Do you love the Mac App Store’s fantastic selection of apps but find it frustrating for zeroing in on the apps you really need? Have you ever wished the Mac App Store had better searching, or a wish list to remember apps you are interested in without immediately purchasing them? Would you like to open multiple apps at once and compare them side by side, or quickly find apps that are on sale? Now you can do all that and more with Appcuity, the shopping assistant program that works in concert with the Mac App Store to revolutionize the entire app selection process from search to installation. (Note: This ZOT is for a lifetime subsciption to Appcuity Pro, normally $21.99.)
This short video takes you on a quick tour of Appcuity. You’ll see how you can quickly search for and sort apps by multiple criteria, how to display and compare multiple apps at the same time, how to find the best new app deals, how to add apps to your wish list, how to purchase and download apps and much more.
Powerful Searching and Sorting Appcuity lets you search and rank apps by any combination of fields, including name, company, price, discount, release date, ratings and description. Searching is instant as you press each key. You can even save your favorite search and sort combinations so that you can use them again later.
Customizable Spreadsheet Interface The main app list window uses a spreadsheet like interface to make it easy to rapidly scan apps visually. The spreadsheet can display all 22 columns of available app info (including pricing, discounts, ratings, descriptions and more) or you can easily set up your own favorite arrangements.
Discount Tracking Did you know that every single day, nearly two thousand apps are on sale in the Mac App Store? The average discount is generally over 50% and some apps are even temporarily free! Appcuity makes it easy to find what’s on sale for big savings!
View Multiple Apps Simultaneously The Mac App Store only lets you see the detail for one app at a time, but Appcuity opens each app in its own separate window, making it easy to compare two or more apps side by side.
Version, Price & Top 250 History Appcuity keeps track of the version, price and ranking history for every app over time, so you can see at a glance not only where an app is now but where it has been in the past. Is this app updated frequently? How often does it go on sale? How high has it been on the top 250 sales and download charts? The answers are only a click away.
Wish List & Searchable Notes The Appcuity wish list makes it easy to keep track of apps that you are interested in but aren’t ready to buy. You can also add your own searchable notes to any application, and the Recent menu lets you jump back to any app you have recently looked at.
One Click Transfer to Mac App Store Once you’ve found an app you want, one click opens the corresponding page in the Mac App Store so that you can purchase and download the app.
RAM Based Speed Appcuity uses ProVUE’s RAM based database engine for lightning fast searching and sorting. The entire Mac App Store catalog is loaded into RAM for instant access. There’s never any delay or hiccup for disk or network access.
Press and User Comments
“Appcuity puts a whole new face on the Mac App Store … makes apps discoverable in a way that they definitely are not in Apple’s App Store interface”TidBITS.com
“digging through sales and freebies has never been easier … one wonders why Apple doesn't do these things in the official store”TUAW.com (The Unofficial Apple Weblog)
“makes searching for apps more fun and productive than the Mac App Store app”Mac360.com
I got my first Macintosh, a Mac128, in February 1984. At that time you couldn’t program on the Mac, you had to use a Lisa, so I got one of those also. I had developed a RAM based database for another 68K based computer, so I ported that to the Mac. The database, called OverVYE, started shipping in August of 1984. It was one of the very first programs available on the Mac. In September Apple flew about a dozen developers including me to a sales conference in Hawaii where we got to show our software to several thousand Apple sales reps. I also got to meet both Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.
25 years later ProVUE Development is the second oldest Mac software company â€” only Microsoft has been shipping Mac software longer than we have.
Why did you decide to write Appcuity?
Back in January I started playing with the Mac App Store and it drove me crazy. Poor searching, no sorting, no ability to compare apps, no wish list, and very hard to browse. I knew there were a lot of great apps in there that I would be interested in, but it was way to frustrating to try to find them.
I had the idea that became Appcuity right before the 2011 MacWorld Expo. I actually started writing code on the plane flight up to San Francisco. I was so excited that after the show was over each day I would go back to the room and program until 2 or 3 in the morning. By the time I went home I had an early working prototype.
Does Appcuity replace the Mac App Store?
No, instead, Appcuity is a companion to the Mac App Store. You’ll still need to use the Mac App Store to actually purchase and install software. Appcuity is similar to a search engine, but for apps instead of web pages. With Appcuity you’ll find it is much easier to find the apps you need, as well as finding apps that are great deals or just for exploring all of the brilliant apps in the Mac App Store. When you find an app you want, a single click opens the Mac App Store directly to the page for that app so that you can purchase and install it.
How does Appcuity find out what’s new in the Mac App Store?
