[prMac.com] Casselberry, Florida - Econ Technologies updates ChronoSync to version 4.5. This major update includes an all new Document Organizer, support for Apple's Notification Center, 64-bit performance, and over 100 additional new features. ChronoSync is a Mac app that can synchronize, backup, and create bootable backups. ChronoSync can synchronize or backup to most anything you can connect to your Mac, including folders on your Mac, other Macs, PC's, and external drives. ChronoSync is $40 and, as always, existing users update for free. No user is ever left behind.
"The new Document Organizer enables you to create, run, edit, and schedule your syncs and backups all from one window. It really provides ChronoSync users with a simple control center, whether you have one or multiple syncs or backups," said Joe Japes, Econ's Marketing Director. "The best part is we keep all of our users on the same playing field. We continue to improve ChronoSync and never charge for an update."
In addition to the Document Organizer, this update includes support for Apple's Notification Center, 64-bit processors, and Retina displays. Along with existing email alerts, you can now choose to have your sync and backup results posted directly to your desktop as Notifications. ChronoSync is now a 64-bit app, allowing access to more memory and the use of more advanced APIs and system technologies. Virtually all icons and supplemental artwork in ChronoSync 4.5 have also been optimized for high resolution (Retina) displays giving ChronoSync a new, cleaner look.
"Migrating from 32 to 64-bit and maintaining compatibility across application and OS versions was very challenging," said D. Proni, Econ's Senior Software Engineer. "We devoted a lot of time and effort into squeezing as much performance out of the program as possible."
Version 4.5 includes performance increases across the board when running bootable backups, scanning files, opening & closing ChronoSync documents, and when communicating with ChronoAgent. Most notable is the ChronoSync to ChronoAgent performance boost which provides faster scans between two Macs. ChronoAgent, the undercover operative that works with ChronoSync, is an invisible application that runs on a destination Mac and communicates directly with ChronoSync running on a source Mac. ChronoAgent replaces Apple File Sharing, providing a direct connection with full access to the destination Mac.
ChronoSync 4.5 is our largest update in years. The new features do not end with the Document Organizer, Apple's Notification Center, Retina-Optimized Graphics and 64-bit performance. There are literally over 100 additional features and enhancements in ChronoSync 4.5.
