Folx was named No. 1 of torrent clients for Mac!

Posted by Alex Taylor on January 27th, 2016

Folx Download ManagerThe source http://vpnpick.com/ listed their rating of the best torrent clients for Mac based on their testing. Have a look at the best of the best list:

Folx

Folx is very easy to use with the most optimal features. With Folx you can do whatever you need to without being overwhelmed with unnecessary stuff. You can create and download torrents, schedule your downloads and prioritize them, set up the limits for download and upload speed. No worries, Folx supports various options, it can download via magnet links and search through multiple torrent trackers at a time without even leaving the app in PRO version. It is really easy to manage your downloaded content with Folx by assigning tags to files according to a criteria set by you. PRO version also supports automatic adding of downloaded music and videos to iTunes playlists in accordance with assigned tags.

Transmission

Transmission is another great choice for torrent downloading. This torrent client is free to download and native to Mac. It has a really cool web server feature that will let you access Transmission when you are at a remote location.

Vuze

Vuze is also easily one of the best torrent clients for Mac and is also extremely popular across several platforms. Vuze is rich with features and has a ton of configuration options that uTorrent doesn’t offer.

qBittorrent

A really great option among Mac OS X torrent clients. It is pretty fast and offers the same functionality as uTorrent. It supports tasks prioritization, remote access and control, a built-in media player, etc.

uTorrent

This is of course one of the most popular Bittorrent downloaders across multiple platforms. Unfortunately a lot of reports surfaced warning that uTorrent is becoming unsafe with more recent updates. But you can still find older streamlined, lightweight versions that don’t weigh down the performance and downloading speed.

As a Summary
uTorrent is undoubtedly the most popular client. However there are really worthy alternatives for Mac OS X that are stable, fast, and reliable. Plus some of them offer features that uTorrent lacks. It is up to you to find the best match for you and your downloads.

  • a daemon startup bug on Ubuntu 14.10;
  • Android 5.X binary incompatibilities;

Our Plans for Typeeto

Posted by Alex Taylor on January 13th, 2016

Hello!

Here we are – to share our latest plans for Typeeto with you.

First, you would most probably know that due to Sony proprietary system limitations there are issues with SonyPlaystation 3 & 4 support. None of us, third party developers, have managed to figure out a way to go about it yet. We have been working on resolving the issue and this remains our top priority for the near future.

Second, since the latest upgrade, as you might have already noticed, iOS does not allow using CMD + Space keyboard to change an input language. Fn key is to be pressed instead; this brings up the language menu. However the key has its own functionality, and intercepting it seems to be not a very straightforward matter. So, language switching in iOS 9 is another issue we will address in our next release.

And the last, many of you have reported incompatibility with Apple TV 4th generation. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about it, as at the moment Apple TV does not support bluetooth keyboards. Typeeto works perfectly fine though with Apple TV of 2nd and 3rd generations.
And we can’t help but share the news with you. The much awaited first beta version of tvOS 9.2 is to be released soon. The updated OS brings in a lot of new handy features, among them is support for Bluetooth keyboard. So Typeeto will become compatible with Apple TV 4 pretty soon, and you can make use of all the advantages it offers.

Well, that’s it for now! Hope you found the update to be useful. Do let us know if you have any questions or requests, we would be happy to hear from you at support@eltima.com.
To stay tuned, please subscribe to our pages on Twitter and Facebook!

Swordbox – keep your passwords secure.

Posted by Alex Taylor on November 26th, 2015

sb-blog

Hello everyone!

Today we are happy to announce new project we are enthusiastically working on – Swordbox. We are working on this awesome and easy password manager to help you keep your personal data secure, properly stored, and easily accessible from all your devices. We think Swordbox is going to be the most reliable method to organize and manage login details.

With Swordbox you can be sure that passwords are safe, because its database is sophisticated and encrypted and nobody but you has access to your information. Only you have a master key to access the data and two-step verification prevents illegal connection attempts. Swordbox stores information on secure and trusted Dropbox servers and locks the database after certain inactivity period. This all makes information leak a myth.

Moreover, Swordbox is a multi-platform application, supporting Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android operating systems. This means that you can keep all your devices in sync with a single password database.

We can assure you that Swordbox is a long-term project that will be supported and constantly improved in future. We are already planning to extend its functionality by adding other cloud services to store your passwords, e.g.: One Drive, Google Drive, and our own online servers.
