CloudPull 2.4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Responding to this week’s shuttering of Google Reader, Golden Hill Software has released CloudPull 2.4.2 to disable backing up of Google’s RSS service while still providing access to your existing Google Reader backups. (If Google Reader’s demise is news to you, be sure to check out Josh Centers’ overview of RSS alternatives in “The State of Google Reader Replacements,” 27 June 2013.) The update also now backs up Gmail labels that start with either “[Gmail]/” or “[Google Mail]/” and adds capabilities for copying the name of an item or a link (if selecting a bookmark or Google Reader subscription) via a contextual menu. ($9.99 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 12.8 MB, release notes)