Our servers scan Apple’s web site every evening to prepare the updated store data for the next day. (The process is very similar to the way Google scans the web for it’s search engine. The scanner was actually the first part of the program I started on the plane to San Francisco.) Once the scan is complete, we prepare a compressed update that is downloaded to your machine each day. (At the time this is being written the compressed update is about 4 megabytes each day.) In addition to tracking the current state of the store, we also keep track of changes to store data over time, allowing us to automatically identify apps that are updated or go on sale. This historical information is also included in the daily update so that you can see the price and version history of any app at a glance. This diagram shows the flow of data from the Mac App Store to the Appcuity Server to your machine.
What about iPhone and IPad apps?
This is a very frequent question. Because there are about a half million iOS apps, the RAM based approach we are using for the Mac App Store won’t work. We are thinking about how it could be adapted for iOS apps, but we haven’t decided on the best approach yet.
What else new are you planning?
We’ve got some ideas for making Appcuity even better in 2012, and in the longer term we are also planning a major revision to Panorama, our flagship RAM based database program.

ForeverSave 2 autosaves all documents you’re working on while simultaneously doing backup versioning in the background. Lost data can be quickly restored at any time.
Rewritten, 2.0, Free Upgrade.
Guys, you are the greatest.
On top, this is a kick ass shareware. Saved mine couple of time, work like magic.” (Ranxho – MacUpdate.com)
No more data loss.
Losing data, caused by application crashes or unintentional overwriting is exasperating and unnecessary. ForeverSave 2 is your new lifesaver that protects you from all kinds of disasters.
Define your preferred time interval and ForeverSave 2 automatically saves and backs up all documents you’re currently working on. Add as many applications to ForeverSave’s library as you want and you’ll no longer need to manually save any of your documents.
Restore your documents.
Each time documents are saved – either manually by yourself or automatically by ForeverSave 2 – a version of the document is created which allows you to browse through a complete version history of the documents you’ve been working on. Just pick the version you desire and ForeverSave 2 shows you a Quick Look preview of the file. Besides restoring your documents to a destination of your choice or by drag & drop, ForeverSave 2 lets you automatically replace a faulty original document by a earlier working version from the backups.
Configure ForeverSave 2 to fit your workflow.
No matter what kind of documents you’re a dealing with, a wide range of settings allow ForeverSave 2 to perfectly adapt to your personal workflow. Save disk space by excluding documents with large file sizes, limit the number of maximum versions of a document or restrict backup creation to certain file extensions, such as .txt or .psd – every individual case can be set up in ForeverSave 2.
What’s new in version 2.0
ForeverSave 2 has been completely re-written from the ground up and now features universal autosave and backup versioning for all document-based applications.
Enjoy an all new user interface that benefits from all advantages of a one-window layout. Don’t forget to check out the entirely new designed configuration center. Adjusting the autosave timer and all versioning settings takes you only a few seconds.
Decide for the better.
Since Apple introduced auto save and versions in OS 10.7 Lion, the question to be answered is obvious: Is ForeverSave 2 better than Lion’s built-in auto save/versions? Yes, it is and the following top three reasons show you why.
1. Because applications have to implement the required Lion auto save APIs before they are ready to work with the system, Lion is currently supporting only a handful of applications.
Many applications, even big players like Microsoft Office 2011 and Adobe Creative Suite CS5 are still incompatible with Lion’s auto save, whereas ForeverSave 2 works perfectly with all of them.
2. To view and restore versions of your documents in Lion, you need to have the file open in the application first. What if there is no restore button because the file itself can no longer be opened because it was accidentally deleted or overwritten? ForeverSave 2 does its job where Lion fails.
3. Lion lets you view versions of just one document at once. There is no way to browse through version histories of different documents of different applications. In contrast to ForeverSave 2, Lion’s auto save and version features aren’t any helpful when working on several projects at once.
What users say about ForeverSave 2
“This app has saved my sanity several times, I have one particular program which loves to hang or crash at the most unexpected times and the most recent auto backup has saved a lot of work and frustration. Thanks for the Free update to V.2, now I just need a new Mac running 10.6… ” (Diarbyrag – MacUpdate.com)
“Fantastic application, fast and great support. Thank you for this app.” (Hansjoerg – MacUpdate.com)
“ForeverSave is simple yet powerful. It is my “Behind the scene mac friend”. I focus on my tasks and it takes care of backing up according to my preferences. I have had to restore projects from 2 applications & ForeverSave even let me chose between a “Copy” restore and an “Original”.
Now that I have updated it to the 2.0 version I love it even more. Beautiful interface, easily customizable, very effective and reliable…the Tool Force staff is great too!” (dipa – MacUpdate.com)
“As a long time user of ForeverSave I was surprised that the update to version 2 is free. The last version saved me hours (not to say weeks) of work. Was working on a manual for over a week and the through an error the whole manual including the backup file was destroyed. After a few minutes crying and beating my monitor I remembered that I had installed ForeverSave (you never really notive that it’s working in the background). Took me just seconds to get the latest working version back and thus saved me lots of rewriting all the text. I also love that it’s possible to config each application with different settings.” (Macdefender – MacUpdate.com)
