Update on 9/29/16: File Cabinet Pro is now also available on the Mac App Store. The information provided in this post is now outdated.
You can view the original post below.
File Cabinet has been released on the Mac App Store. As you may already know, we have been selling File Cabinet Pro here at AppTyrant dot com since late September. Before you purchase either version of the app, you should be aware of the differences between the Mac App Store version and the non-Mac App Store version.
The Mac App Store version is being sold at a lower price than the Pro version because the Pro version has more features. Mainly, File Cabinet Pro allows you to set up a folder in iCloud Drive, but File Cabinet on the Mac App Store does not support iCloud at all.
Update on January 10th, 2016:
Starting in version 1.5, you can now change the local directory File Cabinet displays in both the Mac App Store version and the Pro version. The paragraph below no longer is true.
Also, File Cabinet Pro’s local folder lives inside your Documents folder on your Mac, while File Cabinet’s local folder lives within a specialized Documents folder that OS X gives sandboxed apps by default. The Documents folder OS X gives Sandboxed apps by default is not user-facing in the Finder (it is within ~/Library/Containers/com.Writes-for-All-Inc.Junk.Drawer/Data/Documents/File Cabinet). However, you can easily navigate to the Documents folder in the Mac App Store version by right-clicking on a file in File Cabinet’s user-interface and selecting “Show In Finder” in the pop up menu.
Finally, File Cabinet Pro receives updates faster than the Mac App Store version because we do not have to wait for App Store approval.
You may still wish to purchase the Mac App Store version instead of the Pro version for the following reasons:
1) You don’t plan on using iCloud Drive.
2) You like updating your software through the Mac App Store.
3) The Mac App Store version is cheaper and you want to save some bucks.
The chart below highlights the main differences between File Cabinet Pro and File Cabinet.
Easy Image Reflection version 1.3 has been pushed to the Mac App Store.
The Easy Image Reflection action extension now works with Mail. As of OS X Yosemite, Mail works with image action extensions differently than other OS X applications, so a workaround needed to be implemented.
If you already purchased Easy Image Reflection 2, you can head to the Mac App Store and update now. If you have not bought Easy Image Reflection 2 you can purchase it here.
Today I have released Image Extractor for Microsoft Word Documents on the Mac App Store. Image Extractor for Microsoft Word Documents allows you to extract all the images out of your Microsoft Word document files (.docx and .doc files). All you have to do is drag and drop a .docx or .doc file on to the window and Image Extractor for Microsoft Word Documents will begin scanning the document for images.
Why use it?
Most text editors on Mac OS X do not fully support Microsoft Word file formats. Most of the document converter apps out there on Mac strip out all the images from Word document files if you try to convert it to another format (like textutil). If you have a Word document and you want to extract all the images out, you can do it now without having to buy expensive software.
Today I have released PDF Image Xtractor on the Mac App Store! PDF Image Xtractor is a tool that allows you to extract all the images out of a PDF file (you guessed it!). All you have to do is drag and drop a PDF file on to the window and PDF Image Xtractor will begin scanning the document for images.
You can even have PDF Image Xtractor look for images in a specific page range. So if you have a 300 page PDF file and you only want to get the images on page 4 through 16, PDF Image Xtractor allows you to do that.
Once PDF Image Xtractor is done scanning your PDF file for images, it will present an image gallery-like user interface showing you all the images it has found. You can save extracted images as PNG, JPG, BMP, or TIFF.
If you need to get images out of a PDF file, this tool will save you tons of time! You can get PDF Image Xtractor on the Mac App Store here!
