asap to v5.0.8. In the case of Mac App Store users, please avoid updating until v5.0.8 is released (hopefully tomorrow after review by Apple – I have requested an expedited review)

for users of my Store version who have already updated to v5.0.7 and are experiencing the crashing, you can update manually via this link:

my apologies to anyone affected by this bug.
🙁

many thanks to @Roller_ for help in locating and fixing the crash.

Roster v1.3 – name generator

Roster
Roster has just been updated to v1.3, it is a minor update. But I have given it a new icon, and an updated ui for El Capitan.

For those that don’t know, Roster is a simple name generator for creating lists of fictitious names. It can be useful for novelists, or budding parents looking for baby names. The output is completely customisable, for searching for that perfect name.

If anyone is wondering about the icon…. I racked my brains all day trying to find a good metaphor for a name generator… and the best (and easiest to create) was what i came up with… a triangle, and a rectangle… meant to vaguely represent a boy and a girl… haha…
🙂

I use Affinity Photo for all my design work in case anyone is wondering.

anyway, you can find Roster over at the Mac App Store:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/roster/id586140576?ls=1&mt=12

Roster is OS X 10.10+

Privatus 4.0

I am quite happy to announce the immediate availability of Privatus v4.0. Ive heard all the feedback and criticisms of v3, and made Privatus 4 into a more fully featured Cookie manager.

Privatus now has the ability (just like Cookie) to remove all (or any combination of) Browser data-types: Cookies, Flash, LocalStorage & Databases, Silverlight, Caches, History, Favicons, Webpage previews, Form values and Downloads.

You may all be wondering “so why do I need Cookie?”
….well Privatus is still a no-frills privacy manager – like pretty much every other Privacy manager you will find for sale. It deletes data in its entirety, with no option for whitelisting any data. For instance, while you can easily choose which data to delete (cookies, flash, downloads etc….), you can’t decide you only want to keep subsets of data. i.e. you can delete ALL cookies, unlike Cookie which can delete only tracking cookies, but retain all others. (useful when wanting to retain login information) What Privatus does do that makes it stand out from the rest of the no-frills cookie managers is that it doesn’t delete all your Browser Extension data. Anyone who’s had issues with Extensions nagging you to reconfigure after a “Privacy Clean” will understand the benefits to this.

Also Privatus has only one removal schedule – when you close your Browser, Privatus cleans. Cookie can do this, but also has timer schedules, and manual removal.

But for people who don’t need all the granularity and maybe even feel a little intimidated by Cookie, Privatus may be just what you need!

Download the trial, and see if it suits your needs.

Cookie and other updates

So I have finally removed Cookie4 from the front page of my site, and all focus moving forward is now on Cookie5. But don’t worry, Cookie4 is still available for purchase as Cookie5 is El Capitan only, and many people are still running the older operating systems.

Also, I have updated a couple of my other apps:
USBclean
eMail Address Extractor

Both USBclean & eMail Address Extractor were minor updates with only Support links added for convenience.
