TOKYO (MacHouse) – We have good news and bad news. Bad news is that a huge typhoon is headed to the direction of our neighborhood. Good news is that we submitted the 3rd software title of the month to Mac App Store about an hour ago. This new software title is called fileAbouts.

fileAbouts is a desktop application that lets you keep track of files and folders. If you want to keep track of a file, we know that we can add it to the sidebar except that it can go away if it comes from a remote volume. fileAbouts won’t lose any of files or folders even if they come from a remote volume that is not currently mounted. Besides, you can create as many fields (the field to fileAbouts is the playlist to iTunes) as necessary, which makes it easy for users to organize files and folders that they frequently access.

Version history

Note: Release dates are ones when updates are announced here, not when updates are actually released at Mac App Store. We make no promise that they will be accepted by iTunes Connect and then released at Mac App Store.

1.1.0 (October 2, 2013)

  1. A second table appears to the left showing the contents of the folder the user selects inside the file browser.
  2. Right-clicking on the name of a file or a folder in the second list, the user can reveal that file or folder.
  3. The application takes a better approach in detecting whether or not the selected file item is a folder and not a package.
