Android Apps / Re: Checklist DC (Android app) - v1.23 Aug 20, 2018

Very nice app.

Very clearly structured an easy to use.

I especially like that it can synch with dropbox and not with google.

May I give one suggestion:
The categories will be easier to use in a hamburger menu at the left side. This way the labels have more screen estate. If a user has many categories, they will also be easier to see/select and scroll through.

It used to be a great editor. I bought a version before, but cannot remember which, in fact I don't have any documentation about it any more.

i think I will give it a try again.

The deal has been extended another day and expanded to the Premium editions too (see comment section on BDJ)

Ok, the deal is on TODAY, 19th December!!!

BitsDuJour announced: "Deal Coming Soon!"


This promotion includes the following:
Syncovery for Windows - Professional Edition ($29.95)
Syncovery for Mac - Professional Edition ($29.95)
Syncovery for Linux - Professional Edition ($29.95)
Syncovery for Mac & Windows - Pro Edition Family Pack ($59.95)

If you order the Family Pack for Windows & Mac which can be used on up to 5 computers, you are entitled to request a Linux license by emailing [email protected]

General Software Discussion / Syncovery 9 Beta1 is out
« on: October 22, 2019, 12:29 PM »
Syncovery 9 Beta1 is out here:

Major features (so  far):

Dramatic speed increase for SFTP.

SZ usage is expanding.

I can add 2 suggestions to the list:

Info Select

Super cool fast searching wonderland. But not cheap. Trial version available.


I switched to it, because I wanted to save some money over Info Select, and since I don't have a business anymore, NoteCasePro will do. But I am still using a very old version of IS, because it is so good.

NoteCasePro is also very powerful, just not as slick.

BTW, Anthony, it would be nice if you can give us some feedback.

And they just released a new version for better compatibility with the next Windows update.


Yes, it's obviously a pyramid scheme. :)

yes, if the program is already installed, SB will bring the .ini files or registry entries of the installed program back into the sandbox.

If you don't want SB to do that, you can turn it off.

See here how to do block the path to the .ini file or registry settings:

Hope this helps. :)

Sandboxie is a great program and very light on resources. I love it and I really hope that going open source will be successful for Sandboxie.

Nod5 -
It may not be exactly what you were looking for, but I usually scan to pdf, and I keep the original page as a graphic layer, and the OCR as an invisible layer below the grapic.

Then I can highlight the original text, but when I copy (Ctrl-C) get the underlying OCRed text.

This workflow also cuts down on searching for OCR mistakes, since they become less important, since I ever usually need only a very small portion of the text of the whole document. It just makes the whole thing much quicker.


ABBYY Finereader version 15 has just been released.

See enclosed pdf for ABBYY Finereader 14 and 15 feature comparison.

@VideoProc Support

Why did you quote Deozaan's post without adding any comment?

Did something got lost?

Hahaha this is how great Donationcoder is! You get help from all sides!

Thanks for posting your experience.

For DVD ripping I always use the WinX DVD Ripper Platinum software from the same publisher.

Do you have a copy of that and does it have the same bug? Maybe the DVD is partly copy protected, because I don't think VideoProc is really made for copy protected ripping.

I amended my first post to make ThunderDrive's difference in plans between storage space and bandwidth more clear.

I think physical storage space has been coming down in price, so it seems only logical that cloud spaces which of course somewhere also use physical storage space, should be getting cheaper too.

I remember Microsoft also using a similar strategy: They offered unlimited storage space in the beginning for their subscription, and now where they have become established players in that field, there terms are quite different.

So from that point of view, ThunderDrive's offering makes sense.

It does include mouse clicks (shown as a circle) and the keystrokes are shown too, f.e. if I do Alt+Enter the window menu opens and in the upper left corner the screen shows Alt+Enter in slightly transparent big letters to the viewer. You can even set it to give the mouse clicks in letters or just show the mouse clicks with a blue circle. I made a short screen capture and enclosed it for you so that you can see.

It is a really great piece of software, kept very simple and user-friendly, yet it has many well thought out features.

When you start it for the first time, it tests your graphic card to see what codecs it supports (note HEVC is H265) for encoding, decoding, what version of the codec and at what resolution. Then it shows that to you in a really nice way.

