CloudPull 2.0.3 and 1.5.7

Send Article to a Friend

Golden Hill Software has updated both of its versions of CloudPull (2.0.3 for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and 1.5.7 for 10.6 Snow Leopard). Both releases of the backup program for Google data (see “Back Up Your Google Data with CloudPull,” 6 March 2012) put the brakes on the speed at which they request photos for contacts when backing up Google Contacts, as the apps were exceeding Google’s limits, causing some backups to fail. You can download or purchase both versions of CloudPull directly from the Golden Hill Software Web site (where you can take advantage of a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members), or purchase version 2.0.3 from the Mac App Store. Additionally, Golden Hill notes on its blog that the recent changeover from Google Docs to Google Drive (see “Google Drive and SkyDrive Take Aim at Dropbox,” 24 April 2012) is transparent in both the current Lion and Snow Leopard versions of CloudPull, but that the next releases will update the user interface text to reflect the change in nomenclature. ($24.99 new, free update, 7.4/6.2 MB)
