A Drove of Recent Updates

In the past few weeks we've seen Apple release iTunes 10.5, iOS 5 and the new iPhone 4S. Not long before those updates, they also released OS X 10.7, Lion. So basically, they changed everything. Not surprisingly, these changes put a few kinks in some of our programs while we scrambled to update them. Now, we're happy to report, after tons of updates across the board, everything is back on track and all of our programs should now work with Apple's recent drove of updates.

With that said, please make sure you're using the most recent version of our programs. All of our programs have auto-updaters built-in, but looking at the crash reports that have been submitted lately, it seems some of you may be skipping these updates and thus stuck using a version that is incompatible with Apple's recent changes. Please make sure you're up to date. If you're not sure, then please redownload the program from our webpage and reinstall it.

Here is the list of our programs for which our recent updates are most important.

Phone to Mac -

The newest version of Phone to Mac now supports parsing iTunes backups from iOS 5 devices. Stay tuned for even more updates and optimizations in support of Apple's latest iDevice.
