iCloud woes

Several customers have reported the sudden disappearance of snippet files stored in iCloud.

So far, we haven’t managed to reproduce this issue on our test devices so we don’t know what causes it, let alone how to fix it (should it indeed turn out to be a defect in our code).

Meanwhile, please make sure you keep a regular backup of your snippets file so you can easily restore it should it suddenly disappear.

See this FAQ item:

If you find a reproducible step-by-step set of actions that leads to your snippets file disappearing from iCloud, please do email support@ettoresoftware.com as we would really like to work with you to stop this from ever happening.

Thanks in advance for any help you may provide and apologies if our software has unwittingly caused you to lose data and time.

TypeIt4Me 5.3.1 now available in Mac App Store

After 16 days waiting for review, TypeIt4Me 5.3.1 is finally available in the Mac App Store.
Remember that the *only* extra feature in 5.3.x vs 5.2.x is iCloud support, which can *only* be offered in apps sold in the Mac App Store (Apple’s rules, not ours).

To celebrate the release and allow any of our long standing, loyal users to upgrade to 5.3.1 without paying full price again, we are going to drop the price on the Mac App Store to $4.99 for a limited time. That’s a whopping 75% off and is even cheaper than the $8.99 we normally charge for upgrades.

If you need/want iCloud support, which works great with the companion TypeIt4Me Touch app on iPhone and iPad, now is the time to head to the Mac App Store and grab a copy for yourself and perhaps a gift one (or two) for your friends.

 

TypeIt4Me 5.3 is now available (*only* in the Mac App Store).

TypeIt4Me version 5.3 is now available to download from the Mac App Store.  As promised, this latest version includes iCloud support, so you can use your TypeIt4Me abbreviations seamlessly across all your Macs – and with TypeIt4Me Touch on your iPad or iPhone. You’ll notice there’s a new pane just above your TypeIt4Me clippings that enables you to manage your local abbreviation sets and drag them across to iCloud and back again as you see fit:

A note for customers who purchase TypeIt4Me outside of the Mac App Store:

Apple currently only permits applications sold through the Mac App Store to access iCloud, so for now, the incarnation of TypeIt4Me available for direct download from the Ettore Software website will remain at version 5.2.1 rather than 5.3. That’s while we evaluate options for adding some form of access to iCloud, for example via a ‘helper’ application made available separately on the Mac App Store.
