Hey guys,

Ive just released Cookie5 on the Mac App Store, and in my own store.
its on sale now for $7.99 for a short time, to allow everyone time to upgrade before putting the price back to the normal $14.99.

Ive done it this way, as the Mac App Store doesn’t have an upgrade pricing option…

Cookie5 is a large update (hence the upgrade fee), and will require a little work to upgrade…. Cookie 5 is a FREE upgrade for those of you who purchased after Dec 1 2015. for those of you who purchased a trial version, ill be sending out updated licenses over the next couple of days. For those who purchased on the Mac App Store, please get in contact with you purchase details, and we’ll figure out a way to upgrade you. (sorry MAS customers, but once again, the MAS is seriously lacking in upgrade support)

what you will need to do to ensure a smooth upgrade is:
1. Export your favourites – you do this by (right-clicking in any of the cookies tabs to reveal the contextual menu, and selecting “Export Favourites”)
2. When running through the setup of Cookie5, on the “Choose Favorites” tab select the “Import” button, and import the file saved in step 1.

Cookie5 was virtually a complete rewrite over the past 8 months and includes the following improvements:

  • Cookie5 is El Capitan only!!
  • sandboxed for your security (…although the initial permissions dialogs may be annoying…)
  • All Browsers are now configurable individually (this means complete customisation for removal options including the timer)
  • new updated UI
  • new default combined view containing all cookie types (cookies/databases/Flash/Silverlight – the old Cookie4 style layout is available from the “General” tab in Preferences
  • New Preferences window
  • new option to run Cookie in headless mode from “Advanced” tab in Preferences
  • new option to flag individual cookies as favourites (available in the “General” Preferences tab)
  • Full screen support
  • many other improvements i have forgotten to mention

Xliff Editor v1.1.1 update

Hey guys,
v 1.1.1 of Xliff Editor is now available on the Mac App Store.
I discovered a bug in my code for changing the Target Language of Xliff Files, and have now fixed this. I have also added support for the tag, so those of you with Xliff Files which include these tags, will now be able to edit the Target string.

I have many improvements planned, and after the release of Cookie 5, will have more time available to work on some of these.

Cookie v5.0m ( – Release Candidate!!!

I think Cookie5 is stable enough now for release. I’ll just wait a few days for feedback, please let me know if any serious bugs are found. All new features will go in v5.1. The update is available here as always.

There is a small gotcha with the latest update all beta testers need to be aware of. Flash favourites have been rewritten, and will need to be unselected, re-selected!

And of course, heres the list of fixes/improvements/changes:

  • Fixed an issue where Removal tab was drawn incorrectly on first run
  • Fixed issue with incorrect tabs showing on first run
  • Fixed “jumping” of tabs when toggling between combined/non-combined favs view
  • Fixed expansion state of favorites when changing tabs/toggling favorites
  • Fixed Opera Flash cookies
  • Fixed an issue with favorites on All tab from disabled Browsers
  • Fixed an issue with domain tracking cookie count only being colored if domain is favorited
  • Fixed an issue with removal of Safari Search History
  • Added a warning dialog when removing permissions from Advanced tab
  • Reworded preference “Display Favorites on Separate tabs” to “Manage Cookie types separately”

Thanks to all the people who provided feedback!

Updates! Xliff Editor v1.1, and USBClean v1.2

Hi guys,
I’ve released a couple of minor updates for two of my apps:
Xliff Editor

Xliff Editor $4.99
does exactly what the name implies, and allows you to easily edit XLIFF files without having to get your hands dirty in XML. v1 was built with the Xcode format in mind, and the latest v1.1 update focuses on adding wider support for the XLIFF v1.2 spec. Heres the full list of improvements:

  • improved XLIFF v1.2 support
  • support for files containg CDATA
  • better error handling
  • ui tweaks

USBClean 99c
also appropriately named (i think), USBClean removes all junk and ghost files from your external USB drives. Particularly useful for those of us that need to share files with Windows users!

  • removed limitation to only parse volumes of certain type
  • small ui tweaks

both apps are currently only available in the Mac App Store.

WiFiSpoof 2.2.5 update

hey guys,

Ive just released a minor update to WiFiSpoof. Since updating my site to using the secure https protocol which is required by El Capitan, all my apps now also need to be updated to check for updates at the new secure appcast. On systems prior to El Capitan this isn’t really an issue, but El Cap users may need to download the update manually to receive further updates.

as always you can get WiFiSpoof, here or here.

Also, after I get Cookie5 released, ill give WifiSpoof more attention, and add some requested features.
