Interarchy 7.2 Sports Useful New Features

Send Article to a Friend

Interarchy 7.2 Sports Useful New Features -- Stairways Software's Interarchy is a venerable file transfer utility, but two new features in the recently released Interarchy 7.2 are sure to be helpful to many users. A new Bookmark bar makes it easier to jump quickly to often-visited locations, and an Auto Uploads feature makes it possible to match a local folder to a remote destination, such that files dropped in the local folder automatically upload to the destination. Among other smaller changes, Stairways improved the contextual menu in Safari that makes it possible to download files from the Web using Interarchy. Interarchy 7 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or greater. If you already own Interarchy 7.x, the upgrade is free. [TJE]
