[prMac.com] Billings, Montana - Positive Spin Media is pleased to announce Pandora 2.4, an update to the media collector's web spider and search agent for Mac OS X. Pandora makes it quick and easy to find and fetch images, movies, media, and more from the web. This release introduces dramatic speed increases that drive more results in less time. In user testing, increases of up to 50% were reported over the previous version while running on the same hardware.
Top Features in Pandora 2.4:
* Powerful engine: fast, flexible performance with improved logging and pause/resume capabilities
* Support for finding and fetching any filetype
* Plug-in architecture: Pandora can be extended to work with any website or search engine, and support authentication
Pandora can simultaneously perform as many tasks as it's given. Multiple sessions can, at the same time, be performing searches, URL scrapes, or even running through folders on your hard drive, via "Open..." in the "File" menu.
Power Tools for the Power User:
Pandora's preferences allow users to specify various filtering options such as minimum file size, file type, safe Google(TM) search and more. Users can also choose where Pandora stores files on their hardrives and even make sure files are clearly represented with a thumbnail icon a la Photoshop.
* Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or higher
* ATI Radeon or NVidia GeForce card (or better) is recommended for proper use of the slideshow feature
* Connection to the Internet
