Notable apps and updates, Feb. 11

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they’re popular and deserve mention. Here are today’s picks.


Econ Technologies says that both ChronoSync and ChronoAgent have been updated to address issues under macOS 11, Big Sur. 

ChronoSync is the multipurpose Mac app for local and cloud backup, bootable backup, and folder synchronizing. It’s been updated to work better with macOS Big Sur. Problems such as changes in alias resolution and APFS target identification under Big Sur have been addressed. Also, the Bootable Backup Setup Assistant better guides users to the Big Sur Bootable Backup Tech Note. Other changes in this release improve stability and reliability, correct some cosmetic glitches under Big Sur, and fix some minor bugs.

ChronoAgent is the companion app to ChronoSync. It runs on the destination Mac and connects directly to ChronoSync on the source Mac. It’s been updated to address issues starting up under macOS Big Sur on Apple Silicon Macs.

ChronoSync is designed to work on macOS 10.11 and newer and costs US$49.99. Owners of ChronoSync can install the update immediately for free. A 15-day demo is available for download.

One is also available for ChronoAgent; registration for it is $14.99.

CS Odessa has announced a PM Mind Maps and Tables solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and MINDMAP apps for macOS and Windows. 

The new business solution allows project management professionals to document project data that help them visually organize resources and technologies. Professionals engaged to project scope management and project planning can use these graphic tools for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and ConceptDraw MINDMAP to design some sorts of visual project documents including mind maps, RACI, or RACIQ matrices, tables, and presentations based on pre-designed templates and samples.

The suite of three products found in ConceptDraw OFFICE 7 is designed for knowledge workers, project managers, managers, and academics and retails for $299 per end user license. The suite requires macOS 10.14 or higher.