The download section supports more than 1000 video sharing sites to download your favorite music or video to your PC.

You can crop and edit and convert videos with it - remember it will work with 4K Videos too. You can also convert and reencode.

If you do the screen recording you can at the same time record your webcam so that the viewer can see you in the corner. Everything is adjustable - f.e. size and position of the webcam window, even take out your background etc.

I am totally amazed by it. It's such a big surprise to see the capabilities, because the GUI is so simple, and you think it is a very basic program, but it isn't it has stupendous capabilities, which I have never seen put into one piece of software like this.

It also can denoise or anti-shake a video, which is great for action cams. In fact an example on their website is using a GoPro ActionCam.

You can also convert 3D videos into 2D, burn subtitles, correct perspective, save everything to Matroska containers or many other formats and codecs.

They claim it is "The Only Full GPU Accelerated Video Processing Software" which can process full hardware acceleration and if you have a good video card can be up to 47x faster than real time processing. They have a chart: Up to 6x real-time processing with CPU only, up to 24x real-time processing when incorporating the GPU, and up to 47x with their unique full hardware acceleration which can peak Level-3 Hardware Acceleration. <they support Intel, AMD and NVIDIA video cards.

BTW it's quite a new product only being sold for leass than a year. It has 4k and I think even 8k capabilities, if your video card supports it (mine does not) :(.

They started a new website for it: which is really nicely made.

I think it's the next generation of their products, since less and less people are using DVDs.

Here is a well explained manual which very nicely shows most of the capabilities of the app:


They have an excellent deal, where you can buy a LIFETIME license - a lifetime full of upgrades - for just $29.95. Because this special Giveaway version is not upgradeable. Their normal price is $78.90 and they currently discount it 49% to the public on their website for $42.95. So in this special non-public deal you get another almost 30% off the discounted price.

Here you can buy the $29.95 lifetime deal:

Have a look at the enclosed short video, to see how the keystrokes are shown in the recording.

Thanks for all your sweet words.

2 TB or 4 TB storage (depending on plan you chose - discussed in 1st post) and unlimited bandwidth, f.e. if you add to the drive 1.5 TB today, after 1 week you delete that 1.5 TB and add 1.5 TB again, and do the same a few days later, you would have used up 3 x 1.5TB = 4.5 TB bandwidth and that is permissible under the unlimited bandwidth policy if you buy directly from or and NOT from a reseller.

Were you actually able to buy at these deals or did it just show like that?

Which country are you connecting from?


I wanted to introduce quite an interesting deal - with a few caveats:

ThunderDrive is a relatively new company in the Cloud Storage space and is trying to win a lot of customers.

They are having the following unlimited bandwidth (but of course limited storage of 2TB/4TB) deal:

2 TB storage space with unlimited bandwidth (here bandwidth is the combined amount of uploads and downloads to your cloud storage in a month) if bought directly from them with a one time lifetime (so NO yearly) fee.

The 4 TB plan comes up when you try to buy this package - then you will see a pop-up introducing an additional 2 TB for another $39, which makes it a grand total of $98.

You have 2 TB storage space with unlimited bandwidth for this price if you buy directly from them; their resellers who offer this same $59 package have a 2 TB/month bandwidth limitation.

The deal can be had here:

One should know that the service this young company offers, is still a little bit short on features.

Right now you can only upload through their web interface. No apps on any platforms yet.

The company plans to introduce apps for iOS and Android this quarter. In the final quarter there roadmaps states that they will start a desktop app, third party import and multi-user support. They also mentioning the introduction of a new pricing structure soon, which I take to mean a price increase, since I doubt that the current prices are sustainable and are probably serving as a capitalization boost to get the company going.

There roadmap is spelled out here:

Their website looks professional and has chat support. First a bot and then if the bot cannot answer you will be switched over to a human.

Oh before I forget: They DO have servers in North America AND in Europe. Your account will be placed on the European server, if you buy through, if you want to be placed on North American servers, buy through this website:

If anyone has used this service already, I would love to hear your experiences.

We both learned some things today. :) That's what life is for! Lol

Thanks for setting it up and checking - that's very helpful of you!

I know I am not such a frequent user as I used to be, but it always feels good to visit. It's like a home away from home (eeehhhh actually I don't have a home any more, since I became a nomad - Hahaha)
